It was a spontaneous decision to go for dinner at Tony Roma’s in Niagara Falls. There are two locations in the city. We decided to visit the one on 5317 Ferry St.
It was a Friday night and not as busy as I would have expected at the restaurant. There was a large free parking lot right around the corner which was nice since it was rainy and cold.
We were greeted by two servers as we entered the revolving doors of the restaurant. Inside was a warm and inviting atmosphere. The décor was very casual with many booths and a few tables. We were lead to a booth that looked out onto the intersection of Dunn and Ferry St with a view of the Skylon Tower.
The waitress greeted us took our drink orders. Many of the items on the menu had pictures which made choosing a meal easier. Everything looked so good! We don’t normally order an appetizer, however the onion loaf looked interesting so we figured we would give the half order a try.
While we were waiting the waitress brought us a warm loaf of bread in a cone shaped dish with a side of garlic butter. This was delicious and a really nice touch.
Within a few minutes, our appetizer arrived. It reminded me of a blooming onion except that it was individual rings of onions in a breaded batter with a barbeque type dipping sauce. The portion was perfect for two people to share. I’m not sure that I would order this again however because it was a little on the greasy side.
Our meals came out in a reasonable amount of time. I ordered the Thai Chicken Salad and Tim ordered the Southwestern Chicken. My salad quite large as you can see, enough for a meal on its own. The chicken was tender and lettuce and carrots were fresh. The salad was tossed in a light dressing which was not spicy but watch out for the sauce drizzled around the plate! Keep a cold drink nearby!
The southwestern chicken was also a large portion. It included a full chicken breast and a choice of two sides. (garlic mashed potatoes and French fries shown in the picture) The chicken came with Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheese and a green onion and tomato topping which made for a nice presentation. Tim asked for no cheddar cheese and the waitress was more then willing to accommodate. This was one thing that I feel set this restaurant apart from others – they were willing to accommodate our needs and made sure we would be happy with our choice. This is especially great for vegetarians or people on restricted diets.
Though the dessert menu looked appealing, we decided not to order any. Neither of us finished our meals and were quite full.
Pricing was inline with other similar restaurants in the area. The bill came to just over $50 for both of us with no alcohol. For the size and quality of the meals I felt this was reasonable.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you are staying in or around Niagara Falls. The service was excellent and the food was good – portions and taste.
