“Nice view and you pay for it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Its a nice place and the food is good and the view is great but it is very expensive. Everyone liked their food. With a moderate priced bottle of wine with tip and taxes for a family of four was about $350. Breakfest was also expensive with a $20/person buffet.

“Does NOT offer a "Falls View". Great food though.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

We stayed at the Marriott for three nights during our Niagara Falls stay. We ate at the Terrapin Grill one evening instead of leaving the hotel. It was great food and for Niagara Falls, reasonably priced for what you received. Our only issue- it is NOT falls view dining. It doesn't matter where you sit or stand, you can only see the river not the falls. The trees have grown too tall. But yet, all the literature, pictures shown in the hotel elevators and website, you would think you were eating (or even floating) over the falls. Way too much photoshopping...it is very deceptive. I overheard a couple ask their waiter about the lack of a falls view...and the waiter said "I'm sure you have a lovely view from your room." I'm sure most guests did have a grand view from their room, but that isn't the point. Some will go to this restaurant who aren't staying at the hotel and would be quite let down (and even perhaps annoyed) at the false advertising.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We ate here every night. Stick with the house specials. Pricey!
Buffet breakfast here each morning was more than adequate. my son enjoyed the made to order omelets and there was plenty of fresh fruit, yogurt, waffle station, pastries etc.

“Good food, but overpriced and oversold”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

The pictures of the restaurant would suggest a fantastic view of the falls.........the photographer must have been standing on a table, on tip-toes, with the camera over his head.

Food and service was very good, but when you are paying double rates, you expect the view
