Great Lunch Spot for Non-Wine Drinkers

Hi

My wife and I will be visiting NF from Saturday until Tuesday. One of the days we plan to drive to NOTL and spend the day and have lunch. We do not drink wine but appreciate a good beer or mixed drink. This may be a stupid question but are there any breweries in NOTL. We would appreciate suggestions on where to have lunch outside (if it is a nice day) that either looks over "Main" Street or the water (lake). We are not looking for a upscale lunch just a comfortable place to have some good food. Thanks so much. We are looking forward to our trip out there.

Queen's Landing hotel, located at the east end of main street, has a great view of the harbour from their patio cafe----and beer on tap I believe. :)

The Epicurean on main street is a wonderful little spot too......if you can get a seat!

Another place that's a bit off the beaten track but offers a view of the vineyards from the patio is Riverbend Inn on the Parkway. Their lounge menu is casual. We've found the food is always great, and the view relaxing.

And here's some info about breweries:

Hope that gives you a few options. Have a great time!

There are no breweries, but there are a few pubs:

Olde Angel Inn www.angel-inn.com

The Irish Harp theirishharppub.com/

Corks http://www.corksniagara.com/ has a porch overlooking Queen St.

And note that the 2 brewpubs mentioned by Tobie -Taps on Queen and the Syndicate - are both in Niagara Falls.

vivanueva,

If you get a chance, try the Syndicate (it's on Lundy's Lane). They have a great selection of beers made on site, their food is excellent (not the usual pub fare at all), and prices are very good.
