“I love this mall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Walden Galleria Mall is the perfect place to shop when visiting Buffalo. Had all the stores the kids wanted, except a toy store. Johnny Rockets was tasty and fun for everyone. A rainy day well spent on the road. Special thanks to the citizens of Buffalo who didn't so much as give a sideways look for wearing our Bruins jerseys on this trip.

“disappointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

After all the hype and talk about how great this mall was, we deliberately made it a point of driving 90+ minutes to visit this mall.

What a disappointment and waste of our time. We can respect a "smoke-free" environment however smokers are paying customers too - and big signs indicating that smoking is not allowed anywhere on the property is more of a negative image than all of the smoke butts outside each exit/entrance.

We visited mid week during the day and although the majority of the mall was empty, it was clear that the premium parking spaces were being used by the mall employees.

There appeared to be no logic store layout unlike most organized malls and plazas. Food kiosks and or restaurants were equally scattered and not in a "food court" layout where customers could review available options and choose accordingly...

Disappointed by entire visit and will not recommend this mall to anyone. if this is the best of upstate NY, then drive the short distance to McKinley Mall.

“Not bad, nice and helpful staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Once of the striking things about the USA is the helpfulness of the staff. They sure know about good service and this is what we received when we visited the Walden Galleria Mall. The shops are lovely and the merchandise good. Don;s expect cheap good, but if you can nab a sale or two from Macey's or one of the nice dress shops, you are doing well. Food court is fine. For cheaper goods, try our favorite in Niagara Falls, New York - the Fashion Outlet Mall on Military road. Overall, not a bad mall.

“Just an average mall”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Went there on the Victoria day long weekend and its just another mall. The benefit to my fellow brother in Canada would be there is variety.

The food court wasn't good and with limited choices may be because some parts were under renovation.

“A good mall but no good deals this time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Just okay but looked elsewhere to do my majority shopping. Now it is getting more expensive. Found a few travelers saying the same thing. Might consider grove city next time on holiday. Sure it is a holiday.
