While we've been to Zee's many times and have enjoyed it, this time the experience wasn't quite as good as usual.

We had a 5:30 reservation, and we needed to be out for a show by 8pm. We basically had to speed walk a few blocks down the street to make it to the theatre on time. It really shouldn't take this long to get people out to the theatre. I don't mind a leisurely dinner that lasts a long time, but I think two hours is more than enough time for a restaurant to serve 3 courses.

The food was quite good, although my wife's pork was served under-temperature, and the spaetzle were overdone -- no, they were not simply cajun style. But since we had a $50 GC, it was a very reasonable meal.

I do enjoy their extensive niagara wine list. I appreciate it when restaurants support local businesses.

I had the most amazing experience at this establishment. The food was absolutely delicious and the Chef Jason Dobbie came out at one point and introduced and welcomed us to his restaurant. Jason was very professional and welcoming, I would recommend Zee's grill to anyone

We travel approximately 55 kms from home to Niagara on the Lake, purely for the Poutine at Zee's Grill. It is a wonderful restuarant. We are never disappointed . Great ambience and great food. Also our server , just recently, was Paula Jane. She was extremely pleasant and made our visit even more special.Please don,t change a thing and we'll keep coming back.

Went for lunch as part of a theater trip to Niagara on the Lake.Booked Zee's because it looked like good food in a relaxed atmosphere. Ate on the deck, which we would definitely recommend. Lovely. We both had appetizer salads: 1 X watermelon and strawberry and 1 X smoked salmon and beet. Strawberry was very good, but the smoked salmon and beet was terrific. Would definitely order again. We also enjoyed the mushroom soup - very hearty. And we shared a delicious cheesecake for dessert. Excellent service too, Angela was very professional and appropriately attentive. The play itself was okay, but the lunch really made the day (especially after a 25 km bike ride from Niagara Falls to get there).
