What Our Guests Say

“Repeat customer”
This establishment is awesome. Food is excellent, service is professional, management is second to none and the view is exceptional! I’ve been a customer since I was a teenager and now into my 50s I come back to the area and eat there several times each August when on vacation.
“Sun, water and great food”
A WNY landmark is what Old Man River is. Hot dogs, burgers, seafood, the best fries and the beautiful Niagara River. Prices are reasonable, food is great, setting is perfect. You wont be disappointed.
“Great seafood"
Right on the river. Great view. Food and drinks were great! Service was awesome. Shaded tables. Good music. Love the atmosphere!
“Better than expected!"
Was looking for something near to our home base & this was within walking distance. Ordered to go~ burgers, slaw, pork were standard, everyday fare; however, the Clam Chowder, Lobster Rolls, & Steamed Clams were very good! We got a lot of food for the price. Would recommend the seafood menue over regular menue.
