I've been going to Fisherman's Catch for the perch dinner (own by Knetchel Foods) going on 25 years and the quality and quantity have never changed. The service has always been excellent. This place is a prime example of when you have a good thing don't mess with it. So many restaurants start out good but end up cutting portions... More

Went in for dinner and had the evening's special. Slow cooked pork roast with apples marinated in wine with mashed potatoes (Your choice of potatoes) and fresh vegetables, bun and included the salad bar. Salad bar consists of mixed lettuce salad, macaroni salad, beets, carrot and raisin salad, tomatoes, jellied fruit salad, bean salad and a cucumber salad. Various dressings.... More

Nice location and cosy setting, quite familiar. The fish wasn't very tasty (it's lake fish...), while scallops weren't so bad. Huge portion of soup du jour (mushrooms) but everything not special. Just average dinner in the lakefront.

Good value for perch, pickerel, plus the salad bar is a nice touch. Think they offer senior discount? Good service, notice the same servers throughout the years!! Price is good for what you get!!

Went in for a beer and a late bite to eat. Ordered potato skins and what we got was something that had been cooked at some previous time and then warmed up. They were burnt and dried out. No Canadian made draft beer anymore. Bud Lite or Rolling Rock....ugh. Beer price is too high and when I complained bar tendered... More

above average food for what we expected. Went in with low expectations (worn - needs a reno & gets a 6 out of 10 on cleanliness). The salad bar was okay, but nothing special. Ribs were fall off the bone good. We are on the Atkins Diet (Protein with low carbs, no sugar) so asked for the ribs with no... More

Average fish restaurant among many to choose from. Right near the beach so a lot of people coming and going. The fish was okay and fresh. Service a little slow (1 1/2 hours for lunch)

Spent a nice evening in here eating with the kids. The portion sizes were huge and we ate enough to sink the ship! I felt they could make more of the fact that the fish is local and done a bit more than just fry it, everything seemed to come in a nice even brown coating. It was still a... More
