My girlfriend and I came here for our anniversary. Never been here before, or Niagara Falls for that matter but based on the reviews we gave it a shot. The Red Coach Inn was absolutely gorgeous. From the drinks (BlackBerry Mojito) and the appetizers (crab cakes) to our main courses and dessert, we were blown away. The service was great and sitting outside we had an amazing view of the Falls. We’ll definitely be back!

Quaint atmosphere but salad greens were old and wilty and very over-priced. Our server was sweet but she had a very dirty bandaid on her finger as well as an open sore on her arm. Her apron was filthy. It was a very unappetizing. The view of the water was nice.

Although service was really good with two waitstaff serving us, The entire restaurant needs a serious facelift, and the food was mediocre at best. My mahi-mahi was over cooked and did not taste that fresh. My boyfriends steak was just OK. Their wine list needs help as well.

We have dined at the Red Coach many times however this particular experience left a lasting impression. The service was in a word, terrible. The waiter could best be described as crude and dismissive in the true sense of these words. We've never had such an unlikable person who mostly ignored us in favor of shooting the breeze with another couple at the other end of the dining room. The food was good as it usually is and the atmosphere the same. However, it will be some time before we go again.

Great downtown spot near the American falls. In summer you can dine on the porch, which is sweet. The building is old and historic, a sweet venue. Food was very good; the wait staff always seems friendly, and it's moderately priced.

We had a wonderful late lunch here. It was blizzarding and the restaurant was a warm cozy haven. I had a fish fry which was filling and delicious and my husband had a tuna melt which he devoured. You can sit in the porch area which gives you a beautiful view of the Falls as well. The staff were friendly and accommodating. A great experience and we will be coming back!

The ambience in the Red Coach Inn is nice. The service was “okay.” The Mediterranean plate was a VERY yummy appetizer. All of our meals had extremely bold flavors - very rich or very spicy, etc. so if you’re looking for subtlety, this is not your restaurant. The feta and shrimp pasta, in particular, was so spicy with red pepper flakes that it was nearly inedible. Overall, it was a tasty meal, though.

I will say, the food was good and the portion size was good for the price. Ate breakfast and dinner there and it was 2 totally different experiences. Dinner was perfect. Service, food, atmosphere. Loved it. Breakfast on the other hand, the food was good, the Service was something else to be desired. The waitress pretty much dumped the coffee in my cup and would not be bothered other than that.

We were very excited to have dinner here. The ambiance and service were practically unmatched. The food, however, was another story. Generous portions but everything was seasoned either too heavy or nothing at all. Hate to say it but we definitely would not go back.

I typically never take the time to submit reviews, but I felt compelled to after our negative experience. The service was extremely poor. When we arrived, it took forever for the hostess to seat us. There were only 3 parties in line. When we sat, it took unusually long for our drink order and then even longer to actually get our drinks. It wasn’t even that busy, especially for the bartender. The waitress explained to us that there would be no bread for the table because of issues with their cooler. I’m not sure how that is even possible. If they lost their butter due to cooler issue, they should have went to the store and bought some for the evening. As our meal went on, it took forever for our drinks to be refilled. Finally our meal wasn’t that great. Two of our steaks were over cooked instead of medium. The other steak was undercooked and wasn’t butterflied as requested. This was a very disappointing experience. On the plus side, the ambience is very nice.

A local restaurant built in 1923 (?) replicated to 18th Century English decor. Beautiful. Real wood-burning fireplace kept us cozy on a winter's day. The Niagara room overlooks the Niagara rapids, nice view. Our server was very attentive. It was my husband's birthday, and our server, Joe overheard and came over to tell him to save room for the dessert- my husband said 'how about a shot of bourbon instead?" Joe said he'd see what he could do. When came back with our drinks he also brought him a shot and said it was on him! So nice. My husband had the strip steak which was done to perfection, came with mashed potatoes and asparagus. I had the swordfish, spinach risotto and broccoli. All was most delicious. I would definitely not hesitate to go back. Not too pricey either.

The food and wine were AMAZING!!!!! My wife and I went there to celebrate her 40th birthday for a quick lunch. It was so good we cancelled our reservations for another restaurant we had and went back for dinner. Both meals were delicious and the servers were super friendly and helpful. Great atmosphere and great service. We will definitely be back.

Service, food, and atmosphere were all wonderful! We went on a Thursday night in January and were able to park right by the front door. Being off season it was very mellow and we were even able to pick where we wanted to be seated. The fireplace was crackling and warm. We enjoyed everything about our meal and we look forward to returning to explore more of the menu.

The building looked so beautiful outside and the ambience inside the restaurant was simply amazing. The Haunted history was very intriguing and added to our interest in visiting the Inn. The menu offered a vast selection. We were a party of 5 and every single entrée we ordered was utterly delicious. Service that was provided was extremely gracious & professional. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who plans to visit Buffalo.
