Servers are friendly and the perch dinners tasty. It is so close to the national park that you can go down for lunch and be back at the beach in no time.

Everything is pretty bland and the presentation is not much either as shown on their signature photo. Good service though and close to Point Pelee.

when are they going to shut it down with all the bad reports having been reported. Maybe when the Caldwell band takes over they can re open with a stare of the art fish restaurant.. The present owners are amateur restaurant owners and should be relegated to a fish and chip truck for their endevours. NUUUUUUFFFFF said!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don M
