Casino Restaurant Recommendations - Niagara and Wheeling

Niagara Fallsview: Go directly to the 'Famous' restaurant, adjacent to the main casino entrance! Huge-mongous portions of really really good food and reasonable prices. Best Pancakes Ever! Even sweeter when you sit down in and ALMOST order at the worlds' most expensive Denny's restaurant, which I was happy to walk out of before my order was taken. (Second most expensive Denny's may be in San Francisco's JapanTown, but I haven't done an exhaustive survey....)

Wheeling - Skip the casino, and go DIRECTLY to Abbey's restaurant and lounge on Wheeling Island! If you're ever driving I-70 this is a strong, strong recommendation. Reasonably priced, super-friendly, and they even cut their own meat and age their own steaks. It might not be Mortons or Ruth's Chris, but well worth a visit. Their ribs are not the Western or St. Louis style, but rather slow-cooked with lots of Rosemary.
