Peninsula Ridge Estates is truly a world class wine and culinary destination catering to guests who are looking to pair a relaxed and casual atmosphere with an incredible dining experience. The property is stunning, with breathtaking views of the Niagara Escarpment, Lake Ontario including the Toronto Skyline and of course our pristine vineyards. The restaurant is set in our historic "Queen Anne Revival" Victorian mansion perched on the brow of the Beamsville Bench and features a great outdoor patio for dining during our long summer days and nights.



Our culinary team takes great pride in offering the ultimate dining experience using fresh locally grown produce (often grown right down the street) served by skilled, professional and friendly staff. Our reputation for epicurean excellence is often one of the main reasons why people choose The Restaurant at Peninsula Ridge.

Excellent food and service, as always. We’ve dined at Peninsula a Ridge many times and have always had an excellent lunch, brunch or dinner. The patio is lovely on a warm day, overlooking the beautiful property. Staff welcoming and attentive.

Wine selection was limited and very overpriced for a 5 oz glass. The meal was good, but also overpriced when you consider the quality.

The service here is excellent. I appreciate that the restaurant phones beforehand to check on allergies, etc. Our waitress was efficient and warm and friendly and knowledgeable about wine pairings. The food and wine was excellent. Great value for charcuterie board. My second visit in two weeks.

I had the Lake Huron Pickerel and the portion size was a single strip about 5 inches long by one inch wide. At $34 this is not good value. I can go to my local restaurant (Jakes Oyster Bar and Grill) on a Wednesday night and five pieces of pickerel for $18.99.

I have to admit my wife had the same meal and her portion was bigger but still not what I would expect.

Beautiful setting, restaurant, food. Menu items prepared very well, all delicious. Excellent service by Tracy. On this evening we ate on the patio, which was a comfortable and pleasant dining experience. We asked for help in ordering and being served efficiently in order to get to a theater performance, and the staff accommodated this request graciously.

Great place for lunch. Unique and exquisitely made lunch options. The Dry aged beef burger and Duck Confit were amazing. The Grilled Romain lettuce salad was very unique and Uber tasty.
They made my burger Keto (no bun). Which was a request they had no trouble fulfilling.
Great service; prompt and attentive; very friendly.
We were a party of 2, made reservations the day before

We had a wonderful meal at the restaurant this past week. Staff member, Tracy, was extremely attentive and knowledgeable about the meals offered on the Lunch menu. Meals were terrific..well prepared and beautifully served. I had the paella which was well seasoned and chock full of seafood. My mother, uncle, and sister were all very satisfied with their meals...the steelhead trout, the burger and the chimichurri chicken. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for any occasion. It was also nice to wander over to the on site wine store for tasting and learning about how the wine is produced.

After 10+ years we visited for lunch again. Even better than we remembered. We sat outside on the breezy patio and enjoyed the vista... lake, vineyards, fruit trees and hills. And the food was as wonderful as the view. We shared the very tasty perch fishcakes appetizer. I had the Panko Crusted Gomes Tomato Sandwich on focaccia and my date had the Chicken Chimichurri Sandwich on sourdow bread. Both were exceptional and large. We enjoyed the Peninsula Ridge Reisling and the Pino Noir and next time we visit we will be buying some bottles to drink at the B&B.

Delicious Food and Great Value in a Beautiful Setting
This restaurant should be on your list if you are visiting wine country in Niagara.
We visited on a Sunday and had their Brunch menu. This restaurant has one of the best Brunch menus in the area. We were a party of 4 and loved every dish we had. The cuisine is creative and delicious and is served by professional and attentive staff. Two of us ordered the Grilled Baby Romaine Caesar with Pingue prosciutto, fried capers, pecorino cheese shavings and anchovy lemon dressing to which we added the grilled prawns so this became our main. Both of us loved this dish as a main because the ingredients were fresh and creatively presented. Another person ordered the Cedar Plank Lake Lois Steelhead Trout marinated in stone ground mustard and maple syrup served with fingerling potato lyonnaise and vegetables and said it was fabulous. Again this dish was beautifully presented. The other person in our party ordered the Grilled Dry Aged Ontario Beef Burger with fingerling potatoes and it too was delicious. They have an excellent wine menu that compliments the food. All of the desserts were creatively presented and “yummy”. For desserts two of us had the Profiterole au Chocolat filled with house made vanilla ice cream served with a raspberry compote and hot dark chocolate sauce. This dish was absolutely delectable; the best profiteroles I have had. Another person had the Lemon Curd Pavlova with rhubarb coulis and mint oil and loved this dish as well. The other person in our party had the Lemon Sorbet served with a chocolate macaroon and enjoyed it. The desserts were a great finish to our meal. Our server, Michelle, made dining at The Restaurant at Peninsula Ridge a fun experience. We appreciated Michelle’s friendly and attentive service. Whether you are having lunch or dinner you will enjoy the fabulous food and terrific service at this restaurant.
