Sandstone Grillhouse Ratings and Reviews
I've been going to this restaurant for over 20years. It's the number one restaurant in Niagara Falls. The food is fabulous no matter what you order. It was my birthday and i usually order fillet mignon. It melted in my mouth. The service is excellent. This is locally owned and the owner and cook and wait staff really care about their customers. You will be impressed!
Came to Niagara for a date night with my boyfriend and saw great reviews for this restaurant and decided to check it out. It did not disappoint! Great food especially the crabcakes appetizer and even the garlic bread! I ordered parmesan chicken with mushrooms for my entree and even though I don't normally enjoy tomato based red sauce this dish was an exception, so good! Also enjoyed the lava cake dessert. Our server (Don? I didn't catch his name but that was the name on the receipt) was a delight, very friendly and personable. Would definitely recommend and can't wait to come back and try other dishes next time we're in town!
Really nice spot, food was great. It was very busy, so we had to wait for a table for about 10 mins (with a reservation), but sat at the bar and had a drink which was nice. When we were seated though, we waited a while for our waitress, she took our food order right away and didn't come back. Empty glasses sat out, could not get her to look in our direction so finally went to the bar to get our own drinks (after about 10 mins of waiting for her to notice). Felt like we were at the "pay no mind" table - everyone around us got drinks, bread, their appetizers...and nothing for us. Ultimately it was fine, the food more than made up for the mediocre service, and our waitress was very nice (and busy, which we understand). The bill was super reasonable as well. Would definitely go back.
The food was tasty and plentiful.
The service was friendly and efficient
Its was a quite night but the atmosphere was still good
Every year we go to Niagara for New Years, this year we tied Sandstone.........OMG food was excellent service was outstanding. I have told everybody about it. Will I go back ABSOLUTELY.
Thank you for making our new years one to remember with the great start with great food.
We were a bit late as we were lost on the way there but the host was very understanding and was very welcoming. The service was very good as they made sure we were having a good time. Food was very good, app+soup+main was on point. Steak was very good, would order it again.
Been to Sandstone numerous times...always great food, friendly staff...will go again
Food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Very friendly staff. Would definitely go back.
We were visiting Niagara Falls for the night for my wife's birthday and thought we'd try this out. I'd say that the reviews did not disappoint....it was quite good. Service was good. Nice restaurant (cozy - not a big/commercial feel to it) and we were seated at a table that felt somewhat private and out of the way. STarted off with nice appetizers - absolutely loved the crispy calamari. Nice wine list - with red wine prices reasonable. I got nice steak and wife got salmon, both very nicely done. Took a tad long to get the bill at the end but overall I think it was a positive experience and I'd definitely recommend it to others.
Had some friends over from out-of town, so we talked them into joining us at Sandstone's. They had never been there before, but we had told them that it was a nice place for dinner. We tried not to "play up" Sandstone's too much, because our friends routinely travel, and have seen plenty of nice restaurants. But it didn't take long for them to be impressed. By the end of the meal, they couldn't stop talking about it. "Why haven't we heard about this place?" "This food is amazing!" It made US look good too, because our friends have been complimenting us on our "great choice" for a restaurant.
Grear friendy service and great food.
Owner comes by to say hi
We were in Canada visiting from the US on our Anniversary and brought our kids along. The food was amazing and the restaurant easy to find. Very close to the Falls tourist area - where we were hanging out for a few hours before dinner. Talked with the owner - Danny - who was a delight! Our service was wonderful. Food prepared fresh and came out at just the right temp. Our 13 and 10 year sons found something that they really enjoyed (not always easy!). My husband and I enjoyed the Prix Fixe menu, which was a great value - I sure left feeling full!! thanks - we will be back.
Great restaurant on edge of downtown. Staff was really nice, service so good, and food was SO delicious! We are from Chicago and have high standards on food...they definitely met our expectations!
We had a great server with personality and he had great suggestions.
We were glad we gave it a try and will return.
We had a great time here. The restaurant lived up to our expectations! Highly recommended!
Sandstone Grill is a great jewel among the many restaurants along Victoria Avenue in Niagara Falls, Canada. The staff are friendly and treat you like a member of their family. The food was varied and delicious. There were so many options to choose from it was difficult to decide. My husband had a seafood special which he liked and I had the lasagna. We had a friend who's Italian grandmother taught her to make lasagna for Christmas dinner. Her lasagna was the best I have ever had. The lasagna at Sandstone Grill is probably equal to hers!!
Small bonus is the free parking in their lot if you are lucky enough to get a space.
The bartender is by far best. My Wife has a pineapple allergy and he sterilized almost everything in the bar before he made her drink and brought it to her himself. Our food was also amazing.
Surprised to find a spot outside of NYC that served such great steaks.
Got off to a bit of our rough start due to a 20 top seated before us and waited 35 minutes for a drink...but after we FINALLY saw our regular server and explained to her our angst...she saved the night and provided excellent service.
Food was average...feel the OpenTable reviews are a bit high.
While the food seems slightly overpriced, it was very good and the atmosphere and wait staff make the price tolerable. I liked that it is removed (yet walkable) from the tourist traps of downtown and our waiter was one of the best.
Excellent time on our anniversary food was amazing and our server we'll you couldn't ask for a better one
We were in a niagara falls and I chose this restaurant due to favourable reviews.All round excellent !!A must to when we go again
Reviews all looked good so we tried it. Monday, September 11. Great Food, steak better than the Keg, which we tried the night before. Prices were reasonable, somewhat casual atmosphere with high quality food. Server was fantastic. We were happy. I would point out that we bought an all inclusive meal for 2 for $89, and server told us the dessert was included but when we received the bill, we were charged extra for the dessert.(Lava cake was the best we have had!) That was a bit deflating, but we didn't approach the server about it to try and rectify it, just paid the bill. Not the end of the world. Make a reservation, we would have been turned away if we didn't have one. We would eat here again, and recommend it to anyone travelling to Niagara Falls.
We had a very pleasant visit and enjoyed high quality food for our wedding anniversary. The waitress was friendly, outgoing and made us feel very welcome with our dog on the patio. However, I nice touch would have been a dessert to share or something like that which other restaurants do when aware about a special occasion.
was in niagra falls for the first time and this restaurant came up on a search . It was a nice walk from the hotel Sheraton On Falls . While my family and I were not sure at first , we were more than pleasantly suprised how DELISH it was . It's a non touristy authentic homey feeling restaurant . My husband loves his chicken parm and the kids had the lasagna and kids mac and cheese . Service was amazing . I would recc this to anyone and to take a great from the touresty traps of the main strip !
Excellent service. Friendly staff. Food was great. Highly recommend the lamb shank!!!
Nice restaurant "off the beaten path". Great food, accompanied by great service.
Excellent service and food! This is a great restaurant and one we always visit when we are in Niagara Falls
Unfortunately, we were disappointed with the service.
It was too late to serve meal for children. So they ate appetizer and got full before main kids meal coming.
Also, the waitress mentioned that she would provide refill of water, but she didn't, even we request again.
It's because she was so busy.
Very friendly staff. Wonderful food. Worth enjoying.
We were visiting from the UK and found u on recommended website for midprice family gluten free family meal. Menu choice was good but it wasnt clear which items were g/free without asking. Fabulous steaks. Best EVER had. However rather ther stodgy looking lasagne with no salad. No desserts were suggested (but to b fair we were full up). Left a bit too long by the waitress between courses. Rather expensive but worth it for the steaks alone.
Food was very good and our waiter was fun and entertaining. Overall great experience!
This is definitely the best kept secret in Niagra Falls. It is not listed on any of the tourist brochures. A charming neighborhood restaurant with excellent food, lovely ambiance and professional staff. It was the best meal we had on our trip.
Our 42nd Anniversary was made special by the wonderful dining experience we had at Sandstone. The service from the greeting to the deserts and after dinner shot of Bailey's was excellent. Our waiter Barry was very attentive to our needs, polite and friendly.
We had the prix fixe meals with delicious crab cake appetizers, fresh and tasty 2nd course salad, a superb North Atlantic Salmon in Lobster Sauce and a New York cheesecake that was to die for. BTW, the house made fresh baked (warm) bread that accompanied the meal was outstanding. Barry recognized our Anniversary with an after dinner drink of Baileys on the house. For a special occasion it would be hard to beat. Wonderful.
This is my second time to Niagara Falls and my second visit to Sandstone Grill. Once again I was not disappointed. My table for six was ready on time and the service was outstanding. Everyone at my table was very happy with the appetizers and the main courses which included salmon, steak and seafood pasta. This restaurant will be on my regular stop each time I'm in the area.
My wife and I had dinner here our first night at Niagara Falls. We chose it, in part, because of the good ratings on Trip Advisor, and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious and the servings were generous. We enjoyed a tasty dessert. The prices were very reasonable, given the restaurant’s location in a resort town at peak season
Awesome meal. Meat cooked to perfection. Way better than Canyon Creek.
All of our food was really delicious. Our waiter did a great job with some food/dessert recommendations. Great place for dinner.
The staff was EXTREMELY nice, and very helpful. We were visiting the area on vacation, and this dinner was the best meal we had the entire week. I highly recommend this establishment to anyone!
