The Oven patio restaurant is our seasonal outdoor restaurant. We have wood-fired pizzas, burgers and mac n cheese. Live entertainment is Tues and Wed evenings 6-9 and Sunday 12-3. We open the end of May and run until the end of October. We have weddings every weekend, so our patio is not open for dinner on those days. Some Fridays we don't have weddings we will be open for dinner or have events. Please call the restaurant for larger parties and events at 905-562-4339 (ext 2). You can call for reservations or go through our website and book online on Open Table. During our high traffic season, we request you follow our turn times: 1-2 guests is an hour and a half, 3-6 guests is 2 hours, 7 and more is 3 hours. We want everyone to have a wonderful dining experience and we look forward to serving all Summer on the patio.

Amazing restaurant with high quality food and wine. My only issue was it took longer than expected to get our entré’s but in the end it was worth the wait! Great service!

I've given 4 stars to food just because there is no separate category for vine. The food was great (one of the best burgers I have ever had, too bad we did not realize the full menu was not available on Sunday - I was looking forward to try the mussels...) Vine is a separate story, personally, I would expect much more for a bottle of vine at $55 price range. The vine was so so (Merlot 2016), I expected more from the vineyard.

Such a great experience! Not many restaurants do you get to sit on a couch to eat your meal. So cozy and friendly service. We did wait an hour for our food which was okay because the live music was amazing but we were with 3 kids under 5 and they were getting pretty impatient. Next time I’d go back without kids ...sit back and enjoy. The kids loved visiting all the animals afterwards. The food was incredible !

Service very slow. Food ok but overpriced!
Staff was flustered when large group arrived

Grounds were messy, boxes piled up, tools left out.
Inside door (at horrible looking entrance) was confusing with handle on inside. A few people thought it was locked but you pushed instead of pull.
Waitress lacked common sense and unprofessional appearance.
Won’t go back

We dined there twice for lunch while we were in Niagara in May, first as a couple, then as a group of 7. On the first visit on a weekday the food and the service were OK. Menu was interesting, wine list was poor.
On the next Saturday, they lost the reservation we made by phone a few months before. They offered to set up a table in the adjoining barn. We were then ignored for 30 minutes, and service as so poor during the meal we didn't care anymore if the food was good or not. We will not go back.

Wonderful venue and the food was wonderful! I can see it being a beautiful spot for a wedding.
Maybe, the gift shop area could be a bit larger with some unique items.

Great atmosphere, very welcoming staff and place. We were attended to from beginning to end. Staff were very good with seniors, food sensitivities, attending to special needs and gave constant help, making sure people had what they needed. Our server was extremely patient and we felt very cared for. The entire meal went above and beyond and we all enjoyed what we had. No disappointments whatsoever. Will definitely recommend to friends and family and will return for family functions. GOOD JOB

First let me start with the food was amazing, but the service was terrible, our server took 15mins to come to table to order drinks, we ordered apps and our meals, our meals came out 5 mins after recieving our apps. Why !? And she didnt care she started moving things around to place them down by the time we got to them they were cold. She made us feel rushed will never return or reccommend sorry.

I have enjoyed dining here many times for brunch, lunch and at the patio. We enjoyed the fresh bread presented in a cast iron pan, polenta fries, and shared the jerk chicken sandwich. Our meal was spread out and as we waited for the sandwich, we sat by the fireplace on the comfy couch with a glass of wine, enjoying the ambience. Perfection! Our server was friendly and attentive. We left feeling relaxed and satisfied with the dining experience. Our only regret, no room for dessert!

I love holiday weekends. I used to be a very traditional family girl. However now I take advantage of doing something a little less traditional. The time I get to spend with my husband and my boys is slim so I like to make the day count if I can. Tonight’s dinner is brought to you by Honsberger Estates. .

You won’t be disappointed! The atmosphere, the service, the food oh my 🤗 Tonight’s menu ... Mussels in a Vietnamese sauce, Calamari Grape Salad and traditional Fish and Chips (because it is Good Friday). Paired with a bottle of Fireside Red from a neighbour Fielding Estates @honsbergerestatewinery @fieldingwinery #lovewherelive #fieldingwinery #fieldingestatewinery #fishandchips #mustgo #instagood #food #wine

It was a great experience for the first time. We were greeted at the front entrance with a smiling face and seated right away.
The server was very knowledgeable of the food and drinks that were available. The only unfortunate part was that the red wine choices were limited.
The lunch was fantastic the food great and the server was very attentive to our party.
Overall very everyone was pleased with their choices and enjoyed the rest of our time at honsberger’s.
Well done.
We will return.

This was my second time. I came in January with a group of 20 plus women for a friends birthday. The food was incredible! I couldn't wait to come back.
So, for my birthday I had my husband take me. Unpon arriving I was told there were a lot of items not available due to a new menu launch. However the chef called in sick so they were sticking to what was left.
Not sure who the replacement was, but they were not ready for this new resposiblity as the food was terrible. To start I had a pear and blue cheese salad that was underdressed and with very little topping besides the pear. Next I had seared tuna on a bed of spicy greens. The tuna was so over cooked, I needed a steak knife to cut it and it was missing a red sauce.
Next the service. When we arrived there were exactly 10 other people dining (two tables of four and one of two) in the small barn. It took us 2 hours and 40 minutes to have a stater, a main, and coffee with dessert. I had to flag down our server numerous times for items such as salt and pepper, water, a knapkin, a beer for my husband, the dessert list, the bill...etc. Our waitress was so preoccupied talking with staff that I eventually started flagging down a lady that I assume was the dining manager. I'd be surprised if she didn't noticed how neglected our table was.

This was our second visit to Honsberger for dinner and we thoroughly enjoyed both experiences. This time there was live entertainment on the Saturday night which was perfect. We will definitely go back and bring our friends. Great food, cozy atmosphere, good wine and good prices. The service was fabulous as well!
