Menu Venue is Western New York's #1 Online Dining Guide Dedicated to Local Independent Restaurants!

How many times have you found yourself saying, let’s go out for dinner, where should we go?  Or, it’s a beautiful summer night and the kids are gone. What better way to relax than having dinner by the waterfront, but where?  Grab your phone or fire up your computer and go to Menu Venue.


Menu Venue, presented by Local Restaurant Week, allows diners to search on whatever it is they are looking for. Whether, it’s where to go for Sunday Brunch?  Or, who has an outdoor patio?  Simply type it in the iwonder search and Menu Venue will provide you with a list of locally owned WNY restaurants to choose from.  Diners will always know where the closest restaurant is no matter where they are by selecting Near me Now.  Up early or out late? Select Kitchen Open Now, and never worry about arriving at a restaurant only to find it closed. 


Still stumped on what to do, or where to go? Try one of Menu Venue’s Fun Lists, Like WNY Roof Top Bars, or Worth the Drive, for a dining adventure.  Feast your eyes on Menu Venue’s appetite enticing videos, giving you a closer look into various WNY featured restaurants, or try one the of the newly opened local restaurants featured in our Restaurant News section. No matter what dining experience you are looking for Menu Venue will help you find the perfect local restaurant.


There are certainly other dining guides out there, but Menu Venue is the only one dedicated to WNY’s local independent restaurants! These restaurants play a vital role in contributing to our cultural identity and regional economy. Profits from each dollar spent at these local restaurants stay right here in WNY and help to make our city stronger and better.
