We had a wonderful time! The food was delicious, the server (Kristen) was very attentive without hovering, and everything was delightful!

The Red Coach Inn has an impressive selection of meat, seafood, and vegetarian dishes. The portions are large so it may be good to as for a bag to go. We had Chicken Piccata and Swordfish which was wonderful. The service was great too.

Booth lights too bright and really showed the dust, food was slow and not very hot. Coconut Shrimp app was small with only 4 shrimps and soggy. Both pasta dishes were terrible. Waitress was trying but she was frazzled as they needed more staff for a busy night. Disappointed as we took friends there for dinner as we had been before and enjoyed it. This time was awful and unfortunately we will not return.

We brought my wife here for her birthday dinner and our waitress, Lindsey, was excellent. Very friendly and helpful. Very nice wine list and some decent beers on tap. We were all drinking Scotch for cocktails and their selection was very good. This was our 1st time here even though we've lived in the area all our lives. We will be back for sure. Thank you for a great evening

We stopped for a light lunch on our way back from Niagara Falls, Canada. It’s across the water from the Canadian Falls. It’s a beautiful inn with fantastic service and a wonderful ambiance. The food and wine were also superb! We will be back!

The ambiance at The Red Coach is off the charts. We stopped in on a Sunday night and there were only 2 other tables of guests. We had the window room to ourselves for most of the evening. The smell of the big fireplace was amazing. The Christmas decor is charming. The cedar plank salmon is my favorite! My husband ordered the veal schnitzel and said it was out of this world. I highly recommend The Red Coach. 5 stars!!

The food and ambiance are great here. My only complaint with this reservation was they failed to look at the Open Table information to meet my special request of a fireplace setting even though they called and physically spoke to me three hours before my reservation. When we got there the hostess stated someone came in before us with the same request as a walk in. When I showed her the OT request she simply asked if we wanted to wait till they were finished. To me that is poor service and unacceptable.

I may be one of Red Coach Inn's biggest fans, any opportunity I go there when I am around Niagara Falls. I love everything about it: menu is always good, the ambience is perfect, in summer the patio is nice. It all is good. On a recent lunch there I enjoyed a daily special as well as the classic French onion soup. I love bringing friends and family here for their first times. On a recent lunch outing there I enjoyed Marissa who is a great server and fun to talk to. I always say that Red Coach Inn is a gem: don't change a thing, you're doing it all so well.

We were in the area for my son’s cross country race. The food and service were excellent. I felt it was a little overpriced for the area. We live in NYC vicinity and it felt like we were eating at home, as far as the price. Being fair, both my kids are steak. Ribeye scallops dish was $50 which I feel was crazy and the quality of the meat was not like a steakhouse in the city. Either way we had a great time and the waitress was excellent. We would definitely go again!

It was just OK. Was hoping to get reservations at another steakhouse that evening, but couldn’t, so decided to try Red Coach. My friend ordered a strip steak, snd when it came out, it looked like it was cut in half. A half of strip steak looked very weird on her plate. Myself and other friend had Chicken French, and it was overwhelmingly drenched in lemon. The ambiance was very nice, especially fireplace on a cold evening. We ended up going elsewhere for dessert & after dinner drink as Red Coach was just OK, but not really good enough to stay.

If you like a cozy, historical atmosphere, the Red Coach Inn is for you! Our server, Lindsey, was wonderful! The French onion soup was the perfect way to start our meal. I chose the meatloaf (what can I say? I love it and never make it for myself anymore) and my husband ate every bit of his surf and turf. After we finished, we took advantage of the Inn’s fantastic location and crossed the street to walk down to see the falls. Breathtaking! Highly recommend!

I had the meatloaf entree and the portion was huge! The green beans were perfect, not overcooked and very flavourful. The waitress recommended the pumpkin cheesecake and she was right, delicious.

Nice experience, like an 8. I hate empty glasses and previous course dishes on the table. But service was pleasant and not rushed. Lunch Food was tasty and portions were nice size. Drink glasses are small so expect the need for many refills. I would go back in the future.

The lettuce was wilted
The scallops were not cleaned properly
Much too much pasta and not enough spinach
It was also too cold in the room by the windows. Heat was not on.

Red Carriage Inn has a nice ambiance with lovely views. Service was slow at first, however, once we received our beverages it seemed to move a little more smoothly. Our server was polite and apologetic for the delayed attention.
My only major complaint would be that although the food was delicious we were disappointed that the sides were room temperature.

The service was poor, we waited 20 mins just to be acknowledged by a waitress. I ordered a steak medium and my boyfriend ordered his medium well, my steak came out overcooked and his came out very under done. Atmosphere was nice.

Went to Red Coach during restaurant week. Had a nice meal in an alcove located in the main dining area. Upon arrival we requested one of the numerous empty tables located on the brighter indoor patio, but was told those tables were reserved. Was unaware you could reserve a specific table. This option was not described or listed in the online reservation options menu.

Loved the idea of this old bed and breakfast. The American side of Niagra Falls is sorely lacking in decent places to dine. Thought this would work. It's a little off the beaten path, but not too far. Make reservations, though. My dining partner really liked his meal, mine was. very, very average with the exception of the vanilla raspberry cake. First round of drinks took 30 minutes to arrive. I think the staff might have been overwhelmed. Wine and spirits selections are not great (very moderate selection with no really nice wines). As for the decor, it probably was spectacular back in the day, it just sort of felt dirty and dark. Te curtains on the windows don't look like they have been cleaned since the place was built. Glad w weren't sitting under them. All in all, wasn't a horrible experience, but could have been much better if the service was a little faster and more service oriented (server was very nice, though). Since it was just past season, perhaps it just hasn't been re-womped yet. Try it with hope that it was just an off night.
