OK. I am one of those who has come to the Arbor since I was three years old. Here's the drill. Line up, get a foot long and some "Glow". Wolf it down (and maybe get a "Hamburg" with the wacky relishes). Then, walk it off at the pier or the beach. This is my Nirvana (not the grunge band).... More

If Richie and the Fonz came to Dover they would hang out at the Arbor. They have maintained a tradition for their dogs and their orange drink, Golden Glow.

The best fries - have them pour into abox - so you can spray them with vinegar - salt and pepper - don't forget to order the foot long hot dogs - we always stop here when in Dover - too bad they are not open all year

Best hot dogs and toppings ever. They are so good, can't wait for the weather to warm up and head back down to Dover for another

Okay .. I have eaten here many times, but had the shock of my life that it now costs just under $20.00 to have two hotdogs and fries. Come on, this is just too much. I know people line up to get this hotdog, but the last time the weiner was not hot. The condiments are still great, but far... More

You order your food at a take out window. We had a hot dog and French fries. There is limited out door seating beside the Arbor. It seemed to me that most people stood outside and ate their food. Some people walked to the beach to eat. The serviice was good and we didn't have to wait too long for... More

Haven't been here in years as I haven't been to port Dover for over 20 years. I grew up in simcoe so visited often when a child. They have added good seating areas since I used to come. Although it has certainly gotten more pricey over the years. There is nothing better than those childhood memories of going to the... More

If you want a hot dog, fries and a drink you have order at 3 different Windows paying for each item individually for each item. The order window are located on the side walk combined with over flowing smelly garbage and cramped sitting area

We have been going to Port Dover for the past 50 years for a drive when the warm weather arrives. We walk along the beach and pier and look through the shops. Some of the shops have very nice beach clothes. We drove out on Mon Aug 17 when it was very hot and humid. We stopped at Arbor. They... More
