We enjoyed a lovely lunch on the covered patio. Our server Jenn was outstanding in helping us with our entree choice and the meal service. The calamari was excellent. The salmon burger was uniquely breaded like a crab cake and was delicious. A truly wonderful dining experience that will be a must go to upon a return to Niagara on the Lake.

The restaurant was very busy as it was lunch just before the matinee show. The food waa really good and the service was good at the beginning and end but scarce between. We would return and overall very good.

Wonderful selection of luncheon foods. Had the open face salmon sandwich and my friend had the turkey sandwich. She had her left hand in a cast-like apparatus and needed something that could easily be held with one hand. Our server, Jacob, recommended her sandwich. Service was excellent and we had a great table located on the porch, out of the sun and we could watch the action on the main street. It was very busy but sound was at a minimum. This was our 3rd year eating at Zee's and look forward to returning again next year.

Excellent, as always. Service was impeccable. Food was served piping hot. Salmon Duo with different coloured carrots. The presentation was appetizing. The Death By Chocolate was heavenly.

A beautiful night to sit on the covered porch. Attentive service. Good menu choices and well-prepared food. Northern Lights cocktail was particularly creative. Enjoyed the salmon croquettes app. Third time there over the last 5 or 6 years. Always a good experience.

Enjoyed our meal at Zees Grill before heading to the theatre - great location! My only regret was that we didn't get an outdoor table on the porch - it was full.

Weston was on of the best servers I’ve ever had. He was pleasant and was able to describe the dishes clearly. His recommendations met our expectations. I look forward to dinning at Zees Grill again in the near future.

Beautiful location (try and sit on the enclosed patio with open windows to the outside) and very quick and attentive service. Food was excellent but the caesar salad app (at $14) could have been much bigger and the fries as a side to the entree also should have been more than what was served.

In my 3 visits this year, I was able to sit in the outdoor areas, where it was quiet and...serene! In past visits where I had to be indoors, the noise level was fine, but I found it a little too dark, of all things!
Sometimes the food choices are a little too esoteric for my taste, but this year I had no problem finding dinners to order... loooove the watermelon gazpacho ! Am looking forward to visiting next season!

We order a Caesar salad but it never arrived. Meals arrived..they were ok but we eat here fairly often and the
Menu hasn’t changed in quite some time. Not sure if we will be going back again.

The location near the Festival Theater makes it perfect for dinner before performance. Atmosphere was enjoyable (inside) and waiter was attentive and efficient. We had mixed results with our meals. One was excellent and the other disappointing. Short rib is a favorite of ours, but this was sized for 2+ people and still on the arched bone. Meat was tough, not fork tender and a struggle to get off the bone. While the presentation was impressive, taste and ease of eating are more important in our book. Zee's comped the wine for that person, but given the character of restaurant and menu the meal mishap should not have happened. Cautious recommendation from us.
