image001A great vacation depends on a number of things, and the memories that you take away from that vacation also rely on many factors. Perhaps it’s a special activity that you’ve never tried before, a treasured memory when your child experiences something new for the first time, or it’s a particularly beautiful sunset over a part of the world that is brand new to you.

However, for some people the best memories of a vacation are of the edible variety.

Food is an integral part of any travel experience. While many memorable travel meals consist of a food that is native to region, or prepared in a style that a country is famous for, sometimes it can be as simple as an expertly prepared, perfectly seasoned, and exceptionally plated steak.

If you’re a carnivore and are planning a visit to Niagara, these are some of the best places to get a perfect steak. This list may also help you choose your hotel in Niagara Falls as well.

Ruth’s Chris

As one of the world’s premier steak house brands, Ruth’s Chris in Niagara Falls never fails to amaze with their simple yet elegant menu and steaks prepared perfectly every time. Located in the Four Points by Sheraton Fallsview Resort, Ruth’s Chris offers a pretty spectacular view of the Falls, and the illumination and fireworks when they’re scheduled.

Ruth’s Chris also offers a luxurious cocktail lounge that is perfect for a pre-dinner drink.

Buchanans Chophouse

Inside the Doubletree Hotel is Buchanans Chophouse. With a menu full of prime cuts of beef that are wonderfully prepared, this restaurant also offers live music on the weekends and a great view of the falls. Seafood and pasta dishes are also on offer, and they have an extensive list of wines that pair perfectly with every meal.

Reservations are definitely recommended for Buchanans, so make yours early to avoid disappointment.

Copacabana Brazilian Steakhouse

A steak lover’s life wouldn’t be complete without a traditional Brazilian barbecue experience. You can spare yourself the ticket to Rio and simply make a reservation at Copacabana during your visit to Niagara Falls. A view of the falls, a large outdoor seating area, live Brazilian entertainment, and perfectly cooked steaks make Copacabana a must on your Niagara itinerary.

As with any restaurant of this caliber, reservations are recommended, especially during high season.
