Somewhat dubious -- but nonetheless popular -- opinion holds that Burger King actually ranks as one of the top spots to eat in Niagara Falls, a gloriously trashy casino town and the self-proclaimed "Honeymoon Capital of the World." Pick up your payday loan, head to the blackjack table, and receive your Niagara Falls honeymoon certificate all in one trip! It also happens to be home to the most powerful waterfall in North America. But before resigning yourself to a well-reviewed fast-food establishment, check out this shortlist of tolerable restaurants instead:

You’re feeling rich after winning big at the slots, and are ready to start living that @champagnepapi lifestyle. AG is your first stop in Niagara Falls before you take out the 6ix. Its name is a nod to the abbreviation for silver on the periodic table, but this outpost of farm-to-table dining in Niagara Falls deserves a gold star. The menu is sophisticated, made with fresh ingredients grown on the AG farm, and inspired by the surrounding wine country of Niagara Falls’ classy older sister, Niagara-on-the-Lake.

If you have an English grandmother and need a restaurant the two of you can both agree on, look no further than the Queen Charlotte Tea Room: a warm and doting heaven of tea, floral wallpaper, and doilies. Staff members are sweet and attentive in their white frilly aprons; Linda and Roger (the warm and friendly owners) make all the desserts from scratch; and your tea of choice will undoubtedly come in a plush, pink tea cozy. If your stomach is larger than a side plate, traditional English pub food is on offer, including bangers & mash, mushy peas, and good ol’ fish & chips.
