Definitely over-rated so I am not sure why people line up to buy their dogs. The hot dog is not grilled, more liked boiled or something, tastes like grocery-bought hot dogs, and the condiments are scattered all over the place. I won't go back again.

If you're in the area and its summer time, you gotta eat here! The footlong dog is amazing and I get one whenever I'm there. I can't comment on the rest of their menu because this is all I eat there, and I'm sure anyone would tell you the same. Come hungry because one foot of hot dog and delicious... More

You can't go to Port Dover without stopping for a Arbor footlong hotdog. They the best by far with all the tops you want. Mmmm

Family favorite. Hot dogs are amazing. Fries are good and glow is fantastic make sure you also try their ice cream. You won't get amazing service but the food is worth it

The Arbor is 95 years old and somethings never change ! Wiener Never tastes like it was cooked ... Bun is cool, condiments have trapped flys buzzing Around under the Lids... French fries are tasty and they were hot ...large were 4.75.. Quick stop , it trades on its name !

The place is an ICON and is NO TO BE MISSED for any reason , especially for those who enjoy the best dogs in... More

I can absolute appreciate this casual yet large scale fast food take out. Their food counter is the exact size of their store front ; your orders are conveniently served on a stainless steel counter across. The kitchen and actions could be all seen via each open windows. Friendly and efficient.

If your trip sends you to Port Dover, it's a must to have a foot long hot dog at Arbor. Fries, and Ice Cream available on premises as well. A close walk to the beach as well.
