The Old Bank Bistro is our 'go-to' restaurant in Fort Erie - always a good meal and very consistent with service and quality. Servers are the best, they know us as return customers and always provide excellent service and conversation. You can't go wrong with ordering a steak or the Lake Erie perch, two of our favorite meals. A break... More

Restaraunt is well laid out with a bar room and separate eating areas, one being like a closed in street cafe, complete with lamp posts and phone booth. Great back room area for large groups or a more cozy dinning experience. Great seafood and steak dishes at reasonable prices. A great place for a unique dinning experience.

We went for the "" Date night. "" You pick from a specific menu. Get a local bottle of wine and a shared desert. My food was the same as you would order at the food court in a mall. We were not impressed. Sad thing is we went the year before and the waitress forgot to order our apps.... More

We went in for a late lunch / early dinner and it was a great choice. We had a look at the dinner menu, (prices are kinda high), and then the very helpful waitress came over and suggested we could still order lunch, (for 1/3 the price of dinner). What a great suggestion, and she really didn't have to do... More

Had a fantastic time last night with family and friends in downtown Ft Erie. The "Bank" as it is known to locals left us with the feeling we could not wait until our next visit. The building itself is worth a look see. Tables and booths are both there for you to enjoy your meal. Lots of space. Can take... More

First time here and ordered the Souvaki Dinner and it was excellent. The table shared some apps I liked the bruscetta bread in particular. The service was great and the Faux patio was a nice touch for the atmosphere. Will return on my next visit to Fort Erie
