We summer vacation in the area (Long Point) so we try to get over to Dover at least once in the summer. The food and atmosphere are not upscale dining but it is decent pub food. The celery bread is always great and we usually split a perch platter and have never been disappointed. Until this past January. We happened to be in the area on a Monday and stopped in for lunch. Of course it's off season but the restaurant remains open so we did expect decent food.

The chicken wings were actually terrible and the other two main dishes were just okay. How do you screw up chicken wings? Hold them in the freezer until they are burned and then cook them until there's nothing left of them.

We will go back in the summer but definitely won't make the mistake of going to eat in the winter.

I've been coming here for 25 years. The perch dinner is as good as it gets and the celery bread is a tasty addition. It's almost always full and that in itself speaks volumes about the quality of food and service.

Dealt with this resturant (Andrew) , for our wedding. It was a fantastic meal that the Cove put on for us. I would suggest either the beef or the perch, both of which were served for us. I was in so much pain(full from being a pig) on my wedding day because of the fact that I had to try everything that was served to us because it was so good. If I were to suggest a function or just a relaxing meal , this would be it in Port Dover.

Take a trip back in time for the way great food used to be - quality ingredients, cooked perfectly, and without all the fuss. Best perch anywhere if you like it without all the breading. Don't miss the celery bread, coleslaw and rice pudding! Makes for the perfect ensemble. Always great, never disappointing!

Although this restaurant has had a face lift, it still has the same feel. The food is always consistent. The salads that are brought to your table are fresh and tasty. The perch is wonderful, cooked to perfection. If you want a more casual dining experience, you can go upstairs and order ice, cold draught and platters of perch. What a great way to end a summer's day! Can hardly wait.....
