Can't beat the view

Other reviews sum it up. The food/service isn't bad, but it's nothing exceptional. You're really going here for the view, which makes it all worth it.

As many people we went there for lunch to enjoy the view. The staff was very nice and friendly, but the food was terrible. I had rarely eaten such oily, heavy, bad quality food for this price, though it must be quite common in attractions places like this. Even the bruschettas were bad and I did not think it was...

This view is amazing sit down and eat and over look the falls. At $15 or less a plate this place is a tourist meal deal. I've had their beer battered cod and the burgers. Just top notch food. The family ate and all were happy. Gift store down stairs watch out 😂. Have fun at the falls.

We had the fish and chips which were pretty average. Nothing too remarkable. It was pricey, as you would expect in a State Park. My younger son ordered off the kids menu which got him a souvenir cup and the waitress was nice and brought my older son a one too. We didn't ask or expect her to do that.... More

I was not expecting a lot, but it was really good. We spent almost a week at the falls and went from one side to the other a few times. We were tired of walking and decided to give it a try. I believe the meal we ate there was made with the freshest ingredients of any of the meals... More

We thought it would be better than what we had. The fries came out cold, the cheese on our burgers were not melted. Our waiter really never checked on us. Had to search around for ketchup bottles that had ketchup in them. The only thing that is good is the view.

This restaurant was wonderful!!! The food was great. The view was even better! Being able to relax outside and look at the Falls was amazing! The inside view appeared to be great as well. The only down side was the service was slow. However, everyone was super friendly and they were busy. We hit them right at prime lunch time.... More
