Spent a lovely late afternoon with friends. wonderful breeze, quite water and just the right number of friendly boats, private and commercial. buffalo looks beautiful from the water level. A trip up the river to the silos is an additional bonus.

Doesn't come close to the previous restaurant - Dug's Dive. Food is so so and over-priced; little to no ambience inside. The kicker was being told that we couldn't eat out on the expanded deck; that was reserved for "drinkers." In the past, this location...More

Great spot to launch your boat! Plenty of parking and lots of loading/unloading ramps! Can get a bit crowded on Holiday weekends but what boat launch doesnt get busy at those times?

The Small Boat Harbor is the largest marina in the Buffalo area. It has lots of ramps for launch/ retrieval that are changed to accommodate the current boat traffic. There is a fish cleaning station, lots of parking, bathrooms a restaurant and a new park....More
