Not the greatest experience. Visually, the restaurant is good on the outside, but, upon entry, we admitted this was a restaurant we would usually have left immediately. It appeared cluttered and disorganized. We waited at the door for a waiter for a while. We chose...a booth and were immediately shocked at the poor maintenance. It felt like springs protruding below the covering. The food was certainly not quality. My pickerel was slightly undercooked and mushy. In all, if we were not intent on supporting local businesses following the pandemic, we would have left before being seated.More

My daughter has a very restricted diet due to allergies, and we have difficulty finding restaurants where she can eat. The server and kitchen staff took special efforts to understand the restrictions in her diet, and prepared a wonderful pickerel dinner that she loved. My...son had wings, and my wife and I had the regular breaded pickerel, and all were excellent. Thank you so much. We'll be back!More

Staff were very friendly but disappointed with serving size. I ordered the pickerel not specifying the one or two piece fish on the menu. My spouse did specify the single dinner . My dinner arrived and to my disappointment the serving was a fillet plus...a very small second fillet. Most restaurants give equal size on a two piece. Fries were not to bad. A little pricey to my thinking.More

So busy & understaffed. Poor waitresses were running to handle everyone on the patio & there were several groups waiting for a table. We decided to only have a cool drink then go for a walk, so as not to require a table for just...the two of us. We tried to give a rushed waitress $15 for a draft beer & a white wine mistakenly thinking that would cover it, intending to leave extra on our picnic table for her but were informed it was $20! $ 10 for a Coors draft? For a white wine? In Port Burwell? Must be all the amenities offered. Like overlooking the Ojibway ship on dry land. I sure hope they are actually paying their girls as much as they overcharge. The staff, in fact, is the only thing worth stopping here. Cudos to them!More

This is a place we always enjoyed going to while in Port Burwell. Today we were very disappointed. We ordered ice tea and it was warm. They had none in the cooler and brought us a glass of ice to pour it into which never...did get cold. Ice tea was so warm it just melted the ice cubes. I ordered the battered shrimp and they were terrible. First I thought they roll over them to flatten them as thin as possible. Hardly no Shrimp inside the batter. Fries were okay but no coleslaw or anything else with it. My husbands haddock was a very small portion, bun was hard and nearly stale. Floors in the restaurant had food all over them, were dirty and it just didn’t feel clean. We were told it would take at least a half hour to get our food but somehow it arrived in 15 minutes. The server brought the bill and stood there and waited for us to get the money out right then and there to pay. Truly disappointed.More

There were 3 of us for Dinner. We chose to eat inside as a rain storm was approaching. Nice Patio Area overlooking Submarine. Old Style Restaurant on the inside, washrooms downstairs.. Fish Platter was excellent for 3 people. Lots to eat. Service was excellent.

The food was great. Took a long time and the lady was running around and could not keep the tables straight. I think her staff all called in sick. That is the reason for the 3 stars, plus the perch was super expensive. Almost there...price of a steak dinner. It’s more like fast food but not many option in Burwell. All the businesses have gone under.More

We were on a road trip and came across this place. We ate on the patio as per Covid rules. The view of the Ojibwa was nice. Maybe we were there on a bad day(Wednesday afternoon) but the service while friendly it was terribly slow....We shared an order of clam strips(pieces) and garlic mussels. Quite pricey for the portions. I'd stop by for a drink again but no food.More

Stopped by for lunch today after a recommendation from our Air BNB hosts. Really wanted to try some local fish and chips being so close to Lake Erie. WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED!!! The meal was so good and was the perfect amount of Fish and Fries!...The fish was cooked perfectly and the fries were cooked to perfection! ALSO, the service was above and beyond. Our server (Though I forget her name) was so kind to us and asked about our day and made sure we were taken care of! We will be returning 100% on our next visit!More

Stopped in for a quick lunch. The food took 50 minutes to arrive. The perch burger consisted of a tiny portion of fish with a slice of tomato and a small piece of lettuce. The fries were OK. Very overpriced and sloppy service. We will...never go back.More

Ordered what I thought would be fish and fries with option of side salad. Asked for ceaser salad to start as an appitizer. Waitress brought the fish out and no fries. Told fries are extra. Cost close to $30 for a side salad and 4...small pieces of perch. No drink other then water. Will not visit again. Left hungry and went across the street to buy a burger.More

Basically a sit down fast food restaurant. The Izzy burger was great. The waitress seemed a little scattered brained. Didn't bring an extra batch of napkins I had asked for. Umbrellas on picnic tables on the patio. U can see the submarine down by the...river which is kinda cool.More
