Coronavirus (COVID-19) Notice

Dear Valued Customers:

In light of the current global situation with COVID-19 and after much consideration, we have decided to suspend all dine-in service until further notice. We will remain open at this time for take-out and call ahead orders but may need to limit the amount of people in the restaurant at one time. We therefore, encourage you to call your order in ahead of time. Please call (905)545-5508 to place an order.

Our highest priority is the health and safety of our customers and staff. In an effort to keep everyone as safe as possible we will be sanitizing all door handles and high touch surfaces regularly.

In keeping with the request of the World Health Organization for social distancing we will encourage cashless payment as we do accept Visa, Mastercard, Amex and debit payments.

This information is for the Van Wagners Beach location only. Please check back regularly for any updates, as this is a rapidly changing situation.

Thank you,
Management and Staff
Hutch’s on the Beach


Welcome to Hutch’s on the Beach

Since 1946, the restaurant has built a reputation for its fabulous fish and chips, hamburgers and hotdogs “with the works”, milkshakes and its own delicious brand of French fries.

The atmosphere inside is made warm and friendly by the classic diner-style booths, old sports pictures on the walls and 1950s music on the jukebox.

Hutch’s classic combination of great food, fast service and 1950’s-style dining makes it one of the area’s most popular eateries.

Hutch’s is open all year: April 1st to Labour Day – 11 a.m. to 12 midnight.
Rest of the year: 11 a.m. – 10 p.m.
