As part of a tour bus to Niagara Falls we stopped at the Spot for lunch. In a word it was terrible. The Spot was dirty and smelled. My first rule when visiting a new restaurant is does it smell good and it is clean. Sad to say the Spot failed on both counts. Visits by wife and I to the rest rooms confirmed that it was dirty. As far as the smell let me say that soup kitchens feeding the poor and destitute smell better. We sat at the counter and could see into the kitchen, yikes. While at the counter a worker came out with baked goods, the apron he was wearing was filthy like he had worn it to change motor oil on cars. A couple of times during our meal a dishwasher came out to empty trays, not sure who needed cleaning more, he or the dishes. Afraid to eat some of the specials wife and I ordered eggs with ham. Both of our dishes were cold mine came with a ham slice of questionable origin. While at the counter we witnessed a diner No-No, where the waitress took stale pots of coffee and dumped them into a new pot. Avoid this place.

They have a soft shell crab special, and I asked if the crabs were fresh or frozen. Fresh, they said. It would have been better of they were frozen. My crabs tasted like ammonia, that's how old they were.. And we got cheesecake, which was OK, nothing fantastic. Very disappointed.

Interesting diner atmosphere with tasty desserts. Many menu choices but the quality just isn't there anymore. Just so so. Small kids might not care as long as they get their French Fries.
