The perch here was fantastic - best perch I've ever had in a restaurant. It is offered cooked three different ways: panko crusted & fried; blackened; or sauted in garlic butter. The fried had a wonderful very thin crust & was perfect. The sauted is...a great choice for anyone with a shellfish allergy and the garlic butter taste was very mild and did not overwhelm the delicate perch. Sweet potato fries were very thin & crispy. Staff were very friendly & efficient. Also, a very decent wine list for a small family restaurant. Note: a recent reviewer said this place was over-priced. I disagree - perch is quite expensive these days. The prices here were comparable or less than prices I've seen elsewhere.More

This is a nice family-run place and they are making a good go of it. The staff were very friendly and their patio was an oasis (we were visited by a hummingbird!). They are nicely situated near the National Park. And my friend and I...had two very fine burgers, she had the "Freddy Burger" with their special garlic sauce and I had the Perch Burger special. They were both tasty and came with a LOT of french fries - great fries but more than we needed. But the prices! Really too much for what you get. I understand it is hard to make a go of it these days but I just don't know if $18 for a burger is justified, no matter how good the burger is. Some of their other menu options (which we didn't try) also seemed way too much for what they should have been. I don't know the economics of running a restaurant in Leamington. I want to really like this place, hence the "Very Good" review. But if you are concerned about price points, you might want to avoid it. Oh - and ignore anything their website says about live music on Wednesdays. It isn't happening these days.More

Went for Lunch with another couple and ordered 3 pc perch and 5 pc perch. Tiny pieces of fish served on less than a leaf of lettuce and a few fries. (no coleslaw) 2 ice teas - bill over $70.00. Their bill was even more...as they had ordered 2 - 5 pc perch and water to drink - While the food was tasty, we certainly will not be visiting again. Server (owner) appeared very stressed and abrupt. Not a great experience. There are many excellent restaurants in the Leamington, Kingsville, area. too bad he is trying to recover his lost (covid) revenue on the lunch menu.More

We enjoyed our lunch on the patio under the locust trees and beside the grapevines and elephant ear plants. Started with the tasty fattoush salad followed by generous portions of pan seared pickeral for myself and the blackened yellow perch for my wife. Charming staff...and a most enjoyable lunch. The best of it’s kind as we have been sampling these dishes on the Lake Erie north shore between Port Dover, Erieau, Pelee Island and Point Pelee.More

We were visiting Point Pelee National Park and stopped on our way out. The outdoor seating area is lovely with colorful vegetation and flowers. The special of the day was the perch tacos, something I have not had since my last visit home. We added...the fries with gravy a staple I have also missed. The food was delicious. The server was attentive and pleasant seating us quickly. I would go back in a heartbeat if given the opportunity.More

Passed by this place on the way to Pt Pelee, stopped for lunch. Ordered the perch tacos and the recommended Freddy's burger. Good-size burger, filling too. But it arrived cold, as with the fries. Tacos were fine, my wife enjoyed her meal. Both brings you...over $45, which is a bit pricey.More

We were so glad Freddy’s patio was open for our annual stay at Duck Pond B&B. I had the chicken kebob with rice, my husband had perch tacos with rice. I wasn’t fond of the rice so next time will upgrade to poutine. The perch...portion is VERY small. We were still hungry after our meal so split a small poutine. Madison was a delightful server and the patio furniture is very comfortable. We’ll be back on our next visit to Leamington.More

Consider the Tater Tot. Imagine three of them on a small plate, accompanied by a bowl of mediocre French fries. That’s the breadth and scope of the $20 three-piece perch “dinner” here at Freddy’s. Cole slaw is extra, and not very good. But where Freddy’s...really shines is in the service. Our server left us on the patio for at least 20 minutes. Around us, other servers were fouling up simple orders with aplomb, and people were complaining. The people at the table next to us, patiently awaiting a second round of drinks and their food order after 30 minutes, were offered dessert. The manager came out to check on things, and when he asked how our experience had been, I told him, politely. I suggested that his staff might benefit from some basic training. Instead of apologizing or offering a make-good, he decided to argue with me, and complained about how he just couldn’t get good staff because of COVID-19. He made similar remarks to the complaining customers around us. If you look through the management comments on negative reviews posted below, you’ll get the drift. Ridiculous prices, bad service—it’s always someone else’s fault. The perch? I’ve had better. And the portions, so small! Birdie’s Perch just down the road would likely be a much better choice.More

Your comments are completely inaccurate. Perch is extremely expensive and very hard to catch. Fishing boats are going out and coming back with 13lbs or maybe 150lbs. Normal catch is 2000lbs minium. This is causing more of a market price scenario. We have been avoiding...More
