We walked around the corner from our hotel to have what we hoped would be a yummy BBQ dinner. Since I rarely finish a meal we split a full rack of ribs. I ordered a salad with Thousand Island dressing of course, hubby had the roasted corn chowder which could have been hotter (temperature not spice). The ribs came out... More

This place has a limited menu, very carnivore oriented. However the smoked ribs were better than the dinosaur. Loved the Coleman barbecue sauce. The fresh caught blackened perch was good as well. The bar disappointed a bit as the server didn't know what a daquiri was and that was a craving. View from deck made up for any faults.

Went up to Alexandria Bay for the day with my wife, son and his friend. Before heading back home we stopped at Coleman's. The location was nice. They definitely need more people working. We waited to be seated for about 10 minutes and waited another 15 just to order. The food we ordered wasn't so good. My wife and kids... More

My first visit to Alexandria Bay was highlighted by enjoying a sunset meal on the waterfront. This is a popular hangout as people arrive by water and by land. There was a great rocking band playing out front on the street, as street festivals happen nearly every weekend. The view is SPECTACULAR, so get there early to grab a prized... More

Great location, plenty of cold libations for everyone. Wait staff was excellent, quick to get our table of 10 during lunch time. Very attentive and personable. Most of us ordered beef on weck, which should really have been listing a beef au jus. Rolls just did not cut it. Would definitely return again though.

This place is an annual favorite. The pulled pork quesadilla is still phenomenal... Good and bitey, so avoid if you don't care for spicy stuff. It was pleasant talking with the wait staff, and the owner comes around to personally check on each table. Fun atmosphere. Eat outside, because it's fun watching all the boats come and go.

This is a great location with the patio right on the water surrounded by boats. What a wonderful view. Two of our group have the Turkey Sandwich I had a bite and it was delicious and very large. Included was their homemade potato chips. One of our group had the Pulled Pork, She said it was not only delicious but... More

I had the bbq pork quesadilla. It was fantastic and a huge portion for the price! A friend I was with had the burger and it looked amazing on a fresh roll! Our waitress was friendly. A great trip to the bay!
