The Beef Baron Restaurant, Niagara Falls

Read reviews, opinions and comments 

Located across from the Casino Niagara complex at the top of Clifton Hill , this restaurant prides itself on serving meals that beef and oil barons liked to eat—in other words, only the best. And it shows, having won the Family Restaurant of the Year award three times. The decor is also reminiscent of the lordly days of the beef barons with dark wood, high ceilings and formal settings. The dinner menu features broiled NY strip steak, veal Parmigiana, and broiled rack of lamb.

We had the full course meal which allows you to choose an appetizer, a salad, an entree, and dessert from a list. The Prime Rib is superb! The food is absolutely delicious. Our waiter was kind and very helpful. When we go to Niagara Falls, my fiance and I make it a point to have dinner at the Beef Baron.

Although the Beef Baron came highly recommended to my wife and I, we had a horrendous evening there. The ambiance leaves much to be desired, the service was amateurish and the food was terrible.

I ordered stuffed sole and my wife had the prime rib. The fish was bland, and came with a side of soggy vegetables drenched in margarine. My wife's prime rib, ordered medium, came out cold. When I asked our waitress to please bring my wife another plate, she seemed offended and gave me a dirty look! Unbelievable! I complained to the manager after our meal, but she was not receptive to my concerns and did not reduce the bill at all.

This was not a case of a restaurant having an off night. I'd advise you to avoid this establishment, regardless of any recommendations you receive.

I make a trip from cambridge ontario atleast once a yr to have a prime rib dinner at this restaurant
I've never had a bad meal there yet and ive been going there for 15 yrs , service is excellent

I live in the Falls and often visit here to have dinner, I recently came here with my girlfriend and enjoyed a very filling and delicious dinner. I would highly recommend this establishment to all, whether it be a family outting, party, bussiness meeting or date. This restaurant gets Five Sharkheads out of Five.

We found this restaurant to be great. The owner came to our table a few times to enquire about our experience. The waitress was a delight. The food was good and resonably priced. We would recommend the Beef Baron anytime

I have been going here for many years, but now am disappointed with the Beef Baron. The last time I was in there, I had a reservation which should have alerted them, I was profiled and treated rather rudely. I said that I wanted prime rib and was prepared to order off the menue, but the waitress just reeled around and brought the tourist special. At this point I would not go back.

I had the Queen's cut of NY strip with grilled shrimp. My boyfriend had the King's cut with a Canadian to drink.
Comments: My boyfriend and I went for a steak dinner. First, our table almost fell over when we sat down and they almost refused to reseat us. Our steaks were tough and not flavourful. There was no imported beer options except for Corona and Heineken. It's a bit pricier than the Keg and the food was not worth it even though we had a coupon for $14 off our meal. We will never go back.

We ordered a full course dinner with French onion soup, Caesar salad, prime rib with steamed baby carrots & green beans and potatoes and baked Alaska; filet mignon with baked potato; baked lasagna; soda
Comments: My husband, 20-year old daughter and I dined on a Tuesday evening at 6:30. We were immediately and cordially greeted and escorted to a non-booth table, which was as impressively appointed as the booths, and just as private. The full course meal is not only a great value at CAD$31.00, but also delicous. My rare prime rib, as well as my husband's medium filet mignon, were cooked perfectly and tasted as beef should. The vegetables accompanying the prime rib were very fresh, although the saltiness of the prime rib juices flowed onto them and overpowered their natural flavor. The lasagna is prepared by Mama Mia's, a neighboring restaurant around the corner from Beef Baron. It was fresh, not cloyingly cheesy, and contained a healthy amount of meat sauce for those who love to soak bread in it. The baked Alaska was fresh, although the pastry base was not sponge cake, but more a flaky thin shell, which was a little tricky to gracefuly cut with a fork or spoon. The table servers were attentive throughout, unobtrusively refilling water glasses and replenishing depleted sodas immediately and without prompting, inquiring about any needs and about our meal enjoyment. Although our server forgot to deduct from our bill a discount coupon, she quickly and apologetically corrected it. My husband and daughter are not easy people to culinarily please, and my husband is also a harsh critic of substandard service. You will find none of that at The Beef Baron. I would strongly recommend that you visit this wonderful restaurant.

- It was freezing cold in there
- We were seated directly beside a waitress station
- The food took forever
- My medium rare steak was small & overcooked
- Vegetables were cold
- Waitress never once came over to ask us how everything was or if we needed something else
- Waited approx 20 min after our dishes were taken away for the bill
- Need I say more?

We have been to Niagara on several occasions and saw signs for the Beef Baron. It was never convenient to stop in due to our schedules. On our last trip we decided to make a point to be in the area of the Beef Baron around dinner time. Boy, were we disappointed. The food was well below average - we have had better steak at chain buffets. The service was slow and server seemed disintersted until she faked her best "I want a good tip" smile when delivering the check. Ambiance.... hahaha!
