The big draw here is the view from the Revolving Dining Room: perched 520 feet above the Horseshoe Falls, it's simply breathtaking. And the atmosphere puts this restaurant above those serving similar cuisine in the area, drawing an eclectic crowd of couples in cocktail attire and families in casual clothes. The menu revolves as well: prime rib with horseradish sauce and chicken cordon bleu have made appearances. The Summit Suite Buffet Dining Room, an all-you-can-eat buffet restaurant one level up, doesn't revolve, but has comparable views for slightly less and serves a popular Sunday brunch. A reservation at either restaurant includes free admission to the observation deck, which makes the prices (upward of C$50 per person at the Revolving Dining Room; C$40 prix-fixe dinner at the Summit Suite) a little easier to digest, considering the food is secondary to the view.

There are many great view restaurants in Niagara Falls--you will not find one with a better one than this restaurant. The food is very good and the service is great. Everything is pricey, but that's expected for the location. The place is very popular with group Japanese tourists and the only annoyance is constant camera flashes in your eyes--but that's not the restaurant's fault. Since the dining room is revolving--ladies, don't leave your
purse on the barre near the window--cause your purse will move away from you!
