Over the past few years I have had various business lunches at the restaurant. It is always quality food and when non menu items are requested they do a good job to accommodate. The view overlooking vineyards is a nice change from your typical restaurants on Queen Street in Old Town.

My husband and I had dinner at the Riverbend Inn restaurant, upon a recommendation from a local resident . We were impressed from the moment we pulled into the parking lot at the serene setting of the vineyard. The staff was very courteous and prompt in sitting us. Our servers Tanya and Johanna were very knowledgeable and pleasant. Now for... More

Four of us enjoyed a wonderful experience at the Riverbend! This was our second time visiting Niagara on the Lake and we chose to return to this restaurant for our one dinner in town. The wine list is, of course, interesting with many local options. The filet mignon was done perfectly as was the salmon accompanied by red quinoa. The... More

There is nothing but great things to say about this place. If you like older English style homes and dining, this is it. We bought the package to have a dinner coupon worth $50 credit and free breakfast. I don't think it was the best deal, but it didn't matter because the meal was top notch with risotto and scallops...

We dined here this past weekend for Fabulicious with some friends and were a bit disappointed. I ordered the Arugula & Spinach salad that was to have ice-wine butternut squash with it??? but when it arrived it looked like a wilted bunch of Arugula centered on a plate and the presentation was not nice, soggy looking with a few pecans...

I would like to thank you for taking the time to share your comments. I must say we were quite surprised, as the feedback from our guests has been outstanding for lunch and dinner. In regards to your squash inquiry, we were told by your server that you inquired about the beets as there was squash on your salad. She... More

Many times we drove by impressive looking winery/restaurant/inn, just at the start of the Niagara River and was curious what's like inside. Quite disappointed, a stuffy place, dark entrance, small dinning place but beautiful view to orchards. Lunch was special Feb/Mar. $25 and $35 for dinner. Appetizers were good. My chicken sandwich was good, french fries were disappointing, soggy and... More

We came here following a recommendation from a local couple. The food was excellent. The starters were extremely good, better than the mains and also about the same size... Definitely not an average restaurant. The atmosphere is not casual but also not stuffy. Very nice for celebrating a special occasion, or just for treating yourself to a not-cheap meal. Prices...

We were welcomed with big warm smiles. Our waitress was very professional and friendly. Impeccable service!! The view overlooking vineyards, with no obstructions, total serenity was amazing. This place is a real winner and one we will always go back to.

Fabulicious is a wonderful way to try more of the local Niagara on the Lake restaurants and get a special price for 3 course lunches ($25) and dinners ($35). Upon entering the inn, there was a reception desk, but the person there made no effort to communicate even though I waited about 10 minutes for the rest of my family... More
