We were there for lunch before the Shaw! The new Inn is lovely and we sat in the multi-windowed dinning area, which looked over beautiful gardens. Our waitress was very good & timely. We all enjoyed the special of the day that was the whitefish (lightly crusted) with a multitude of vegetables (steamed) We had a Canadian Inniskillin Pino Girigo... More

We were vacationing and if you are in town during August I recommend you make reservations as all of the restaurants book up fast. We were lucky enough to be able to get a reservation at the Oban Inn! The staff members were all very charming and attentive. Our waitress, Stephanie, did an outstanding job with us, as well as,...

It's a very small historical property Located in beautiful town Niagara on the lakes. Just 10min drive from the great Niagara falls. Their suite rooms are amazing.

Really enjoyed a fine meal at the Oban last Saturday after a day of golf. Service was outstanding and we benefited from Perry's assistance with some unique and tasty Niagara wine selections. Will definitely repeat.

An elegant setting on a quiet street close to the golf course and lake, the place is part of a hotel/spa. Recommend you make reservations in the weekends or festivals but we used open table about 4 hours in advance with no issues. Service was excellent and efficient with the menu choices not overwhelming. The featuring of local wines that... More

I thought this place was great. Excellent service, and fantastic food. Perry, the Manager really made the evening extra special with the wine recommendations and overall warm hospitality. Highly recommend the Oban for dinner and drinks!

I took three guests from out of town (all with sophisticated pallets) to The Oban last Saturday night. We were all delighted with the excellence steaks, great wine recommendations from our host, Perry, and the attentive service of our server, Stephanie. Highly recommended.

This is a place that had a good reputation, and assured me on the phone that dealing with food allergies would be no problem. Well, the food was Ok, but the selection of allergy friendly dishes was not. A salad or a steak were the options - something that happened at another restuarant we visited on this trip (Blumen in...
