Family had perch boats - Mushy - fryers must not be hot enough because very oily fish and perch isnt a oily fish. Overall not very pleased. Will save my fish craving for new fish place in Bowling Green.

Fish is always fresh and fried just right. Coleslaw is good too. Meals are served quickly. Great place with a long history of great food. Best place to get good fish on Lake Erie.

We were in the area and my husband really wanted so good fish. He had heard about this place from a co-worker that goes fishing in the area. I am not a fish eater and neither is my daughter and grandson. I got a chicken sandwich, my daughter had the pulled BBQ pork sandwich and my grandson had chicken strips.... More

You walk into what looks like an old fast food restaurant and otder at a counter. You get your own drink and sit at one of the few tables. Then the magic happens. These folks have frying perch down to a science. It was delicious, not overcooked, just wonderful fish. The shrimp on the same plate were large and tasty,... More

This is a family favorite!! We always stop when we are within an hours drive to Port Clinton, it is worth the drive! A local fella told us about this restaurant many years ago. It isn't at all fancy. It isn't pretentious by any stretch of the imagination. IT IS JUST AWESOME FOOD!!!

They have great perch and onion rings. I can't resist the onion rings so always am very full when I have them with some perch.

The breading they use is flavorful but not heavy, which is perfect to allow the flovor of the fish to blend with the breading. I have to drive 2.5hrs to go there and I do it a few times a year. If I'm driving the turnpike (US HWY 90/80), I will always take the 30 min drive out of the... More

Great place for lunch or dinner (Just do not go on a Friday, extremely packed). Love the fried perch and wale fish. You get a lot of food at a reasonable price.
