“The gem of cottage country”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Molly and OJ's have been around for years. It is situated in Eireau On in a quaint cottage town with the "O" on one side and Lake Eirie on the other.

This has to be my favourite place to eat in the whole area. Again a pleasant drive to get to it but well worth it. Their food is great and the atmosphere is nautical. Their Clam Chowder is out of this world. Even better than some I have had at the coast. They specialise in Perch and Pickeral and Prime rib but have lots of other delights on their extensive menu.
The locals know Molly and OJ's well but if you are visiting you can't go wrong.

“Worth the trip for perch”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

The atmosphere hasn't changed in years... so, a little dated and dark ~ however, the food & service are excellent and worth the drive out to Erieau to enjoy your meal. Reservations are a must as its a very busy establishment and we suggest you request the far room as its better lit and the most open. Lemon pepper perch is fantastic and the ribs were fall off the bone. Nice for special occasions and daily specials are worth checking out.

“Great dining experience -”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

For a small town, this restaurant is extremely well established. Even though Erieau is a summer community, this restaurant is busy all year long. The menu is pretty much the same year after year, so you can always count on getting your favorite dishes. They specialize in fish, pasta and prime rib, and their clam chowder soup is excellent.

“Great Restaurant in out of the way Erieau”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We went for a leisurely lunch on a Tuesday afternoon. We had the Perch Special. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful.
The meals came promptly and it was amongst the best Perch I have had. We are sure to return!
