The notion that you are complimented by the comment your dressing is similar to Kraft dressing tells everyone what type of eatery you operate!! Our fault we didn't all complain to waiter.

Since this is the third review you and your friends have posted and is a response to my response, it is obvious that the lot of you are a little thick headed. Yes it is your fault you didn't complain to the waiter and also your fault you ate the entire meal!!! Other than the individual who did complain, none... More

Was a quick stop on a bike ride. Service was efficient and happy to take care of us. The salad was typical but the wrap was delicious.

nice venue but the food was very poor .The fried fish was one step up from fish sticks . ,it was dry and chewy . The salad dressing tasted like Kraft bottled dressing. Our friend had the chicken sandwich with sparse chicken on it. I couldn't even eat my food . We definitely will not be returning and if anyone... More

Thank you for your review, It is unfortunate that you had the experience that you did, for that I can only apologize. Your fish was overcooked, we readily accept and own up to that fact and this is why we removed the item from your bill with our deepest apologies, but there were two orders of fish on your table...

We visit a small family owned winery near by and they recommended the Old Firehall. It was not really busy as it was mid afternoon. The service was very friendly and fast. We both had salads with grilled marinated chicken which was very good. This is a small restaurant and us not for dining. It was however, a great spot... More

I went to the Old Firehall on the advice of the front desk clerk of the hotel I was staying at. We arrived there at around 8Pm and the dining room had 3 or 4 tables occupied. The waitress asked us to seat ourselves and we sat at the only 4 person table that was available. The table happened to... More

My girlfriend and I came here for a dinner and absolutely loved the place! We got Beef Tenderloin and the Salmon. The food was perfectly cooked. Even though they were busy, the service was great - very welcoming! This place is very charming with excellent food at reasonable prices! Highly recommend!

Thank you for taking time to write a review, however, I am left a bit confused with respect to your comments. You start off by saying the restaurant was average but say nothing about why you thought it was average. You state that the waiter told you as you were seated that there would be a bit of a wait...

The food was great. I had the firefighters steak, with a wonderful salad. Both were excellent. My wife had the roasted vegetable salad, and she indicated it was delicious also. Great out-of-the-way place, if you were looking for something outside of Niagara on the Lake.

We arrived around 7pm on a Saturday so we expected to wait for a table. When we sat at the bar while waiting for a table on the patio the bartender (also owner of the restaurant) chose not to offer us a drink and we sat there for 20 mins with no service. Next we got out table outside and... More

Wow!! Exaggerations abound in this one. You did not wait for 20 min, you waited for less than 10, when you were directed to the bar to sit and given menu to begin to look over you were not turned toward the bar nor was your partner, so i took it like you were just interested in getting a table...

Been here many times. It's our favourites place in ontario. Marina and I try to get here for special occasions. Great food. Great service and good wines. Beats the rush of downtown not or the falls.
