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!

We had the stuffed cod and Tilapia here with a margarita and enjoyed the sunset on the Niagara River.

My friend and I had a very enjoyable lunch at The Shores.The restaurant is located at the southern tip of Tonawanda Island so you definitely get a good view of the Niagara. It was a warm day so we sat outside. Our server was attentive (but not overbearing) and pleasant. The food we ordered was tasty (if a bit pricey).

I had dinner with 5 other business associates during the week. The weather was overcast but very warm. The views of the Niagara River were excellent. We were seated when we walked up. Our server was prompt and gave us the dinner specials. We ended up ordering 4 out of 5 from the menu. The 3 Crab Cake dinners were... More
