When visiting a bay side town, you have to dine by the water

This town has a lot of restaurant to choose from close to the tour boat and docks. The Coleman has a boat docking near by so you can come by water or by foot. The menu is BBQ with their own smoker out front. I would not consider this to be a BBQ that would rival something down south, but... read more

Since under new ownership I feel the quality of food has gone down hill drastically. The service was good but the food was poor. We had a party of 8 and two of them got sick from the food. It's too bad because the location is great. Hopefully they can turn it around.

The staff at Coleman's are always all about service. Even when they are rockin' busy! We had the perch, always my husband's favorite and the pulled pork with homemade chips. The atmosphere is so wonderful with the dining all around the water and town docks.

This place deserves a much higher rating than it has. I was there last week with my wife for dinner. Beautiful location on the river. The food was incredible. You can smell the bbq from a block away. I had the bbq turkey. Beautifully pink from the smoke and ham like in flavor. My wife had a shrimp taco. I... More

Have been to this place every time we are in Alex Bay. The Food is very good and the view of the bay from the outside deck is beautiful.

We visited Coleman's recently and found it to be just marginal. While our server was excellent the hostess who seated us seemed put out and was not too friendly (this was at 2:30 on a Saturday when they were fairly quiet, so it's not as if she was overwhelmed with diners). I had a pulled pork sandwich and while the... More

On May 9th, after a lovely 2-nations trip with Uncle Sam Boat Tours, hot and hungry we went to this restaurant. It was around 4 pm, so it was not busy. I asked to be seated at a shady table, explaining to the hostess that we were very hot from the cruise (it was very sunny and we did not... More

We found out this restaurant opened under a new name and we were anxious to try it. The old Flagship was a real disappointment after the ownership changed. The new place however is definitely a breath of fresh air. We were greeted by one of the owners who happened to be the same person who took care of us. After... More

Just an average joint with plain old food that you can get anywhere. These region of the country is not really known for its culinary prowess. But the area has a ton to offer otherwise.

Casual, waterside dining at the James Street Dock. What better way to experience waterfront dining than to sit amongst the docks in this bustling resort community. The menu offers something for everyone, although when the smoker is fired up, it's hard to resist ordering some BBQ. A favorite with boaters and locals alike.
