It's been noted in other reviews that Port Dover must be suffering from a poor youth employee pool as the service at Knechtel's leaves much to be desired. The food is fine, but the staff seem incapable of getting anyone's order straight! I had read about this ahead of our own day at the beach, and was inclined to go... More

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
