This unique and lovely spot overlooks the Niagara River, Lake Ontario, Fort Niagara and myriad yachts, but the management overlooks nothing. Our lunch-dinner yesterday included an absolutely delicious Greek chicken with spinach and feta, buried in the menu in such a way that it appeared, wrongly, as if the only reason to order it was that it was good for you. Also on our fare -- a turkey burger, with a choice of cheeses and exactly the right amount of fries. Soda came by the bottle and the iced-tea glass just seemed to refill itself, so smooth and prompt was the service. (Probably didn't tip her enough). While not a diner by dictionary definition -- that is, manufactured elsewhere, trucked in, like those gleaming chrome '50s models -- it has every other attribute in service, friendliness and affordability. Not open for dinner on weekends, can't figure out why this is, but we memorize the schedule and make do as often as we can, often the turnaround point on a 30-mile trip from home... fyi our bill, including tax and two non-alcholic drinks, was $22-something.
