We were staying at the Sheraton On The Falls, and really wanted to avoid paying their astronomical prices for the breakfast buffet, so we decided to explore. Don't you know, right outside our front door, through the beautiful park across the street, was this little gem of a restaurant. It has an attractive exterior and magnificent views, plus whimsical decor... More

The Secret Garden Restaurant is located on River Road across from the American Falls. This is a place where you can go in and have a sandwich and soup or salad without getting piles of fries, etc. and ending up with a bill for two in the $50.00 range. We stop by for lunch so that we can have something... More

This is a must stop for us in Niagara. We are always well treated by the staff and then bend over backwards to make sure we are happy. The wait staff are especially accommodating to my son who has Autism. They treat him with respect and kindness. Will always make this a stop. Food is delicious and served fast.

The wait staff made sure that my special dietary need were met, the meal was very flavorful, and more than enough to fill you up.

It was warm enough to sit outside and enjoy the scenery while we ate. We had intended on eating breakfast, but we arrived too late so we had lunch. Our waiter was very friendly. Average lunch was $14 and was ok, nothing special, but we were there for the view. Parking is difficult and expensive. There's a very nice gift... More

Great view but terrible service. We waited ages for a waitress as there was confusion as to who was serving which tables. A big party came in and those of us sat outside were ignored. We asked where was our waitress and were told she was now working inside the restaurant BUT no one else came to see us in... More

The secret's out. Ate breakfast at The Secret Garden VERY, VERY nice little place. Very good menu, very good food, very reasonably priced. Friendly, courteous, helpful staff. Be prepared for a few humorous surprises... like Bruce The Moose. I'll definitely make it a point to come back... if I'm ever at Niagara Falls again

Quick lunch while on the go. We had lunch on the patio, the food was ok, service was quick. Attached to a nice gift shop. The view is very nice.
