A favorite for lunch.

Busy. Good lunch menu. Well liked by people who live or work nearby. Sometimes it's necessary to wait for a table but worth it.

Coal Tower is fantastic food! Whether you are there for breakfast, lunch or dinner, this place is excellent! I usually go there in cooler months fall and winter for comfort food because that is what they excel at! It is very reasonable, they offer great tasting food, and have lots of choices. I have NEVER had anything I didn't like... More

They always have at least a half dozen breakfast specials listed. I am crazy about the cinnamon french toast and also a big fan of their Belgian waffles. Never been there for lunch or dinner.

I've only ever been here for breakfast. Every time I've visited I've had the same experience. Over rated and always jam packed. Decent food, but never thrilled with the service.

My husband and I stopped in for breakfast on a beautiful Sunday morning. We were seated very quickly. There were great specials (cranberry French toast is what I ordered) and lots of standard breakfast fare, including several versions of eggs Benedict. The servings are generous, we ordered way too much food. The eggs with corned beef hash was FABULOUS. we... More

If you want a great breakfast, this is the place! Service is always with a smile & they make you feel so welcome. Plenty of parking. I don't remember a bad meal there but I will always remember their omelette's. Try it, you'll become a regular.

The food was excellent...I had the Monterey chicken sandwich. The restaurant is near the Erie Canal. There is a bike path that can be walked/bicycled for quite some distance...beautiful views!
