Felt a little bit tired but spectacular views make-up for this. Didn't do the restaurant part but a quick view from the lift left us feeling it lacked atmosphere. We are sure that in the summer months with more visitors it would be much better. All in all the view made it worth the money.

This place is really just an amped up tourist place. My boyfriend and I ate in the rotating dining room and got the steak and lobster special and scallops as an appetizer. They didn't remove abductor muscle from the scallops which was unappealing. As for the entree He ended up having to coat everything with melted butter in order for... More

I grew up in Niagara Falls and would always go with friends and family up the Skylon Tower. My brother used to operate the elevators as a summer job back in the 1980's. The place used to be full of stores, the lower level full of games, and the elevator operators used to entertain you going up and down. Now... More

I mean, it was fine. You go up and then what... we looked around, and walked back down. Wish I could say there was more to it.

Lunch time is the best time to visit the restaurant. The view is spectacular; the food is awesome; the wait staff are dedicated to making your meal fabulous. A one hour revolution gives ample time to enjoy a great meal. Lunch is more reasonable in price than dinner. The early bird time is fine, but I cannot go to Niagara... More

The tower is a bit dated but fun, especially for those of us who like towers and skyscrapers. Having stayed in a hotel on the 32nd floor, views were comparable. There was a wedding when we were there, which sounds like a cute idea!

Paid $12 each to go up this tower. Nowhere to sit, nowhere to get a cup of coffee. The lift attendant didn't say a word to anyone. Never again.

We visited the Skylon Tower, for dinner, on the evening of our wedding. We'd booked a table for 7pm but got there a bit earlier. When we asked the waitress if we could hold off ordering for a bit (20-30mins) she agreed, begrudgingly, and muttered to her colleague that 'she would've said something if they were busy'. When we explained... More

The Skylon Tower has awesome 360 views of the Falls and surrounding area. Elevators take you up and down whenever you are ready. No reservations were necessary, just a ticket. Parking onsite was helpful. The outside observation deck was amazing, but really windy and cold in the winter. Dress warmly!

My wife and I thought we would try this place for the view, which to be fair, on arrival we found was quite a dear option. So we opted for the buffet dinner idea of having a meal and the view. When we arrived quite early, between 6-7pm we saw plenty of empty tables which were by the window, but... More
