We walked past this restaurant last year and didn't give it a second thought. But after reading reviews this year, decided to try it. both had fish dishes and both were exceptional. Service was very good and they totally accommodated us before the Shaw Theater. Be back next year.

Treadwell's was outstanding. The food was cooked to perfection and everything was so fresh. I had the whitefish and it was the best that I have ever had. My husband had the lamb and it was cooked to perfection. It is a little pricey but well worth every dollar.

An afternoon on the Treadwell patio (before 3pm mind you as they close from 3-5 in between the lunch and dinner hours) is a sublime experience. Kaitlyn (and I hope I spelled her name correctly) was attentive, but not too attentive. She was very kind and provided me with a great recommendation for the Lobster Club sandwich.

Vanessa graciously allowed me to be seated and served at 2:58pm

I started with a lovely glass of 5 Rows Sauvignon Blanc. It was very tasty.

When Kaitlyn served the Lobster Club, I was amazed at its appearance, but overwhelmed by its flavor. This is a lunch entree not to be missed!

So.. If you are on Queen Street between the Starbucks and Victoria, you would be missing an incredible experience by not stopping at Treadwell

I have been to Treadwell restaurant on a few occasions and have never been disappointed! The service has always been exceptional. A sommelier will gladly offer wine pairings with your meal, and staff/chefs are very accommodating when something on the menu is not quite to your taste (substitutions etc.). Staff are welcoming and kind, and not pretentious. The food is all locally sourced, and high quality. Everything is always cooked to perfection. Portion sizes are large enough to leave you content, but not bursting at the seams. This is a restaurant that I look forward to visiting every time I am in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Try to make reservations in advance, as the restaurant is limited in the number of tables inside. In the summer there is a nice patio outside that accommodates an additional 50 people or so.

Have read glowing reviews of Treadwell for several years now & this weekend finally had the opportunity to experience the food first hand. Definitely lives up to the hype. Fresh flavours without being overly complicated. Love the scallops with pork belly. And service was just what I look for - attentive and friendly, if only I could remember our server's name!
