During the 60's and 70's the Oban was tanamount to the "club" for the locals. Unfortunately the hotel and restaurant were totally destroyed by fire and then rebuilt and assumed by new management. Gone was that "special place" and a new elegance took over. Most locals feel uncomfortable there. We had a special and wonderful experience there last evening and... More

We were staying at the Oban Inn and from many restaurants, we selected the Inn to eat at on both nights of our 2 night stay. The meals were terrific and the price good to high but the food was worth it. I had the Tuna each night. The service was terrific. On one evening, there was only one server... More

This was our 5th time staying at the Inn but, on my wife's urging, our 1st dining experience. Will be the last. Service was OK but seemed a bit rushed. Very limited menu (5 items + 1 feature). I chose the quail off the menu - OK but come on - let's use some creativity. Wife had duck breast feature... More

I stayed at the Inn so having dinner there was super convenient. It was pretty good and surprisingly busy.

While walking around town before a 2:00 matinee, we stumbled across the Oban Inn and enjoyed a great lunch. It is and excellent place for a leisurely lunch.

Stayed 3 nights in this nice hotel, great room and bar, disappointed that the pool facility was closed, (not advised when booking) Its a very unusual breakfast ( avoids having to employ a breakfast chief) which was a delight on the first morning but rather tired on the 3 morning because it is identical each day

If you are attending theater at Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, consider the restaurant in the Oban Inn. With three friends, I attended in October before a play. This place is top drawer with a chef who knows how to create wonderful dishes. I had the Veal which came with lentils, a carrot and other vegetables cooked just as they should be, barely... More

Fantastic food, service, location, staff, décor, and anything else that goes with dinning out! What a beautiful place, we should have booked there for the night.

We had not been for a time and found the menu to our satisfaction, well presented and cooked. However we had to wait a long time to order our meal despite the room not being busy. It was just as bad waiting for our plates to be cleared so much so we missed coffee. Perhaps the staff on duty should... More

This is my third time at the Oban Inn and 10th visit to Niagara on the Lake. I love coming to NOL for the great chefs who know how to elevate the outstanding seasonal produce of this region. My last visit was under-whelming. Decent execution but nothing memorable. In fact, my home meals would be similar. Seems like trying to... More
