Good for type of restaurant it is

This is a beach town and I'm sure it's hard to get good temporary staff. That being said, our service was ok and the food quite good. The perch snack was quite ample for lunch and the price was reasonable - included salad bar. Will be back.

Remember exactly what it is, a beachside shack serving burgers, dogs, fish and fries. Prices are reasonable, fish is over breaded but tasty. Location is great. Ice cream available too, many flavours. Doesn't over promise or over deliver.

Ate here 6 years ago. Nice place to stop for a quick bite after a day at the beach. Nothing fancy. Perch dinner is the fan fav. It was ok. Just your typical fast food place. Crowded, not the cheapest and should give you a number after taking your order.

9pm Friday night, my girlfriend and I ordered a poutine each for a decent price. However when we tried them, both were cold, but the fries were hot at least. Gravey was room temperature so I complained. They gave me two more with room temperature gravy, so I mentioned it again. Then they proceeded to microwave them. They did, however,... More

Or maybe my taste buds have matured and my patience has waned. We came here for our last hurrah of summer to have our traditional Knetchel's feast but sadly; our expectations were not met. I've been going to Knetchel's every summer for over 35 years and the last few years have become mere echoes of the Knetchel's that I grew... More

Great place for Fish and Chips. Salad bar is mediocre, but hey, at least there is one. Waitresses are very friendly, and it really is a good value for your money

Dined at knechtels on the beach in Dover. Hasn't changed in years. It was cold outside so it was cold inside. The best thing here is the perch. But tonight I got that one thing that I can't handle. Overlooked food that is served cold. I watched our waitress keep our fry cook from watching our food cook , which... More
