Throughout the pandemic restaurants have had to make a lot of adjustments to accommodate the ongoing restrictions on indoor dining. When the weather was warm, we were able to enjoy a nice meal and drink on the patio, but now that the temperature is dropping that option is not as desirable.
Although the brave few will bundle up to bring patio season into January, most people are opting to order take-out from their favourite local restaurants. Ordering take-out is the perfect way to continue to support restaurants during these challenging times!
We asked the locals what their go-to spot to order take-out in Niagara is, and here are their answers:
“A spot we love is The Lazy Lizard. They have the best wings I have ever had. The southwest won tons are fantastic. They also have great burritos, burgers and pizzas. You can’t go wrong.” – Glenda McVarish Hall
“Brass Monkey Local is definitely a fav. In a household with different diets, Brass Monkey has something for all of us! Best Pub food around with amazing Vegan and Veg options.” – Sarah Marie Yurkiw
“[We] intend to order from 1954 Bourbon & Smoke. They haven’t had their official opening yet, but we were there just before Christmas and loved the food. Since I want to ensure they survive this shutdown before they even got started, we want to support them.” – Douglas J Steele
Niagara on the lake
“We’ve been ordering from Sandtrap Pub and Grill in NOTL since the pandemic started. I’m a huge fan of their Spicy Fish pizza, and my wife likes their grilled salmon (served on a mixed greens salad).” – Douglas J Steele
“Bella Terra vineyards! They have their delicious charcuterie take-home boxes available for pick-up. It’s the perfect pairing for an at-home wine tasting night.” – Emily Giroux
“I love Johnny Rocco’s. I always get the baked chicken penne and hubby gets spaghetti and meatballs. The Arincini is amazing. Salads and bread are top notch as well. Their food is always fantastic!” – Glenda McVarish Hall
“Gabriele’s catering in Chippawa” – Joanne McRae
“Queen Bean Niagara Falls [for charcuterie and wine]. $35.00 without the wine or $55.00 with the wine.” – Cher A Van Ditelli
“Thorold Fish and chips located at 46 Front St. N. Definitely the best fish and chips family owned very very friendly staff.” – Sami J. Sam
“We love Big Daddy’s Pho in Welland, so many great choices you can’t go wrong but some of our favourites are the fresh rolls, pad Thai, and zengchau fried rice. The soup is also amazing!” – Karen Edwards
Thank you to everyone who gave us these awesome take-out suggestions! It is so important to continue to support local restaurants during these times.
