We have always had wings here. The wings are better than average and large but certainly are not close to the best wing. We had sandwich's that were big but poor in flavor . Club sandwich was dry and not toasted. One burger under cooked and another over cooked.

The Anchor Bar is delicious, but it's not the only place in Buffalo to enjoy great wings. In fact, most of the menu at Gabriel's Great was very tasty. We started with a couple of types of wings and a side of crispy fries. Then we tried the French onion soup--some of the best I've had. The real MVP of... More

This historic building in Allentown is our to go spot when entertaining out of town guests who we wish to feed Buffalo chicken wings. Consitently excellent. Service has always been good and while the large menu featuring lots of bar food appetizers, salads, dinners and sandwiches, we almost always get their big juicy wings. Far superior to the iconic Anchor... More

Multiple locals said if we wanted great wings in a local (non-tourist) environment go to Gabriel's Gate in the dynamic Allentown neighborhood. I've had lots of good wings over the years but these were a step up. Meaty wings with a balanced sauce and traditional blue cheese dressing, celery and carrot stick were perfect. I ordered my wings extra crispy... More

We found Gabriel's Gate by Googling "best buffalo wings." The search result did not disappoint! The place is small, but packed with loads of character and charm. There is additional patio seating out back. No children's menu here but there are appetizers that will suffice, such as chicken strips. The staff were very friendly. When ordering wings, don't mess around... More

I don't like Buffalo wings -- or rather, I didn't until I had a single order of mild wings here. They were extraordinary: served hot, crisp and not in the least too vinegary. Good service, great wings, odd but interesting decor. What more could you possibly want?

I've been coming here with my family for years. They have good food and I like the pub / lodge feel. My husband and I stopped in the other night for a beer. We sat at the bar and the bartender was very nice. I've always had a pleasant experience here. I'd recommend this restaurant.

When I told my friends I was going to Buffalo and planned on another trip to Anchor Bar, they suggested I try something new and suggested Gabriel's Gate. Very easy to get to from the harbor side and there was plenty of street parking. Interesting "rustic" setting which has a lively bar and plenty servers manning the tables. I started... More

Onion rings were good. The rest of the food was good but not worth a special trip to Buffalo. Had a grilled chicken with provolone cheese and spinach. Large portion but could have used some seasoning. Prices were good. Very old building with animal heads mounted around the room and several carved wooden Indians.
