Welcome to The Perch Pit!

The only Gourmet Fish and Chip Truck nestled in the heart of historic Amherstburg. Located at The Waterfront Ice Cream Parlour, a local landmark established in 1979, that offes over 60 flavours of ice cream. Come and experience the nostalgia of old Amherstburg and relax on the best patio in town.


Enjoy our classic river town comfort food menu, featuring the best fried perch in Essex County, created by award winning Chef Bill Deslippe, owner of Smashed Apple Catering and Food truck. We also specialize in our own cool refreshing Fresh Mint Lemonade. Fish not your thing? Try our old school fresh cut fries, deep fried avocado and boneless wings with house made sauces.


Out of small town charm, comes big bold flavours from Smashed Apple Trade Co's signature spice line featured in our recipes. The perfect place to experience a great meal on the patio with the family, then grab a cone of your favourite feel good ice cream and go for a stroll in the scenic Navy Yard Park.
