The Oven restaurant is our seasonal outdoor patio, utilizing a wood-fired pizza oven. We are completely outdoors, with no indoor seating. If it rains, we now have a beautiful awning that will protect from the rain, with some exception to moving inside. On wedding days, we cannot move inside, so it is come rain or come shine.

Great place. Food, drinks, musician and ambience are all above average. Service was slow but we weren’t in a rush and planned on staying for the evening to listen to music so it didn’t ruin our experience.
Will be back and recommend for anyone.

Wednesdays are the busiest night at Honsberger and on the night we dined there, July 11, the service was terribly slow. We were later told that Wednesday is the busiest and slowest night. The singer is popular and many patrons seemed to be enjoying the beautiful summer evening and dining leisurely. But for us, at a casual restaurant, the wait was much too long. We were seated at 7:45 p.m. Our dinners arrived cold at 9 p.m. We were seated at the bar and watched numerous dinners being prepared. After a half hour we began to thing the next one would be ours, but we waited and waited. A couple who came in after us by 15 minutes finished their dinner and left and still we waited. Finally the food came at 9 p.m., but my fish tacos were cold and unappetizing. My husband's burrito was lukewarm. To her credit, the server removed the food charge for my item which was the coldest. (My husband ate his.) We have visited Honsberger three times in recent weeks, and so this bad experience was a surprise. The pizzas looked better on this visit, though we did not order one. Previously, we were disappointed with the pizzas. The ingredients were skimpy and one was burned. On a warm summer night, this is a lovely spot, but we won't be back for awhile.

A friend and I drove by Honsberger Estate about a month ago and thought we should try it one day. So on June 30th I went online to book a reservation for July 1st and we were welcomed right from the start. It was nice to sit on the patio and enjoy the sights. The grounds are beautiful and we could see the horses from where we sat. The waitress recommended a cool summer drink that was delicious and refreshing. We ordered the pizza special of the day and the salad. It was just what we expected. Every person working that day was awesome. Alot of people came to the restaurant but we never felt rushed to leave. The whole experience was over the top. Have already recommended Honsberger Estates to many friends and family.
I know that I will returning again for another fantastic outing.

Cheers

Our favorite place for outdoor dining! We love watching the horses in the paddock, parking under the trees, and enjoying the unobtrusive entertainment. Service tends to be a little on the slow side, which is nice, so don’t expect everything to come rushing at you at once - it’s not that kind of place. It’s not like a roadhouse on an US Interstate, is what I’m saying.

What it is, is absolutely charming and bucolic!

You’ll love it!

Wood fired pizza was great, drinks were great, but service was slow. Could have been because it was one of the hottest days of the year and they only have outdoor dining. I think I would have been working slower in those conditions as well. Would give it another try! Ambience is great!

Casual dining in a beautiful setting and relaxed atmosphere. Limited wine and food menu, but it does not matter. On a warm summer night there is nowhere better. Music by the Caribbean Club Trio was delightful. All and all, we had a wonderful evening at Honsberger.

I was so impressed with the ambience of the place and the delicious food, but it was actually Keisha’s wonderful service that put it over the top. She was lovely and attentive and arranged for a piece of cheesecake to be brought out for my mom who was celebrating her 78th birthday. We fully enjoyed our time there and will continue to spread the word about this wonderful restaurant!

We have been to Honsberger before and enjoy the wood fired pizza, patio and Country casual atmosphere. We went to celebrate Fathers day and as usual the service was friendly and efficient.
The pizza was good, but I was somewhat taken aback at the cost of drinks this year. A bottle of wine is now $40, glass is $10 and the beer was 10 as well. This is the quite an increase (last yr. Btl. Of wine Was 20 something). Based on this, the value equation isn't the same as before and now would compete with many other finer restaurants in the Niagara area.

First time being there and the place was fantastic. great environment, great atmosphere and exactly what you call a hidden gem. The server was very nice but as we got there, it seemed like we were in the way or they wanted to go home and we were asking to much. Tall blonde lady was not every friendly at all. She seemed annoyed. We spent $600 there. Overall great place but this lady almost ruined the experience. I would love to come back but would be hesitant because of her. Lots of competition out there. Great place though and food was fantastic.

Absolutely lovely place. The servers are friendly and the food is something else. The chef truly takes pride in her work. We had a gluten-free wood fired oven pizza and it was the best gluten-free crust we have ever had. The chef's own homemade recipe were told. Ambience is great, the outdoor patio is really charming and beautiful to sit out and have a drink on. Highly recommend, will definitely be visiting again!

My wife and I had a wonderful time at your restaurant from the moment we arrived to the end of our visit. We had fun with the bartenders and servers at the bar before we sat down for dinner. The table was perfect as was our server {Kathy}, she explained everything perfectly. Our dinners were excellent, cooked to perfection and delicious. We will return when you open next, but will enjoy the outdoor dining in the spring and summer. Once again thank you, CHEERS!

It’s an awesome venue and great food and drinks — just very slow. Plan to spend the whole night and enjoy the ambiance. It’s not someplace you can just drop in and get a pre show drink or app bc they’re not equipped for crowds. But it’s worth a visit. We love it.

Our group loved the ambiance at The Small Barn at Honsberger Estate - rustic, authentic and utterly charming. The food was excellent as well. Our table shared the frites, halloumi and the warm goat cheese as appetizers; all dishes were very good, with the frites and halloumi particularly liked. For mains, our group loved the gnocchi, the short ribs and the scallops special. Portion sizes and value for money were great on all dishes. Likewise, the wine list featured a good selection of reasonably priced Niagara bottles. A great experience and would easily recommend or return to try the outdoor bistro if we're in the area during the summer months.
