A must-visit restaurant when visiting WNY; a must-visit restaurant for every Western New Yorker. The legendary Haystack sandwich, as featured on Man v. Food continues to be amazing. The implementation of the pager system to notify you when your order is ready is the perfect addition to this establishment. My only negative this visit is that during closing weekend, all... More

After ordering, food was ready fairly soon. Great view of Niagara river below Rapids. Jet boats leave Lewiston from dock below or can be seen passing by from Niagara on the Lake. Or just sit and watch fishermen on dock or drifting boats. If in Lewiston, enjoy your lunch here at the Silo. Only complaint, they close too early in... More

We used to be regulars at The Silo as recently as July 2016, and often took visitors from out of town there for the views and the haystack. Our last dining experience there in August 2016 was terrible. Our kids ordered the kids haystack and corn dog meals and we had the same from the adult menu. The haystacks and... More

My husband and I visited Silo when we were staying at the hotel that's right across the street from it. The restaurant is located on the river and it's a great place for getting some food or a drink while overlooking the river on a beautiful summer day. Being from out of time and my husband liking to try local... More

The food is always cold. It has very little taste and is very pricy for a hot dog/hamburger stand. The service is usually super slow and the staff is rarely pleasant but the view is amazing and on hot summer days there is usually a wonderful breeze off the river.

Hi Jane, We're known for making food that is delicious and cooked to order. This does take longer, as we always say - are not fast food. If we were we would be offering the cheap ground meat found at other restaurants rather than the grass fed, steroid and hormone free beef our customers have come to rely on. We... More

They are opened seasonally from spring to early fall. The food is always great and they support local farmers. The haystack is their feature sandwich that has made it to a few food channel shows. They are always making it more friendly with little upgrades here and there. The carved bears are a sight to pass your time while waiting... More

I went to Silo with a friend as we waited for the Jet Boat. The view alone makes this place worth the visit. We both ordered a Haystack. Yummy! Price were pretty good - sandwiches were under $9 and my Heineken was only $4. I do not go to Lewiston often but when I do I would stop here again.

We went on a cold and rainy day, but that did not stop us from enjoying the restaurant and surrounding area. The grounds were nice with lots of fun bear statues. The food was excellent and the view of the river was very nice.

The Silo is a landmark in Lewiston New York and the views can't be beat. The staff is always friendly and the food is good to very good. Portion sizes are fine (except the mammoth haystack), but you pay for the view. Lunch for 4 ran $50+ with no alcohol and no desserts. Most of the menu is routine fast... More

We had our three grandchildren for overnight. It sometimes hard to keep them occupied. The Niagara river is always a place that they love. Fishing is a good pastime. I just wish catching went along with fishing. Never the less the treat was going to Silo restaurant. They love the hamburg's and hotdogs-I helped them eat the fries, they are... More
