$50 for a family of 5 (1 kids meal). $7.95 for burger, fries and a small pop (soda). We came on a holiday at supper, so 1/2 hr in line + 1/2 hr after ordering to receive the food (we grabbed a picnic table outside). Food was hot and plentiful (kids couldn't finish their fries...so you know there had to... More

We walk, ride, or blade by Hutch's 4 or 5 times a week and you can always tell a good place by the line ups. Hutch's is that type of place, my wife and I had dates here now almost 20 years later we enjoy it with our kids. Concerned about your diet, there are a few healthier options but... More

A beautiful Saturday afternoon drive with the family and we decided to stop at Hutch's for lunch. We have been here before and love the food, the scenery as well as the "diner" look. Very homey feel. I ordered the large fish and chips (home cut fries and lots of them), my wife ordered the banquet burger and the kids... More

I always enjoy going to Hutch's for fish and chips. This restaurant is open all year round which is great! Can't wait to go back.

Have been going here since I was a kid so the experience is always a nostalgic one. 50s style interior, classic rock n roll music on the juke box and a panoramic view of the beach make this a place to go just for the atmosphere. You know those time where you crave some greasy fish & chips...Hutch's delivers. There... More

A friend & I went here for lunch. He's been dining here for years & still enjoys it. If you like fries, you'll love theirs. I also really enjoyed the beach-front location & the diner decor.

People watching, nature and good food...three of my favorite things...and all in abundance at Hutch's! Very "retro vintage" with a superb location...just a few feet from Lake Ontario in a park-like setting. Often head down there with a bike or two in the van, have a leisurely ride on the paved trails along the lake then a great feed of... More

And it's awesome! Portions are big, the fish we had was tasty and the gravy was delicious! It's low key, and maybe needs a lick of paint, but in my opinion this adds to the charm. This is a low key fish and chip joint right on the water. It won't cost you to earth (we spent $26 & were... More
