A quiet, relaxing place to enjoy lunch or dinner. The view of the falls is fantastic and worth the trip up the Skylon.

Underneath the Skylon tower there is a very old arcade with many ancient games. There's skee-ball and a bunch of variations, plus old fair games and video games. It is really neat to see, but many of the games are out of order. Still, more fun and convenient than Clifton Hill.

Very expensive meal. You are pretty much paying for the view. Rotating restaurant so you will get a 360 view of Niagara which was great. The moving restaurant made me motion sick for the first 10 minutes but I got used to it. The food was not good at all, I hate to write that but it's actually not good... More

We dined at skylon tower and enjoyed the food and obviously the views. We sat down at 9PM on a Friday night so we had perfect view of the fireworks around 10. Considering the view I didn't think the meal was to expensive. The quality was good and the service was really great. Only downside to this restaurant is that... More

The best view of the falls is from Canada and probably from the top of this tower. It was an overcast and cloudy day when we went so we really only got to see the falls and not much else of the area around the falls. We also got discounted tickets since it wasn't the peak tourist season which was... More

Signs everywhere about the rotating restaurant, family friendly, Buffett, etc.! To start - The buffet is only during the day - at night(we had a 7pm reservation)...avg.$ for entrees was $45, apps $18, dessert $12. The only things that seemed priced correctly was the alcohol ( glass of wine was $10/$14...booze $9-11). Our selections were ok, good - but not... More

The ride up in the glass elevator was very smooth and did not take very long to reach the top. We first ate lunch in the revolving dining room. Very cool with great 360 degree views while you eat. We got some decent pictures while eating. The food really is excellent there. Everything we had was very good. The Crème... More

My wife and I went here for an early dinner. We were seated right away. We had made reservations prior. The service was excellent as well as the food. I got steak medallions with Bearnaise and it was tender and delicious. The views were phenomenal and the rotating dining room meant you got a view of the entire city in... More

We enjoyed a fabulous supper and view from the Skylon Tower. We had an outside window seat and saw the sun go down and the lights come on at the falls

It's a little chilly out on the observation deck if you go when it's cold outside, but the view makes up for it. There's a lot of information you can find out about the area as well. On a clear day, you can see other cities, and this makes for great viewing. Don't forget a good camera.
