There are as many pros to the ice cream at Hutch's as there cons. The St. Jacob's Apple Pie flavour is amazing! Others that I have tried often lack flavour, or full of fake, manufactured flavour (especially vanilla in some). The lines (especially in summer)...More

Meh.. fish and chips. Kind of turned off that they use beef drippings (animal lard).. gross. Already fatty.. but overly trans fatty makes me pass.. sign on the wall proudly states we use beef drippings.. really need to change that!

Good value fish 'n' chips and [in the good weather] excellent ice cream too. Get's busy lunchtimes and weekends. A short walk down to Bayfront Park to walk off your calories! Well worth a visit.

Took a friend here to treat him to a birthday burger, at which time he ordered a hot dog. Hutches on the Beach has been around forever and is a Hamilton institution. My friend went with a plain hotdog ($4.10) and a medium pop ($2.15)....More

I didn’t order anything except a coffee. My review is based on the environment. I’ll write another review when I eat here. Lots of seating, lots of parking, low music. My favorite part is the bulletin board. Note: cash only at the till. An ATM...More
