The Frontier BBQ and Smokehouse Ratings and Reviews
Good food. Great selection of BBQ and hot food. Comfortable ambience. Ideal for any family celebration.
For the most part the food was good with the exception of the Apple crumble. There should be apples in the crumble and there wasn't.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Frontier BBQ! Everything was delicious from the mains to the sides to the dessert!! We will definitely be back next time we're in Niagara Falls.
Nice atmosphere. Kelly was a great host and our waitress Rebecca ?! Was very attentive
We are local and we were treated awesome first from the manager and from our waitress Rebecca who was great. We lingered awhile because we were with friends and it wasn’t a problem. We will definitely be back.
Good atmosphere loved the food! Good bang for your buck...im cheap so id rather pay 35 bucks for all you can eat then some dinky little serving! I got out eaten by my girlfriend...i enjoyed to much beer at the casino which was perfect cause it was right around the corner...will definately go back again..only complain is the seating was tight along the side...great value and a good heavy meal !
My family ate here for my 5 year old's birthday, and the employees were very welcoming and attentive. The food was great and the buffet area was kept clean and stocked. I would eat here again.
Fantastic staff with our young children, offered great tips for out of town visiting. If you love bbq this is the place to go.
The food was good. It didn't stay very warm. Lots of food , just not my kind. Maybe a roast of beef, steak.
Les côtes levées un peu secs et le porc effiloché beaucoup trop de sauce, mais le reste était excellent.
Great food! The ribs were fall off the bone tender. Everything we tried was delicious. Staff was exceptional going out of their way to make sure our dining experience wasn't ruined by a BBQ sauce/white shirt incident.
A great spot for the whole family. The brisket was super delicious and so many wonderful sides to choose from. Highly recommended
Awesome food and great service. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and because it was a buffet we probably ate way too much.....the brisket was amazing. The salad bar could have had a little more variety....
It was good but nothing amazing, the beef brisket was dry and the pulled pork sauce was super salty and super sweet hard to eat it. The chicken was very good though. Would be nice to have more options for the price.
Fly found in my sons bowl of fruit. Although they apologized they felt it was best to offer another bowl rather than going to see if they may have more flies!
Everything was scrumptious, and being a brisket fan, the brisket was number one. Extremely tender,flavorful, and juicy with every bite. There are 2 kinds of brisket- the fatty and the lean kind. This place served the fatty kind which I prefer for the fat is where it's at! The mac and cheese was the chosen accompaniment, which I topped off with cheese curds from the potato bar. The BBQ sauces are also numerous and quite flavorful. I found the blackberry sauce to be my favorite. What topped off the whole experience was not having to ask for the Tourism and Improvement Fee to be removed. I will definitely be back.
Not bad food . i wish they would of had more then 1 dessart on buffet .. It felt like they wanted us to get dessert of reg menu ... For 4 of us it was 163 with 1 drink each .. Dessert we should of been able to get more then apple crumble
All in all was pretty decent but food was a bit dry in my opinion. The brisket was awesome though !The great service made up for the average food.
Ribs, Ribs, and Ribs...need I saw more! the best!
$30 weeknight AYCE buffet dinner with a great variety of meats and sides. Was pleasantly surprised at the number of meatless options such as baked potato bar with 20 toppings, breads, garden salads, deli salads, mac and cheese, cooked veggie options. Even if it is a BBQ themed restaurant, I'd absolutely recommend to vegetarians. Fresh cut brisket was excellent as well as the fried chicken and pork ribs. Brisket was on the fattier side, but since it's AYCE, you can just go up and get more if you want to toss the fat. Lots of sauces for the meats. All the food was served at the appropriate temperatures. Beer on tap was $8 for a pint but was very good and standard price for the area. It's more than I'd usually spend on a buffet, but reasonable pricing for the tourist district of Niagara. Our server was friendly and attentive to our needs, refilling waters as needed. Restaurant was clean.
the food was cold we asked for two different meats that was not on the table
one was meatloaf wrap in bacon and another was can. bacon when we go
out for a meal that costs over 100.00 we don,t want to have kids running
around us and yelling we had to get out the night we were there one family
had 5 kids and 3 were under 5
Was in the falls with my wife & seen the restaurant from the balcony of our hotel room & had to try it, The food was amazing, The staff was all very friendly & the service was top notch. Will definitely be going back.
Amazing service. Food was great. Beautiful place and very clean.
Was not good food at all. Way over priced. Would not recommend this place to anyone. Will be telling people not to go there. Half an hour after my date and I were on the toilet for the rest of the night. Totally wrecked out night in the falls.
We found the atmosphere very very bright for an evening dining venue. Having everything as a buffet item was also a bit of a turn off as well, there are no options to order and have dishes brought to you which is an inconvenience for someone with a disability. Being from the Niagara area, we have experienced many other dining options in the general area and would probably choose one of those options before returning here. We thought maybe having all the sides as buffet options would be fine but we think the meats should be brought table side (like Copa cabana) and sliced off fresh instead of getting up from the table for every single thing to eat. We also waited forever to get our bill taken care of. Granted it was a very busy night so our waitress asked the manager to take care of our bill, he came to the table and asked how to bill our party, we told him and then apparently he ended up having to deal with an issue and we were left waiting much longer than needed for our waitress to realize we hadn’t been taken care of.
Awesome food and service! I will definitely be going back
Service was great, food was ok. Alittle overpriced for the quality, but lots of quantity. Def much better BBQ places available.
They did not have our reservations so sat us by the front door. The restaurant seemed more like a fast food place sitting at the front doors and not in the dining room, made it feel cheap and over priced for $35 per person. Food was good. Would be nice to see a larger salad bar but most people are there for the BBQ meat. Watch the automatic tourist tax if you're a resident. Might go back during the week when it's a bit cheaper, it's not worth $35.
Food was nothing special. only 2 desserts was disappointing. Mac and cheese and brisket had no flavour- expected more from a smokehouse. Food set up was cramped seemed more like a hotel breakfast buffet.
I find it difficult to get value for my money with any All You Can Eat Buffets but we wanted to try FrontierBBQ.
Now I have my own smoker and do my own ribs and pulled pork all the time and occasionally I try brisket so I feel I know a bit about BBQ.
Frontier does a good job with BBQ. I loved the brisket, the ribs were good but just not to my taste, I prefer less salt in my rub. The pulled pork had way too much sauce for me but I could see it was popular with many others. I was impressed with the selection of sides and what I tried were good but I was there for the meat.
They kept everything replenished and and the whole buffet area was bright and well laid out.
I’d recommend Frontier BBQ for special occasions, groups or folks that are really really hungry.
The staff was awesome. The atmosphere was pleasant.and exciting.Keep up the good work.
food was ok, All tasted same though. Server did not check in once and didn't take tourist tax off until we questioned it. Price was way to high to justify meal . Restaurant was clean but not cost
Great selection of delicious BBQ! Potato bar is awesome and the brisket was perfect. I left feeling full and hurting!
For the most parts there was so much food to try. I sampled a little of everything I liked. The one thing that was not my favorite was the turkey roll and stuffing. I feel for the price you pay a real turkey should have been more appropriate than a glorified turkey roll. The stuffing also didn't taste really home made it felt more like boxed stuffing. As for the rest of the food I sampled it was really good.
It was our first time there and a friend recommended it to us...we spent our first night ever in Niagara Falls and it was a excellent choice to have dinner lots of good choices of food!!!
We went for my Granddaughter birthday, everything was great, the food was delicious.
This was our second time there and would definitely go again.
Overall we enjoyed our birthday celebration and dinner. This was our first visit to this restaurant. Table for 4 was crowded with 5 of us but food was good and varied although the fried chicken was quite dry. With this kind of buffet I understand food needs to be prepared well in advance but there were a few items that did not stand up well to pre-cooking. Service was not a good as it could of been especially with a 4 year old and I would recommend expanding the beer selection a little. Seemed like some odd choices.
We are local residents and will likely go back.
We enjoyed our dinner here so much and will be back. This is the only buffet I will visit in Niagara! Thanks!
The food was just average. The brisket was terrible. Most of the food was cold, including the baked potatoes. I will not eat there again.
1st time there. Great food and service. Great price. BBQ smelled great from hotel room. Meats were well cooked and propper portions. Guess it's just DIVINE.
