This place sounds like it would have been a great place to go but it is now closed. Based on the great reviews on here, we tried to go on Dec. 27 but it is no longer opened :/ We then got frustrated in finding...More

Thanks to TripAdvisor we stopped at this local establishment we probably never would have visited. Simon's is the oldest restaurant in Niagara Falls. Upon walking through the front door, we felt like we were in an episode of "Horders"! Definitely a fun place to experience...More
