Pleasant setting and varied menu. The hamburger is second-to-none, as is the Caesar salad. Exceptional service, and very good food. Always a pleasant experience.

I went to lunch with friends this week. Granted it was during fabulisious (Nov. 10th to 17th) so the three course meal was $25. so was well worth it. I did check out there regular lunch menu also would be well worth it. Ambiance, service and food excellent. I chose their salad, salmon and bread pudding. All of us enjoyed... More

We have come to Niagara-on-the-lake for decades and dined and stayed at most of the hotels in this beautiful town. This was the first time staying at the Oban Inn. I remember years ago the lounge operated on the honour system; you ate and drank in the beautifully appointed lounge and simply went to the up to the bar afterwards... More

We had a reservation for 7:45 on a Saturday evening and showed up on time only to be told there was a bit of a wait for our table. Not a problem - we took a seat at the bar with other couples waiting for their table (not a good sign) to have a drink and 45 minutes later were... More

amazing package for the fall included spa and restaurant discount coupons, wine tasting and more! we had a delightful Premium Queen room with a sitting area in a glass enclosed "porch/verandah". Truly a pleasant experience - and the food at their restaurant was also amazing. What a trip!

Chef Karrie is doing a great job. The mussels were the best I've ever had. The broth was complex and delicious. Dessert portions were generous and equally tasty! I had the panna cotta. Great for sharing.

Stopped at Oban Inn as the lunch portion of a guided wine tour. There was 13 people in our group (2 tables of 2 and a table of 7) and the Inn was told in advance of our arrival. My wife and I had to ask repeatedly for bread and water that the other tables received at once. And then... More

Always enjoyed the Oban Inn, but for whatever reason hadn't been for many year. It was delightful to be reacquainted with it. I recently had dinner there with four friends and we all raved about the food. We did find the wine menu (bottles) to be a bit on the pricey side and we each settled on single glasses which... More

They were rude and did not honor our reservation. Said their kitchen had closed! We drove over an hour to get there for a special occasion. The person who we spoke to was condescending and loudly repeated our name 6 times for the whole restaurant to hear. Tip for travelers: AVOID this place

Form the Inn to the restaurant and the spa, each experience was wonderful. The rooms are spacious with super comfortable beds that you just don't want to leave. Restaurant is cozy and the food is delicious. Spa was a wonderful experience. I had a facial but it was more like a full body massage and facial. The location is just... More
