I understand the nostalgia and 50's decor and the location on the beach. It's a great idea that dirty and tired. It would be a great experience if a full reno was done to make it fresh and functionally efficient. It's busy, and the food is what you'd expect for burgers, fish and chips. Ice cream is a good value... More

This is only a small place on the beach but service was good and fast. We had fish and chips and it was awesome.

I gave Hutch's a try yesterday due to the great reviews. Sadly, my experience left a lot to be desired. I ordered takeaway and was told it would be ready in 20 mins. I was there 15 mins later and waited in a huge line to pay (so no point in calling ahead to order). I drove less than 10... More

Of all the places that have come and gone in the last 50 years, Hutch's just seems to attract enough folks at BOTH locations to keep going year after year,after year...it's a REALLY tough business to be in, trying to secure enough product, at the volume levels this place needs to operate,so,besides the nostalgia, this lakeside restaurant operates at VERY...

Fun place to go, highlighted by large helpings of French fries, foot long hot dogs and old 50's type décor. Fun, fairly fast service, order, pay and wait for your number to be called. Tough to find a table at lunch time, lots of boardwalk activity if you're a people watcher. Worth the visit!

Stopped here for a snack after a drive along escarpment with family and friends. Even on a midweek day it was busy. You do get some good food tho or ice cream.fries are very good.

French Fries are big and tender. Hot dog is just the standard stuff. Hamburger just the regular old hamburger you get anywhere. Crammed with people and buzzing. Great place to take the kids. Ice cream out the back!

The only thing going for this place is the large amount of food that is given with the meal. The fries are just okay and the fish a little on the oily side. Our order for four was on a tray for pickup with as many fries on the tray as on the plates. Definitely not a favourite place to... More

Fish and chips for all appetites, burgers actually taste like real meat. Stand in line to order and then stand in line for your food. Good time to strike up a random conversation with complete strangers. If you still have room yummy icecream in a multitude of flavours of course after you stand in line again. Always a nostalgic experience.
