Great location but terrible food and drink

The location of this restaurant could not be better and the service is good. However the coffee was disgusting and was virtually black water. The apple pie was mostly pastry and the tea not much better. The water was fine and maybe if you choose better you might be lucky !

The most beautiful view overlooking the Falls from the patio! The staff here is incredibly polite, helpful and friendly! The food is delicious and extremely fresh. The gift shop is filled with lovely gifts and the price is right! Honestly, you cannot go wrong here.

We had 2 meals at this restaurant. We discovered it on our 1st day having been to the White Water Walk and thought well have a meal before we get soaked on Hornblower Cruises which is nearby. Cant fault it. Nice surroundings, friendly staff, overlooking the river etc. Didn't think it expensive either. Didn't eat inside as it was warm.... More

This place is very close to the Hornblower Boat ticket office. The WeGo stops almost directly in front of it. We had lunch there our first day and like it so much we came back for breakfast on our last day in Niagara. Food is not fancy but is served quickly, portions are good sized, staff is great. prices are... More

A restaurant with a view. A welcoming restaurant with friendly and informative staff. The menu was varied. The food ordered was promptly delivered and was tasty. One thing they seem to do here in Canada is serve large portions. I couldn't manage to finish my order. Of course the view makes this place unique. Attached to the restaurant is a... More

We visited here while touring Niagara Falls. The location is obviously a big plus here, probably its raison d'être– you can literally sit and enjoy your meal within sight of the falls. The service was very good – our waiter was friendly, had some recommendations, and our food came out very quickly. The food itself was reasonable, but nothing exceptional.... More

We stopped in here on Monday for lunch. It's so cute! Pink walls and flowers and pink water glasses. It looks like a little old lady's dining room. There is a wall lined with colorful tea pots and a table with lifesize characters drinking wine and laughing. The food was quite good. Nothing fancy but a nice lunch that was... More

While pricey, the food was good...$15 for a hamburger, but location and view was top notch. There was also a big gift shop, and ice cream.
