We visit as often as possible. Food is always served efficiently and hot with pleasant and accommodating staff. We've tried almost everything on the menu. We never leave hungry, generous proportions from salads to entrees. Pierogi's are always on, but specials have various fillings and always delicious. Fish Fries are fresh and fries can be substituted with veggies and other... More

It was a great experience. The food was amazing. The service was spot on for the big group we had. Meals came out hot and on time for everyone. As there were three types of meals offered and it was delicious. Now I can usually finish my meals but I had steak leftovers which made my steak and eggs breakfast... More

Wanting to get away from the crowds at the falls we stumbled on this place. Excellent food. Don't let the old building or its location keep you from enjoying an excellent meal. Friendly service. Great selection. Chicken Parmesan was wonderful! My wife enjoyed the roast pork. Family run place that really strives for excellence. So happy we found this gem.

We normally drive past Niagara Falls on our way home. This evening we looked for a place to stop. Kobans popped up so we gave it a try. Good good, good service, good portions. Unpretentious, friendly staff & clients. The pierogi were the best I've had. It was St. Patrick's Day so my husband had the corned beef & cabbage-----lean... More

This was our first visit. My father had recommended it a few times. The whole experience was excellent. The food was delicious. Our waitress was friendly and made the visit fun. Will visit again. 😀

I brought friends from out of town here because one wanted steak. This place has been around for years! The look of the place has not changed over the years, but it is fairly understated so though not new and hip it is not run down or tacky looking inside. I do love the old wooden bar up front. So...

My husband and 2 children went there for dinner on a Sunday night after a long day at Niagra Falls Park, visiting from Wisconsin. It was not busy. We were quickly seated and got our meals in a timely manner. The food is reasonably priced for all that comes with it and also tasted good. We had their sirloin steaks,... More

Scary location, last time I tried to eat there they were closed, thought i would give them another shot on a Sunday night.
