Locals know that a sure sign of spring is the opening of Willie’s Restaurant in Port Dover.
Willie’s has been a beach front staple for 30 years and it continues to grow in popularity. They offer both outdoor patio seating as well as an indoor air-conditioned seating area. For many people a stroll on the pier includes a stop at Willie’s for an ice-cream cone. Choose from a wide variety of soft serve, frozen yogurt and a local favourite – Hewitt’s Hard Ice Cream.
A few of our favourite items from the extensive menu is the original Willie Burger – a quarter-pound charbroiled beef burger topped with peameal bacon, cheese, Willie’s homemade BBQ sauce. As a kid, my go to was the chili willie fries with cheese or my all time favourite – onion chips. Ok, who am I kidding, they are still my go to!
Willie’s is also known for their BBQ chicken and ribs and of course, a Lake Erie favourite – Yellow Perch.
Willie’s will be opening for the 2021 Season on March 11. You can visit Willie’s to place your order, or order in advance by calling 519.583.3687.
