    Food was delicious. We had eaten in the Lounge the previous night so decided to try the Restaurant because of the beautiful view of the lake. As mentioned, food was delicious. Service was abysmal. Whether it had to do with the start of the season or something else we waited and waited as did others at surrounding tables.

    Food is great. View is great. Highly recommended. Must be a little patient as they work out their staffing issues. They were clearly short on staff. When they adjust this, they'll be the best place to eat in Niagara. The kitchen has it 👍. Congratulations to chef and kitchen crew. Excellent food. Great value. It's a pleasure.

    My reservation was made long before and we didn’t get seated by the window as requested . The waiter didn’t serve the food, never asked if we wanted a second drink or how the meal was. Just took order then came for payment. Food was just ok. Disappointed with the meal for my mother’s 83 birthday. They were told about celebration and did nothing. Sad.

    We waited for 15 minutes after being seated before a server came to our table. We ordered fries to go with our sandwiches and our server forgot to put the order in. Kind of gross to have so many dead bugs on the ledge next to our table. Overall, still a good experience and we will be back, but have never had these issues before. The food is always excellent and well priced.

    Chose this restaurant for the view and proximity to our airbnb. The food was very good but it took about 15 minutes to get our drink orders taken then another ten for the appetizers and entrees. We were at a corner table and it felt like they forgot about us. Although our waiter was very nice. Great views of the water so overall a pleasant time.
