Dining at Niagara Falls

Still would like to get some suggestions on dining at Niagara Falls area. Any comments on the Rainbow room at the Brock Hotel? We have 2 dinners and 3 breakfasts there but want to try a couple of other places since it is our first time there. Appreciate any suggestions.

The food in the Rainbow Room is decent, but not spectacular with good, but not the best, views of the falls. While you've been waiting for responses, have you checked out www.infoniagara.com or www.destination.niagara.com? The Parks Commission restaurants are all fabulous. Magnificent views with reasonable prices and bargain early bird specials. Another bargain early bird special is avaiable at the Skylon tower with the BEST views. You can book online. It's best, of course, to make reservations before leaving home for popular times and the best tables. Hope you're up in time for the included breakfast and getting back in time for dinner doesn't cut your day short.

Thanks for the advice on the Rainbow Room, even though we have breakfasts and 2 dinners included we probably will go somewhere else for a dinner and breafast. It was actually cheaper for the package than not. Anyone been to the Terrapin Grill? Also has anyone stayed at the Brock. Comments please.

Hi: Just in case you are looking for less touristy spots here are a few suggestions. Four Brothers on Lundys lane(or Ferry St) not far from the Howard Johnstons. The Jade Garden is good for chinese. Close to clifton Hill there is Momma Mia's and the 2 restaurants next to them are very good. In Queenston Heights the restaurant at the park is excellent and has a great Sunday brunch with patio etc I think it is 19.95 and half that for kids. Behind the Skylon there is the Stone Croft which is nice. Are you going to Niagara on the Lake? If so the Prince of Wales is a beautiful place and there are lots of smaller places there also. Casa Doro is also very good Italian, close to the hill also. Hope this helps. Karen

Thanks for the info Karen. I am really excited since I am leaving next Sunday. I know it is a family trip but since the kids are not with us any longer I still think it will be fun and new to both of us. I wrote down the names of the restaurants and hope to try at least one of them.

anncat...I hope you're still looking here...add the 21 restaurant in the Niagara Casino to your list, as well as side trips to the nearby Wine country...On the Twenty, Hildebrand, and Strewn Winery all have excellent restaurants. The Rainbow room has an excellent view of the falls, but the food is buffet style or limited choices off a so-so menu. Why else would they give it away...I skipped one of my dinners...If you go into Niagara-on-the-Lake, the Prince of Wales Hotel has a super restaurant, or you can catch any number of outside bistros. Try to get away from the touristy area...you won't regret it.

Thanks Gary I am writing down the 21 Restaurant and figured as much about the free dinners at the Brock. Do restaurants in the area get pretty busy at this time of the year, in other words should I make reservations? It is a Sunday thru Wednesday stay. Any help appreciated.

The real tourist season starts on July 1,which is Canada Day, a National Holiday...Most of the tourist restaurants around the falls, Clifton Hill and Lundy's Lane are no reservation. The list of finer restaurants I gave you are busy on the weekends but open for the rest of your stay. Day of dining reservations would be a good idea. Have fun...

Thanks everyone for your help in planning my trip to Niagara Falls. It was so impressive and I am glad I went. As for the Brock Hotel I would recommend it for location and price but as I was told the food was just average or even below. Breakfast was ok, dinner tasted like airline food. We tried Montana's after some recomendations at the hotel but wouldn't recommend it to anyone myself. Tried Mr. Greek for lunch and that was pretty decent. Best meal Twenty One and I highly recommend it to anyone going. Glad I saved it for our last night there. Also Marriot Courtyard was a bit further so Brock wins out on location. Managed to get to see Niagara by the lake but didn't eat at the Prince of Wales. The hotel was worth the little drive there it was lovely. Thanks all.

We really wanted to eat at the top of the Skylon tower, but we hadn't made reservations in advance so we were out of luck.

After spending an hour looking for decent food, we ended up having a wonderful meal at the Applebees around the corner from Skylon!
