The food was very good (roast beef and poutine) but it took a while for the bartender to acknowledge that there were 4 new customers at the bar. She was not that busy that she couldn't atleast look in our direction and acknowledge the fact...More

Kind of a dive bar, but the roast beef is still awesome. The only other thing they serve food-wise is nachos ....

Swiston's had been in Tonawanda for years and always sold only roast beef on kimmelweck. Their sandwiches used to be really full of beef, but now they've become skimpy. It is time to expand their menu.
