Ate here twice on our 3 night stay in niagara falls. Staff were efficient, friendly and attentive. Excellent value for money - large portion sizes. Good selection of choices of food. Fresh home cooked style food. Lovely to sit near window and watch the world go by as it were. Would certainly be a regular customer if it wasn't nearly... More

I was a little Leary when we walked in at 8:30 am and were the only customers at a waterfront view to the Falls. The decor is very gift shoppy and the gift store is attached;). There was a great variety for breakfast; eggs, omellettes, French toast, pancakes and all the usual sides. All the food was cooked to order... More

We enjoyed it so much, that we stopped in twice. We had the same waiter each time. We sat on the terrace with a beautiful view. It's a great location. Reasonably priced, good food.

We visited The Secret Garden as part of a bus party and were made to feel very welcome by the staff. The food was delicious and was well priced.

I purchased a Groupon to try this restaurant. The evening we were there, there was no one else seated in the restaurant; there were people sitting outside. There is a fairly nice view of the Falls from the restaurant. The food was adequate; not all menu options were available, so I tried the tilapia, which was a little dry. There... More

In September I visited Niagara Falls for the fifth time in over a 50 year period. I don't know how long this little restaurant has been there, but I only just discovered it this trip. I was on a bus tour and staying at the Sheraton Hotel. Neither our bus tour leader nor the hotel mentioned this place, so the... More

Was a sweet café , the outdoor view was beautiful, quaint. Food was good but not fancy. Clean inside but sitting outside is the best. Was a cool day so we really loved it!

Indoor or outdoor dining in the garden area near the falls. Beautiful view! Ordered a burger and side salad...the burger was terrific...didn't need cheese or anything else to muddy up the flavor. You can choose your side dish. We did a side salad. Salad had lots of crisp fresh veggies and was a great side to offset the density of... More

I am a big fan of diner food, so when I found something like this little cafe I couldn't help but check out. I has a fantastic location, just across from the maid of the mist boat ride. You can also go for a nice walk through the oakes garden theatre next door. They have nice outdoor seating area where... More
