The food was fine and the gift shop has a great selection. We would have done the majority of our souvenir shopping there. But although we walked in to a shop with three open signs in the window and doors propped open, after ten minutes of shopping we were told that they had already counted the register and we would...

We were looking for a low key place to have some lunch and this fit the bill. The food was good, the service was good and the price was reasonable. We would go back.

I got the Canadian Grill as my main course, and my wife ate quiche. We were both satisfied with the amount and quality of our food, but the view of Niagara Falls took the prize. This has to be one of the best places to visit while at the falls.

We stopped for dinner on the patio, and enjoyed the great view of the falls and quiet atmosphere. The food was average - nothing special (burgers, fries) but a welcome opportunity to relax after a busy day. Good peach/mango bellini, and my husband enjoyed a local beer. I would give it a 3.5 star if that was an option! Nice... More

This was our first trip to Niagara Falls, Ontario. We walked across the Rainbow Bridge and this was one of the first restaurants we saw. The menu looked good and the outside and inside dining areas looked comfortable and clean. So, we gave it a try... The service was slow. Workers stood around talking at the cash register, not noticing... More

The Falls view is the best part of this restaurant, we (four in our group) felt the food was average service just good and the dining area felt like a cafeteria.

This was recommended by the girl who checked us in with our WeGo Pass/Adventure Plus pass. Great spot to eat, pretty views. Glad we went. Food was delicious.

Our family ate here 10 July 2016. The fish and chips were extremely greasy and 3/4ths breading. The grilled chicken sandwich was dry and burned black. The BLT was greasy. All our fries were extremely greasy. The only edible meal was the kid's grilled cheese. The waitress was unresponsive - she even brought the bill late. Prices are high; even... More

Cheap food at high prices. We paid $60 for 3 chicken burgers, which were pink inside, and nothing special, overall. Waiter didn't ask how the food was. I guess he knew. The location is perfect but the cheap décor (see the washroom inside the store) should be the first indicator. It is one of those places where you know that... More

I found this little gem on my second day in Niagara Falls. Tasty and affordable cafe for breakfast, certainly compared with my hotel. Lovely view of the gardens and the American Falls in the distance
