Last time we were here the kitchen was messed up so the meal took way too long to be served. We have always liked the restaurant so we wanted to give it another chance. Everything was excellent. The service, the wine and the food. I had a special, roast beef was amazing. My wife had the chicken parmigiana and it... More

Here for a Christmas season dinner for 10 -- including 2 toddlers. The classy waitress handled it all very well. The food was delicious, especially desserts. Service sizes were generous. Local wines and beers were available. Easy parking, of course. And the decor was stylish. Although it looks small on the outside, there was plenty of room inside, without having... More

We went to Scolfields for a birthday celebration for a friend. We were not disappointed by the food or service. However, we waited quite awhile for our meal after it was ordered. Once it arrived it was delicious. We did ask for bread while we waited and were told it would cost $2.00!!! What a surprise in a restaurant of... More

This is one of the few restaurants in Port Dover that has a different menu then the local fare of fish and chips. Service is excellent and the lunchs and dinners are good. Make a reservation if you are going for dinner.

My wife and I love this restaurant. Last week when we went the initial service was good. We ordered wine, which was brought quickly, but from there it went downhill. We ordered appetizers which took a while to get but we ordered our main course at the same time and it took 1 1/2 hours to come. Everyone in the... More

First of all, I want to state that the servers are excellent at this restaurant but they could do little about the fact that the kitchen failed to prepare our meals (my husband and I) in a timely fashion on two occasions. It is unfortunate because the first few times we visited Schofields, we had a great time and were... More

Everything was just ok. The food wasn't interesting, the menu was very generic, but the price was too high for the quality offered. Overall, it was just not as good as I'd hoped for and everything had undertones of balsamic vinegar.

Had a $50 gift certificate so we went for dinner with friends. Didn't even come close for covering our bill for 2 people. We did not have drinks. $11 for a Caesar salad. Ridiculous! No butter for the baked potato, just sour cream. I had the smothered chicken. It was good but small portion. Husband had the pickerel, only one... More
