Good food in a nice setting

This was my second time here and it was very enjoyable, The Greek food is very good and the ribs were fantastic. This is a place worth checking out when in town.

The perch was lightly herbed and breaded and not over-cooked - kudos to the chef - well done! The garlicky mashed potatoes were a perfect match with the perch. Next time we'll try the fish'n chips.

This is my favorite place in Fort Erie to dine. Great Greek options, steaks and the always enticing daily specials (awesome ribs). The service is good and the "patio" (faux) is a comfortable place to dine.

where do I begin? We'd been there once and walked out after 30 minutes of being served bread and water and otherwise being ignored. Months later we decided to give it another shot but it was not a great experience at all. The waitress screwed up orders, was basically slow. My mom ordered a half order of fish and chips,... More

I ordered the coconut shrimp, and their Lake Erie perch, and chocolate fudge cake! The coconut shrimp is the best I have ever had. Lake Erie perch is one of their specialities, and was thick crisp, and delicious. The interior is beautifully decorated. The staff was very friendly.

We had 7 kids and 8 adults. We sat in a large room in the back. Small drink menu. Only a few wines by the glass and draft beers. Large menu. Steaks seafood and pasta. I had Lake Erie perch dinner. Included 5 pieces of fish and great slaw. Good kids menu. Drink and scoop of ice cream included.

First time visit to Old Bank Bistro in Fort Erie to have lunch with my wife and son. My first awareness of this bistro was based on 10 min of a Cogeco cable show investigating a ghost (Richard Baxter) alleged to be there from a number of years ago. It was raining heavily. As we entered the bar portion was... More

We stopped by the Old Bank Bistro for a drink after the owner of the Lakeshore Bed & Breakfast made a recommendation. After looking at their menu and having a great time during our brief stop, we decided to come back for dinner. The manager and bar staff were very accommodating and the patrons were very friendly. I won't say... More
