Me and my wife stopped her for a late lunch. Food was awful. Coleslaw was hot, haddock was under cooked and greasy. My wife's tenders were still frozen in the middle... don't do it...

Stumbled across this place on our way from our hotel in Buffalo to the Niagara Falls State Park. So glad we did - food fantastic, service delightful, definitely the place locals go and out of towners wish they knew about.

As close to home cooking as you can get. Hot water for tea comes in... More

Nothing fancy, not the best decor, but we had good service and the breakfast was all good, just like you would want. The price was good compared to other places we visited in Niagara Falls.
