We went to Scolfields for a birthday celebration for a friend. We were not disappointed by the food or service. However, we waited quite awhile for our meal after it was ordered. Once it arrived it was delicious. We did ask for bread while we waited and were told it would cost $2.00!!! What a surprise in a restaurant of... More

This is one of the few restaurants in Port Dover that has a different menu then the local fare of fish and chips. Service is excellent and the lunchs and dinners are good. Make a reservation if you are going for dinner.

My wife and I love this restaurant. Last week when we went the initial service was good. We ordered wine, which was brought quickly, but from there it went downhill. We ordered appetizers which took a while to get but we ordered our main course at the same time and it took 1 1/2 hours to come. Everyone in the... More

First of all, I want to state that the servers are excellent at this restaurant but they could do little about the fact that the kitchen failed to prepare our meals (my husband and I) in a timely fashion on two occasions. It is unfortunate because the first few times we visited Schofields, we had a great time and were... More

Everything was just ok. The food wasn't interesting, the menu was very generic, but the price was too high for the quality offered. Overall, it was just not as good as I'd hoped for and everything had undertones of balsamic vinegar.

Had a $50 gift certificate so we went for dinner with friends. Didn't even come close for covering our bill for 2 people. We did not have drinks. $11 for a Caesar salad. Ridiculous! No butter for the baked potato, just sour cream. I had the smothered chicken. It was good but small portion. Husband had the pickerel, only one... More

A great little place on the Main Street, with a small but good menu. We decided on the local pan seared pickerel with mashed potatoes and veg. Portions were good with great flavours but I wish the fish had crispy skin, still great though. We had crab cakes with a red pepper aioli and the flavours were excellent with nice... More

Located on the main street beside the theatre. My friends and I enjoy the atmosphere and good service when we get together for lunch. There are many good salads and sandwiches to choose from. The wine menu is nice as well. The steak is also good if you go for dinner. I once had chicken and it wasn't great, a... More
