The Keg Steakhouse & Bar
Ninth Floor – 6700 Fallsview Boulevard, Niagara Falls
Appreciate one of Niagara Falls’ most spectacular views while enjoying one of North America’s most popular steak houses at the Keg Steakhouse & Bar.
Constructed with the idea of creating an all-encompassing dining and falls viewing experience, the steakhouse, located in the impressive Embassy Suites Hotel, is surrounded by striking floor to ceiling windows which allow patrons to dine while taking in Niagara Falls from every angle. Open for both lunch and dinner, the Keg is the ideal location not only for year-round appreciation of the Falls, but for enjoying Niagara Falls’ seasonal firework displays – Canada’s longest running firework series – which take place right above the Horseshoe Falls.
Feast on crab and cream cheese stuffed mushrooms, sesame seasoned tuna tartare, Applewood smoked bacon wrapped tenderloin or the New York king of steaks; there is a dish to satisfy everyone at the table and a view to truly make it a night to remember.
33rd Floor – 6361 Fallsview Boulevard
Elevating the Niagara dining experience, The Watermark Rooftop Fallsview Dining has created an elegant and contemporary atmosphere that both complements and mirrors the grandness of Niagara’s waterfalls and local produce.
The signature restaurant of the Hilton Hotel and Suites Niagara Falls Fallsview, the Watermark rests 33 floors above the ground and offers inventive cuisine complimented further by stunning floor to ceiling windows and an almost birds-eye view of both the Canadian and American Falls that reside below.
The menu features fresh farm-to-table continental fares and local produce infused dishes including the famed Pingue Prosciutto and Antipasto [crafted with local organic prosciutto] and slow cooked short ribs with crisp pancetta and Yukon mashed potatoes. Their fixed-price three or five course menu options allow diners to customize their dining experience and enjoy multiple courses at an affordable price – because you will want to sample it all.
Skylon Tower Revolving Dining Room
5200 Robinson Street
Prominent above the crowds at one of the highest vantage points in Niagara, the Skylon Tower’s Revolving Dining Room is unlike any dining experience in the region.
The iconic destination attraction that once defined the Niagara Skyline today offers award winning continental delicacies presented at 775 feet into the sky. The menu is rivaled only by the incredible panoramic views of eight thousand square miles of Canada and the United States visible to diners from every perspective as the room silently revolves a full 360 degrees over the course of the hour.
Menu items include Mediterranean Seafood Gumbo, Surf and Turf with 9-ounce rock lobster tail and filet mignon and Skylon’s Spectacular Rack of Lamb.
But the spectacular scenery is not only ready for enjoyment once you have arrived in the dining room. The journey to the top of the tower is an exhilarating 52 second ride in a glass pod that runs along the outside of the Skylon Tower – so get the camera ready as you both arrive hungry and depart full.
The Rainbow Room
The Crowne Plaza – 5685 Falls Avenue
Set directly across from Niagara Falls, the Rainbow Room, located in the historic Crowne Plaza Hotel Niagara Falls-Fallsview, presents an expertly crafted contemporary Italian menu with a Niagara twist.
Lead by famed head chef, author and TV Host Massimo Capra, the Rainbow Room has been put on the map for its elevated traditional dishes. Chef Capra has created a new level of culinary experience by utilizing and appreciating Niagara’s epicurean landscape; with each dish featuring Niagara produce as the culinary star and revolving around Capra’s motto “use the best to create the best”.
