The REX is an old hotel in downtown Welland. Lots of parking and walking distance to the canal. Food is great. THey have good prices and the food is filling and full of flavor. The bar is dark, and outdated, but I think that is part of it's charm. Lots of choices, and large portions.

Super Za and Wings . Very friendly service. A Family run city landmark for years. Have been there for parties and a couple of Funerals. They can handled any size group that you care to throw at them. You will not be let down by your visit.

Anytime I'm in Welland, we gather here for great pizza and wings. Always cold beer on tap. The decor is totally lacking, but the food well makes up for it.

The food and service were great but they really need to do something about the air conditioning. Too hot to fully enjoy the meal.

The Rex Hotel is a family owned and operated business. It has been open since the early 1900's. The food is homemade Sicilian Italian. The atmosphere is cozy. There are 2 dining rooms and a lounge/bar. The Veal Parmeson and Alfredo Fettuccine is so fantastic. They are known for their Pizza as well. And the Crab Cakes with sweet chili... More

Very dated building . Used for off track betting. Many small rooms. The pizza was ok. The waitress had to go into the off track area to get our drinks , Very slow service

Well I have given a favourable review before but today I hope I don't have a stroke from the excess salt. Does no one monitor the kitchen? We had a takeout pizza and could hardly eat it, after process of elimination we figure it's the sauce that's so salty. Did someone drop the box in the pot? We don't like... More

Renowned for their thin crust pizzas, this place delivers one the best I've had outside of Italy! Served piping hot and fully loaded it is terrific value. This place is a local favourite with great local beers on tap in a quaint style pub with multiple TVs showing top sports events. A must try is their Buffalo Buffalo's wings-mediun whic... More

This long standing establishment has great pizza. The remainder of the menu is hit and miss. Take it to go because the inside is dark dated and smells old

One of the first things we tried when we moved to welland! Their pizza is delicious and the guys at the take out counter are super nice! A little pricey but nothing more than what you would pay if a pizza wasn't on special. Very good wings too!
