A meal with a view awaits at Skylon Tower, featuring an observation deck and a revolving restaurant overlooking Niagara Falls. Located on the Canadian side of the falls, the 160 m (520 ft) tower features three external elevators that can whisk you to the top in just under a minute. The views from the outdoor and indoor decks alone merit a visit, though most tourists also choose to round-off their experience with a hearty meal at the onsite restaurant. The base of the tower contains several gift shops and an amusement arcade, making this attraction a good shopping/entertainment spot for families with kids.

Not much to say - You want to see Niagara and pay the price? Go up to the tower and get the view. We ate at the restaurant, it was decent but a little over priced for the quality. more »
It's a great experience! We went on my birthday and were able to capture beautiful views of the Falls. We shared a bottle of wine and each had a cocktail. The prices were a bit pricey but you could pay just as much elsewhere without a view like this. The also had a good vegetarian dish. You can expect to circle the Falls at least 2x during the meal and the rotation is slow and comfortable. The service was great and food was good. Would have given it 5 starts if the food blew me away.
I love this place! It is a great place to enjoy affordable lunch buffet at the Summit with amazing view of the fall. The food quality was okay, not that many selections, but the service is great. All in all, I still recommend people to go and check this place out.
