Located in Port Dalhousie, the restaurant sits on the foot of Twelve Mile Creek and Lake Ontario, offering beautiful views from the restaurant and terrace. Treadwell's "Farm-to-Table" philosophy allows Chef-Owner Stephen Treadwell to showcase the very best of seasonal produce from Niagara and Southwestern Ontario. The wine list, created by Sommelier-Owner James Treadwell, is often regarded as Canada's finest for Ontario wines.

Treadwell Farm to Table Cuisine reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Treadwells delivers... every time

    Dined on 8/25/2013
    We just love Treadwells.... this time, our server's father owned on the local wineries. Last time, another server's parents owned the tomato farm where the heirloom tomatoes came from. Treadwells is one of our favourite restaurants in Canada. I know that is quite a statement. They are serious about simplifying outstanding food. The decor is lovely and unpretentious. No jacket required. An abundance of local wines.

    The most amazing meal I've ever eaten! Complimentary rhubarb foam, complimentary home-made breads (they brought us a second bread board as we went through the first one embarrassingly fast), complimentary macaroons with your coffee! So incredible, three attentive servers who were knowledgeable about the foods, where they came from etc. The farm to table concept is unique and makes you feel good about supporting local growers.

    Seared scallops were a work of art- visually and gastronomically. Service was attentive and unobtrusive and sommelier knowledgeable and helpful. Excellent wine list with welcome focus on Ontario VQA wines. Would have loved to eat outdoors on the patio but strong breeze made this impossible. Too bad patio is not in a more sheltered location.

    Treadwell's is set comfortably beside the water in Port Dalhousie, with calming views of the waterfalls and waterlife floating and flying by as you dine in a tranquil and peaceful setting. Sadly, the restaurant is relocating in June to busier Niagara on the Lake. The appetizers were notable for their local content (ie fresh asparagus picked that morning) and fresh ingredients and variety. For the main course the pork chop (locally raised) wrapped in bacon was outstanding, tender and moist, with the sides of smashed potatoes and local vegetables well created. The trout was also fresh and tender, with local vegetables as sides as well. The quiet ambience, with the water as a background creates a comfortable setting for a relaxed evening.

    Treadwell's is always a reliable spot for that special occasion. James Treadwell is involved in all facets of the business (including a personal confirmation call) to ensure the restaurant's standards are maintained. Local inputs, including the top flight wines, result in freshness and quality.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIP
    Dined on 5/12/2013
    ... which this city desperately needs. Farm to table in every sense of the word - Food was first rate, fresh, of the highest quality, imaginatively presented. Service, even on Mother's Day was smooth and coordinated. As with the best restaurants, served by a team not an individual server. Ambience - well it is Port Dalhousie. But right on the canal - one couldn't ask for a better spot. It's really too bad it can't last. A shame really.

    We enjoyed Spring dining al fresco beside the water. The food preparation was at a high european gourmet level, along with excellent wine suggestions, and attentive service. The atmosphere was enhanced with 1950s/1960s jazz recordings played at a correctly soft volume.

  • First Time Diners
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 5/5/2013
    We recently had brunch at Treadwell and very much enjoyed the food. The menu was full of unique options made with the best local ingredients. I enjoyed reading through the wine list and could tell the owner has a passion for sourcing local wines. However, the place opened at 12:00 pm (which is when I made my reservation) and we were the only ones in the restaurant until 1pm. It is a little odd to be the only ones dining; hurts the ambiance. The waitress disappeared (likely to not seem hovering) and the food took a little longer than expected. And my latte was lukewarm, which has not been my experience at similar establishments. The location is very nice, right on the water, but were told they are moving in July. May try dinner.

    We were on our way to see a matinee at the Shaw festival in NotL, when we decided to visit Treadwell's for a bit of lunch on our way in. The soup and sandwich featured simple, tasty ingredients brought together for a satisfying meal. A bottle of local reisling (of which there are several on the menu) and the riveside patio seating made for a perfect visit. See you again soon Treadwell!

    It is a shame that Treadwell's is moving out of Port Dalhousie. It has always brought a bit of charm and class (not to mention amazing food options) to the area. I am a particular diner - I like variety, and I enjoy fresh, high quality options. Treadwell's never fails to please my palate. Tonight was no exception. The whitefish was out of this world; my dining partner could not get enough of the lamb. A must.

    We had a group of four and were able to sit in the window and look out at the canal area. The food was so good and fresh. Started out with the proscuitto (spelling?) salad which was awesome. Another person at our table got the seared scallops to start with and they looked really good as well. Our table had the lake Huron white fish, beef cheeks, and another fish dish. All were amazing. The service was excellent, all around great experience.

    My husband and I were visiting St Catharines, and had always wanted to dine at Treadwell. After years and years of walking to Port Dalhousie, and wondering what it would be like..we finally had an opportunity and the time to dine there. From the moment I made the reservation on-line, with ease .. to the second we walked through the front door .. everything was perfect. A warm welcome, a wonderful table, excellent and attentive wait staff .. not to mention, of course, an amazing menu .. It was, to say the least, a very memorable dining experience..one we shall never forget. We definitely will be back again, and will spread the word, about this amazing resturant. Many thanks for an amazing dining experience .. Sincerely, Nancy B

    The wonderful food, lovely homemade pasta and rabbit ragu, and a great wine was slightly offset by the cool ambient temperature. A cold draft hanging at the floor level made me wish for my longjohns and we were not sitting by a window. Other than the cold, this is a great place with a wonderful view, and very romantic with lots of room around tables.

    I had heard from a few friends that Treawells was a good place to go for dinner, and they were right. Not a place I would go too every month (not cheap). but for a special occasion yes. The view was very nice, the food was so flavourful and unique. If your looking for large portions, don't bother going here. Portions and presentation are more on the "fine dinning" side of things.

    Went for lunch to celebrate my wife’s Birthday. Right from the outset the staff were both professional and friendly. Everyone was knowledgeable on all aspects of the menu, wines and cocktails. Most impressive was the fact that they seemed passionate about what they were doing. Then to top it off, the food was excellent. We live in the Niagara region and we dine out frequently. I would have to say this is one of the best restaurants we have experienced.

    On New Year's Eve 4 of us participated in the tasting menu with wine pairings presented for the occasion by Stephen and James Treadwell. The tasting menu consisted of a selection of patron favorites from over the year . The wines were selected by James (sommelier). The co-ordination of presentation of each course (preceded by the pouring and discussion of the accompanying wine pairing) was impressive to behold. Very professional and pleasant serving staff! Stephen continues to prove that he is one of the best chefs in Ontario. We marveled at the taste sensation we enjoyed as we progressed from course to course. Well worth a trip to Niagara!
