Sunday brunch/lunch buffet in Niagara Falls?

Is there an reasonably-priced ($20 or less), all-you-can-eat buffet that serves lunch/brunch fare and close to Fallsview Casino Resort? We don't need anything extra-ordinary because I'm guessing most of us will be hung over to say the least. We just need something that's buffet-easy (ie, no deciding, no waiting, same cost, etc).

I've looked at the Grand Buffet in Fallsview Casino but not sure if they offer lunch/brunch stuff - they say it's $22 from 11am to 11pm which leads me to believe that it's all dinner food right from the a.m.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    We've had the lunch/brunch buffet at Fallsview Casino before, it's good, not great, but just our opinion. You should try it if you're looking for a buffet.

    Forgot to add: Sign up for the free VIP card and you get a few dollars off the buffet, so get each person to sign up for the card.

      I was there a few weeks ago. They have more of a Lunch buffet than a Brunch. I think I got there at 1pm and only thing that was Breakfast was a Pouched Egg on a English Muffin in Hollandaise Sauce. Kinda of sucks when you want Pancakes/Waffles and Sausages and you're stuck with Stir-Fry. There has to be a better buffet. In Niagara Falls

          If you get there before noon, they do have some breakfast/brunchy stuff. After noon they start moving that for lunch and dinner items.

          Also the suggestion for the card is a good one, because it also gives you free parking in the self-parking garage at the casino.

            Where are you staying in Niagara Falls. I know the Embassy has a very very good breakfast/brunch which is less than 1/2 a block away from Fallsview.

            The Grand Buffet in Fallsview also if you go closer to the 11 am has more breakfast/brunchy things available. Getting the card saves you a few dollars, but it also gives you free parking in the Fallsview parking lot. All you need to get the card is some ID they can use to verify your age (gov't Issue) and address, the card is free and then they also send you special offers througout the rest of the year.

              Great, thanks smr714! I will definitely look into the Embassy Suites...

        If you do decide to try the Grand Buffet at the Fallsview Casino, here's a tip. Arrive before 11 am, you will only pay $12 for the breakfast price (you pay on your way into the restaurant). That $12 (VIP card price) includes tax and all non-alcoholic beverages, but not tip. There is a card on the table asking that guests stay no longer than 90 minutes. Have as much breakfast type food as you like before 11 am, then they switch over to the lunch foods, including their dessert buffet, so you can see if their lunch offerings interest you, too. Enjoy!
