Good food, great service.

The food was pretty good.The patio was nice, a bit crowded. Our server was great, a bit quirky, but we found him entertaining. The restaurant is in a great location. Not sure the amount on the bill matched the food we ordered. A little pricey like many NOTL restaurants. Beer was cold and the food... read more

The price is 16.95. Do not order house burger. I had fish and chips that was cooked in not so fresh oil. The price is... More

Had lunch here on a Monday. Short line for a table. We went upstairs and it was very comfortable on a particularly hot and humid day. Service was quick and our selections were very good: Caesar Salad, a wrap sandwich and broccoli/ 4 cheese quiche w/ spring mix salad. Prices reasonable. Rest rooms need improving.

A great little classy place with good food. The staff was very friendly and courtious. My wife and I had our Anniversary dinner on the upper patio. The food was excellent I had the lamb and was done just right. My wife had the salmon which wss cook to perfection. We will definitely be back in the future!

Went for dinner and ordered lamb shank. Came in dry, cold. Not much taste. Mashed potato was not hot, vegetable so so. The waiter was courteous apologised (and professional) and took it back without any fuss. I, then, ordered with hamburger and fries. Hamburger burnt at the edges ( I was told that is normal) and some areas in the... More

The fish and chips here were excellent! My husband and I shared that and a caesar sale. My kids also had fish and chips. They also had a great wine selection and we enjoyed a local Chardonnay. The only issue was that it was a hot day and if you eat upstairs on the terrace, there is no real shade.... More

Some of the salad leaves were black and not fresh so i didnt touch it but the sandwich was tasty.. Had turkey, peameal... More

This is an unpretentious and fun restaurant. There is a varied menu to suit most tastes. The outstanding feature is the attentive and friendly service. We had a great evening with two friends from NY, NY. Although we got insect bites the upstairs balcony is a great location for watching the local life pass by,

The Shaw Café and Wine Bar is an interesting restaurant which sits right on Queen Street. Conveniently located, this restaurant is great for people watching from the patio. The food however is less than exciting, and the service was average. I can't say that I would rush back.

Can't say enough about the food and service. When we visit Niagra-on-the-Lake again, we will certainly stop back.
