Quick supper before a night out.

We were looking for a quick supper representing good value before a night of carolling in Old Town. This venue hit the mark. Simple old school type of family restaurant. Good food. Good value. Good presentation and service. Not fine dining by any stretch but lots if selection and everyone at our... read more

Good service. Nice space with lots of roosters. Food not so great. 1/2 chicken dinner done to death, dry and almost inedible. A side of gravy or sauce would have helped. Fries - frozen. Salad OK. Veggies on the side overcooked.Pie OK. They brag about their pie and we were so disappointed.

There aren't many breakfast choices in Niagara on the lake but this place did the job. Nice service, and good food. Coffee cup never went dry. Affordable too. Was older crowd when we went so no screaming kids was appreciated. Especially after wine tasting the night before.

We ate a couple of meals at this Little Red Rooster Restaurant: lunch and supper. Both meals were excellent and more than either my husband or I could eat. The restaurant is licensed and we recommend this restaurant to any one, couples, families or solo individuals.

The empty dining room at dinner time should have been our first clue. The menu looks good and the prices seem fair, but then the food arrives. The spinach salad is mostly a pile of spinach leaves with seeds, raisins, feta chunks and peanuts on top (strange combo!) The garlic bread was stale and dry - we sent it back.... More

Do not eat here if you are a tourist. Very inattentive staff, broken unsanitary china. We were served the wrong food after having waited almost an hour. Locals who arrived here before us got quickly served and paid before we got our wrong order

Worst breakfast we've ever had. I had to move my grilled bacon and cheese sandwich to a napkin because the dish smelled of rotten eggs. Place was very dirty. Unable to use the bathroom because it was so dirty.

Went with my wife for lunch. Nice building from the outside but the interior is dated and in need of a good cleaning. Lots of rooster kitsch everywhere. Tattered menus are just the tip of a place where they have lost interest. Coffee was tasteless except for the flavour of a coffee machine long overdue for a cleaning. The hot... More

We live in Niagara on the lake and have come here numerous times for breakfast and lunch. We have also had family gatherings at the restaurant for dinner. The food is very good, home style cooking at a reasonable price. The service is attentive and friendly and welcoming by the owner herself. We will continue to come back to enjoy... More

We went here a few times when in the area. They offer a good hearty breakfast at a reasonable price. The coffee was really amiss both mornings the last time we were there.
