Don't be fooled by the posted prices

This buffet is hot and refreshed regularly. there isn't much special about it. There really isn't much more offered than would be offered at most hotel breakfasts. $6.95 is a good deal until you order a soft drink which is almost $4.00 or a coffee which comes in a VERY small cup almost $3.

Food was good and hot. Can't believe they will not serve a glass of water, have to buy a bottle. Good price for meal but drinks are expensive.

All over town, there are signs and posters for a family buffet at the Skylon. We visited that buffet only to find that it is seasonal. (It's a pity the posters don't tell you this.) That restaurant was offering an a la carte service only, and its prices were way beyond our means. We found a tourist brochure that contained... More

Lots of poor reviews on here. We've been here on two occasions, you get what you pay for! Ok, drinks are a little overpriced, but thats what they do to keep the price of the buffet down. If you don't want to pay $3.00 for a drink, take your own bottle of water and drink it in the car before... More

Soft drink costs about half of the price of your buffet. They do not serve free water, you have to buy it for 3 dollars. Buffet was a disappointment. Will not go back.

Took my family for dinner. Service was HORRIBLE FOOD WAS HORRIBLE. We complained that the pizza was rock hard and the manager gave us attitude. Cost me 71.99 for my 4 year old and two 14 year old girls to eat. My husband and I could not stomach the food. Absolute disgusting service. Would not return !!!!

In Niagara for the day for some sight seeing and to meet up with a friend. Being that we are from the US, I was only able to use my phone when connected to wifi (so I wouldn't get charged international charges). My friend starts to get hungry... It must've been a sign because that's right when we turned the... More

After eating expensive breakfasts in the Niagara Falls ($20 for 4 measly pancakes that didn't even fill me up at IHOP) this was a breath of fresh air. Finally something not overpriced and I could eat as much as I wanted! A tourist's dream! The food was pretty good too. Pancakes, french toast, eggs, tatter tots, hash browns, a big... More

For the money, this is a good breakfast buffet. Most of the food had a decent flavor but if you are going to advertise having omelets, put more than just a sliver of an onion or tomato in the eggs. Hash browns are also terribly overcooked. Great French toast and sausage.

We have lived in Niagara Falls for 3 years and never had gone to Almacs Buffet. Throughout the years we have heard both good and bad reviews. Our out of town family came to visit for Christmas and we wanted to go for brunch somewhere in the city. Almacs was open. Our experience was awesome! We were seated promptly and... More
