My wife and I were touring the area and came across this restaurant by chance. Located on a street adjacent to a landing area for tour boats, the restaurant has a view of the marina and the St Lawrence seaway. Within easy walking distance are views of the many islands and residences including one of the many castles that reside... More

The Burgers are gourmet and you get a very generous portion for your meal. Another member of our group ordered the Chicken Parmesan and it... More

We ate dinner here. The service was a bit slow, our food was mixed ...some was good others were okay. The burger I had and the homemade chips were good. The Rueben my daughters had lacked enough 1000 island dressing and could have had more meat for the price. The sweet potato portion my friend had was $2 extra and... More

After the boat ride, this was a good place to rest and have a good meal. Nice people and just as good views. Food was very good and reasonable.

I ordered Perch for dinner and received a huge portion but it was heavily coated and deep fried. Not what I expected. My husband ordered ribs and said they were very good. Friendly attentive service.

Loved this restaurant. First it was affiliated with the hotel we stayed at. But mostly, we had breakfast and dinner there and both were excellent, and the service was great.

My husband and I ate dinner here 4 times during our recent stay. Not only was it super-convenient to our hotel, Captain Thomson's, which is right across the street, but the food was absolutely delicious. I had the turkey dinner, which was a Sunday special, complete with mashed potatoes, stuffing, string beans and gravy. The turkey was all white meat,... More
