For over 30 years, the gigantic blue whale on the roof of Old Man River has been a recognizable symbol of summers arrival on the Niagara Street waterfront. But Old Man River is more than just a seasonal restaurant for many families throughout Western New York and Southern Ontario, it is a dining destination.
When you arrive you will enjoy the clean, fun, casual atmosphere. You will be treated to a spectacular view of Niawanda Park and the Mighty Niagara River from our indoor and outdoor patio decks.
Each year, Old Man River attracts people who are hungry for all the local favorites: Sahlens hot dogs, specialty Black Angus burgers, Italian sausage, our famous sweet potato fries, and of course, ice cream. Have you ever tried our famous Bunny Dog? Its a marinated, grilled carrot, served on a hot dog roll with all your favorite fixings. (Trust us its good!)
