My wife and I went for breakfast. Normally wait staff are friendly but this morning no smile, no conversation, slow service. When the food finally arrived it was warm not hot. Getting a coffee refill was impossible.

The Dover Dairy Bar has been a mandatory stop for me since vacationing in Port Dover as a child. My parents would take us to the "Dover" on our way to the Park where we would sit, eat our ice cream treats, and enjoy the music being played in the bandshell. Many years later, we continue to stop for that... More

Hello Stopped in here 08/26/16. Approx 8pm. There is 2 signs for this place. One says closed at 8 and one says closed at 9. I would suggest closing permanently. The bathroom was filthy with broken handle and smelt of 50 years of non cleaning. There were 4 people in the place. 1 server 1 cook and 2 patrons. The... More

I ordered breakfast and asked for Peanut Butter and Marmalade. When the big heavy set waitress brought it over, my coffee cup was empty and sitting on the edge of the table in plain view to her that it was empty. There was no peanut butter or marmalade just 1 small package of jam. The bill that she left showed... More

The Dairy Bar offers meals for all times of the day. But it's there breakfast that makes me return once a week. Big portions and a great price. And it's good too.

A casual family place to eat Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner. Friendly service, huge sundae's and the food is always good and very affordable. I have been going here for years and it's true the decor hasn't changed but it's part of it's charm.

We stopped in the first time on Friday the 13th, and the restaurant was packed with patrons, including a queue of people waiting for tables, so we didn't stay. We stopped in again over the weekend when in town for Fish Fest. The restaurant was a mess. Most of the tables were empty, but none of them were clean. Leftover... More
