The restaurant-inn is outstanding for diners looking for a fancier, old world atmosphere. This stately inn deserves full marks for its dining rooms/alcoves with crystal chandeliers, many fireplaces, and impressive floor length windows overlooking the gardens. The historic inn (from 1832) symbolizes the Niagara-On-The-Lake heritage and will definitely take root in your memory. I helped organize a special event here, after having become familiar with the restaurant myself during "Fabulicious", an annual local dining festival in late winter. The service on all occasions was efficient, and the price was reasonable considering the food quality, dining ambiance and the location on Queen St (the main street in town). I would not classify this as casual dining as it is a luxury inn. Attire would be more casual for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea and slightly smarter dress for dinner. Excellent for special occasions too. This inn also has a wine bar, an enclosed verandah aspect and a few tables with umbrellas out front. If you're making reservations, have a close look at where you would prefer to sit. Myself, I like the dining rooms best over the verandah and wine bar. It may be a matter of personal preference or quite a different case if you are there for drinks. I would not say the restaurant-inn is fully handicapped accessible. There are some stairs to negotiate to get into the restaurant as there is somewhat of a slope leading up to the rear entry, but restrooms are on the main floor. The restaurant-inn has it's own parking in the rear, although not a large one and on occasion, it fills up which means you may have to pay for parking in the street. Parking enforcement in Niagara-On-The-Lake is strict so please be mindful of that when visiting the town.
