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.

The food was wonderful at Birdies Perch - we had the yellow Perch as fish and chips and in tacos. Great evening - would highly recommend if you are in Leamington.

Fantastic Perch (they seemed very large compared to other spots in the area) fresh cut fries, and coleslaw which I could have gone without (not my style of coleslaw, vinegar based.) The few short comings of this place are the price (yes I understand it's based on demand/price of fish, but other places seem to keep it at a consistent... More

After taking in the butterfly and raptor migration at Point Pelee, lunch at Birdie's Perch was just what we needed. The perch tacos and hand-cut fries were tasty and fresh, and the staff was accommodating and friendly. It would be worth the drive to Birdie's even if you weren't visiting Point Pelee!

Had heard about this place...was curious to visit. Fantastic food and nicely decorated bustaurant. Stuffs are very good and food quality is heavenly. A must visit.
