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.

Staying in Niagara Falls meant the only restaurants nearby were chains of average food. Just a short 20 minute drive down the parkway is this gem. Our bill was only $70 which is impressive considering we had appetizers, drinks, and large meals. In comparison our bill at TGIFridays the day before was $60 for just two meals. The service was...

Literary "old" but nicely kept except for the dust. Although we received a friendly greeting and were seated promptly, the dust on the old wood was highly visible and needed to be cleaned. The menu choices were plentiful and all looked very good, but we decided to share three appetizers for lunch as it gave us a nice selection. We... More

The old bank bistro 41 jarvis st ft erie. We had the Lake Erie Perch and a veggie pizza. Both were very good. We found that the service was slow, but worth the wait. There are two dining section with one section having a piano lounge and bar. The decorations (as an old bank) are unique and interesting. We would... More
