    I love this restaurant. The historical relevance of the golf course, the fort across the river regarding many issues including indigenous issues, the service, and the food are all things that keep me coming back.

    Nice view, server overwhelmed and forgot our drinks, and was too busy to really serve us. Food was average and pricey.

    The food was very good. I don’t recall being told that my selected dinner had nuts on it and that would have been helpful as it is problematic for me to eat nuts. The restaurant was generally very quiet but one waiter spoke very loudly all the time and disturbed me with the loudness. Despite these, the service was good and my dinner was good once I took all nuts off the meal

    Snagged a table for 6 on the patio on a Saturday afternoon which felt like a win in itself! Group enjoyed the classic burger, basket of fries (SO good!) and pizzas. Our two toddlers had the pizza & the cheeseburger off the kids menu and both servings were very large! Meals we’re great and the view was fantastic. Service was on the slower side, but that’s not entirely a bad thing when you’re enjoying the patio view. The prices were to be expected for NOTL - not outrageous, but definitely pricier than a comparable restaurant in St. Catharines or Niagara Falls. Overall satisfied with our experience 😊

    Everyone at our table of 5 was very pleased with the food. The Lobster & Shrimp roll was a big hit as was the asparagus soup. Attentive staff and a wonderful view from the patio.

    Gorgeous, outside view on the water with wait staff that make you feel like you are at a resort. Food was wonderful for kids and adults alike—some unique items like a portobello burger and old standbys as well.

    Background 'music' may appeal to the wait staff but we found it loud and irritating and would prefer a more relaxed sound...even softer jazz. Great location but I hesitate to recommend because of the irritating 'music'

    I had the Budda Bowl salad it was amazing and very large. I added a single peice of Chicken which I found to be over priced ($10) for the size most restaurants are $7-8. As I live in the NOTL area I can compare . Service was great . View spectacular.
