Went with another couple to try this restaurant in a heritage building in downtown Niagara on The Lake. Although I was thinking we'll be going into a musty dining room, a signature on many building of this vintage.. but experienced only a very pleasant and well appointed rooms with a couple cozy working fireplaces.

We met a lovely couple in the lounge at the Prince of Wales. They could not recommend the restaurant there, but offered several others. It was great! Food was prepared and presented in a unique manner and delicious. Service was excellent. I had salmon and my husband had chicken.

We went to HobNob in midweek. Our waiter was professional and efficient. His description of the entrees were very precise. I had the salmon and my husband had the pickerel. Both were presented beautifully and the taste was outrageously delicious. I would highly recommend this lovely restaurant within the stately Charles Inn.

Recommended by Harbour house staff. Did not wish to use the formal dining area so they set a table or 6 in the 'lounge' and it was perfect. Food was excellent in an intimate setting. Will go back every time we are in N.O.L.

A lovely place, with great food. It was the first time that we had tried it. We usually go to the Stagecoach restaurant, but wanted something different. The menu was creative and they went out of their way to be friendly and offer good service.

Been here several times but this was our most disappointing evening. Our waiter did not meet the high class expectations of other visits. As he described the food, he almost put his fingers in the actual food. When we received our bills, he made note that we weee on a hotel special BUT he had printed off the full bill... More

This was our second dinner visit to the Hob Nob. This time we were in town for the Annual NOTL Ice Wine Festival. On this occasion we were treated to a delicious Mushroom Veloute Amuse Bouche.

Nothing makes us happier then hearing when guests return and leave happy yet again. The Ice Wine Festival is the perfect way to break up the winter blues, especially when paired with a delicious meal at the HobNob. We really appreciate the review and look forward to welcoming you back in 2018 - if not sooner! More

From the moment we walked through the door, we were very pleased with the atmosphere, service and ambiance at the Hobnob.
