This is our third time eating at Zee's Grill but the first time we have stayed at the attached hotel. In a town where most restaurants really have a cook, this one has a chef. The menu is fresh, local when possible and creative. This time we both had the warm mushroom and bacon salad and the pan seared scallops. What luscious tastes, lovely in presentation and in perfect proportion. I can still taste the tempura rapini that accompanied the scallops. Zee's you've done it again! We'll be back.

Thank you taking the time to write a review. I’m happy to hear that you enjoyed your dinning experience with us. We try to use the freshest local ingredients for our menu whenever possible, which can be a bit challenging in the winter months, but spring is right around the corner. I hope you decide to stay with us at the Shaw Club Hotel on your next visit to the Area, and look forward to having you back to the restaurant.

We went here on the recommendation of our B & B and it was a spot on recommendation. The lobster poutine was a great dish (only issue may have been it was pretty big for an appetizer) and the mains were really enjoyable too. Everything was freshly prepared and the service was quick but not overbearing so you could enjoy your meal. It has a great location and atmosphere and I am sure the large patio would be relaxing spot to eat at in the summer.

My husband and I had our first meal at Zee's just over 3 years ago while spending a few days in Niagara on the Lake after our wedding and it was outstanding! We have been back a number of times since and are never disappointed. The menu is filled with tantalizing choices which often makes it difficult to decide. We have been pleased with everything from start to finish, but the seared tuna was the best I have ever had and you cannot pass up dessert! I would highly recommend this spot to anyone visiting the area. It’s definitely convenient if you are staying at the Shaw Club hotel. With our wedding anniversary in December, it is nice that you can dress for dinner and walk down the hall!

While staying at the hotel and with the winter cold outside, it was so nice to get dressed up and just walk down the hall to our table for 2. We were greeted with a "hello from the chef" appetizer. The portions were just enough without going overboard and the variety was brilliant. Even dessert was superb. Had breakfast here the next day and was impressed again with the quality of the food and how tasty everything was.
