Pick Up Orders

For call ahead orders, payment must be made over the phone.

If you call ahead for your order, remember that our location is Hutch’s On The Beach, not Harbourfront/Bayfront. Our phone numbers are close, so be careful.



Our policy, in accordance with Hamilton By-law requires everyone to wear a mask while waiting in line, as well as when entering the building.

If you are unable to comply due to health issues you will be required to wear a face shield.  If you cannot wear a mask or shield, please do not enter the line, please see the door attendant or security staff as we do have other ways to serve customers who cannot comply, that do not require you to wait in the line or come inside the restaurant.

You may order through our website at then choose Order Food from the drop down menu.

You may call your order in ahead and pay with your credit card over the phone.

If you do not wish to use an electronic payment option we can take your order outside and you may pay cash.  Your order will be placed in the spot that you would have held in line. To use this option please see staff or security at the door.

We do have our washroom facilities open as a courtesy but you will be required to have a mask or face shield and provide contact information to access them.

The safety of all our customers and staff is our priority and we are doing our very best to accommodate everyone as conveniently as possible. 

We appreciate your patience.  With everyone’s cooperation we will get through this and return to regular operations as soon as possible.



As everyone knows, after many years of wrapping our take-out food in newspaper we switched to boxes.  Newspapers were consistently getting smaller and many customers did not like that the food got squashed when wrapped in paper, however the paper absorbed the condensation effectively.


The boxes protect the food nicely but customers have reported that, because of the lining in the boxes the condensation remains inside, making the food soggy.


We believe we have found the perfect mix of the two in our new containers.  A strong box that protects the food but also a paper that absorbs the excess moisture.  Best of all, COMPOSTABLE!  Just throw them in your green bin when you’re done.


You can now find Hutch’s on the Beach on Uber Eats and Skip the Dishes!

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.
