We stopped in on Easter weekend and it was nice and quiet. The decor is very much pub like, family restaraunt with a marine theme. Sitting right on a bay it's a nice location. My wife and I both had fish and chips. Unlike traditional fish this was breaded but we actually enjoyed the change, Not a big fan of... More

Took a drive to the lake and stopped here for late lunch on a Sunday in February. My burger tasted like it was homemade (it's not) and my husband said his wings were very good. Under $10 for a burger w fries and $12 for wings w fries and bleu cheese. Generally it's $12 for just wings and nothing else... More

Awesome food, great service and a all around great atmosphere. We drive from Hamilton knowing we will have a meal to remember that is at a reasonable price.

The food was good. I ordered a chicken burger it was good except the bun smelled like a burger I'm assuming as it was grilled, that was unpleasant. The salad was a nice size.

If you are ever in the Port Rowan area, you need to get the perch dinner at the Boathouse. It is 3 times as much as you will get in Port Dover and twice as good. The staff is hit and miss and like to close early on slow nights. Other than that, good food, good price.

I enjoyed going for wings. Honey garlic is my favourite along with Bundy and Tequila Lime. You must order at least five in one flavour. Ordered a small side greek salad, very good. If you order their trifle you best be sharing, it is excellent, served warm, very rich. Tough for one person to consume on his/her own. Liver and... More

The twinkling lights beckoned me off the Erie lakeshore road to this rustic restaurant. I was welcomed by the very busy waitress who was quickly taking orders and serving up plates heaped full of dinners that were coming out of the kitchen at an amazingly fast rate. My order of lightly breaded fish and home-cut fries arrived piping hot and... More

Went for lunch on a drab dreary cold day to try to add some life to our day. Food was ok had the fish. Server was a real crank and didn't seem interested to be there. Made us feel unwelcome with her lack of smiles and compassion. Felt she needs to find a new line of work. The server also... More
