We dined here at the recommendation of the concierge at Prince of Wales where we were staying.
The Charles Inn is a charming, romantic historic Inn. The dining room consists of a series of rooms with lovely fireplaces, chandeliers and other period pieces. We were greeted and seated in a quiet corner.
The menu was very appealing. I had the Gnocchi (best I have ever had) and my wife had the Jerusalem Artichoke Soup which was delish.
For our mains, I had the diver scallops and bacon (words can't describe how good it tasted) and my wife loved the pickerel. The wines our waitress recommended were spot on - I was surprised that they were from Niagara. Jillian provided attentive service and made great recommendations.
We will be back.

Thank you very much for your feedback regarding your recent dinner here at The Charles Inn. All of the items that you made reference to have made their way back to the menu in some form or another, as they are some of my favourites. I’m happy to hear that you and your wife enjoyed them, hopefully as much as I do!! We take pride in supporting our local wineries and winemakers, by offering 100% Niagara Wines on our Wine List. We look forward to welcoming you back for your next dinner.

Food here was good, service was a bit boring. Watch where you are seated, ask to be away from the reception area. We were sat near there and all you heard was them answering the phone and their personal conversations. Lunch was just ok however, we have had people we know go for dinner and have thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Maybe it was just the day we went, although that shouldn't matter.
Would try this restaurant again. :)

We had a wonderful Mothers Day Lunch with my Family. The Inn was decorated in period time to make it a Quaint and Special time. The service was outstanding in detail and profession.

I absolutely loved the Charles Inn. The food was crafted by a master, and our waitress did a phenomenal job pairing wine with our menu. The Charles Inn Restaurant had a very romantic ambiance - my only issue is that we were seated too close to the other couples. I woud however return again.
