“This is how eating out should taste”

Very nice atmosphere; quiet; attentive staff, our server Joe was great! The app (Thai Beef) and entree (Lake Erie white fish) were genuinely superb. Reasonably priced. Plenty of onsite parking - free!

“Great staff, manager”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

I typically don't write reviews but I was very pleased with my experience at Zees Grill. Beyond good food, I really enjoyed the attentiveness and kindness of the staff. I was particularly impressed with the manager (I think her name was Peggy Jo). She was incredibly responsive and good-natured, while hustling all over the restaurant. She also dealt with some loud/rowdy customers really professionally. I plan to go back.

Thank you so much for such an amazing review of Zees Grill. I agree, we really do have an amazing staff. I was happy to hear you enjoyed your dinner and that we were able to relocate you to a quieter table. I hope the next time you are in Niagara on the Lake you will dine with us again.

“Disappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013

I have been to Zees twice for lunch and really enjoyed the food and the ambience. On Dec. 14, I had recommend Zees and arranged a dinner for a party of 6. It was one disappointment after another. In the summer the Caesar salads were amazing with shaved cheese and I had told my guests to order one. They came with a small amount of cheese and a miniscule amount of dressing......blah !! Two of the meals were sent back as they were not hot and the replacements were no improvement. The other 6 dinners were mediocre at best. Very disappointed !

“Surprised”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013

During a weekend stay in NOTL we dined at both the Charles Inn and Zees Grill...thinking that our experience at the first establishment would be the better of the two. We were very wrong. Our dinner at Zees was outstanding. The quality and presentation of the food continued to amaze with eat course...our server (Kevin) was very informed and helpful (he even remembered we were celebrating a birthday). When you are in NOTL you must put Zees Grill at the top of your dining list. Fabulous.
