A great view of the falls from in the sky but be prepared as their website does not specify nor if you call that there is a set amount you have to spend. My wife and I did dinner elsewhere then had reservations for dessert. Even ordering a bottle of wine doesn't count toward your total as the specified amount... More

Yes, the meals are a bit expensive. But to be able to sit and watch Niagara Falls so high up over the Falls is amazing. Make sure you make reservations or you might be eating dinner at 4pm.. the food was delicious also.

We went to Niagara to see the ice and take photos of the frozen falls. The view from the Skylon Tower is not to be missed. It gives an added and important perspective to the overall falls experience. I loved that we could take photos without having to shoot through glass. We were able to spend as much time as... More

The food is not special, you come for the view. There are by one get one 1/2 off coupons, make sure you use it. The service is ok, the food is not quite OK. The is nothing gourmet about it. The view is probably the best in the Niagara falls. You will see the whole city every hour. We purposely... More

Actually viewing was nice. We bought the package with 3d 4d movie. Directions to the theatre were poor. I can't remember being more disappointed in a movie. About a grade 3 or 4 science project. Native history blanketed in b********t.

So first of all, it's mega expensive really to eat here when you think about it. The meals weren't particularly filling, they were just presented nicely. The rotating restaurant really appealed to us, so we tried it. The staff are absolutely rubbish, look down their noses at you and generally make you feel uncomfortable. We felt like we weren't posh... More

Had the buffet lunch so we didn't have to pay to go up to the top but the buffet for me and my teenage sons was over 100 bucks and the food was nothing to write home about. Had to pay $15 to park and then a woman came to our table and took pics and that was another $15... More

We were staying at the Hilton and took a cab here. This place was a MUST visit on every site you go to on Niagara Falls (Canadian Side), so were were like why not! Another plus there was a groupon, so I guess all the stars were aligned. The restaurant had a nice ambiance, good music and what I didn't... More

We skipped the restaurant as we travelled as a family this time and just went to the observation deck. Had come back for it as the power went out the first time we tried to go. The kids loved it, they were climbing up the wall and wires, it seemed safe enough and no one complained.

The tower is great if you're looking for a great view of the falls. There's nothing much to do, so you do pay a lot but that's a tourist attraction price right? I've never eaten there though. The tower has a great observation deck which is nice, even open in the winter!!
