Popular area for grabbing a bite and some drinks in the evening when we are in town. Very close to downtown hotels.

Reviewed 10 October 2013

Don't forget to check out Gabriel's Gate for awesome buffalo wings. Crispy and delicious! Bar-b-que ribs were large and tender.

“makes for a great afternoon stroll”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

We stay at the Holiday Inn at Delaware and North once a year to visit downtown Buffalo and always stroll in Allentown. A great mixture of retail, pubs, restaurants and street life. Pride in the neighbourhood is obvious - street art, flower pots, store front attractions. An eclectic area.

“What a change!”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Years ago, actually, many years ago, I went to college in Buffalo. I went Downtown expecting to go through the Allentown Red Light District on the way to the Anchor Bar. Wow, what a transformation. Its all little fancy shops and restaurants. Very nice refurb of beautiful architecture. Well worth a walking afternoon.
