Where everyone comes to have Perch.

The Erie Beach Hotel has been in the same family for over 50 years and offers a comfortable atmosphere for enjoying the best perch that Lake Erie can offer. There is a variety of food for all ages, even if you don't like fish. I would recommend the soup of the day and the rice pudding... read more

We enjoyed the bread served as well as the cucumber salad. The Arctic Char was delicious but it was a very small piece for the price of the meal and the mashed potatoes were dry. Delicious chocolate cheesecake dessert and good coffee. Nice atmosphere and I would return.

If you love home made salads, you'll love this place. We often go at lunch, as it usually includes the salad bar. I'm sure you won't be dissappointed.

Our group visited the Erie Beach Hotel in Port Dover, ON Canada in early December for an excellent and once again an elegant and excellent dining experience in the Cove Room. The turkey and all the trimmings were excellent and I would highly recommend this to everyone. You can always visit the Simcoe Lights which are nearby. The lights experience... More

Liked everything, disliked nothing! The food is in my review, there was lots of delicious food, and the service was great! I can't imagine anyone leaving there hungry.

In two weeks' time, our group will be dining at the Cove Room and we are looking forward to having a turkey dinner with all the trimmings. Our last two visits, the turkey was excellent but service was rushed too much.

This is our third visit to the Erie Beach Hotel restaurant. It was just as delicious as I remember it many years ago. Everything was fresh and appetizing.

We stopped by for lunch on a weekday, the restaurant was not busy. Friendly and cheerful wait staff. Ordered wings, they were nothing special. I have had much better wings. Order a beer and a glass of wine, pleasant but not a memorable experience. We will try some place else next time.

We drove out of our way to have a late lunch at the Erie Beach Hotel and sat waiting for someone to take out order...they never came. 20 minutes waiting for service is long enough. It's not difficult...customers sit - you take their order...or at least acknowledge they're there. There was plenty of wait staff around...some served drinks - some... More
