    Quite a View
    Definitely a great view of the Falls, but very windy. It's also very confusing as they only had one door to go outside from and a different one to come back in. However, the one to come back in was not marked at all, and all the other doors were locked. Several people were wandering around the tower on the outside just trying to find which door was unlocked. I found it very expensive, just to go up and get blown around while trying to look at the falls. They con you into getting some photos as well downstairs before you even can get anywhere near the elevators to go up.

    SKYLON TOWER VISIT
    If you purchase tickets to see the 3D movie, you receive a $10 discount on a meal if you choose to eat in the restaurant. Make your dinner reservation first - you are then entitled to go to the TOP and experience the observation desk free of charge. The 4:30pm - 5:00pm early bird dinner is a good deal, especially if you have the $10.00 discount ticket from the 3D movie. The service was fabulous; the dinner was so delicious and filling. They also provide you with a generous basket of fresh baked bread. I would highly recommend visiting the Skylon Tower and be sure to top it off with dinner in the revolving restaurant. The sites are breathtaking! Treat yourself.

    Beautiful view, mediocre food
    Rotating restaurant gives beautiful views of the city and falls. Quite stunning. Downside is that dinner is pricey and only mediocre quality. Glad we visited for the views but wouldn’t rush back.

Amazing dinner and views from Skylon Tower today. We ate at the buffet restaurant, delicious selection of foods with starter, mains, desserts, cheese & coffee/tea for $50 per head (£37) Staff were lovely and couldn't have been more helpful.
Parking is so easy in the town, even for the motorhome with multiple parking lots offering all day parking for $5-10

Can't beat the views from the top. We went for the buffet restaurant. Many choices. If you go for 5PM you can be pretty sure of a table near the window.

We had a delicious early dinner that included admission to the observation level. Service was wonderful! The views of the various falls and the river were breathtaking during our meal and afterward from observation area. Restaurant rotates so you have the opportunity to see everything for miles in every direction.

We ate at the Skylon Tower, choosing the buffet restaurant at $50. As it costs $20 just to go up to the observatory, we thought the price was okay. The food was really good, and as it is an all you can eat buffet, there's plenty of choice and the food is good quality (except the 'chicken fingers' were awful - tasted old as well as being cold!).

Our table was booked for 5pm and we arrived to check in at 4.45pm, securing a window seat. The views are truly amazing.

Highly recommended.

Along with the amazing views--inside and out; they have all kinds of trivia about what you are looking at.
I would do it again. Maybe dining there during the holidays.

It was 20 dollars of nothing
I got a better view from my room. We took pictures before going in, then they manipulate it as if you where in the Niagra falls. When arriving to the top there was no feeling of joy or wow feeling. We stayed about 6 minutes then left. When you get back to the bottom they really want you to buy their pictures. No atmosphere at all.

Have not been to the Skylon Tower for decades. Booked a dinner at their buffet restaurant. Didn't even know they had a buffet restaurant. Booking included the ride up and access to the observation deck. The view is magnificent and as they say, on a clear day you can see forever. The buffet was excellent with ample choice of entrees, sides, salads, appetizers and desserts, all well prepared and delicious. The wine list was also very good.
After dinner, a trip up to the observation deck was a fitting end to the evening.

True views are amazing
. only hindrance for photography is metal cages after glass windows . This is obstructing views. However one can stretch out with the help of selfie stick and have photos.Another suggestion is to stop the elevator for few seconds in between journeys.This view through Skylon is to have inexpensive view of entire American and Canada side view of Niagara falls as helicopter rides are too expensive,
