“Perch Dinners at The Roxy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

While camping at a local Provincial Park it began to rain so we went on a tour. In passing through Port Stanley we decided to have lunch at The Roxy. Since Port Stanley has alot of commercial fishing trawlers moored there we decided to try some of the local cuisine, nameably the Perch.
PROS
- diner appeared clean and not worn dorn
- decor was nice - very diner like
- staff who served us was very friendly and greeted us warmly
- place wasn't overcrowded
- food came to us fast and hot
- prices are ok - average for this type of restaurant

CONS
- fish selection on the menu was limited and did not have pickerel (also a commercially harvested fish from Lake Erie

Overall we liked our visit and would recommend this site.

“Good down home dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We were looking for a light dinner before heading over to the theatre and found it here at Roxy's. The location was great....right across the road from our show.....and the meal was perfect. We wanted something easy and good and found it here. The server was friendly and worked hard to give us an enjoyable experience. Thanks!

“Average Food and Understaffed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

We stopped here last week for a bite to eat while passing through the area. The Diner décor was not overdone but represented the old movie era with Posters on the walls and large movie reels as props. Our waitress seemed tired and "frazzled" as she was the only server we saw. She was almost running trying to look after all the patrons but still courteous under the circumstance. Another lady, who may have been the hostess finally helped a bit. It was just average food and the price was not bad considering it's a high tourist area.

“Not bad, average fried food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

My husband and I tried the Roxy this afternoon for lunch. We found the food was average but good. The service was a bit slow, but they were very busy...so understandable. I had a poutine and tried perch for the first time, was not a fan of the fish but used to salt water fish from the Maritimes. The poutine was great, homemade fries ! My husband had a burger and fries and found it was average, but good. So overall an average fried food experience for us !

“Pig Slop Cuisine and Service to Match”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

I did not have high expectations as this is a family restaurant serving the most basic food. However, I would not have expected the fries to be saturated in overused oil and burgers/ sandwiches to be devoid of any taste.

The waitress was surly. A crusty old hen who did not like her job and let us know it.

An unforgettable dining experience.
