The night we chose to take an out of town friend to what we thought would be an upscale dining experience, ended as quickly as it could have started. When we walked into the restaurant it did not seem overly busy yet I was given the impression we needed reservations. We were taken to our seats in the newer part... More

The Old Bank Bistro is our 'go-to' restaurant in Fort Erie - always a good meal and very consistent with service and quality. Servers are the best, they know us as return customers and always provide excellent service and conversation. You can't go wrong with ordering a steak or the Lake Erie perch, two of our favorite meals. A break... More

Restaraunt is well laid out with a bar room and separate eating areas, one being like a closed in street cafe, complete with lamp posts and phone booth. Great back room area for large groups or a more cozy dinning experience. Great seafood and steak dishes at reasonable prices. A great place for a unique dinning experience.

Wouldn't do the shrimp again and the pizza was far from thin crust !Very close to the worst pizza i have ever had . I'm guessing... More

We went for the "" Date night. "" You pick from a specific menu. Get a local bottle of wine and a shared desert. My food was the same as you would order at the food court in a mall. We were not impressed. Sad thing is we went the year before and the waitress forgot to order our apps.... More

We went in for a late lunch / early dinner and it was a great choice. We had a look at the dinner menu, (prices are kinda high), and then the very helpful waitress came over and suggested we could still order lunch, (for 1/3 the price of dinner). What a great suggestion, and she really didn't have to do... More
