I do love coming here when visiting Niagara on the Lake....it's so peaceful to sit outside and people watch while having a cocktail and lunch or dinner. This time, the food was not especially good, our waitstaff was not interested in refilling our drinks, and...More

Had the lamb shank . Did not look at all like the photo on the menu. Looked all shrivelled up and scrawny. Veges were overlooked. Worst meal I've had in a long time period.

We had dinner here twice because it was conveniently located between our hotel and the theatre we were going to. The service was fine and the food was perfectly acceptable, but not inspiring
