Food and Entertainment


Casino NiagaraAlthough Niagara Falls is filled with great dining options, there's plenty to eat and drink onsite. Lucky's Steakhouse, Market Buffet, Perks Café, and Quench Bar each offer options for every taste. Many people stop by the casino for a few rounds on slots and then sit down to eat at the famous Market Buffet. The food is delicious and compromises of all sorts of cuisines. Do be sure to try their famous Sticky Toffee Pudding.

Casino Niagara offers more than just gambling. Every Wednesday you can catch live tribute rock shows with your favorite artist like Elvis, Johnny Cash, and Garth Brooks. Friday and Saturday nights feature musicians from around the region. You’ll also find special comedy shows or other performances listed on the Casino Niagara website. If you’re ready to listen to some live jams in between rounds at the tables, this is a great casino to head to.



Unfortunately, Casino Niagara offers only casino services and does not double as a hotel. This said, it's surrounded by a large selection of hotels and alternative accommodation in the nearby area. Meaning you can stay a stone's throw away from the casino, and lose no time that could be spent betting and winning jackpots. Although there is no onsite accommodation, we've still rated this section a 5/10 because of the vast number of options within proximity of the casino, and at all budgets.



Casino Niagara is a classic casino that has been overshadowed by many other establishments. Its quintessential charm and ambience is what keeps visitors coming to this timeless masterpiece. This in itself makes Casino Niagara worth a visit. On top of that the casino offers free parking and exclusive scheduled events.
