“No hidden gem”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

We stopped by this restaurant for dinner on our last night in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Unfortunately, this was a poor ending to our otherwise wonderful vacation. After being seated on the patio, we waited a full 10 minutes for someone to take our drink orders. When our harried waitress finally did arrive, she offered no apologies for the delay and was short and curt. The food, it turned out, was equality devoid of personality. Salads were limp and the calamari bland and tough, definitely not worth the $15 price tag. My wife had the Mushroom Risotto which she said was decent. I had the NY steak which arrived overcooked with a large lump of tasteless mashed potato. The whole experience was a major disappointment. We won't be back.

“Pleasant dinner, great service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

We had arrived fairly late and chose this spot because it was right across from our hotel. The food was good, nice portion size and the wine was great - we picked a local red from Pillitteri.
What made the meal even better was the great service we received from Cherrilyn. She was both friendly & efficient.

“Oasis off main drag - excellently food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Our dishes - salmon, shrimp cocktail & caesar salad - were all really excellent. The restaurant is off the main drag so it is not so chaotic with people. Our dishes were wonderful and they've got an excellent selection of Niagara wines by the glass - well worth trying. Minor quibble - absolutely NO substitutions, so you HAVE to have the french fries, cannot substitute a veggie.

“nice restaurant off main street”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

Had dinner before the theatre at grill. I ordered the ribeye steak and y friend ordered the fish. My steak was advertised as 14 oz. but looked more like 8oz or less and had some fat. it came medium well--not medium but I didn't send it back. I asked for double veggies instead of the potato which they agreed to but the side of vegs was small. my friend got the fish --several huge fillets, potatoes and tons of veggies. she couldn't even finish her plate!!!!!! the salad was so tiny but the price was big. I say this restaurant is inconsistent in their portion control. was not happy when I left and wouldn't go back

“Great Steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

This restaurant was a great find as it offered excellent food, good service and a good atmosphere. Both my girlfriend and I had the New York Striploin which was an amazing quality and cooked perfectly. Compared to some of the very expensive dining options in the Niagara-on-the-Lake area, Grill on King was a great choice at a more reasonable price.
