The Barbeque Hut & The Deli Hut: More for the experience than for the food
The concept is interesting: order your BBQ items, then BBQ them yourself. Everything is provided: BBQ, lighter, condiments, cutlery, etc. Then sit back and enjoy your meal with some Pelee Island wine at one of the picnic tables. The food turned out to be pretty average, but it was a one-time fun experience.
Favorite Dish: We tried the buffalo sausage and burger. The burger was pretty bland. Spices would have helped. The sausage was tasty but really tough to pierce through. Side dishes of potato and bean salad were mediocre (they were out of coleslaw). Other options were steak, regular hot dogs and hamburgers, and baguettes with cheese toppings.
Anchor Inn and Restaurant: Very little choice
It has an island feel, lots of marine accents, very eclectic in decor. No table, chairs, cutlery, cups, dishes match one another.
You must remember that this is an island and therefore they have to pay a lot of cash to have the food brought over to the island, thus the very high prices for the meals. I would have thought that being close to fishing, that the fresh perch/pickeral would bring the price of a meal down. the soup/salad bar? that goes along with each meal was good, but very meager. 2 fresh soups were plentiful and tasty, but salad was just a bowl of mixed salad and some dressing, not much choice.Basket of rolls were just so hard they could have broken a tooth. They really should look into a better set up for this bar as there were flies in the room and on the salad. Some sort of net covering would have been nice. All in all, it was a good portion on the plates, lots of customers were taking their left over meals to go. with only a bar with pub food and another diner style restaurant, this was the only choice for a sit down dinner on the island, unless you brought your own food to cook at a rented cottage.
Favorite Dish: The fresh fish was lightly breaded and fresh and plentiful....coffee was delicious

Pelee Island Hotel & Pub: Typical Pub Food
This place appears to be the local hang-out. A relaxed atmosphere, sit-at bar, pool tables and tvs showing sports games. Nice outside patio to watch people come and go on the ferry.
Favorite Dish: We both had the lasagna. The portion size was big-good for the men-but it was a bit too salty and greasy. I suspect the wings and nachos are great though. I'd suggest coming here for snacks and drinks instead of for meals.
