Stopped for breakfast on our way from Lewiston to Fort Niagara. We're surprised to discover it overlooks the river, with views of Niagara on the Lake and in the distance, Lake Ontario. Great food at great prices.

The Diner is a local favorite. There staff are very friendly and happy to help. They remember your favorite foods and always greet you with a friendly smile. They get very crowded at times because they are a small place but the service is quick and it's worth the wait. Reasonable prices and good quantity.

Small-town casual charm and comfort food served up with a view of the magnificent Niagara River. Fort George is clearly visible on the opposite shore in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, and the walls of Fort Niagara can be seen where the river empties into Lake Ontario. The diner is located in the heart of the village, perched above the marina, which is... More

I think it is the best diner in the area! And has an awesome view of the Niagara River and Niagara on the Lake, Ontario. And of course, the food is great! Breakfast, lunch and dinner.

All meals were excellent, nice portions for not too much money. The hot meat ball sandwich is served with meat balls sliced on Italian bread slathered in sauce... More

Youngstown is a charming little town, (but not quite as charming as Lewiston). We wanted to take the drive from Youngstown through Lewiston and then to the Power Vista, and so we brunched in Youngstown before heading south through the amazing views from there to Lewiston along the Niagara river.. The diner is cute and the food is good. However,... More

My husband and I found this place as we drove to see Old Fort Niagara. Everyone was very friendly and it was one of the best breakfast I have ever had!
