Restaurant at Niagara-on-the-Lake Golf Club

  4 Reviews

Yup. Service is slow on the veranda. But when the weather is beautiful the last thing you want is them whipping you in and out in 20-30 minutes. This is a place you really want to linger. The food is very good (definitely not mediocre) and prices are reasonable (don't know why someone thought it was overpriced). The menu is pretty simple which means that each dish is fresh and well prepared. And while the service can be slow they are very accommodating, polite, cheerful (no sour faces among this crew). I've brought my dog several times and they've provided her with a nice, large bowl of water to sip as she lay at my feet. I hesitated to give them a good review since I don't want to have to wait for a table as more people discover this place. I just love it!!!!

Indifferent service and ordinary, overpriced food.  The view is nice.

We sat on the patio, for the view.  What we didn't realize that having a view meant poor service, and mediocre food.  I had the pork sandwich which was okay, my wife had the shrimp wrap, where the shrimp was bland.  We always had to ask another waiter to find our server, and the place wasn't that busy.

Go there for the view, not the food or service.

+ scenic view, + good clubhouse fare and local brews, - can get noisy

Our innkeepers (Hoppy's B&B) recommended the clubhouse to us since we were looking for a scenic view for dinner, which is by the way rare in the area!
From the patio you can see Toronto on a clear day, Fort Niagara on the US lake side and the many sailing boats that cruise Lake Ontario.

Besides the beautiful scenery the golf club offers a really delicious menu, which you can enjoy inside the clubhouse or on the patio. It contains a tasteful fare of sandwiches, salads, and a few larger entrees like fish and chips or rib-eye steak. My favorites for sure are the chicken, brie and cranberry wrap and the pulled pork sandwich.
Next to local microbrews the restaurant serves wine from the surrounding vineyards such as Reif and Between the lines. Overall a nice casual hang-out beside the more touristy and higher priced Queen Street.

+ scenic view,
+ good clubhouse fare and local brews,
- can get noisy on the patio since some people are unable to get up without pushing the metal chairs over the floor forever

Average price for an entrée: CAN $15-20.
