Excellent dining experience

Last night my wife and I went to the restaurant at the Oban Inn with another couple who are familiar with the restaurant scene in Niagara On The Lake. We had dined at the Oban Inn over the years but we're never really blown away by the experience. We were lured back having heard that the chef... read more

We stopped in to the Oban Inn for a quick light meal prior to seeing a play at the Royal George Theatre. We were on a tight timeline which I mentioned upon our arrival: we were greeted warmly and promptly seated. Our server was friendly, efficient and professional. We ordered the apple and beet salad (absent of apples but delicious),... More

Yesterday, we found ourselves at the Oban Inn for lunch. We had planned to dine on the patio of another of NOTL’s establishments, which shall not be named. Despite the fact that we had called the ‘other place’ earlier in the week to make a reservation for lunch on the patio, on our arrival they brusquely told us they were... More

My husband and I ended up here for our anniversary dinner after leaving another restaurant in the area due to unhygienic conditions. So glad we came! The service and attention by Stephen our waiter was second to none and made our evening so much fun. We both had the parsnip and apple soup which was very good, followed by steak... More

CAA Four Diamond Award? To suggest this restaurant is still on par with Langdon Hall is just insulting. We decided to give this place a second try after the recent “changes”. Clearly they were not for the better… The dining room looked only half set with some tables having linen and some bare and with different sized wine glasses set... More

Came to have a celebratory birthday lunch today at the Oban Inn. Had reservations, but for much of the time we were the only ones in the dining room (only 4 total in the dining room in the 2 hours we were there). Nice window table in the atrium - no cold blasts of air from outside. Our server was... More

Treated myself and my father to a holiday meal at one of the NOTL landmark properties. Greeted by the general manager of the property and seated by the window. Given the wine list as well as specials by her. Started with crab cakes and shrimp and followed with striploin. Paired with a Beamsville Bench red wine - check out the... More
