This was my FIRST VISIT to the Riverbend Inn and it did not disappoint my friend and I. We made lunch reservations, and discovered that was a wise decision since the dining room was surprisingly small and it filled up quickly with a number of groups. The dining room is BEAUTIFUL featuring a WALL OF WINDOWS that overlook the property.... More

We had a chance to stop out at Riverbend for lunch this summer and weren't disappointed. It was a sunny June day and the back patio, overlooking the gazebo and landscapes was fabulous. The service was impeccable and the food delicious. We liked our servers wine suggestion and the fact that no one was rushing us through our lunch. Great... More

Excellent food!!!! We both enjoyed our dinner, daily specials were awesome. The chicken with prosciutto and fresh veggies was tender and seasoned perfectly. The veal parm was wonderful and could be cut with a fork! Staff at the hotel are very attentive and well versed in the winery business, all questions answered.

After visiting a number of wineries in the Niagara region with friends, we decided to have lunch at the Riverbend Inn. The restaurant offers indoor and outdoor patio service. The inside is very warm and elegant and the patio offers a local view. The salads we ordered were fresh, delicious and not over dressed. For the main course we ordered... More

After an extended review of local restaurants, we chose another more highly rated venue for dinner. Upon arrival at that restaurant, we found the menu to be much more limited than listed on the website. In search of another restaurant, we settled for Riverbend Inn which was located near our B and B. We could not have been more pleasantly... More

Who wouldn't want to enjoy dinner overlooking the vineyard? My husband and I enjoyed the meal, the wine, and the atmosphere! (While we were dining, a large hawk swooped down from a nearby tree and came within 20 feet of us.) There is also indoor dining if you choose.
