Bathrooms are ok...not as fancy as some...but... More

Wednesday wing night is the best. Fresh hot wings with your choice of sauce on the side is the way we prefer them and the Wiz does it the best. The staff is friendly and courteous.

The Wismer House is the best pub in Port Elgin, whenever I'm over from the UK (a few times a year) my family and I love to visit, food is brilliant (although I do miss their mozza sticks!) and also great fun in the evening. When visiting and wanting a night out a bit more than just sitting down in... More

We have been there on several Monday nights this summer for their $10.00 wood fired pizza special. A great deal! Pizza is awesome & enough for 2 people. Order a side salad...Greek is perfect. I also love their Bloody Caesars.

The Wismer has awesome wings. It has an excellent street patio. This is marred by the proliferation of smokers (maybe just when we were there?). Anyway, it made it difficult for us to enjoy the outside sunshine with a beer and food. We also saw lots of cigarette butts just outside the railings.
