Whatever you’re craving, you can find a Niagara Falls Restaurant with a menu sure to cFallsview Buffet Restaurantover it. The options are endless with everything from fine dining to casualfare, and even the best grab & go options.  We wanted to call out Fallsview Restaurant located at Sheraton Fallsview Hotel for two exciting promotions this summer that you should add to your itinerary.  The restaurant which offers spectacular views of Niagara Falls and is noted for delicious breakfast and dinner buffets is offering Kids Eat Free Dinner (for guests 12 years old and under) which is available every night after 5pm. (receive one child buffet dinner free with the purchase of an adult buffet dinner at regular price). Fallsview Restaurant also has special Princess Meet & Greet Breakfasts planned for the weekends until August 7 (paid breakfast is required to participate).

For an adventurous meal, visit Rainforest Café Niagara Falls. With a menu of wraps, salads, burgers, sandwiches, pasta there will be something for even the pickiest of eaters, but the surroundings are even more impressive. Entering below an 80 volcano, you dine under a simulated rainforest canopy in the company of animatronic creatures including Elephants, Gorillas, Snake, and encounter an indoor thunderstorm every 20 minutes with a rainwall, lightning and thunder.  Another great option is Hard Rock Café. With its rock and roll theme, priceless musical artifacts, and an extensive menu of food and drink options, it is a great spot to dine and introduce the kids to music history.  For a treat on the go one of our favourites is Sweet Jesus ice cream for soft serve that is truly a work of delicious art.
