Charles Inn or Zee's Grill


My friend and I are staying at NOTL for my birthday this weekend and included in my hotel pkg. is $50 voucher dinner at the Charles Inn or Zee's Grill. I originally chose the Charles Inn but read many positive reviews about Zee's Grill and now second guessing myself. However, I looked at the menus and was surprised by how limited they are. I'm vegetarian but eat fish and noticed that they offer this on the menu. I thought that there would be more of a wider selection including pasta dishes.

Has anyone eaten at any of these two restaurants and if so, which one would you recommend?

Also, does the Charles Inn have a patio? I think I remember reading that Zee's Grill has a nice patio overlooking the Shaw Spa.

Just back from Zees and had their Lobster Poutine! Yum! They have a porch (in case it's raining) and patio. Very nice!

This topic makes me laugh as my family discovered Zee's years ago after the Charles Inn had a bit of a fire scare and directed their customers to Zee's! We did eventually return to the Charles and enjoyed it but we are pretty enamored with and loyal to Zee's and would highly recommend it. Their menu is not totally constant (as are some restaurants' in town...) so it might change but they do have fish and some pasta (including risotto croquettes which are absolutely amazing).
