I brought friends from out of town here because one wanted steak. This place has been around for years! The look of the place has not changed over the years, but it is fairly understated so though not new and hip it is not run down or tacky looking inside. I do love the old wooden bar up front. So...

The best steak we have had in years. Simple restuarant and menu. Staff could not had been more friendly. As visitors to the area we wanted to eat local and this was worth the drive

My husband and 2 children went there for dinner on a Sunday night after a long day at Niagra Falls Park, visiting from Wisconsin. It was not busy. We were quickly seated and got our meals in a timely manner. The food is reasonably priced for all that comes with it and also tasted good. We had their sirloin steaks,... More

My girlfriend and I were on a trip to the buffalo area and we decided to find a bite to eat, we saw some reviews for this place and decided it looked good. Let me get the one negative out of the way, it's not in the nicest area. That being said, however, I would go again in a heartbeat,... More

I've been coming here many years, and it's always been one of my favorites. The steak is always cooked exactly how I like it, and they serve some of the best French Onion soup I've ever had. Any visitor or resident of Niagara Falls should come here.

We went to Kobans to celebrate a birthday. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. All of our meals were cooked to perfection and served hot. Soups, veal, chicken parmesan, pierogi and fish were fantastic. The sweet potato fries were the best we ever had and the garlic toast on the table was a surprise. Entrees are served... More

Large menu, great service, good prices. It is in a bad neighborhood, but is very popular with the locals, so we were not concerned.
