Absolutely terrible place to go on a Friday or Saturday night. Long wait to get in the door, no space once you're in the door and then another long wait to get an over priced drink. This bar caters to students in the Niagara area so not a place to go if you're looking for a quite, quaint bar on... More

Step back in time around the Bar!! I've had the luxury of visiting many "olde" Pubs in Ireland and England (and other countries), but the Mansion House always feels like home! Some modern updates (washrooms for one), plus Great Food make the Mansion House a Go To spot..... New to town? The Mansion House is like anywhere you go in... More

I stopped in with a colleague who knew of Mansion House for a quick business lunch - was expecting ho-hum pub grub but got way more than that! We ordered the bacon cheeseburger and the Bermuda sandwich and were very impressed with both. I was told they make the burgers fresh in-house and it certainly tasted like it. The fries... More

I never used to think about food at The Mansion, great party place! But it turns out their food is pretty awesome too! Tonight I had the burger - huge, couldn't finish it and the fries were great! But I've also has the Chicken club wrap and it's equally yummy. Definitely add it to your 'must try' list when downtown... More

If you want fancy this is not your place but the building has charm. It is a St. Catharines institution and popular with the business crowd. I have only been to the Mansion House lately for lunch. The service is great. Food is excellent quality and value although the menu is not extensive. Probably not a place for you if... More

Food is good, beer is reasonable... this place is like a corner bar out of the 60's or 70's which adds to it's charm. Jazz on certain nights. This is a St. Catharines tradition. A historical landmark.

I used to love this place to go for a fun night out. But the owners and bouncers have always left a lot to be done for customer service . The bouncers act like a bunch of neanderthals. I was there on grape and wine and will never go back due to a terrible experience and personally would love to... More

My family and I have been going to the Mansion House for years after the annual Grape and Wine Pararde in Sept. This year was no different. This year may be our last. They failed to put up the huge tented area, so there was no relief from the sun. Food was only available for purchase for a short while,... More
