It's a trap!!!

It is true that you get what you pay for. My family certainly fell victim to it (my fault). We went to Almacs because we saw a buffet price that seemed very reasonable given that we were in Niagara Falls. It was also rather busy, and we did not feel like paying $15 each for a basic breakfast at... read more

Shame on you! I read the other reviews on this place so I basically cannot add anything further. Just keep reading and you will get a sense of what this place is all about. It is certainly a black eye on Niagara Falls.

We were so excited to go to a buffet for breakfast, we had never been in the past. We are residents of Niagara falls and we pass by this place everyday, thought it was worth a try, it looked fancy and looked like fun. Were we ever wrong. Walked in and were greeted by a waitress with "just a minute".... More

You cannot get a glass of water! You have to buy a bottle of water. Food selection very limited. Greasiest bacon and sausage I have ever eaten. I left hungry because most of the food was not good. Very hot inside, I doubt the air conditioning works. Do not be sucked in by the price, the drink prices make up... More

I noticed people were coming in to eat and not ordering a drink with their meal which I thought was strange. When I got my meal after having ordered them I realized why. The food was ok nothing to brag about. The fried Greek dessert literally had oil dripping out of them. Nothing had labels and every time I asked... More

It's too bad I can't give this place a -5 review. Good is horrible but the staff is pleasant. Came here because $17 dinner buffet sounded promising.. It should be a $5 buffet.. Most unappetizing food I've ever seen.. Same your money and go to McDonalds.

First off, we are local not tourist so we have been here quite a few times, however this well be our last. We came in last night after the Saint Paul Grade 12 grade, there were 5 adults and a 20 month old toddler. Please keep in mind we arrived just after 10pm so the place was pretty empty with... More

We ate here one morning. They offer a cheap buffet price but will not provide you with a glass of water. All drinks are $4.00 and there are no refills. Drinks are also very small in size. Basically it is a trap that avoids telling you the real price of the buffet. The food was nothing spectacular and service was... More

Arrived late and my friend and I were hungry so stopped in to eat. Food was cool and very little choice left of main dishes. Other items not too appetizing Only chicken was passable but still too cold. Then asked for water and told none but could buy it. Had PEPSI. After deciding we had enough -dessert was a few... More

Limited options, not the best presentation, not very welcoming. Food was mostly tepid. Brunch food options were limited to only half the buffet table even being used. No one attended tables to keep things clean. We won't return.
