I was nervous about the elevator ride, but it was extremely smooth and we went back again later that night! I got the best pictures during the day, but it's beautiful to see at night also. Our only mistake was not eating at the top floor restaurant--a little pricey, but we should have done it.

The view from the observation deck was excellent. Breath taking. Great spot to take pictures. Can see both the American and Canadian Falls from here and around the city.

The best views ever in this town! Must visit but combine it with lunch or dinner in the rotating restaurant, you get a free ride up. The observation deck is very good safe and offers the best views!

Honestly I would suggest skipping this and the other Falls attractions and spend your money on a airplane ride of the Falls. A relaxing 30 minute ride with awesome photo opps and information from your pilot.

Cant beat the views from the Skylon and the price is not exorbitant. As soon as I purchased my tickets at the booth outside I realised I had a discount coupon. The man at the desk either couldnt or wouldnt do anything about it but the ladies at the main desk inside were more helpful and cancelled my original transaction... More

We did is at night when the falls were lit up. It was a great way to see the falls and the city. It was a long wait to get down however (we went up within 5 minutes). Also, unlike the boat tour, buying tickets online saves you no time as you have to get tickets printed at the desk... More

We celebrated my wife's birthday with dinner in this wonderful restaurant. It was surprising that a restaurant in a touristy area would have such good food, service and atmosphere. (But you would expect it for the price) They brought my wife's desert with a candle in it and were very attentive to us. Great views of the area and of... More

Without any doubt the Skylon Buffet Restaurant has an incredible view. The restaurant space is adequate without feeling too cramped. I have read the 'poor' and 'terrible' reviews for this restaurant and mostly the concerns are to do with comparisons. There is only so much you can do 775 feet up in the air. I found the buffet food to... More

Took my teen daughter and nephew for a 'fancy' dinner. We sat in the tower and got the full panoramic view of Niagara Falls as we ate. We dressed up and treated it like a big night out. The kids said it was the best (and fanciest) meal they ever had. It is very expensive, but worth it as a... More

Young Server was wonderful. Apologised often for quality of food. It was inedible. The chicken was dry, the curry obviously commercial and poor quality. 3 of 4 plates returned. Fourth was a salad. table next to us returned their meals as well. Just awful Don't order a meal just have dessert and coffee The pastry chef is excellent. I wouldn't... More
