See my earlier review of the Erie Beach Hotel. I erred in thinking it was for the dining room and completed the review on that premise.

Four of us went for dinner and two of us ordered the cod. It was over battered, not cooked right and doughy. Neither one of us ate it after tasting it. The waitress did ask if she could replace it but we were ready to leave. She did not even adjust the price on the bill. You really could not... More

A friend had been traveling back to this childhood "special dinner restaurant" for decades. We were invited to explore this restaurant in the Erie Beach Hotel - a 70 years old establishment with him and his wife. I was excited to travel to this small beach town near Lake Erie, Port Dover at Norfolk County. However, I was hesitated for... More

Fish is always good with great service. We had a large family outing and we all enjoyed our meal. The service was very good as well.

Famous for fish (perch) and chips, that's what we ordered. It came with fries (I chose sweet potato fries), salad and their famous celery bread. It did not disappoint. Fresh, flavourful fish. We started with white sangria with wine from a local vineyard. There are many other items on the menu, but, for me, it's always the perch and fries.

After hearing about this institution for years, and reading many positive reviews, I have wanted to come here for some time. The initial impression was great - excellent location, lovely building, nice dining room, pleasant server....and then...the salad cart arrived, after being "refreshed". Salads from a different era, when processed food was thought to be great and progressive, and fresh... More

I am regular at the Erie Beach Hotel Cove Dining Room and I am a resident of Dover. My brother was visiting my husband and I on a Saturday in July and insisted on having dinner at the Erie Beach Dining Room. It was very busy, which is always a good sign, but you would never know it by the... More

Our friend decided to have his 60th Birthday celebration here and it was really a great afternoon. The food is expensive but consistently good. There really is no ambiance other than a very old building at a beach town. It is almost always busy though so I guess that says something about their food and beer. The servers are very... More
