We arrived at a bit of an off hour however, we were treated to an excellent lunch;accompanying the wonderful welcoming host and server. Our host cleared a... More

t Have always loved the Oban Inn......sad that their pub area is no longer there. I enjoyed my three course meal but felt it was pricey. My husband had soup which was a ridiculous price and he said it was tasteless. (cauliflower).He should have sent it back straight away but I didn't push him to do that. Lovely location away... More

I have been to Oban Inn several times since childhood. The Inn burned to the ground and was re-built. All was as beautiful as I remembered it. The gardens are beautiful to look at while eating. We enjoyed the duck and salmon. The food was all of fine quality and very enjoyable. We had the first seating at 5:00 p.m.,... More

Everything was wonderful here, from the great service and suggestions from our waiter, Razeen, to the exquisitely prepared and presented dinners. And even though my wife and I had only ordered one glass of wine apiece, Razeen came by and added a "splash" to the glass after I had emptied mine...nice touch!

What a wonderful place to eat. Unique options, knowledgeable staff. Had the opportunity to not only eat here, but learn some of the history behind the Oban Inn, including some lesser known ghost stories. It was fantastic!

We really loved this restaurant and if we had been staying longer in the area we would have definitely returned! It was so peaceful and quiet when we visited (quiet being a big thing for me!) and the meal delicious and beautifully served. I should have written what I had that night but for many reasons am only just getting... More

A couple of times a year we travel to Niagara On The Lake (NOTL) from Rochester, NY, for a play at the Shaw Festival. Today we had friends with us and made advanced reservations at the Oban. With family in Hamilton, the Oban was a favorite meeting place for over 50 years, but we had not visited in over ten... More

On a recent visit to Niagara on the Lake, Canada, we visited the Oban Inn for dinner. The restaurant had been recommended by our innkeeper. We found the restaurant to be quite charming. Elegant, comfortable decor greeted us on our arrival. Our table had a wonderful view of the beautiful garden. Our server was attentive and most helpful. His recommendation... More
