Outstanding service, empty except for us. Sensational food, lingering welcomed. Very pricy, but worthy for special event.

This was my second time at Charles Inn. The first time I had went with my Dad. Both times, this restaurant did not disappoint ! This is my most favourite restaurant when I go to Niagara Falls. The location is in a beautiful neighbourhood with lovely shops and scenery (especially during the summer). The restaurant is in the inn itself,... More

Had dinner here during our weekend at Great Wolf Lodge. We are a family of foodies so we drove 20min to Niagara-on-the-lake after a day of water fun at the Lodge. The sous chef prepared a wonderful meal. Waiter was friendly and attentive. It would have been a most enjoyable evening except our table was too too small. We are... More

Beyond the food being superb, the ambience is so warm and inviting. Cannot beat it for a quiet evening of good food and conversation, especially if you love being in an authentic 19th-century space with a cozy fire in the fireplace. We go here every time we come to town now.

We got a late reservation here on a Wednesday night after traveling almost 9 hours and were not disappointed. Our table was on the veranda where it was nice and quiet. Service was excellent and well informed about the food and local wines. Gravlax were delicious (could have eaten a lot more) and the crispy skin arctic char was cooked... More

Friends recommended The HobNob and when I checked their special menu prices, they were far more reasonable than the Vintage Hotels group in Niagara on the Lake. We chose to have the menu as a late lunch rather than evening meal, but I believe the same menu and prices were on offer until the evening. There was plenty of choice... More

Went to the Hob Nob restaurant for a dessert. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, and the atmosphere was very cozy and comfortable. The desserts were delicious, especially the creme brûlée. Overall an amazing experience.

Will be honest went here because we had a gift card. But from moment we walked in, we were not disappointed. We were first there so got a table in front of fireplace. This is an old house and very quaint. It was still decorated for Christmas and we felt like we had stepped back in time....fire burning, soft romantic... More

We had dinner here one night in January - so the restaurant was quiet. The service was very good and our meals were excellent. Conveniently located. We would definitely return.

This place was recommended by our hosts at Kellar House and they were right on. The food was amazing and service first rate. The decor was century old classic and very inviting. Will come back again for sure!
