We dined here twice ;once in spring and once in July 2016.We always had the fish and chips.Nothing to rave about.Staff could be a bit friendlier and perhaps a smile once in a while would do.We found it understaffed since we had to wait for quite a while for our orders to be taken.

We came in at 1 pm on a Thursday. We were a party of 4. The server was friendly at first but that was the only positive. We waited an hour and a half for our food. Other people who arrived at the restaurant after us were served before us and were leaving before we had even received our food.... More

Food is decent. Escargot are fantastic. Decor needs updating, really really dated but I guess that could be part of the charm if you want to look at a positive attitude. Service.. service kinda sucks, waitresses almost seem disinterested once they serve your order to see how it is or if you need anything else. You shouldn't always need to... More

Every so often we take a trip to Lake Erie. Port Dover is a perennial favourite, but we like to vary our eating experiences. When we arrived at this restaurant, we realized it was the very first place we had patronized here. But that was some years ago. Had it changed? It was somewhat run down--in need of paint and,...

Staff was friendly but .... My friend and I ordered the perch platter to share. Come with salad bar and we opted for the additional fries. Salad bar was limited. It was ok. If you like salad bars, you will be disappointed. Suppose to come with 16oz plate, they gave us only 8oz but that's fine as the salad bar... More

Ordered the corned beef on rye and the meat was rubbery and asked for it not toasted and it was. Service was good but food left something to be desired

Went for fish and chips. Food was excellent but the service was terrible. We went on a Saturday night around 8 and it wasn't busy so we were kinda surprised with the service we received. Nice view of the Main Street if you can get the window seat.

This place has a great atmosphere, it is fishing themed. The restaurant is roomy with lots of tables even for bigger groups. There were 6 of us and we didn't have to wait long to place our order or get our food. I would recommend I think it was the junior fish, the burgers from what I could tell were... More
