I live in Welland and every so I often I need a Rex Pizza. The food is very good, the drinks are typical to an old bar. It is a legend in Welland. If you are new to Welland go in knowing it is an old bar, with very dated décor but excellent pizza and wings. Try it, you'll go... read more

We have been patronizing the Rex for about 50 years lol. We are off and on, depending on the kitchen quality. Lately we have been back, sitting in the pub area where the service is much better, and Kelly, the barmaid is charming and friendly and very quick, and remembers your usual order when you return! Takeout not recommended as... More

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. The wait staff were friendly and the pizza and wings I shared with the table were great. I just recommend you get takeout and avoid the scary adventure of... More

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.
