Everything was hot with beautiful plate presentation.only negative...was the for the burger ,very messy, heavy on the toppings perhaps.

Heard good things about their food and finally decided to try it. We went for a late lunch. Some interesting choices from appetisers to entrées. We shared the deep fried Ravioli which we enjoyed. My wife ordered the southern fried chicken and buttermilk waffles with...fries and I had the giant Yorkie bowl; English steak and cheese with fries. Chicken was moist, tasty and waffles were very good. Shaved ribeye steak was nicely cooked , would order again but probably will try another dish. Good portions, we were both full.the restaurant is small so depending on when you go you might have to wait. We found the chairs uncomfortable, could use new ones. Prices are comparable with other restaurants outside of Thorold. A pint of draught is $7.50. Will return in the near future.More

We met a friend who lives in Thorold at this restaurant, which he recommended. My dinner, consisting of a cup of gazpacho and a very tasty bacon burger with fries, was very good. The other three members of our party enjoyed their meals as well....The patio is very comfortable; the service is friendly and competent. Strongly recommended.More

can’t say enough about this place. The whole menu is intriguing, you can keep reading and staring and your mind wants everything ! I went with the lobster grilled cheese with a Caesar salad . Everything was delicious , right down to the dressing and...croutons . It was actually the best Caesar salad I’ve had and I was not expecting it to taste so good . I was eager for the lobster but that little side salad almost stole the show. Anyways the lobster grilled cheese was full to the max with delicious lobster chunks. It was such a good portion of lobster meat, and so cheesy and good. The bread was fresh and toasted and delicious as well. My boyfriend got the same thing but with fries. I stole some fries and omg that little side almost stole the whole show again. I can’t believe how good the fries are ?? I was so overwhelmed with good flavours. I want to try everything because it may have been the best food experience I’ve had. Patio was super cute too, lots of fake greenery and lights , makes you feel like you’re in a rainforest or somewhere not in thorald . Well done to this place ! Everyone local and visiting should write this place down to visit . ** my visit was during covid and all safety measures are in action . Masks , distance , etc. Ketchup and al condiments were in throw away containers . I felt safe and comfortable .More

This is a cute little place. The service was good and our lunch was delicious. We all had the Lobster Grilled Cheese that we had heard so much about and it lived up to our expectations. Will definitely go back 😁

Four of us decided to try this restaurant for our lunch date. We had made a reservation and were seated in a comfortable booth. Our server, Tim, was entertaining and great. The featured draft beer was key lime and we were provided with samplers prior...to ordering a pitcher. The lobster grilled cheese, burger of the day and chicken and waffles were excellent. Will definitely be returning!!!More

My wife and I had heard through the grapevine of this little gem. Even though we were staying in Niagara-on-the-Lake, it was worth the drive for the food. We shared the escargot app which was a different slant, served on a bed of polenta. Pam...had a great stir fry and I enjoyed the butter chicken. Everything tasted fresh and delicious, and presented with the flair of someone with passion for their craft! We will be back! The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars, was because both of us found the restaurant cold, and could not physically get comfortable.More
