Visiting from PA we found this "restaurants" web page and decided to try it for lunch Arrived to find an empty parking lot with (2) Whistle Pig buildings. One closed for conversion to another restaurant and a smaller building closed. We were later told by a local that they don't open to 6PM and that we were better off that... More

nice try, folks, but the "new" whistle pig suffers so in comparison to the whacky old place that stood here for 50-some years... virtually everything is bland and the prices are extremely high for the market... it strives to re-create a diner atmosphere but generally feels plastic

I am a lifelong Falls resident (which some years abroad for military service) who has been to both the old and new Whistle Pig. I'm kind of surprised by the reviews I've seen on this one, because I still think their food is as good as I remember it. The Whistle Pig maintains most of its classic feel, establishing an... More

I grew up in Niagara Falls and this place has been around for 50 or more years. It was the good to place for hot dogs, ice cream and small kiddie rides for years and it now under new management. The food is not as good as I remember and we were unable to get ice cream as the area... More

Recently reopened, the glamour that was a family destination isn't the same nor updated to warrant a spectacular second coming. The food is on par with an old street fair with a focus on the past that simply misses the mark. The kiddie rides are remembrances of a time gone. The new logo is more reminiscent of an evil pig....it's... More
