This seasonal casual outdoor location has some of the best perch dinners around. Service is quick, food is always fresh and tasty. It is a perfect lakeside place to stop at if you are out and about on a sunny summer afternoon. Have a cold beer or cooler on the patio, relax and linger to watch boaters out in Lake... More

We stopped at this waterside restaurant on Sunday, August 28th. We were on our motorcycle for the day and intended to have lunch and a couple of drinks there. We have been here previously and enjoyed the place. When we pulled our Goldwing (a very quiet bike) in front of the restaurant the owner came over and said that we... More

Dear Ed, In the spring of this year we had a parking area made and designated for motorcycles. Last summer a young driver almost got hit by a car pulling out on the grade in front of Hippos and many guests were startled when bikes started up. After some thought my husband decided to create a parking just for bikes.... More

Nice little place by the water, had fish and chips and chicken fingers and fries, food portions are a good size especially the fish. Nice to sit out by the water and enjoy the view with a nice cold beer and wine, best part was the Twist ice cream cone after dinner :-)

Thanks so much, glad you mentioned the chicken fingers. They are gluten free and let people know we have more than fish. More

We were renting a cottage nearby and we found this little restaurant. We got some ice cream and the menu looked pretty spectacular! The seating had a very nice view of Lake Erie. Great restaurant!

Hippo's is a great place to enjoy a fresh perch dinner on the lake. Beer or wine with dinner and great view from the covered patio. Have been back a number of times.

Cool breezes from the lake. Cool beers from the fridge and Lake Erie Perch on a bun. What could be greater? Been here a couple of times. 1st visit was magical. Fish was prepared expertly. 2nd visit must have been different staff. They were still smiling but food and beverages were below standard and temperature. Too bad - view is... More

Good selection on the menu. The place to try a good perch fry. Beer and vine available if so inclined. The only complaint is the price. $17.95 for a perch dinner is a bit high for a roadside eatery.

Love the english style fish & chips. Can be a long wait when it's busy on weekend nights. Lake Erie perch was just ok when I had it. Fries are home cut fresh and good. Great view and popular spot with open air water front casual atmosphere (bistro and picknic tables some with roof or umbrella overhead). Order at the... More
