We saw the good reviews on tripadvisor so we went there. It was sunny out so we sat in the back patio overlooking the cute garden. We ordered the salmon with wild rice and a cheese platter (x3) to share. Both were amazing! Too bad they were out of one of the cheeses but one of the best value cheese platters we had because they give a good chunk of the cheeses. Our server was also very friendly and we overall had a great experience there and would definitely go again!

Note for parking: Free parking on Simcoe road on the side opposite of the restaurant!

It was recommended by our hosts at Kellar House and they were right about the food and service. Delicious and first rate service.

Best food andbest service I have had in a very long time. We had the tasting menu with wine pairings. At first i was a little skeptical of the pairings. Gewürztraminer with cheese? But in each instance Chef's choice was right on. Our server was remarkably knowledgeable about each aspect of the menu (and I apologize that I neglected to write down her name). It's not a "hi, I'm Tammy and I'll be your server kind of place." Truly the best meal in NOTL. pricey but worth it.

On our 33rd Anniversary we dined at the Charles Inn Restaurant on a stormy night in Niagara-on-the-Lake. We were staying at the Harbour House, a sister property and took the shuttle to Charles Inn to avoid the rain. We had read great reviews about the restaurant and our experience lived up to the great reputation!

We both decided to have the tasting menu with the wine pairing which turned out to be an excellent choice. Each course was delicious and well prepared and presented. We enjoyed six courses starting with Arctic Char, Foie Gras, Scallops, a wonderful grilled beef tenderloin, cheese and dessert. Each course was paired with a different local wine that were well suited to complement the meal.

The service was good, with the server explaining each course as it arrived, although sometimes he seemed a little bit rushed. The evening was made more memorable by the lightning storm that lit up the skies throughout the evening.

A wonderful place to dine on your anniversary and we'll be back on our next visit to Niagara-on-the-Lake.
