Niagara Falls US-side restaurants?

Recommended Posts

My SO and I are on an RV ramble and will find ourselves in the Niagara Falls area in a couple of days. Are there any places we should really try to pick up a meal from? US side only due to Covid restrictions at the border. (Last I heard us Americans have to keep our germs on this side. 🤣 Which given vaccination rates in some states I quite understand.)

 

Failing restaurants any farmer’s markets or other interesting shops?

The three times I've visited Niagara falls we ate in Canada.  Perhaps if you say 'eh' convincingly enough they will let you in.  How well can you swim?

 

Roy Andersson's most recent film, About Endlessness, has a dinner scene near the end that mentions visiting Niagara falls.  How delicious to hear Niagara falls pronounced in Swedish.

Not well enough to convince anyone I’m just a beaver that got a bit lost. Or a moose. Do moose swim?

 

It can’t be more disappointing than our recent stop in Erie where the only place we could find that was open near us was a chain pizza location. Not even a greasy spoon diner sort of thing to be had.

 Erie is a wasteland for restaurants.  Go on Open Table...there's nothing. Third largest city in PA for crying out loud.

Yep, that’s what we found. I was really surprised.

Coincidentally, a few days ago, I threw out visiting the US side to which my wife (who's been a few times, me never) said emphatically there's no point in going if the Canadian side isn't open.  Good luck, hope you find something!

That wasn't chicken

Yes, moose swim very well.  They regularly swim across Lake Okanagan in BC, Canada.  We almost ran one over with our boat a few years back.

 

I can imagine that wouldn’t be very good for the moose OR the boat.

So far everything interesting is “oh, wait, Canada.” But we didn’t really plan it so much as decide to just follow along the edge of Lake Erie and that’s about where we will have to turn around.
