The tacos and burgers are good. The service is good. The view is excellent. We came early enough to avoid line ups. We will be back.

We went in October so it didn't have the beach traffic, but it was still fairly busy. Delicious food, OK server. I would definitely return to taste more of their menu!

Great chilli night with live music, The Feds. Excellent choice of different different chilli, salads, breads and nachos. Flat rate for all you can eat. Wonderful night with neighbours. The beach House is a landmark in Port Dover with the best view on the beach....More

There perch dinners I believe are 17-18 dollars. Their haddock and chips is between 12-14 dollars. Some changes at this restaurant. I was there last weekend and they have a new chef.
