“Fried Fish - What can you say?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

Beach restaurant with predictable fare. Bar food etc etc etc - Fisherman's Catch, Knechtels, Callahan's all serve essentially the same food - atmosphere is slightly different in each - beh!

“This is a very informal place to have great fish.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

This is the second time I've eaten at Knechtel's. It's not fancy: they give you paper plates and plastic ware. The fish was really good, nicely battered, crispy on the outside, and hot (temperature). The fries and the cole slaw were good as well. The salad bar is small, and I didn't care for most of the items which were pre-mixed salads: cucumber, carrot raisin, etc. A large bowl of fruit was part of the salad bar, which made a nice dessert.

The place is decorated as if it was someplace special quite a few years ago.

One other note: the place wasn't the cleanest. There was quite a bit of stuff on the floor, including food. And last summer, the first time I ate there, there were quite a few flies coming through the open ice cream window.

I rate Knechtel's average overall because even though most of the food is very good, the atmosphere is very casual and not the cleanest. If you like good fish, and don't care much about the other stuff, you should try it at least once. There are people who go to Port Dover just to eat at Knechtel's.

“Perch, Perch, Perch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

Perch is always good, but I also love the hotdogs, burgers and milkshakes !!!!!!!!!! Salad bar is a nice addition and I always love partaking in it.
