“Revolving Restaurant was amazing!”
Review of Skylon Tower

Skylon Tower
Ranked #16 of 103 things to do in Niagara Falls
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Our family of 5, kids are 12, 9, and 7, went to the revolving restaurant for dinner.
We went at 4:30 so we were able to take advantage of the early bird special.
We weren't sure if we would have to pay to get to the top, and then be reimbursed, or how it was going to work, but the base of the tower knew of the reservation, so we were shuttled right up!
The restaurant is lovely, and the service was top notch.
The early bird special is Prix Fixe. The kids were all able to eat off the kids menu- 12 and under. They had 3 selections that included dessert. We also had a selection list, (appetizer, main course and dessert) and our dinners were amazing!
We had 3 kids E/B dinners, 2 adult E/B dinners, one 10oz glass of wine, and the bill was $153. BUT we felt it was good value. You need to know that the regular prices for one adult entree are $45-$76- so yes! $153 for 5 people was a GREAT deal.
My husband had the beef tenderloin with bearnaise, and I had the prime rib- both melted like butter in your mouth.
The view from the tower was spectacular. The restaurant turns very slowly and revolves once and hour.
After dinner we went to the observation deck, which was really neat.
We will definitely be back!

We opted to go to the buffet for dinner at the Skylon, and were so happy we did. The food was very good, and we had a front row seat overlooking the falls. Out Waitress was wonderful, as was the service. If I ever go back to Niagara Falls, I will be going back to the Skylon.

Get discount coupon. Its still a little pricey. The elevator ride operator was very monotone and bored with her job. She wouldn't accept four tickets from one person but required each individual to have their own ticket in hand. The view up top was nice however. Apparently if you eat there, the ride is free.

This is probably the only place on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls where you'll find these long-range views. On a reasonably clear day you'll see the Toronto skyline in the distance. Worth doing at least once.
