The Hearth & Vine – Lockport NY

Location: 5949 Campbell Blvd. Lockport, NY  14094

Phone:  716-434-8463

Price: $  10.00

Ambiance: The night I was there the restaurant had just reopen for business and was very busy.  It's a pleasant building and has a large bar area off the side of the dining room.  I am not sure what it's style is, but it offers a friendly atmosphere.  My only complaint is that they are using fold up chairs in the dining room and they were very uncomfortable  they reminded me of chairs used for playing cards.

 

Service: Our service was ok.  Since this was a grand opening weekend I think the service probably suffered a little.  Our waitress was very nice, but our meals came out at different times and they were a bit confused.

Food: They had a happy hour going on that included a appetizer table while we waited for our table to celebrate their grand opening. The appetizers were great including veggies, Swedish meatballs, chicken fingers, quiche etc.

I order their Friday fish fry, and it was ok.  I think the focus of the restaurant is not Fish Fry, and that other items on the menu might be more interesting. It was not served with rye bread and only had one side, coleslaw, that tasted more store bought than homemade.

Recommendation: I would probably go back but I would wait for them to become more established first.
