“Nice View of the Lake”
Reviewed March 20, 2012

The Erie Basin Marina has a great view of Lake Erie, plenty of docks for power/sail boats (and the boaters are friendly). Free parking,a tower you can go up into. The Hatch, a hotdog stand and more, public rest rooms, landing for the Miss Buffalo Boat (that's a good ride) and upscale restaurant, Templeton Landing.
If you dock a boat there, there's security at night to keep out anyone other than boat owners/guests. I enjoy going there.

“Every season has it's beauty at Erie Basin Marina!”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

I love the Erie Basin Marina! The sky is like nowhere else...the water from dark and stormy to irridescent glass reflecting the sun and the walk along the ships, gardens and shore of the Erie Basin Marina any season is Buffalo in her glory. The panoramic view from the light house is worth the walk up the stairs. The skyline-the history-the water-the boating-the gardens--it's all Buffalo! and there are 2 great restaurants-one hotdogs, etc-(charbroiled) and one a bit upscale-steaks, seafood (had tasty apps)-and both have patios right on the water! How cool is that?

“A Wonderful Area for a Sunny Stroll”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

Have a great meal somewhere in Buffalo and then get to the Marina and enjoy the waterfront view, check out Sailboats, get some exercise and have an Ice cream in the fresh air!
