Ahh, where to begin..well the design and floral display are nice. That's about it. Perhaps our lack of service was because we sat on the upper level patio? Our server did try to have a good attitude, but then he played the disappearing act for extended periods. Food is awful, no taste. Low quality for high end prices. This is... More

We had great steak and salad here and could enjoy the setting and the beautiful building. It is probably nice to sit outside, too, but it was already a bit too cold for us to do so. The staff seem to be eager not to overload themselves, as they were turning away other guests relatively shortly after our arrival (it... More

We love spending time in NOTL - and we enjoy our Dinner at the Shaw café. Always get a table at the patio - people watching! The staff is friendly. Service with a smile the food is good and comes hot to the table. If I may suggest something - it may be a good idea to change the menu... More

I am local..live in St Catharines. A friend and I had a spa appt at pillar and post and thought we would stop here for a couple drinks and perhaps lunch. The girl that greeted asked if we were staying for lunch or dinner...I replied with drinks and some apps. She looked around and said (with absolute attitude) I'm sorry... More

They say you can't get good, cheap, and quick all in one restaurant. We had theatre tickets for an 8pm performance, went to the restaurant at 645 and were told there would be a wait for an outdoor table, about 20 minutes, but none for indoors, so we would have plenty of time to get the performance which was a...

We stopped here during the Ice Wine Festival. It was early in the day so the outdoor heaters weren't turned on. After our sampling, we decided a cup of coffee would be in order. Even though we only ordered drinks (non-alcoholic) and pastries, the staff was courteous and helpful. We hope to go back to sample some of the many... More

Located on Queen Street, it is a memorable building, with seating on the terrace as well. Nice wine selection, as well as lunch offerings for a reasonable price for the area. Service was excellent.

Hiked the Niagara Glen which, as always, was phenomenal and scenic. Those raging river torrents never cease to amaze me. After the hike, decided to treat my sister, who was visiting from the Philippines, to a nice early dinner at the Shaw. I chose the place because the menu looked good, and there was a line-up of people waiting for... More
