Restaurants in Niagara Falls

Going to Niagara Falls next week and wanted to know if there are any good, reasonably-priced restaurants that are worth going to. I already know of the Flying Saucer Diner for 99-cent breakfast, but not sure of any others.

I'm mainly going to be staying on the Canadian side, but if there are any good ones in the US close to Rainbow Bridge, that would be ok.

Suggestions?

Thanks! :D

Don't know what you consider reasonable. We ate at the new Niagara Casino Grand Buffet, all you can eat, for $19.95 (plus taxes) each, last week. That included all non-alcholic drinks. Parking inside was free. Buffet included Prime Rib, Crabs Legs, Shrimp, Chicken Wings, Pasta, Meat Loaf, Roast Beef, Beef on Skewers, Baked Salmon, Pulled Pork, at least three different potatoes, various cheeses and salads, and a huge desert bar. I am sure I have forgotten some of the other dishes as well. We had a window table, overlooking the Falls. Great food, service, and atmosphere.
When all else fails, read the instructions.

The Keg Steakhouse is okay...but not worth it for the money I think...

Great food at a modreate price is at the Outback Steakhouse...these guys serve AMAZING ribs! An especially good bang for the buck thing to order is 'Drovers Platter'...feeds two people and comes with Chicken/Ribs and cheese fries.

the food's really heavy though so you might wanna grab a side of salad.

Dont bother going to the casino buffet on a saturday night. I was there over the weekend and there must of been a 1 hour lineup until about 10 pm. Personally I think your better off eating outside of Niagara, like in St. Catherines.

I'll vouch for that, wasn't expecting much when I did go there, but the food there was quite good. But I do have to admit that the wait there was pretty bad. Seriously after 10 or so it's like a half hour wait.

I went to Kelsey last time when I was at Niagara Falls. The quality of food is alright but you gotta expect to pay couple dollars more than you pay in town (Toronto).

Just went there on thanksgiving. You should try the restaurant at the Walden Galeria mall. It's called Red tuesday. The food is not bad and the portion is bigger than what we get in TO.

That's Ruby Tuesday; and we have them all over the South since they're from Knoxville. Personally I'd stay the hell away from them because I know ppl that got BAD Diahrrea from eating at locations South of Atlanta and even in some of the locations here in AL. So just watch out, and personally you'd be better off going to Applebee's, Chili's, or Bennigan's.

Pauline I'll give you the local perspective. Everyone around here heads to Mick & Angelos (corner of Lundy's Lane and Montrose just up from the outlet mall) for italian, pizza, wings. Another favourite is Falls Manor on Lundy's Lane for broasted chicken, etc. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Then there is Betty's Restaurant in Chippawa on Sodom Rd. Great homecooking style and a regular place for locals. Lots of locals also go to Chatter's on Portage Rd. A varied menu with everything from steak to stirfrys to pasta. John's Restaurant on Thorold Stone Rd is another local hangout.

For over the border there is always The Pressbox, it's a local icon. It's on Niagara Street just past 3rd on the left hand side. It's hard to find as it's quite small. It's cheap, a real hole in the wall but the food is fabulous. It's close to the Seneca Nations Casino (the old convention center).

Thanks to everyone for their suggestions so far and to CSK'sMom for the local restaurants.

I'm going to be visiting during the week (Mon-Wed) so I imagine it won't be crowded, so maybe I'll try the Grand Buffet.

Any other suggestions for restaurants, other eateries and attractions are great appreciated.

Thanks again!
