We enjoyed the small salad bar. My husband enjoyed his chili and toast. I had the fish snack with coleslaw, fries and bun. Plenty to eat.

Another of Port Dovers well known and very popular establishments for a very casual fish dinner. Very near the beach with an outdoor patio to enjoy the beautiful setting and nice warm weather while you savour a delicious meal.

I don't believe they shut down because of any seasonal issues and as such as open all year long. My mouth is watering just thinking about that delicious perch dinner, I also love their milkshakes, the real deals!
