Wanting to get away from the crowds at the falls we stumbled on this place. Excellent food. Don't let the old building or its location keep you from enjoying an excellent meal. Friendly service. Great selection. Chicken Parmesan was wonderful! My wife enjoyed the roast pork. Family run place that really strives for excellence. So happy we found this gem.

We normally drive past Niagara Falls on our way home. This evening we looked for a place to stop. Kobans popped up so we gave it a try. Good good, good service, good portions. Unpretentious, friendly staff & clients. The pierogi were the best I've had. It was St. Patrick's Day so my husband had the corned beef & cabbage-----lean... More

This was our first visit. My father had recommended it a few times. The whole experience was excellent. The food was delicious. Our waitress was friendly and made the visit fun. Will visit again. 😀

I brought friends from out of town here because one wanted steak. This place has been around for years! The look of the place has not changed over the years, but it is fairly understated so though not new and hip it is not run down or tacky looking inside. I do love the old wooden bar up front. So...

The best steak we have had in years. Simple restuarant and menu. Staff could not had been more friendly. As visitors to the area we wanted to eat local and this was worth the drive

My husband and 2 children went there for dinner on a Sunday night after a long day at Niagra Falls Park, visiting from Wisconsin. It was not busy. We were quickly seated and got our meals in a timely manner. The food is reasonably priced for all that comes with it and also tasted good. We had their sirloin steaks,... More

Scary location, last time I tried to eat there they were closed, thought i would give them another shot on a Sunday night. They specialize in perogies - which were bland-. asked for no onion and they ended up servings the with onions. Spaghetti Parmigiana was fine- although took awhile to get served- place was pretty slow. service was ok,... More

My girlfriend and I were on a trip to the buffalo area and we decided to find a bite to eat, we saw some reviews for this place and decided it looked good. Let me get the one negative out of the way, it's not in the nicest area. That being said, however, I would go again in a heartbeat,... More

I've been coming here many years, and it's always been one of my favorites. The steak is always cooked exactly how I like it, and they serve some of the best French Onion soup I've ever had. Any visitor or resident of Niagara Falls should come here.
