Worst place to eat in Niagara falls. Manager was yelling at staff in front of customers and when we gad a complaint she starded to yell at us and we had to tell her to calm down. Food was cold but tasty. Sugar can mask anything frozen and unfresh. Big tourist trap. Do not go here. It might seem like... More

buffet is gross and cold. Mostly starches like frozen tator tots. Gross. They don't serve tap water. You have to buy bottle water for $3. Service is very rude as well.

Terrible is being too kind!!! everything is cold, except for the orange juice which ironically was warm!!!! The worst place for breakfast. The service was okay, but the food is just terrible. Breakfast buffet where your toast is cold and burned. Eggs, at least that's what that gook looked like, was a mess of yellow thingy and cold. The sausages... More

On the Monday night I went the buffet featured: chicken legs/thighs, ribs, hamburgers and bbq pork cutlets. The beef cuts were drowning in gravy and looked to have been sitting for a while. Chocolate ice cream, nanaimo bars and brownies were desert. Good on a budget.

Yes this buffet is very small but rich in service. They have good food. My wife and I had a good time in this buffet. This was our second visit to this buffet. We visited there last year November and again this year August. We will always stop at this buffet when visiting the Niagara Falls, Ontario side at anytime.... More

The price is cheap that's the only benefit. Good after a hangover if you don't plan on eating much. It's all you can eat breakfast but there's not much variety. Also the service for our drinks and bill took way to long.

Food mediocre... Greasy and buffet had to be shared with flies. What is worse, is that you have to pay for water!,, Sangria Pitcher was 3/4 full of ice and no wine for $20. Avoid. Bad choice! Of all the tourist traps in Niagara, that is still the worst.

When you go to Niagara Falls, you kind of know you're gonna get jammed by some awful tourist trap eatery. Usually you get overcharged for decent food...in the case of Al Mac's we were overcharged for the crappiest, crap buffet we have ever had the displeasure of patronizing. On the plus side, the food was edible....well, most of it. Imagine... More

All Niagara Fall restaurants charged premium price; this place charged breakfast $6.99 and dinner $16.99. Furthermore, most of hotels did not offer the complimentary breakfast. It could be a place for breakfast buffet. Here is a "Big" catch, the drink was not included, they did not even serve any tap water. Each bottle of water was $2.99, the ice tea... More
