Just a magnificent view all around. I haven't dined here, yet, but I'm looking forward to dining at night with the beautiful Falls as my photograph.

Definitely a unique experience, but the food was waaaaay overpriced for how "meh" it was. Also, our server was overly chatty and had some borderline inappropriate comments on political issues (immigration, welfare, etc...).

The view itself is worth a perfect rating but the food is not. We had dinner in the revolving dining room. While it wasn't bad it wasn't memorable either (accept for the bill lol) We didn't care, we were there for the view and we had to eat anyway. I would return.

This is the best way to see the falls and the surroundings. I have also submitted a picture I took from this tower. If you go to Niagara Falls, you must do this.

Didn't get a chance to go into this place but saw it from a distance at night and was colorful. I believe it has a restaurant at the top or close to the top.

If you want a really great view of Niagara Falls you got to try Skylon Tower. The view is breath taking. You get to see ALL of the falls. Mostly everyday i saw a rainbow.

Well worth the lift ride to view the 360 degree view at the top. However be careful of the photo taking at the beginning as they are very expensive to purchase!

This was my second trip up the Skylon Tower. It was just as magnificent as the first time. The views are absolutely beautiful. I love that the dining floor rotates slowly so you can see the surrounding area as well as the falls. I would recommend calling ahead for reservations, as they seem to be rather busy each time I...

I took a "Father/Daughters" trip with my 75 year old dad this year, and this was one of the highlights of the trip! The view was spectacular, the food delicious and the service outstanding. I would definitely recommend this while visiting the Falls!

This is an old tower, not much to see once you get up there, but definitely worth the visit. There's an outside viewing area where you can get AMAZING pictures of both Falls. There's a raggedy gift shop up there; save your money - there's finds elsewhere. :) We were there on a freezing day (20 degrees F), but still... More
