The welcoming hostess greeted us and we were seated on softly raining summer evening. Did that dampen our spirits? No! The creatively prepared food, good wine list, excellent service and pleasant ambiance on their wide covered porch made our dinner at Zees Grill a memorable vacation stop.

You really don't need to say anymore than that. The food and service was fantastic. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely eat there again! Also tried the Rib eye steak and potatoes au gratin for the main course, WOW!

Very good food, and very creative. We ate here twice, for lunch and dinner. We had a group dinner, the servers were very attentive. Good wine list.

Zees maintains its high quality food and service form year to year. Just across from the Festival Theatre, the location is convenient and attractive. My favorite is the lobster poutine, incredibly rich, but worth every calorie. Service is professional and efficient. A 6PM dinner start should be fine for an 8PM performance.

Dined here with my "life partner" on a Friday evening after seeing a Matinee and doing the requisite shopping. I wasn't sure about the name but the menu looked good and so we had made a 5:30 reservation. Server Ashley was quick, friendly, impeccable, with a thorough knowledge of the menu and a spot-on red wine recommendation. Entrees of shrimp... More

We were visiting Niagra Falls. Went to The Shaw Festival to see The Philanderer. We had dinner reservations right after the show. It was literally across the street.

This place is on Picton Street, which turns into Queen Street. It is across from the Shaw Festival Area. The streets are beautifully planted and our location right next to the sidewalk was nice. The food is tasty, the service is average and the prices are fair.
