Since I started this blog, I have to say that this is the first time that I have found a “hidden gem” restaurant via social media. After trying to create a Twitter list of all of Niagara’s craft beers I was constantly seeing posts from Old Crow Bar & Bistro. So I asked around if any of my friends from Niagara Falls had heard of this restaurant and it came to my understanding that this was new, uncharted territory. So without any hesitation I gathered up the troops and we set off to test out this new up and coming Niagara hot spot.
What a pleasant surprise! Upon entering you get this really rustic yet
modern vibe. The bar, I must say, is a glorious sight and completely supports local craft beers!
On this particular day I was craving a hamburger and thankfully Old Crow Bar & Bistro was filled with amazing options. In fact, the entire table (minus one) ordered burgers. Options ranged from a Bruschetta burger, a Big Texas burger, the crowd favourite Old Crow Forty Creek burger and more. I enjoyed the Old Crow Forty Creek burger, or should I say… I devoured it.
Right off the bat, it featured three of my favourite ingredients: cheese, tomatoes and mushrooms. So in my mind this was a no brainer. It was also slathered in Forty Creek BBQ sauce which is never a bad thing. It came with a side of crisp french fries,which I gathered were hand cut.
I would rate my particular experience at Old Crow Bar & Bistro:
Honestly this place had such an amazing vibe, my #PRatNC friends couldn’t help but discuss how fun this restaurant would be at night and by the looks of it Old Crow Bar & Bistro features live music.
