Niagara Falls Restaurant recs

Wife and I will be vacationing there in June, staying at the Fallsview Marriott Canada side, for a few days. She is planning EVERYTHING, since this is a real bucket list destination for her. She is also planning the dinners, but I just wanted to check with you all and see what recs you have. We like causal, nothing really fancy, no need of Michelin, just really good food, and wine! We will have a car, but I really don’t want to travel too far just to eat. Good atmosphere, views, quite, Raveneau…a plus! Also things to do beside stare at the falls.

Thanks

Stay in Niagara on the Lake if you can. It is a pretty drive along the river to the falls. If you have to stay in the tourist trap, you can get the room Marilyn Monroe stayed in at the Crowne Plaza Hotel for the same price as any other room.

As for restaurants, Pearl Morissette is worth the drive, but fills fast as soon as reservations are available. Langdon House is not as good, but you eat in a gorgeous garden.

More casual and closer to the falls, Counterpart Brewery was good. The other option is Tide and Vine Oyster House. There is a lilac garden that is free but would imagine it would be too late for that. I personally enjoyed hiking at Niagara Glen more than the falls itself but it’s a moderate hike of a few miles to get to the river.

Few other threads on wineries in the region but favorites are Cloudsley and Bachelder. Opened a great gamay from Bachelder last night. Megalomaniac is great for lunch.

I also really love The Bruce Trail. Pretty convinced that all the great wineries are on it, but nice hiking with no crowds.

If you want to dine in Niagara Falls this is my favorite. Farm to table and local wine.Several good choices as mentioned in wine country.
