Chef Karrie Galvin is obviously a passionate and talented chef. She has created a brand new and exciting menu for the Oban Restaurant's offering for the Fabulicious Dining event currently on at several restaurants in Niagara-on the-Lake. Karrie's menu IS NOT a scaled down promotional version of the regular menu - instead she has created exciting, innovative dishes just bursting... More

There are so many five star restaurants in Niagara on the Lake All of them are expensive. The Oban Inn the way it used to be years ago was wonderful. Now, this new restaurant is expensive and not worth the price.

Dinner with friends on a cold snowy night at the Oban Inn was as expected. Great ambience , fire burning , decorated for the season. Food was ok ... tenderloin ordered medium rare was medium at best , Caesar salad for $12 was not even close in size or flavours to match price. Duck was good but a little crispy.... More

My mother and I stopped by for a cocktail recently. We were given a seat in front of the fire. The staff were very friendly and the drinks good. Some nuts or olives would have been a nice addition, but all in all we had a very good experience.

Pleasant setting and varied menu. The hamburger is second-to-none, as is the Caesar salad. Exceptional service, and very good food. Always a pleasant experience.

I went to lunch with friends this week. Granted it was during fabulisious (Nov. 10th to 17th) so the three course meal was $25. so was well worth it. I did check out there regular lunch menu also would be well worth it. Ambiance, service and food excellent. I chose their salad, salmon and bread pudding. All of us enjoyed... More

We have come to Niagara-on-the-lake for decades and dined and stayed at most of the hotels in this beautiful town. This was the first time staying at the Oban Inn. I remember years ago the lounge operated on the honour system; you ate and drank in the beautifully appointed lounge and simply went to the up to the bar afterwards... More

We had a reservation for 7:45 on a Saturday evening and showed up on time only to be told there was a bit of a wait for our table. Not a problem - we took a seat at the bar with other couples waiting for their table (not a good sign) to have a drink and 45 minutes later were... More

amazing package for the fall included spa and restaurant discount coupons, wine tasting and more! we had a delightful Premium Queen room with a sitting area in a glass enclosed "porch/verandah". Truly a pleasant experience - and the food at their restaurant was also amazing. What a trip!

Chef Karrie is doing a great job. The mussels were the best I've ever had. The broth was complex and delicious. Dessert portions were generous and equally tasty! I had the panna cotta. Great for sharing.
