    Skylon: Dining above the falls

    by apbeaches Updated Apr 4, 2011

    The views made the Skylon so special. We took many elevators and were above the Falls. The floor or the restaurant rotated a full 360 degrees. Service was attentive & our meals were good.

    Favorite Dish: Salads and prime rib with all the trimmings were very good. However, this was our priciest meal in Niagara Falls.

    Skylon Tower: IT'S A GREAT VIEW!

    If you wish to dine, and adult lunch is $27.50, early dinner (5 - 5:30) is $34.95, and dinner (6 - 10 pm) is $39.95 while childrens prices range from $12.50 to $15.00. These were the prices in May of 2009, and of course that would be in Canadian currency.

    On another level they have a buffet that is advertised as "family affordable" but no prices are listed.

    The observation deck is free if you are dining.

    Favorite Dish: we didn't eat up there.

    Skylon Tower Dining Room: A great view

    by shargurl Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This was a memorable dining experience. The view was outstanding and a great way to see the falls. We didn't have the pleasure of having a hotel room with a view so this was the next best thing. But be forewarned, this view comes with a great price! The menu was in the "most expensive " range. A steak and lobster dinner went for $75, and a dinner off of the kids menu was $17. Yes, that was chicken fingers and fries as well as for prime rib! We ended up with a $275/CDN bill (about $250/US), this is without the wine and for a family of 3.

    The service was superb though. We didn't have a reservation (we were asked if we had one), but they accomodated us immediately. We took the elavator all the way up and were seated promptly. We dressed very casually (shorts and t-shirts) but they didn't seem to have a dress code, although for those prices you would expect it. But this is a tourist town so we were okay.

    Favorite Dish: I had the filet minon which was very good, myu husband had a New York strip that was tasty too. My son had the kids prime rib that he enjoyed very much.

    Skylon Tower Dining Room: Treat yourself to a great meal and view

    For those with a taste for the extraordinary Skylon's Revolving Dining Room simply must be experienced. The award winning continental cuisine is presented in an elegant setting 775 ft. above the Falls. Lunch or dinner, the menu is rivalled only by the view, which you can appreciate at leisure (one rotation per hour). Dine by night and you'll discover the unique atmosphere created by the illumination of the Falls.

    Skylon Tower Dining Room: A must for dinner!

    We booked dinner at the tower and it was well worth the money. The food, service and view was great. We did the buffet which is just 1 level above the revolvong dinning room and were not disappointed at all. After dinner you can go up to the observation tower for free and the views 360 degrees are outstanding, you can see all the way up to Lake Ontario. Everyone here was very nice and very helpful. it was clean, even the rest rooms. We would highly suggest this for a romantic dinner.

    Skylon Tower Dining Room: Great view, wish the food was half as good

    by kazander Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The food at the Skylon was like the food at a bad wedding reception. Started off with OK bread, moved on to a mediocre salad, the your choice of Prime Rib, chicken or fish..then wrapped up with some chocolate moose. Blech. The View IS fantastic though. The rotating resturant takes about an hour to take you all the way around. Usually your just getting the check when you've completed a turn. Genius planning really.

    The place is expensive! Save some bucks and go for the early bird special. Or better still save more bucks and just visit the observation deck. grab dinner someplace else entirely

    Great View from Skylon

    Skylon Tower Dining Room: Rotating Restaurant!

    by Gwynethart Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Steak, salads, soups, various chicken dishes, fish...I had Chicken Cordon Bleu and it was good. The thing about this restaurant which makes it different is that you have to go up the exterior elevator to reach the restaurant. If you are afraid of heights, don't stand near the window - once we were near the top, I had to look away! The restaurant rotatates slowly, so you can have a view of the Falls, which is lit with colors at night.

    Favorite Dish: I have only been there once, and it was not the greatest meal in the world, but it really was tasty enough. Chicken Cordon Bleu is fine, and everyone else at the table seemed to like whatever they ordered.

    Skylon Tower Dining Room: Of course... another great view

    This was a great evening for our last night there. The dining room is revolving, one complete rotation every hour. You're 775 feet above the falls and city, good food for lunch or dinner. At night, of course, is beautiful. We managed to get seated by sunset, so we had the best of both worlds... a daylight view, then a view of the city lights and intense colors of the lit up falls.

    Skylon Tower: Leisurely Dining With a Great View!

    There really isn't a bad seat in the house. The restaurant revolves so that while you are dining you can view Niagara Falls and the surrounding area. The wait staff was very friendly and the food was good. Be sure to check out the observation deck after dining.

  • Zappi's Pizza & Subs: Niagara's finest & most affordable pizza !!

    by rebeccahardy Written Jul 16, 2009

    If you are looking for some delicious Italian food in Niagara Falls you have to check out Zappi’s Pizzeria! I am confident that this is the best pizza you will ever try. My husband ordered a chicken parm sub with grilled veggies and can not stop talking about it! I have tried myself to make it for him since we came home but nothing will ever compare to the quality and time put into the meals at Zappi’s. I am truly amazed that they are still only one of a kind, and I hope to one day see much more built in different areas of Canada so more people can enjoy this delicious pizza!! Thank you Zappi’s for making our dining experience an unforgettable one!

    Favorite Dish: Chicken parm sub with grilled veggies & the stuffed peppers!!

    Skylon Tower Dining Room: Go only for the view

    This is a revolving restaurant and for that reason it is a neat place to eat. However, the price is very high for blah food and the service is indifferent. Such a shame that attractions that have something special to offer rarely provide their best at what they are meant to do.

    Don't know but you can't miss it!: Excellent place to watch the falls.

    We didn't eat here but we sat out on the deck and had a few (probably too many) drinks. It was great because it's right on the Falls walk. Althought we didn't eat- the food looked and smelled really good.
    This isn't like a night club or anything. It's just a place to kick back and take everything in. The waiter- and the rest of the staff- was very nice.

    Rotating Restaurant on the top of the tower: Rotating Restaurant

    This is a rotating restaurant on the Canadian side of the falls. It is at the top of the Canadian observation tower. You must make reservations in advance. The restaurant actually slowly rotates and you can see the falls all lit up at night. The food is good too, buffet for the most part.
