15 Best Restaurants in Niagara Falls, Ontario

Looking for the best restaurants in Niagara Falls to eat at?

Niagara Falls is one of those places where you can visit every year without getting bored of it, whether you’re visiting during the summer or any other time of year.

Summer is definitely the busiest season in Niagara Falls, but it’s also fun to visit during other seasons as well – I love visiting during the beautiful fall season with all the foliage!

There’s a mix of chain restaurants (mostly American) as well as some local restaurants around Niagara Falls.

You’ll definitely want to grab a glass of wine at one of these restaurants if you can, as Niagara Falls is right by the beautiful Niagara-on-the-Lake (AKA wine country).

Here are some of the best food spots and restaurants to eat at in Niagara Falls, Ontario!

Things to do in Niagara Falls

If you’re coming from Toronto, you might want to check out this Toronto to Niagara Falls day tour by bus – it includes wine tasting, scenic photo stops, and free time to explore on your own!

If you’ll already be in Niagara Falls, this fun half-day wine tasting tour by bus takes you to 2 to 4 Niagara-on-the-Lake wineries, depending on the option you choose.

Though it is a little pricy, it is totally worth doing a scenic helicopter tour over Niagara Falls, especially if you’re looking to treat someone.

If you prefer something more adventurous, ziplining over the Niagara River Gorge is pretty epic!

The Works

The Works is one of my favourite burger chains here in Ontario.

They have like a million different burger combinations you can completely customize, and you can choose everything from the bun to the patty!

I usually grab whatever the burger special is for that season, but I also love the Hipster, which features caramelized onions, avocado, and havarti cheese.

The burgers come with your choice of side, and I always go for the spicy die cut chips (SO GOOD).

For appetizers, definitely grab the Wrecking Balls – they’re bacon-wrapped cheddar tater tots with bacon garlic aioli and bacon sticks (AKA Hickory Sticks).

If you don’t grab the Wrecking Balls, still ask for the amazing bacon garlic aioli to dip your spicy die cut chips!

The Keg Steakhouse + Bar

My family and I love coming here for special occasions – I love the Filet Mignon!

The Chilled Seafood Tower is a great option to share, and it comes with a selection of raw, marinated, and cooked seafood.

Their Steamed Mussels and Tide & Vine Lobster Roll are also both worth a try!
