I have gone to knechtels for years... It's part of my favourite childhood memories. Our family always take our relatives from Scotland and England there. We have experienced amazing service when sitting inside. This review however is NOT a good one!!! I hope the owner reads this because you need to give your manager and staff a wake up call!!!!...

Perch dinner special today for $8.99 was deadly. Wife and I each had one and the fish was fresh and good sized (4pcs). Wife had a milkshake and was meh. I have never been disappointed with the fish here!

The perch was tasty but would not go there again. The people behind the counters were less that cordial or helpful. It seemed it was an effort to service us (we went twice) but it didn't improve the second time. Prices not cheap.

Good, honest fresh fish and food. Good service. Totally consistent. We love it. I'm not a big fan of fries, so we usually order one perch dinner and then four extra pieces of perch on the side. Value for money cannot be equalled.

The meal is good, no doubt about that: perch was fresh and delicious, batter was good; french fries a little bit salty for my taste; salad bar fantastic. I loved the cucumber and the dressing. Service was prompt and the young lady who waited on us was helpful in deciding what to order for the child in our group. But... More

Went to Port Dover for a couple of days and decided to try the fried perch. It was so delicious that I went back the next day for the same thing. The fish tasted fresh, not too oily, batter wasn't too heavy. My only criticism is that the fries left a little to be desired. Otherwise good value for the... More

The food is good ( foot longs & Fish ), the service is kinda slow some days. The bathrooms need work, and the interior is dated. But if your at the beach and want something to eat its the best spot.
