We were about 2 hours from home, but heard good things about The Shores, and we were nearby, so we stopped in. It was a good decision because the food was excellent. We started with the spinach dip and steamed clams as appetizers, and finished with the grilled salmon, battered shrimp and a cheeseburger. With coffee and 2 drinks and... More

Yesterday, August 2nd, I got married at the Shores Waterfront. The scenery and backdrop is spectacular. I am very satisfied on how the ceremony went off. However, once inside, the catered lunch was nothing like we discussed with the owner. I started to realize that there wasn't full disclosure on the service we would expect. I am disabled and in...

I have been there before for cocktails and music and it was nice, but this time we took my mother to The Shores for her birthday lunch and it was very disappointing. The location is great and it has a terrific view, but that is all The Shores has to offer. My sister had a piece of plastic in her... More

Recently stopped here on a whim for lunch. Beautiful setting overlooking the Niagara River. I looked at the menu and was really surprised how expensive everything was - even the cheapest burger is 11 bucks. I ordered what the menu says are "Sea scallops" - they definitely were not - these were very small bay scallops enclosed in a an... More

If you like viewing the water and listening to great live music this is the place for you! It is right on the river with a Tiki Bar and a Bandstand. It features live music almost every night. It is not a fancy place but being on the water is fabulous!
