Great local hotspot, known throughout the area and by returning tourists as The Wiz. The food is good and inexpensive, the staff and regulars are extremely friendly and in the warm months the Patio with live bands is a great place to spend the night and really enjoy your vacation away from the big city and let your hair down...

Average drink prices, decent food, 2 pool tables and urban music radio playing downstairs but nothing special. Go to bar any night in port elgin definitely a younger urban crowd. The DJ upstairs has zero talent and is almost annoying how bad he is. Not amazing but best in port hands down

The atmosphere attracted us to this restaurant. The patio tables were filled up with diners enjoying Live music. After a short wait we were seated and enjoyed the summer evening and Music. We ordered the nights special (wings) and a pulled pork sandwich. The wings were fresh and hot but the Sandwich, which was supposed to be served on a... More

This was the best meal we had in Port Elgin, largely because it exceeded our expectations. The pretzel turkey sandwich was awesome, the pizzas were delicious, the mac and cheese was very good and the nachos were also delicious. Service was friendly and attentive. We really enjoyed our lunch here. We'll definitely be back next time we're in Port Elgin.

We have been to the Wismer four times in the last month twice each for dinner and lunch. Service was great and food good too! They have an interesting take on old favourites. The fish and chips are very good with an interesting coleslaw on the side and potatoes chip batter on the fish. Large portions so we easily could... More

Stopped on our way to Port Eglin for a late lunch on Sunday afternoon. They offered a special of hamburgers and bloody caesars - who could resist! There was a very good blues band playing songs by Ray Charles, the weather was perfect, and the prices were affordable. Definitely will return.

We have really enjoyed our visits to The Wismer House this summer whether for taco night, wing night, or just to enjoy a beverage or two. Terrific flowers decorate the spacious patio. Staff are very attentive.

We stopped here Tuesday afternoon and there were a few tables outside but there was no one inside. I had the hummus plate which was hard to tell which hummus I was eating. It came with a large amount of crostini which starts to hurt your mouth after a few. The homemade bread and butter pickles were a surprise.

Thank Jennifer S
