“I expected more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Perhaps it was off-season and a weekday, but I expected more people.
There were some nice restaurants on the Elmwood strip, and it may well be the nicest area in Buffalo. We stayed at a B&B right on the strip and it was a very nice location as it was in walking distance of several museums (at the end of the strip), and the bus through Elmwood strip to downtown is handy and frequent. But as far as shopping or entertainment I cannot give it high points.

“The "Un" Chippawa Party District...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

The Elmwood strip is truely the only place in Buffalo that has a chic urban vibe that you might find in a NY or Chicago. Good restaurants and bars with more of an adult flavor than the degenerate vibe Chippawa has erroded to.
