Get a Pizza to go!

This is a scary place for the first time eater. There is a cavernous dark hallway in back leading to a dated and dreary dining room. That's the bad. That's it.

After telling someone this was where we were having lunch we were told "HAVE THE PIZZA!" and that was all. This family run operation exceeds expectations on the pizza! Homemade recipes and an array of pizza types on the menu - it will serve anyone's fussy tastes. My fav is the typical pepperoni and bacon one. The chicken alfredo one... More

Pizza and chicken wings are the best in taste. People who I order from are always happy and kind. I believe their pizza and wings are superior over others in Niagara region! !!!!

Old, dilapidated, and funky describe this place. Average pizza and wings but the rest is a no go. Veal Parm is questionable at that price? No need there so much better in Welland

It has been awhile and it will be that way until this place cleans up. It is dark and dingy with sub par food and service. People still eat hear but I'm not sure why, so much better available in town.

The Rex has been in Welland "forever"! It is a typical old fashioned hotel dingingroom/pub/bar combined with off track betting. A little something for everyone. The premises are very well looked after, although the decor is definately 1970's, that being said, the surroundings are comfortable. The staff are friendly and efficient. The diningroom menu is fairly extensive especially considering it... More

The rex has many different rooms to appeal to different people. But it has the best ricotta gnocchi I've ever had. I often order the veal gnocchi to go and it is enough for 2 meals for me.
