We went for the "" Date night. "" You pick from a specific menu. Get a local bottle of wine and a shared desert. My food was the same as you would order at the food court in a mall. We were not impressed. Sad thing is we went the year before and the waitress forgot to order our apps.... More

We went in for a late lunch / early dinner and it was a great choice. We had a look at the dinner menu, (prices are kinda high), and then the very helpful waitress came over and suggested we could still order lunch, (for 1/3 the price of dinner). What a great suggestion, and she really didn't have to do... More

Had a fantastic time last night with family and friends in downtown Ft Erie. The "Bank" as it is known to locals left us with the feeling we could not wait until our next visit. The building itself is worth a look see. Tables and booths are both there for you to enjoy your meal. Lots of space. Can take... More

First time here and ordered the Souvaki Dinner and it was excellent. The table shared some apps I liked the bruscetta bread in particular. The service was great and the Faux patio was a nice touch for the atmosphere. Will return on my next visit to Fort Erie

We dined this month and a few other times at The Old Bank Bistro, The perch are beautifully done with a light coating and tender along with excellent coleslaw and mashed potatoes. The buffalo chicken pasta was excellent also. And the service was very good. I would suggest that consideration be given to adding padding either in the booths or... More

Just celebrated our 31st anniversary at the OBB. We both ordered the 12 oz rib steak. We like the outside charred with a medium centre. They came cooked to perfection with peppercorn rub, mushrooms, fries and Caesar salad. The usual wait staff that we are used to seeing were away due to illness but we were thrilled to be served...

We over-indulged! The food was simply wonderful. We had the filet with crab layered between. It was tender and delicious and I just had to finish it. This was followed by turtle cheesecake and it also was divine - we actually took a piece home to enjoy the next day. We had a thoroughly lovely evening.

Thank Heather M
