My friend and I sat down at our table and waited for 20 minutes without menus or drinks - the restaurant was not even half full. My friend went to hostess to check on service for our table. Once we place our order, the waitress brought my friend her tea, with no mug to poor it into and forgot to... More

My boyfriend and I spent two nights at the Lord Nelson for our Anniversary and for one of our dinners we chose to eat at the Victory Arms Pub, attached to the lobby of the hotel. My advice to a potential diner who is staying at the hotel is that no matter how convenient or close this restaurant is to... More

We never did get past the apps menu and ended up sharing 4 apps for our meal. All were great especially the shrimp toast. The hot buffet breakfast is a must especially the omelette station.

The Arms is a lovely pub in the Lord Nelson Hotel across for th Public Gardens. They have great service and drinks. I did not try the food but there is great ambiance. They have a small but very sunny patio to sit and watch people coming and going at the Public Gardens. A nice place to stop and have... More

The breakfast buffet with the self-serve waffle bar is great! We enjoyed lunch as well as dinner there. The seafood chowder is one of the best I've had. All of the main dishes we tried were excellent. My only criticism is that we would have liked an option for a plain salad, however, we didn't ask so we don't know... More

There are so many nice places to eat near here, I suggest you try them first. A late dinner as a Lord Nelson Hotel guest resulted in a poor experience. The Greek salad was fine except the feta was gone in just a couple of bites. After asking for a bit more, they wanted to charge an extra $2. Who... More
