We will be in Niagara Falls at the end of July and will spend the last day in Marineland.
Does anyone have any info about the food there or had any good experiences eating there with peanut/treenut/legueme allergies?
Thanks for your help.

We were there last summer and did not eat in Marineland. There is a McDonald's a few minutes away so we left the park to eat and came back. Also, we packed snacks in a cooler...I'm sure you could pack a lunch too. (You could try emailing them about the food) Have a great time!

Hi there,

We went last year and we brought a little cooler with snacks and fruit for the day and a big cooler (for a picnic) with lunch. We didn't even bother going in the food section. The kids had an amazing time. Lots to do....have fun!

Hello - I live in Niagara area, and although I don't have those specific allergies, there are many restaurants in the area really aware of such. Are you staying locally?

Thanks for the info.
Yes we will be staying in a hotel on Clifton Hills for 4 days.
If you know of any safe family oriented restaurants for PA/TNA please let me know.

Last summer we went to marineland. We packed a cooler and went and ate by the car. I have no idea whether or not we could have brought it into the park -- we didn't want to. We did bring in a small cooler with snacks and drinks for the day and we had no problem bring that in.

There are a few places in the area that are probably really aware of allergies because they deal with them so often - namely Rainforest Cafe and Outback Steakhouse. But because it's a peanut allergy, I can't be certain. There is a Zehr's in the area, if that helps - because they have a good natural food section and good produce.

Hi mtlmom -- when we're looking to travel outside of our "comfort zone", what I do is do a search on the web with "city and province name, restaurants" and usually get some good hits to start my search with. Then I look for the larger chains that I know I, and others on this forum have reported good experiences with.
So I was able to come across this link for you: http://www.niagarafallslive.com/Niagara ... urants.htm
And just doing a quick browse, it shows that Niagara Falls has:
-- East Side Mario's
-- Boston Pizza
-- The Keg
-- Outback Steakhouse
-- Swiss Chalet Chicken and Ribs
Take a look at our "dining out" thread and you'll see people's comments about these chains (at least).
I hope you have a great time on your trip!

Since we don't have Swiss Chalet restaurants in Quebec, I think we will at least try that one.
Thanks for all the good advice, we don't eat out at many restaurants the way we once did.

I agree with ethansmom about The Keg. Go to the one on the 9th floor of the Embassy Suites, not the one in the Courtyard Marriott. It is much nicer. Valet parking is free at the Embassy Suites hotel for those dining at The Keg.

We also had a good experience at the Hard Rock Cafe. We mentioned our son's allergy to nuts and peanuts and the waitress went to speak to the kitchen staff. They decided to replace the burger in the child's meal (at no extra cost) with an adult burger which is 100% beef. Apparently, the child's burger has some fillers which are probably not peanut/nut based but they replaced it just in case.
