I wanted to like this place. But nope, I couldn't. It was packed. And hot. I don't think there was any air conditioning. There were crazy lineups to get the food, which was not even just ok. The fruit was canned fruit they opened and dumped in a big bowl. And the customers all around me were loud and obnoxious....like... More

Food is subjective. What tastes good to me may not be to your liking Food prepared in Canada may taste different to one used to American (or regional) tasting food Having said that, instead of walking down to a place I remember on Clifton Hill, I stopped here. I should have asked to look at the buffet first. There was... More

Have been walking past this place for years, our dinner plans didn't work out last night..so we thought give it a try...must be good...wrong answer. Should have walked the extra mile and went to the Grand Buffet at the Fallsview Casino, it's always good. I think the only food Al Macs prepared were the Hamburgers & Hot Dogs they grilled.... More

This buffet has overworked staff and rude management. Food was subpar and to top it off tables do NOT receive glasses of (tap) water complimentary (even in the Niagra summer heat!). Bottles are 3$ and when asked about it the manager said that since it's a buffet service they do have to serve water free of charge, even if we... More

The food buffet is cheap but be aware that water is bottled and you pay for it and any beverages are additional. Our bill ended up being $25.

Went for the all you can eat breakfast buffet and was very disappointed. It was poorly cooked and over cooked. The food and the waitress were both cold.

So.. hubby and I came for a romantic getaway to Niagara. This place looked beautiful from the outside and, we'd driven past many, many times. Huge line up when we got here so must be good right? No seating inside so they said there were a few wasps but if we wanted to sit on the patio we could sounded... More

The notion of an all inclusive breakfast appealed as it afforded good choice, especially with young children, the food was average and copious and service was good. The drinks were expensive and there could be more transparency with pricing. Perhaps 10 dollars including drinks would be a better policy.
