As you walk into Niagara’s newest steakhouse, The Meat Market Niagara, you will be wowed by a really cool ceiling. Designed to look like a giant wine barrel, it sets the mood for a great meal with attentive service. The kitchen area is open concept so that you can get up close and personal with the chef as he sears your steak to perfection. We serve USDA Prime, a tender and juicy cut of meat, that is one of the highest grades of beef found; as well as Wagyu, a Japanese Kobe beef. A wide variety of local beer and wine will be on tap (yup, there is a wine tap) and specially selected to pair nicely with our mains.


One of the most unique things about Meat Market is that every steak is branded with our logo, seared into the steak. All our employees are highly trained in both food and wine pairing and ready to help answer any questions about your meal.

A reservation was booked based on reviews and service for a large group -business dinner. Dinner was late - 3 hours, it took them 1 hour for appetizers. Dishes/sides forgotten. Steaks were inedible- either overcooked or under cooked. Fish overcooked. Three of the guests fell ill that night. I can't even blame it on how busy it was...because it wasn't. Service was not well-timed. Have no idea whether they were understaffed or not; but the fact is that you know the # of reservations you have for the evening- you prepare for the # of people coming to your restaurant. Obviously the reviews online are 'inaccurate' by far. I cannot recommend this place to anyone at all.

My wife and I decided on Meat Market for our 25th Anniversary . We had eaten with friends a few years ago and our dining experience was excellent as well as the food. Unfortunately this time it just wasn't the same experience, the waitress was very friendly and courteous but the meal was no different from your traditional "Family Style" steakhouse without the paper on the table ! I myself had started off the meal with a French Onion soup that was at best lukewarm. The steak was brought out in a small cast iron skillet separated from being plated the side was a ramekin with a lid housing warm mini potatoes no other vegetables were served with the meal and all served with not so fresh pita bread with a crab dip that you could have eaten as a soup and a Caesar salad that was supposed to have a piece of prosciutto which unfortunately tasted like a piece of regular bacon. To say we were disappointed is an understatement , especially for such an important occasion. Unfortunately our experience this time has created considerable doubt that we would be returning to this establishment or referring it to others !

On a vacation for a few days in the Niagara region, had heard about this place as a must-go... what a deception! Ordered the soup of the day which was supposed to be cauliflower soup. Instead of the expected taste, it was more of a vanilla custard taste with some spices... couldn’t finish it. Then, the sirloin steak ordered rare was far from being tender as I had a hard time cutting through it just to check if it was cooked properly... To top all of this up, the first wine bottle chosen wasn’t available as the restaurant is trying to cut down the selection offered as the server told us... An expensive meal that I would not recommend to anyone.

Great food, very friendly staff, this was our first visit to Meat- stayed at Ramada & received $20 off while on Vacation & enjoying the area & our 3rd Anniversary.
Very tasty meal but pricy-but considering the area, should have been surprised.

Food was fantastic, but the restaurant appeared to be severely understaffed. We waited a lengthy time at each step (ie; to be seated, to get drinks (& re-fills), for bread, to receive food, etc). However, although the staff were very busy, they were very apologetic and provided rounds of complimentary drinks. We did enjoy our dining experience despite it taking twice as long as expected.

Eat anywhere but here. We live in Niagara Falls and decided to give this a try....horrible. Service was sub-par with our waitress acting as the hostess and bartender. Steak was not cooked per requested and was horribly small. Our drink glasses were empty and we wanted to order more but never had the chance. We asked for the bill...took 20 mins because server took 3 orders before going to get it.
For a better price and way better service...go to the Keg or Canyon Creek!!!

Extremely disappointed. I am unsure how there were so many wonderful reviews unless we just got them on an off night. We were celebrating our anniversary and the dinner was a complete flop. I immediately was turned off when we were dropped off at a rundown Ramada Inn, to walk inside to a restaurant next to a swimming pool. There was one waitress/hostess/bartender for the entire restaurant. She was very sweet but just obviously couldn’t keep up. We waited 20 minutes for someone to come to our table. Every table around us sat dirty, uncleaned. We ended up ordering when she came to our table due to the wait. We received our steaks before our drinks. I never received my salad. We didn’t get bread like other tables did. Our steaks were terrible. Poorly seasoned, tough, charred on outside. The garlic mashed potatoes tasted instant. It was painful to swipe my credit card for the $132 bill. Save yourself the trouble and just eat at a chain restaurant in the area because the whole area lacks charm and anything “upscale”.

We went because of a groupon, but would not go back. Tables were small. The food came out all in separate dishes which made the table cluttered. Meal was good, But not return visit level of good.

For a place with the word Meat in it. Wasn’t impressed with the quality and wasn’t worth the groupon price let alone full price. The lobster wrapped in bacon was deep fried and not editable for 11.00. Looked like to small shrimp to me and the bacon was burnt. Not to mention they left the shells on. I think the Keg would be a better option.

This was a Groupon gift from my granddaughter. The Caesar salad was very good, bread basket mainly sliced pita wedges, would have liked more in the way of a small roll. The mussels were absolutely amazing - broth was delicious. The is a steak house, so was expecting a much better quality of steak. I ordered my steak medium and it was raw, had to send it back, my husband ordered medium rare - still raw, but he didn't mind it. It was a 10 ounce strip loin - not very tasty or tender. Veggies were good, brussel sprouts very good. Overall it was nice, service was good. Maybe a 7 out of 10 for a rating.

I ordered the filet mignon. 39 dollars I believe.

The waitress asked before I ordered if I was staying at the hotel.... I gather because of the coupon discount I got a sirloin steak instead. Most would not know the difference however I definatly do know.

Even for a sirloin it was still rather tough.

Definatly not up to par for a dedicated steak house.

I understand the 40 dollar discount comes into play here so I didn't complain.

I did not mention anything to our waitress. She was absolutely great.
She definatly made the dining experience for us.

Wasn’t happy with the service. Waitress didn’t seem to friendly. Steak was not hot when it came out. It was not cooked the way we asked so we sent it back twice to have it cooked more. We ask for less redness inside.

Service was very good. Food was average. We ordered the holiday set menu - filet mignon but the quality of the meat was so so. We sent the dish back to the kitchen ... the chef was great to make another slice of the filet mignon but still, was fairly dry. It’s the quality of the meat that’s not worth the money paid.

The food was Delicious from start to finish. The bread came to the table hot! The soup and Cesar salad were unique and very tasty. My husband had the mussels and said they were the best he has ever had in his life and we were out east this summer so that is something to be said. Steaks were cooked to perfection and tender. I chose Parmesan Basil fries which were extremely tasty. Finally the creme brulle there are no words to describe how good it was other than wow!
The staff are all great, friendly and attentive.
I would definitely dine here again when we are in the area.
