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

Overlooked food that is served cold. I watched our waitress keep our fry cook from watching our food cook , which... More

Food is greasy and management and wait staff have an excuse for why everything is bad , there is a reason you pay before you get your food , it's garbage . You would think tourist restaurants would care about... More

Went to Knechtels today for lunch after getting no service from Fisherman's Catch. Got a seat asked for a high chair and the kid brought us a booster seat which the grandchild is to small for. When we did get a highchair it was dirty. After 10 min's trying to ask for a wet cloth to clean the highchair and... More

Over nine dollars in change in my pocket.... I must be in Canada. I don’t know the reason that the dollar coin has never been popular in the US but I have found Canada’s loonies and toonies to be rather convenient. The fellow at the bank where I exchanged my US currency indicated that Canada has been thinking about introducing... More

Was there yesterday and was very disappointed with the price increase.. We ordered 3 perch platters that's supposed to be 10 pieces of fish. most of the pieces were the size of my baby finger. We have been going there for years but after this experience most likely not return as often. Large fries was enough to feed one person...... More
