We like Dock's Beach House in PC. I'm not sure it's the BEST perch in the area(very good tho) but it's nice sitting outside on the lake. I will say it's overpriced but my wife and I can easily split a perch dinner and have enough for us so that helps. I doubt we'd eat there if was in the basement of some building but the outside deck makes it really nice.

Skyway East in Mansfield has a great perch dinner.
THE best perch I ever had was at the famous Phil Smidt's Restaurant in Hammond Indiana. Like everyone that likes fish, I love battered pan fried perch. Even better is what Phil Smidt's called "boned and buttered" perch. Panned fried, but no batter. Fried in butter, then served smothered with clarified butter. The potatoes recommended to order with their "boned and buttered" perch was their small red skinned potatoes, served in a pool of melted butter.
New Sandusky Fish Company has been closed for awhile due to street construction etc but will open June 1st. Agree with sportsjock on tackle box but also like jolly rogers in pc. Lemmys? in Huron is cloased now too as of last weekend
Yep. Wife and I ate at Pioneer Mill Tiffin today. Nice deck over looking waterfall/river and it sure was nice eating at a restaurant again. They were well prepared with the masks,hand sanitizers,distancing etc going on.I think those restaurants with good outside seating will hit a grand slam this summer.
Not perch, but the very best walleye I've had was at a shore lunch in northern Canada.
Growing up, my family used to spend a week fishing for walleye up on the Ottawa River in Ontario. Rented the same A frame cabin right on the bank. You could walk 100 yards out and the water was knee deep and then would suddenly drop off over your head. We'd collect mussels from the river, and use the meat as bait. We'd canoe or swim over to an "island" in the middle that was loaded with blueberry bushes. As many would go in our mouths as the baskets.
Some of my best childhood memories are from our summers up there. Dad would buy big onions at the farmer's market nearby and use the same beer batter on both the fish and onions. I'm not a huge fish fan, but that meal was always very good - could have been the satisfaction of knowing I caught some of that fish myself; and mom would bake a fresh blueberry pie for dessert with a scoop of homemade vanilla ice-cream on top.
Every third year we'd forgo Canada and spend a month driving west to Spokane and back. On the way out, we always spent a few extra days in Yellowstone. Dad (and sometimes mom) would go fly-fishing in the Yellowstone River. The rainbow trout would practically jump onto their lines. We always ate well on the campstove those nights! Mom could do amazing things with a little salt, veggies, and foil - packets in the campfire to go along with whatever fish was on the menu.
