Made sure our spot was wheelchair accessible and close to washroom or our mother who suffers from MD. Also a nice spot under canopy out pf the rain. We had such a beautiful time. We definitly be back.

Food was okay and the service was excellent, the skating rink/ pool was cool and the walter gretzky hockey stick bench was awsome. Too bad the beer garden was closed but it is mid October so understanding.

Disappointing in comparison to previous experiences here. Service was poor and food was tasteless. Nevertheless, it's a beautiful spot with a good vibe.

They said that they Didn’t have any take out containers so we had to waste all the leftovers. Was surprised that they had no alternative suggestions on how we could take the food away.

Absolutely beautiful venue that felt understaffed. We had lunch on Thanksgiving Monday. It was very busy. The menu was very limited and there was quite a wait for our food. The food was OK however I think a $23 Burger ($26 since I substituted Fries for a salad) should be great if not extraordinary.

A lot went right on our visit, I think next time we go it will be a weekday.

Beautiful spot and great ambience. Some staff were great and others were not interested in being there. The place has the opportunity to be exclusive but poor staff experience took away from the experience

As a local Gretzky’s is always one of my favorites. Love the beer garden and the whiskey bar and the general good vibes the place has. I wish the whiskey bar menu had some more options, I always end up getting the burger which is just average

Everything was great , our server Kayley went above and beyond. We had a food reservation at the Whiskey Bar Patio and she managed to squeeze us in some Whiskey tasting along with a couple of wines. Food was great.

Very disappointing. No focus on the wines, the food is poor. This place is a sports bar, a poor sport bar. They are surfing on the name…

The whole experience was very positive. From the moment you step to the entrance someone greets you and guides you to where you need to go. The restaurant, our waitress Megan and the shopping was wonderful. Great pictures of Mr 99 on site. I liked the experience. Wine and beer both great!

Yesterday, I met up with long time friend for lunch. I’m a NIAGARA resident, but she lives out of town. We finally got together to celebrate our belated 40th birthdays. While I was waiting for my friend to arrive, I told our server, (Riley) that we were both celebrating our milestone birthdays. All of sudden, I see her appear with two fruity fancy beverages. I thought they were for the nice couple sitting behind me because I hadn’t ordered yet and I was taking in the scenery as it was my first time there. Needless to say, I was completely happily surprised! Steve the bartender made us something beautiful, colourful and delicious. (I forget the name - sry). My gf was happy to see a drink waiting for her. She thought I took the liberty to order her one. (I was honest). Our lunch was absolutely delicious and portions are large. I had the chicken sandwich and my gf had a salad w chicken.
We walked around the grounds. I purchased a book for my children and a couple of Adult drinking boxes for my husband and I go enjoy later. My gf purchased the Salted Carmel Cream. We were able to catch up, eat a delicious lunch, laugh out loud and truly celebrate! Cheers to 40! We didn’t want to leave. I’m looking forward to bringing my family for a skate this winter and hopefully a date night or two with my hubby! Thank you for a fun-filled afternoon! Extremely grateful!

Atmosphere was terrible. Had a reservation. Ended up at a table past all the others—in the dark and in a forgotten part of the deck. Was able to move to another table that was right in front of the kitchen.

The food was horrible. The music was ok but the DJ needs to learn how to control the bass levels. The environment is nice, but wasted as the food is inedible.

Myself and 3 girlfriends enjoyed a delicious lunch here on a gorgeous ‘summery’ October Saturday. The food & drinks were delicious, the grounds gorgeous and our server, Seth was fantastic! If you’re in the area,do yourself a favor and stop in!

Lovely atmosphere, good service, decent food. I would go back for the location and fantastic drinks, but would choose food elsewhere. Just not as flavourful as we had hoped, and the quality wasn’t the best; for example, frozen fries.

Great hostess, nice atmosphere,
Good service. Food was good but Little pricey for a lunch date.

Also I am Gretzky club member and there was no benefit to our visit . No food discount, couldn’t get a tasting and no discount on the alcohol in the store. Did not feel special at all.
But overall the place is lovely to visit.

Server “David” was nice, food was okay (burger was a burger - nothing special and onion rings we okay). Nice table by the water feature in the sun. Limited choices on the menu and no apps. With all the nice sauces in the gift shop I would suggest coming up with menu items that show case them instead of using ketchup packets.

Great spot, lots of fun for a large group or just dinner for two. Come for the whisky or wine...but plan on eating before or after as we were both a bit disappointed with our meals.

The burgers were a little lame. They were expected to be a lot better and the salads were just okay.
The venue was nice, but there were a lot of people and it was all a bit too commercial for our taste.
Nice discovery was the maple whiskey. Bravo!!

The service was a little on the slow side and the burgers were dry but the poutine was amazing and so was dessert!
