Open every day for breakfast and lunch from 6am until 2pm.

A friend suggested this place to us. They had previously suggested a place that had 50 cent wings on Tuesdays and we had a great time when we went with them. I took their suggestion and went to the Sunset for breakfast recently. The parking lot was almost full but there was a handicapped space available. When we walked in, it reminded me of "Cheers" where everyone knew everyone else in the place. Everyone was saying hi to each other and asking about their family etc.

There were about 12 tables and additional seating at the counter. One of the servers was seated at the counter and was having a conversation with an older gentleman. We seated ourselves at a corner table so I could observe. The server came over, gave us our menus and took our drink order. My wife just had water and I had a Pepsi for 2.09. She left and started stacking the Styrofoam "to go" containers on a shelf.

She came back 15 minutes later to take our order. I had a breakfast sandwich which was a sausage patty, fried egg and American cheese on English muffin for 3.59. When this arrived, 15 minutes later, it was a mess. The top of the sandwich had slid off so far it was touching the plate. The muffin was over toasted and black around the edges. I also had a side of "home fries" for 1.79. These seemed to be just boiled potatoes and did not look or taste fried. They lacked any flavor and needed a liberal coating of salt and pepper.

My wife had 2 poached eggs on toast for 6.99. She had one of the eggs on one of the pieces of toast and the other one on the side. The toast the egg was on was burnt. This came with an order of "home fries" on the side. Just like mine, they seemed to be boiled potatoes.

She did like the blackberry jelly in the small individual packages because you don't often find this. Total cost for breakfast came to 11.73 plus tax and tip. Seeing as we had to wait 30 minutes to get any food on our table, the tasteless potatoes, messy plating and burnt food, they only get a 6.5 out of 10. I don't think we will be back.

Lake Effect Artisan Ice Cream

We are a cool little artisan ice cream shop that specializes in amazing ice cream in flavors that will astound you.

Reviewed By arwerther - Rochester, NY

After completing the Lockport Cavern tour, we stopped here for a snack. Amazing place - beautiful building, friendly staff and phenomenal ice cream! Didn't expect this "artisanal" ice cream parlor to be as good as it was! We thoroughly enjoyed our hot chocolate, peanut butter, cookies and cream and glazed donut scoops. Decadent and unique, we will definitely visit again if we are in the area.

Shamus Restaurant

Reviewed By Clubcats3

We recently heard that Shamus did a large renovation. As a married couple with two kids, we don't get out to each much but love Shamus when we can. We took the kids and my parents with us this time. The new, fresh look was great. Just the kick it needed to stay one of our favorite restaurants. The owner was friendly and kind to our children. Kids menu had a good selection. We all enjoyed our meals. The scallop appetizer with caramelized onions was my favorite.

Canalside Inn

Reviewed By Larry W - Rochester, New York

A few of us stopped by here again this past week, and I must say that nothing really ever changes in this small bar, located in the small town of Gasport. For its location, Canalside is a nice little place, with about half the space (and most of the customers) more interested in the drinks than the food. The menu is mainly sandwiches, wings and other bar food, with a single bartender out front and a chef in the kitchen. While 95% of the bar customers drink beer, they will mix you up almost anything you desire...they're pretty good at it!

By the way, be careful leaving the place. For people not familiar with this little town, the traffic light at the corner can be a little tricky. Especially after a few mugs of your favorite beer!

One Eyed Jacks

Reviewed By rodney01 - st. catharines

We were looking forward to this and our expectations were only heightened after smelling the wonderful aroma of smoking meat in the parking lot. The meal did not disappoint. Generous portions cooked to perfection. The brisket was juicy and melting tender. The BBQ sauces were good and the service fast and friendly. An all around good time.

Went here for dinner with family. I was a little disappointed. One of our meals, the pork chop was still raw inside and no response from management. I didn't expect a free meal, I never do. I just wanted management to acknowledge the problem and at least apologize. Its a small town restaurant that reopened recently with same owners. The prices are something you would see in the city or tourist area. I don't think it will make it based on that. its unfortunate because it used to be one of our favorite restaurants.

Becker Farms and Vizcarra Vineyards

Reviewed By Lori T - Clarence, United States

Becker Farms is a fall favorite with so many activities going on simultaneously, and on this particular Saturday in September it lived up to this statement. Looking for a fall-type activity such as picking apples, we decided to go to Becker Farms in Gasport which is actually not too long of a drive, and when we arrived we knew that we were in for a treat as we noticed two guides at both entryways directing traffic. We accidently drove to the parking area closer to the entryway and were asked if we were attending one of the two weddings that were taking place that day to which we answered “no”. We were told to park at the lot that was toward the back of the property (really not too far from the Becker campus) and while we were accessing this lot we passed many assorted small animals that make up their fairly large petting zoo. There were a lot of neatly parked cars all through the open country acreage and we luckily found a spot where someone had just left from their visit. Also, since it was mid-afternoon we passed by a lot of people going out to their cars as we walked toward our destination. How do I describe that there were “a lot of simultaneous activities going on” at Becker Farms that day? Let me list what we encountered: petting zoo, two impending outdoor weddings with outdoor seating prepared along with the ceremonial arches and reception set-ups (tables and linens) in the covered and partially sided spaces; a chicken barbecue for $11.00 with individuals and families enjoying their meals consuming their meals all over the place at scattered tables and chairs throughout the complex and at benches and tables under a large tent; two singers performing on a stage past the tent; the pub known as Becker Brewing Co. which we entered to find a lot of people at the bar and tables, and scattered throughout enjoying food and beverage; a Wine Bar with a lot of patrons socializing where we decided to order Cherry Almond Cider (incredibly delicious); a long line of people waiting for freshly-made donuts (options such as cinnamon, powdered sugar) and those who we saw eating their donuts said the well worth the wait; a long line for picking apples starting at $5.00/ bag to obtain a tractor ride to the apple orchard (we did this and it was fun); and a multi-leveled gift shop with baked goods, hand scooped ice cream, homemade fudge (we bought samples of four different types of fudge-delicious) and candy, packaged foods and assorted retail gift items, and an area to purchase pumpkins. The well-maintained accessible restrooms are located in the Pub and Winery and there were plenty of stalls. In summary, all I can say is that if you are looking for something to do where there are a lot of choices for fun, Becker Farms is the way to go. This destination is great for families with children, but it is actually great for all ages. I would also check out their website for upcoming events.

Aguacates Authentic Mexican Restaurant

We offer the best authentic Mexican food in the area. We are family friendly and a family run local business. Stop in for dinner you will be glad you did.

Reviewed By JuneNY

I had been here a couple of times before and went again today with seven friends. Service was prompt, efficient and friendly. Everyone was well satisfied with their lunches off of the lunch menu. Prices are VERY reasonable. The decor is interesting and colorful. They certainly do not skimp on the size of the portions. I had the chicken chimichanga and it was delicious! I think this may be the best Mexican restaurant I have eaten at.
