“Excellent perch”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

If you are looking for good food (perch and other fish), reasonably priced, prompt friendly service, in this out of the way location - look no further. In fact, if you are in the vicinity and want good Lake Erie perch - forget Port Dover, and take the drive to Port Maitland. Frankly, we couldn't believe it in terms of quality of preparation over Port Dover locations.
We've gone to Port Dover for perch for the last 30 years...never disappointed at the Erie Beach location ...but we didn't know the perch served at Thirsty Mate is MUCH better! This is a tiny venue with a fabulous view and fabulous perch.

“Great beautiful view”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Have a nice lunch, nothing exceptional, but good food. Enjoy the views, overlooks the Grand River, beautiful. Take a drive around Dunnville and lake and then drop in here outside of town on road to Port Maitland and have your lunch. Has a license.

“Nice and Little Price”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

The food here is very good and very reasonable in price. The setting is nice overlooking the water. It can not seat a lot of people at once so expect a little wait if going during busy times.

“Park your boat!”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

It's great. You can park your boat at their dock and go in to eat. Great food. On the Grand River just a stone's throw away from Lake Erie.
