The former Tony Roma’s at the corner of Ferry St and Ellen Ave, which turned into Pip’s City Diner, is now going to reopen as Chuck’s Roadhouse Bar and Grill. I’ve never heard of it before, but apparently it is a chain.
Back in June I posted about the new attraction that is going in where Brick City was located. As you may recall, that building was torn down and it is an empty lot right now. The lot is fenced off and there are signs up showing the name of the attraction and that it is opening soon. Well, here we are at the end of the summer, and nothing has been done yet.
I was surprised to see that they’ve even had leaflets available talking about the new attraction. I would assume it will be open for next year, but only time will tell.
You can download a PDF of the Big Top leaflet as well.
They have done a lot of work on the old Capri Restaurant building. It’s hard to believe it is the same place! I don’t know when they will be opening, but it will be very soon. Virtually everything on the outside and inside look done.
Not a huge surprise here as this Dave & Busters has been discussed on here for several months now. It says it should be completed in about 3 weeks, can’t wait to see the sign go up!
From the Niagara Falls Review
A $15-million restaurant complex under construction on Clifton Hill is quickly taking shape.
The iconic street will soon be the home of a new Dave & Buster’s Restaurant and Amusement Centre, with a second one planned for the Fallsview area next year.
“It will be truly unique and different from anything in the area,” said Wayne Thomson, spokesman for the Fallsview Group.
Dave & Buster’s is an American franchise that has proven popular in the U. S. There is only one in Canada, located in Toronto.
The property, at the corner of Oneida Lane on Clifton Hill, once housed the former Pilgrim Restaurant. It was purchased by Carmen Menechella of the Fallsview Group, representing a $15-million investment.
The original plan was to renovate the existing structure, but it was in poor condition. Instead, the owners constructed a new three-storey building.
“It’s a total entertainment destination,” said Thomson, noting it will have something for the entire family.
He said it’s the kind of place where a family could attend a Christmas or birthday party, and while one parent sat in the sports bar with about 40 large-screen televisions, the children could play billiards, shuffleboard, basketball or all kinds of electronic video games.
“It will have everything you can think of … It’s totally unique,” said Thomson.
It’s expected the new facility will open in about three weeks.
