Restaurants near HSBC Arena?

Going to a Sabres game in a few weeks, staying in Niagara (Canada) and was wondering if there's any decent restaurants walking distance to the arena? I've been a few times, but usually just arrive to park and walk to the arena around 6ish, haven't really checked out the area around the HSBC arena.

There's a subway stop right at the arena, which will give you quick access to any of the restaurants along the subway line. (One of our favorites is the Pearl Street Grill & Brewery.) There's no charge for riding the train in the zone above ground, which includes most of the downtown area of the city.

I don't know of any within walking distance, but maybe someone else can provide that information.

I think the Pearl Street Grill is within walking distance, if you don't mind a bit of a hike. Also, there is a really nice Irish Pub on Mississippi Street (can't think of the name) but they imported an actual wooden bar from Ireland. It's just east of the Arena and across from parking lots. There's also the old standby for heaps of Italian food: Chef's, but it gets packed on game nights and you need a reservation. Sort of within walking distance, but definitely a hike. There are lots of photos on the wall of the famous people who've eaten at Chef's... sort of amusing. Their number is (716) 856-9187.

I believe the new Irish Pub is Morrisey's ...

Either Morrisey's or Pearl Street are your best bets. If you are into local authentic Buffalo pub/dives with good grub, the Malamute is very close and has great eats....it busy before games as well...

Well looks like we'll stop by Pearl Street Grill, what is a good time to arrive and not have to wait? This will be a Friday before the Sabres game.. is 5pm good or will there be a wait by then?

That should be safe. They run a nice Pregame "Buffalo Buffet" with wings, pizza, etc for about $12 to accomodate the crowds. It is a great option.
