We are waiting for the bus to open! Cannot wait to sink our teeth into a delicious Perch taco and dip our perfectly made fries in the Birdie's sauce. The annual opening of Birdies means summer is approaching!!! Hmmmmm

This is an old bus converted to a take out restaurant that serves the best perch in Town. The fish tacos are to die for. They have a cute little patio if you want to eat there and have some ice cream for dessert.

The red bus (Birdies Perch) is the best in town The fries and coleslaw also are good. A bit pricey but Perch is expensive per pound.

The fish is always fresh, the location is great because it is outside and you can see the lake. I have tried everything on the menu and it is all good. I recommend the fish taco, the perch cone, the poutine, the goddess wrap, hotdogs, etc. It is a fun place to eat with great food!

Just a great place to have a bit to eat when you are out Leamington way or Point Pelee. Crazy good food coming out of a old English double-decker bus! The menu is fairly limited, but what is on there is outstanding. Very casual - you order at the window, grab your own drink from the coolers outside (great idea!)... More

There is nothing more to say about this restaurant other than the food is amazingly delicious. For an outdoor establishment, the atmosphere is really unique and inviting.
