Excellent dinner spot

Great location right by the golf course at The Charles. Very nice patio if you want to be outside. It had a different menu so I cannot comment on that food but it looked fabulous on the way by. Hob Nob has a formal dining room or the veranda where we sat. Very bright and airy. All of the food... read more

We lunched on the patio, with the fountain trickling in the background, surrounded by beautiful flowering window boxes and the well tended grounds of The Charles Inn. The food was excellent, from the freshly baked rolls thru the entrees to the desserts. A very pleasant Niagara Pinot Grigio from Burnt Ship Bay complemented my salmon nicely. Our server was very...

We ate dinner here twice and loved both. We ordered a la carte to stay on our diets but the 6 course tasting menu looked fabulous.

Went for a late dinner in the bar at HobNob. Food was excellent and so was the service. Would recommend it for sure.

Last year, our visit to the Charles Inn included the best dinner of our trip. This year, we and two friends enjoyed our dinner, but not all options were as excellent as last year. They told us they had just started a new menu. Our waitress was very good and checked with us as needed. Our table was a nice... More

We had dinner in the solarium section. The serve was excellent. The menu was almost the same as listed on the website. The chicken with morels and morel cream was excellent. The chicken was probably one of the best flavored chicken dishes that I had eaten lately. The fish that night was a lake fish that we were unfamiliar with... More

Our group of four couples dined here while staying at the Charles Hotel. Because we had not made dinner reservations in advance for the 8 of us, it looked to be a challenge to seat us all together. We were provided a complimentary sparkling wine during the short wait. Dinner was excellent. Am still savoring the memory of the panko... More
