Everybody in our group likes perch. It is always done to perfection and the salad bar is also an added feature.

I have been to the " booth" many times the assorted salads are always fresh and tasty. The perch and pickerel are FANTASTIC it is a great place to stop for a quick lunch. There is also standard restaurant flair for food. Burgers, dogs etc. It is well worth the trip to visit!

Did the take out window and sat at a picnic table beside the beach looking out over Lake Erie. Nice warm fall day and it was great. Service was fast and the food excellent - my son normally doesn't like coleslaw but loved it here. Fries were good but the highlight was the walleye - so often can be greasy... More

If you go to Port Dover, you have to try the local perch. We were not disappointed with the 4 piece perch dinner. Started with the basic salad bar (really just lettuce and pasta salad, but OK for a starter), then we were served a generous helping of fries, OK coleslaw, fresh bun and fresh battered perch. Fish was well... More

Fish n chips is good. Meals come with the salad Buffett which is a nice treat to have before meal arrives. Great ice cream too :) Service a bit slow but it's always busy when I have been.

I had the Perch dinner and my wife had the Perch bites. Both were good, although I found eating with a plastic knife and fork a bit of a chore on some of the tougher pieces. The service was good - friendly and fast. In addition, the price was great so I would certainly recommend this place to others.

We walked to this outdoor cafe to have the ice cream and they provide a small park with pic-nic setting for their customers to use. A great idea for us to SIT and take our time under the trees.

This is one a few establishments in Port Dover that offer excellent fresh fish (although according to my daughter-in-law it is the best). Most of us had perch dinners with salad bar and poutine (the gravy is made in-house from their roast beef). This was a great meal at low prices in a restaurant ideal for family and friends dining...

We ate at Knechtel's on the Beach, and it was a perfect end to a beach day at Port Dover. Nothing fancy, but fried Lake Eric perch and pickerel hit the spot. Fresh and tasty and totally unpretentious. We liked eating at the picnic tables on the beach right beside the take-out stand.

I had to run down to Port Dover yesterday to do a favour for a business I know. Before I headed back to Toronto I headed down to the beach area to see the area, having not been in Port Dover since university days (in other words quite a while). I was attracted to Knechtel's at first simply to get... More
