Very friendly staff. We only had dessert, though a bit pricey, it was big enough for two people to share.

I have eaten here in the past and the food was ok. This last trip, we had breakfast and it was very disappointing. The omeletes were very greasy and did not taste good. The prices were greatly increased. Not worth the time or money.

Went with 5 of us - a little over $100. Okay prices for area. Food was great. We had a cheeseburger, Tuna Salad sandwich, Ham & Cheese, Chicken Noodle Soup and a Chicken Breast - all were great. Chicken Noodle soup was to die for. Fries and Cole Slaw were okay, not our faves though. Service was excellent. Open 24... More

We've eaten here a couple of times and just like most restaurants in Niagara Falls, it's definitely overpriced. But if you want a tasty meal and don't want to drive anywhere I would eat here. Just be prepared to pay twice what it's really worth. Fast service and a clean restaurant.

This place is open 24 hours right at the casino. I stopped in for a coffee and it's a good place to sit and enjoy a cup of java before hitting the tables or after in my case.

No matter what you order it is delicious. There fries are home made. Fish and Chips with a small salad so large we only buy one and split it. Hamburgers are the best we have every eaten.
