Good breakfast but don't ask for glass of water!

We were a group of 7 on a busy morning. We were seated reasonably fast. Buffet has a good selection with some Greek specials. Very busy so the food is fresh. But don't ask for a glass of water since they only have bottles. I didn't think that restaurants were allowed to do this. I believe they make... read more

First I'll say that our waitress was wonderful! She was so nice and made sure that we had our drinks and that everyone was okay. I forgot her name but she looked Japanese and she was working in the section to the right of the front door by the windows on Sunday, March 15, 2015. The service was perfect! But... More

Medicre buffet, but for $6.99 what do you expect. The big surprise is that they uncoincidentally leave the prices of the drinks off of the table, the glass of chocolate milk goes for a whopping $3.99...to add insult to injury, they don't even provide take-out cups. I questioned the manager about this, and he rifled off several petty excuses: 1.... More

This buffet has what you would expect from a breakfast buffet. Items were OK. The French toast and omelets were excellent. The refilled the items several times while we were there. We were shocked you could not order a glass of water, but had to buy a bottle. Will not be forced to buy water, so did not have a... More

When I went there, it took over half an hour to get a table even though no one was in there. Couldn't get a server to get us drinks, and when we did they did get our drinks it cost 5 dollars. Also this dumb bus boy walked over to our table, after I saw him pick his teeth, and... More

We took a long time looking for a good value for a quick breakfast restaurant in Niagara Falls. Everything was so expensive. We went with 7 adults and 2 kids. The bill came to $98, which, in my opinion, is very reasonable for Niagara Falls. It definitely wasn't the most amazing breakfast we have had, but it was good value... More

DO NOT GO HERE! We arrived before noon and had the breakfast buffet which was disgusting! Food was not fresh and had been sitting for quite some time and not refilled with fresh food, pancakes were hard and stiff and disgusting. Asked for a glass of water for my 6 year old son and they brought out water in a... More

Got here at 1240 for a meal - didn't know you could only get breakfast. Asked for a water and was told I could only buy bottled water at $2. 95. So I clarified by asking "so I can't have a glass and tap water"? I was told no I must buy bottled there was no choice. Are you kidding... More

We called in here for lunch whilst walking around downtown Niagara and were satisfied with the food,plenty to eat and a decent choice but set in a cafeteria type ambiance. It is inexpensive and worth the money but not for the discerning diner. Worth a try once.
