This is the only restaurant I have been to when I was in Niagara. After walking around I am dead tired and I don't have enough energy to scan around so I tried this restaurant at the heart of Niagara's entertainment district across Skywheel. Well, for me nothing fancy, their menu is just ordinary like any other typical diner. I just had a burger and Ice tea but the service is good and the staff are friendly and I don't have any hard time ordering. The place is clean and not cluttered as of my visit. I just enjoyed looking at people walking outside while chewing every bite.
It may be the Chinese restaurant with the least Chinese-sounding name ever, but not only was it recommended to us by the hotel staff, it also received several East Asian tour groups. Unable to argue against these two signs, we tried it out.
A nice thing about this place is that they do take-out orders, which allowed me to take our supper back to our hotel room nearby. The menu is varied and includes both combinations for one person and full course dinners for 2-6 people (great when you want to taste a bit of everything). Prices are very reasonable as well. When you've had your fill of fast food, restaurants like this one are a welcome change.
The New York Restaurant is open every day from 11:30 a.m. to late in the night (12:00 a.m. Monday-Thursday, 1:30 a.m. Friday-Saturday, 11:30 p.m. Sunday).
Amid all the flashy places and signs competing for your attention (and your money), Mama Mia's doesn't really stand out... except perhaps for that giant picture of a smiling Italian mamma over its door.
Located just off Clifton Hill on Victoria Avenue, it offers better and healthier food than many of its neighbours. Don't expect to make any culinary discoveries here, the food is straightforward Italian fare served in a family-friendly setting.
We had lunch here on our first day in Niagara Falls and never found a better lunch menu elsewhere: a choice of 10 different dishes, each under $10. Both the spaghetti and veal parmigiana did their job of keeping my stomach satisfied until supper.
The food was delicious, huge build your own burritos, the biggest burritos we had ever seen. The staff service was energetic and efficient. Small and quaint restaurant, mexican style. Great place to take the kids.
Favorite Dish: Beef burrito with all the fixings.
Upon entering, the buffet should be enough to satisfy any person's hunger however when you find out that you have unlimited meat with waiters anticipating your request by turning over your green disc to signal that you are ready .... you have no other desire than to try every piece they have to offer. Stuffed and satisfied and well worth the cost.
Favorite Dish: The buffet is the best, just so much to choose from and suitable for all dietary needs.
We stopped by this place decorated in the style of Little Italy New york very cheerful.
In the summer there was a wonderful patio surrounded by well kept gardens.
Service is quick with a fun staff and in the summer sometimes a live band. It has a very central location
Favorite Dish: My favourite is the Lasagna it tasted home made and lots of warm bread to go with it. The greek salads were delicous also. There was a nice selection of desserts as well.
Quick counter service and friendly staff make this a local favourite.
Delicous wings and pizza with plenty of cheese, pepporoni and mushrooms!
Pizza is always hot and made with delicous ingredients
Favorite Dish: My favourite is the simple cheese and pepporoni pizza with a small order of wings.
It has a delicous crust and the wings are just the right flavour with your choice of mild medium or hot selections. They taste like Wings that you get in the states.
Tucked away in a village called Chippawa, part of Niagara Falls, is a cafe that really surprised me. Located on Bridgewater St. facing the river park, its setting is ideal. What caught my eye was the menu posted on the window: sophisticated dishes in the Continental styled, all at affordable prices.
Chief inspiration is Hungrian cuisine, but there are hints of German, Polish, even French cooking. You can select goulas of various meats; paprikas, stuffed cabbage, stuffed pepper, exquisite liver dishes, schnitzel, and lots of other classics. All foods are prepared without pre-made ingredients, so the quality is amazing.
Of particular interest are the palascintas, the central-European version of French crêpes. They are offered with an astonishing variety of fillings, both savoury and sweet; so you can have them all by themselves, or as dessert. Nothing to complain about here, and they can also cook the meals without wheat gluten -- even the crêpes.
Favorite Dish: Too many to metion; but I'd go with the Pork Stew and mashed potatoes, with a side of sweet/sour cabbage or cucumber salad.
New York coffee shop restaurant decor, comfortable without being snobby. Casual ambiance.
Appropriate name as there is a wide selection of savoury dishes and if you have a sweet tooth, lots to choose from as well. They have a continental menu: Belgium waffles,French crepes, hungarian palacsinta pancakes, Britany Crepes, Austrian Schnitzel, Italian Lasagna, Greek Salad, Hungarian Chicken Paprika, French Quiche and so on. Kids menu was also available. A senior couple asked for half portions - no problem. Prices were reasonable, Food very very tasty.
Favorite Dish: Home Made Thick with meat and vegetables soup, see photo to believe for $3.75 small bowl.
Chicken Paprika with home made noodles or spatzli and cucumber salad for $7.80 with a paprika sauce , and followed by a palacsinta consisting of strawberries with fruit Sauce and topped with Whipped Cream for $4.50 which was so good that I almost ordered a second.
We found this restaurant by chance, hearing a radio advertisement that it has just opened.
We searched for Hungarian food the day before since we are Hungarians- our daughter loves palacsinta. So the radio advertisement was in the nick of time. We found the Restaurant along the Niagara Parkway, crossed a little bridge and it was right there. Very comfortable and pleasant. I ordered Chicken Paprika, my little girl had a jam filled pancake, and my husband opted for the Spinach and Feta Cheese pancake. We all had the daily soup which that day was a chicken soup well known in our home country - Ujhazi. Everything we ate was to our satisfaction - and we were suprised that the flavours and meals was as if we were still in our homeland. The best palacsinta according to our little girl. My husband loved his palacsinta and I enjoyed the Chicken Paprika with the pinched noodles. Too bad we were leaving Niagara Falls the next day or we would have been there again.
Favorite Dish: Spinach and Feta Cheese with Sour-cream topping
Gundel with Rum Sauce
Ricotta Cheese, Lemon Grinds and Raisins
The Famous is a 24 hour, upscale diner. You can find it in the Fallsview Casino. It is decorated in Art Deco, and the service was very reminicent of bygone days. Quick, efficient, and very friendly.
The food was fresh and hot, and the portions were perfect.
Favorite Dish: I had the veggie omlet. The veggies were not overcooked and very fresh.
My companion had the pea-meal bacon breakfast. She absolutely loved it. said it reminded her of the fresh pork that she would get on her grandmothers farm when she was a little bit .... pea-meal bacon is canadian bacon, canadian style. Not anything like we're served in the states, and much better tasting.
The Falls and Firkin is the newest in the (as I recently discovered) chain of Firkin pubs in Canada and the US. It's in the Fallsview Resort & Casino, on the ground floor right next to the Horseshoe Falls. I really enjoy places like this, for the friendly service, the good food and the beer on tap. I kept it simple foodwise, just had the grilled cheese and fries. Should've had a salad, but I was on holiday! It was quite tasty.
They have about 15 beers on tap. May I suggest you try the Butler's Pale Ale? It's made exclusively for the Firkin pubs, and it's quite good. They also draw a fine pint of Guinness. Not that anyone on VT drinks Guinness, of course ;-)
I hung out here for a few hours after seeing the Falls, sat at the bar, watched some football and talked to some fun people. The Falls and Firkin is a great place to stop, for a break from whatever it is you're doing at the Falls.
Welcome Aboard Niagara’s First Choice for Dining!
Favorite Dish: The lovely place with good atmosphere and meal, good and unobtrusive service. Just pleasant impressions. We recommend this cute little restaurant to anyone and everyone.
This was another recommendation that I got from Trip Advisor, we try pizza just about everywhere we visit and I didn't want to eat at a chain pizza place.
Maybe we just picked a bad time to come but the atmosphere was like Chuckie Cheese, there was a table of 8-10 kids next to us and a table of 8-12 adults behind us, the kids were actually better behaved than the adults who were talking so loud that they probably could hear them on the US side of the Falls! After the restaurant started filling up a bit, the large groups weren't nearly as annoying, I guess the other customers were absorbing their loud voices. There is also an outdoor seating area which might have been the better choice on this particular evening.
Service was extremely fast, our pizza was out in less than 15 minutes. The owner, who you can see on the video on the website listed below, was in the restaurant while we were there so he's obviously very hands on. I just wish he would have told the loud yappers to shut up :-)
Favorite Dish: The pizza was pretty good, I found a coupon online (see website below) for $10.95 for a large 2 item pizza which was a great deal. With drinks our meal was less than $15CDN, a bargain for Niagara Falls.
We were looking for a nicer place away from the chains and overpriced restaurants near the Falls and found a recommendation for this place on Trip Advisor. Queen Street is quite a distance from the Falls area, we walked from our B&B on River Road but took a People Mover bus back.
We grabbed a table outside, Queen Street isn't overly busy so it was a nice al fresco meal. They had a jazz guitarist playing and when he stopped we could hear the street performers a couple of blocks down doing Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks tunes. Service was very efficient and pleasant.
Favorite Dish: I ordered moules au curry ($14.50), mussels in a curry sauce with a side of frites (french fries) which was very good, the curry sauce had a nice flavor and the frites were perfect. For dessert I ordered a nutella banana crepe with chantilly cream which was also good but overpriced as they charge $1.50-$1.75 per extra ingredient so it was $8.50 for a dessert crepe. It wasn't anywhere near as good as the crepes I dream of from Paris or even from my favorite crepe shop in London as it was a bit light on the ingredients. Then again, I was still a bit full from the heart attack in a box from our earlier stop in London ON. The drinks were also a little expensive, I am used to expensive cocktails coming from Chicago but a martini shouldn't cost $12.50 especially not this far away from the tourist center. C'est la vie...
Overall I thought it was a pleasant dining experience though I probably would look for somewhere different to dine if we return.
When I say perfect location, I dont think you can get better then this! The rooms have an awesome...more
