We have visited Niagara Falls, Ontario many times in the last decade. This time around we stayed on the American side for the first time. 

Where we stayed

We had a hard time choosing where to stay, while we are extremely familiar with the Canadian side, we were clueless about the American area. We ended up staying at Four Points by Sheraton. The staff was very attentive and got us to become  SPG members. However, we did not accrue a single point for this 2-night stay because we had booked via Orbitz.

Where we ate

When we visit Ontario, the first thing we do is to make a stop at Tim Horton’s. On this visit to the US side of Niagara Falls we went to Duff’s Famous Wings. After all Buffalo sauce is what this area is famous for.  The service was quite good, the wings were delicious.  I know some people prefer Ancher, but eating here was just fine and not far from our hotel. 

Lunch/ dinner at The Riverstone Grill 

This challenge dish is as delicious as it is big
                    When I proposed going to the Riverstone Grill to take on the “Bone in the Stone” steak made famous by Man Vs. Food, the group was a little hesitant, however, we had such a great time competing in duos that everyone was glad they had listened to me. I know that several of them have taken detours recently just to have the Bone in the Stone experience again. I’m sure we are going back the moment we visit the area again. If the picture doesn’t convey the magnitud of this meal here’s the description from the manu: “the legendary 50 oz. bone in rib-eye steak made famous on Man vs. Food! served with 1 pound of french fries and 1 pound of sweet potato fries. You can also add, Creamy & Crumbly Bleu Cheese and  Top it off with Onion Straws.”
What we did 

This time we got to explore more of the Falls area. We spent a great time as a family and at the end of the day the 7+ hours on the road each way were well worth it.
