About the restaurant
Twenty is a casual fine dining wine bar located Downtown St. Catharines, just steps away from the Preforming Arts Centre. We have a small intimate place with a relaxed vibe and a unique menu that includes cocktails, beer, and wine. Our food menu is designed to share, but can also be enjoyed as an al la carte dinner.

Wonderful easy small meal before the movie at The Film House. Our waitress was awesome and no rushing us to leave so we could linger. Perfect!

About the restaurant
People are going to spell our name wrong, and they’re going to question the choice. Simplicity applies to all things, and burgers are not an exception. We get right to the point at HAMBRGR. We give our guests the perfect combination of locally sourced ingredients, a wide selection of craft beer, culinary artistry, and of course, one of the most memorable experiences one can muster in the enriching restaurant culture sweeping over the city.

HOME OF THE 45oz GIANT MARGARITA!

We promise amazing food, great vibes and the best and friendliest service around!

Casual family dining during the day and an exciting night atmosphere during the night!
After 9pm, we transition to a more lively and vibrant atmosphere, akin to a bar/restaurant setting and not suitable for children under 16.

Who says you can’t have a FIESTA in the heart of Niagara Falls?!

One of our founding pillars at White Oaks is our belief in living a healthy, well balanced life. Through every facet of our business at White Oaks Resort & Spa we endeavour to improve human performance whether it involves your body, mind, or even your business and career.

The food was amazing! I have celiacs and I was able to get bone in fried chicken with French fries! Plus corn bread and baked beans. Sooo good and no reaction. My only regret is that I am on vacation and they are not near where I live.

Brazilian Steakhouse
Niagara Falls
About the restaurant
Nestled inside the Hilton Niagara Falls/Fallsview Hotel and Suites, Brasa showcases the flavours and cultural flair of Brazil. Following a "centuries-old" tradition of cooking on an open fire, diners can experience endless cuts of succulent beef, pork, lamb, and chicken carved tableside in the style of authentic Brazilian gauchos. A two-sided disk is used by diners to signal when they’re ready for these sizzling skewers: green means "More, please!" and red means "I've had enough, for now." Eat as much as you want and at your own pace.

If your desired reservation time is booked or you're looking for any special request, please contact the restaurant directly.

We booked an early dinner time and saved $10 per person, this was nice. The cuts of meat were great and since we were there so early they were coming non stop. Almost too fast😂 The pineapple is something I think we will be dreaming about for a long time. Service was good and ambiance was nice. It is not cheap but when you consider that you would be spending at least $50 per person at a steakhouse it is definitely worth it to have all of that variety and as much as you can eat. I would highly recommend it!

It was nice to be able to book a larger group online. The restaurant is cozy but has a very chill vibe. They were accommodating, the music was good, the food was good, and prices reasonable. It was a great first experience for our family.
