Another great dinner at Manhattans! Both the pork duo and the sea bass were extremely tasty. The live jazz band was excellent. Service was prompt and friendly. A lovely evening out!

A bit disappointed that there were no stouts on tap, but I was the only one. The Smash burger special is an outstanding deal! I've had it several times and never been disappointed.

Everything was unremarkable. The only thing we found was that there was NOT or minimum amount of ventilation. The ambience/air to breath was too, too hot! Thanks

Fantastic BBQ and great service … once they let us in. We had an 11:30 reservation but there was apparently a scheduling mistake so they didn’t open until noon that day. That is the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5. Other than that, we were totally satisfied. Service was great - they were happy to accommodate a menu modification for us. And everything on the BBQ pit platter was really tasty, and we are BBQ affectionados! We will definitely come back in our next trip to Blue Mountain.

Restaurant has a good vibe. Drinks came to the table quickly however the food took a little too long (approx. 45 min). Unfortunately the grilled cheese sandwich I wanted to order was removed from the menu, however it was not indicated on the menu. Food was tasty, would go again. Server did his best but not super attentive. They also had a band performing at 9pm. Super Natural. They were good but once they started to play the lights in the restaurant were dimmed, seeing food in front of you was difficult and the noise level was so conversations were quite difficult. We were done eating by then and were able to enjoy the entertainment. Just something to consider if that environment works for you.

We were visiting Niagara Falls from the Chicago area and looking for a place for dinner our first night in town. Niagara Brewing Company was perfect! Great location, delicious food, and live music—what else could you ask for!
