We had one of the best lunches at the Oban Inn last week. The food was absolutely delicious (we had steak with amazing stacked sliced potatoes - similar to scalloped). The service was excellent as well. I am a Tour Escort and every one of our passengers remarked at how wonderful the service, food and atmosphere was - thank you!

We decided to have lunch at the Oban after reading the lunch menu. I had mussels and a small salad (both very good). My husband had a wrap sandwich with kettle chips. We had a table overlooking a small garden. The service was friendly and helpful. It was a bit expensive but it was a special occasion.

Very spacious comfortable room with great balcony. A lot of dust throughout the room, seemed as it was not occupied for a while. Check in was very rude and not efficient, between the phone and...

Chef Karrie Galvin is obviously a passionate and talented chef. She has created a brand new and exciting menu for the Oban Restaurant's offering for the Fabulicious Dining event currently on at several restaurants in Niagara-on the-Lake. Karrie's menu IS NOT a scaled down promotional version of the regular menu - instead she has created exciting, innovative dishes just bursting... More

There are so many five star restaurants in Niagara on the Lake All of them are expensive. The Oban Inn the way it used to be years ago was wonderful. Now, this new restaurant is expensive and not worth the price.
