Dined at The Beach House last week while on vacation. I took a day trip to Port Dover on an unusually warm Fall day. Most of the beach concessions were closing or already closed for the season. So I chose to have lunch at The Beach House. Beautiful setting facing the Beach. It was extremely windy that day so the... More

If you want a view of Lake Erie, this is one of the best in Port Dover. Unfortunately the free here can be hit or miss. The last two times that we were here the food was a miss. A lot of the food is pre cooked and then frozen and reheated. If you insist on eating here, order the... More

This restaurant with both inside and outside seating has been a go to for a very long time. I had the pan fried pickerel which was nicely presented. I think someone had a accident in the kitchen with a teaspoon of oregano, which spoiled it for me. I returned one other night and ordered the mussels. I requested my server... More

We were close to Port Dover and from my daughter's suggestion we made the trip down from the airport . Well we were so surprised to find this gem and so late in the season. There were many still enjoying the beach and loads enjoying the patio at the beach Cafe. The food was excellent and lots to choose from,... More
