Popular for mall walkers, especially since the mall “footprint” opens up about an hour before the stores. Several mall coffee shops are also open this early.

The food on the menu for lunch was mouth watering. Nick’s Lake House offers a variety of foods to choose from. Burgers, Fish, Steak, Salads, Pizza and more. No one was disappointed with the choices available. We placed our orders rather quickly as more than half of us are starving artists literally! We get hungry and want to be fed quickly. A few people ordered Grilled Reuben’s, one of us ordered a small personal Pizza, another had an Italian Sausage Sandwich and one of us ordered a burger with fries. I got to splurge on myself a little so I ordered a house spinach salad with sirloin steak medium rare.

While the food has Hawaiian names, it is basically Mexican food, but it is pretty darn good Mexican food. Wahoo’s Fish Taco is a very dinner around me facility. Since it is located on the strand you will mostly see patrons in bikinis and bathing suits, now that is pretty casual.

Also on the menu at the Specialty Sandwich Co. are full platters with haddock or burgers, charcoal-grilled meat sandwiches, Cuban Specialty Subs, Chicken Quesadillas, appetizers, salads, French Bread Pizzas, and Gourmet French Bread Pizzas.

The dining experience starts out with a homemade loaf of bread, and a platter of homemade bruschetta. You don’t have to order it as an appetizer unless you really love it and have to have more, because this is included in the price of your meal. All dinners platters also come with a fresh salad. Then comes the meal. There are so many delicious things to choose from from simple pasta and meatballs to creatively prepared chicken, veal, and seafood platters.

Pasta Pomodoro is a casual Italian dining experience and the prices are reasonable. The service is great and the menu is extensive. Pasta Pomodoro is a definite must if you are interested in a casual authentic Italian dining experience.

The most popular time to see this falls is in summer. A must watch Maid of the Mist can only be seen from April to October. But going in this season may cost you a little bit higher in hotel rates.
