Nice find

We had dinner here on our first night in Gan. Nice restaurant with a cosy atmosphere, service was great, and we very much enjoyed our potato skins!

This was a very pleasant surprise we did not expect to find on our stop in the 1000 islands area! Nice assortment of beer, excellent pub grub and a cozy atmosphere.

Service was really good. Staff was very attentive and the food eaten was great! Next time around I will definitely be trying the fish and chips. The burger I had was very good!

Nice atmosphere with a great food and a decent selection of regional craft beers. You can usually catch some live music on the weekend. You will find the menu is a little different than most pubs with an interesting variety and the desserts are to die for.

After reading reviews of this pub, I decided to give it a try. Big mistake! I opted to have the special Open Face Roast Beef sandwich. The pieces of beef were tough, the bun was rock-hard, the canned peas were cold and so was the gravy. I couldn't leave fast enough.

Your standard English style pub, unfortunately, the pub fare was less than standard. Had the Steak and Ale pie: would not have it again. The wife had the Main Street burger: same story. Can't comment on the beers, because we went for lunch and didn't have any. I would give it 1 star, but the service was good, and the... More

We had lunch at this restaurant after a boat cruise on the river. Although we had just the large (and superb) spinach salads, we noted that there are several tempting items on the menu that we hope to try on a future visit to Gananoque. I highly recommend this restaurant to any visitor to this town.

Chicken wings are one of those thing that are difficult to get right. The wings here were great. Just the right amount of batter to make them crispy but not "bready". The burger was a good size and they did not skimp on the toppings. The beer was good, and a good selection of craft beers on tap. As an... More
