Our Favorite Restaurants

Here's a list of some of our favorite local spots. The Buffalo Niagara region is FULL of great restaurants and we like to avoid the chains and eat local. This is a few spots but if you're looking for more advice please reach out to us, we're always available!
Griffon's newest location. Easily in our top 5 local spots, this place has views that will blow your mind. Great beers on tap, absolute top notch food, the greatest patio in town, brand new renovation, a brewery in the works, should we stop now? Add this to the list, it won't disappoint. Don't want to/can't drive to Lewiston? Visit their closer location nearby on Military Rd in Niagara Falls.

This is the takeout spot. Great pizza and, obviously, gotta try some chicken wings when in Buffalo. Little tip for you out of towners, order your chicken wings plain with your hot/medium/mild sauce on the side and toss them at the house if you order takeout. It helps them stay crispy!

Do yourself a favor and head over here and grab a loaf of sliced bread. Then put anything on it. Anything. Butter, sandwich, grilled cheese, it doesn't matter. Just go buy the bread. Ashleigh's family in Michigan won't let us come visit unless we bring a minimum of 2 loaves....

The most beautiful park in the area. Open gorge hiking trails that allow you to trek down next to the river. Oh, and the most incredible outdoor live music venue you have EVER seen. Do yourself a favor and Google "Artpark" and check out their "Tuesday in the Park" and "Wednesdays at the Gorge" lineups along with special events. Get an uber to Lewiston, grab dinner on restaurant row and catch some live music!
