Casual atmosphere with great food and reasonable price for the amount of food they provide. Try the combo plate of Perch & Pickerel for a little of both. They give large portions so if you are not overly hungry try the smaller serving. Worth the drive to Port Dover

If you like fish, order the perch dinner and you will love it. Comes with a salad bar which isn't too exciting. Quite small. Service was fine. One drawback is that they are not licenced so don't expect a beer with your meal.

I haven't really explored the whole menu. If you love fish, and especially perch, you will not be disappointed. No frills and great taste.

My family has been going to Knechtel's since . . . Forever! The perch is our favorite, along with the salad bar. No fancy frills, but good eats!

We have been coming to this restaurant for years, only because my in-laws like it. I don't know what they do to their food, but it all tastes like it just came out of a can. Not appealing to me at all. Even their hamburgers and milkshakes are crummy.

This was my first visit back to Port Dover in 35 years. Was a very young boy last time fishing with my dad. It was tough knowing which place was best to get fish and chips. The service was pleasant and efficient and the young lady serving helpful and recommended the fresh perch as her favourite. Very nice serving size... More

Great place to get some haddock, pickerel or perch! French fries were good too. I had a milkshake - more milk than ice cream, which made it easier to sip. They are a little overwhelmed on Friday the 13th, but every order gets filled. It was hot, and they have every condiment available. Love the old Coca-cola signs everywhere.

Knechtel's is a local favourite, so be prepared to stand in line for a few minutes. The crowd is après beach, so no need to dress up. This is a diner, so expect deep fried food. The perch and pickerel is out of this world good! We ordered the Dover combo--comes with perch, pickerel, fries and salad bar, but if... More

My wife and I were here last week, looking for some good fish and chips. Love the way the restaurant is set up. Nice wooden tables and lots of character. The server was very attentive and quick to take care of us. I ordered the 2 piece haddock & chips. Once our order was placed, we were told to help... More
