We stoped for a late lunch and almost walked out. We entered the restaurant walked into the bar and were ignored. Several servers could see us standing in the bar area discussed it between them selfs but no one came over. We then walked into the restaurant area caught the attention of a younger server and asked if the bar... More

As per the waitress, the perch is a milder fish and less bones than the pickerel and their fish are battered and fried but you can asked the pickerel to be panfried for $1 extra. The batter is already on the fish and they cannot be amend the thickness of the batter but you can ask them to drain it... More

Totally underwhelmed by the meal I had at this restaurant. The fries were clearly of the frozen variety and the fish (perch) consisted of 5 tiny pieces surrounded by an overcooked rubbery batter. The salad bar was OK considering how few selections were actually available. Service was on par with the meal. As someone who makes my own fish and... More

While in Port Dover we had dinner at the Fisherman's Catch, on the recommendation of the B and B owner. The place was pretty "plain-jane" but was clean and looked to be be well kept. Service was good. I ordered the local pickerel dinner. My wife had a salad and sweet potato fries. I elected to have veggies instead of... More

I own and manage a B&B in the region, Dover House Bed and Breakfast, and when my guests as me I tell them Fisherman's Catch is my favorite restaurant because it is. It's the best food and the best service with the best price. I've never had a meal that was wanting and even when it's busy the ladies who... More

We dined here twice ;once in spring and once in July 2016.We always had the fish and chips.Nothing to rave about.Staff could be a bit friendlier and perhaps a smile once in a while would do.We found it understaffed since we had to wait for quite a while for our orders to be taken.

We came in at 1 pm on a Thursday. We were a party of 4. The server was friendly at first but that was the only positive. We waited an hour and a half for our food. Other people who arrived at the restaurant after us were served before us and were leaving before we had even received our food.... More

Food is decent. Escargot are fantastic. Decor needs updating, really really dated but I guess that could be part of the charm if you want to look at a positive attitude. Service.. service kinda sucks, waitresses almost seem disinterested once they serve your order to see how it is or if you need anything else. You shouldn't always need to... More
