I am a friend of Tony's and last I heard from him he had gotten into a car accident - I haven't heard anything from him since then and was wondering if he is all right - does anyone know anything about where he is and if he is all right? Thank you - Janet

This place has good food at a fair price, but no air coditioning so don't go on a hot day. The food is good, I like the fish and chips or fish sandwich if I go for lunch. Good fishing in this bay.

Swan Bay Beach Club has definitely gone down hill. Locals are not surprised, because this is the owner's deal...he buys, opens, and never maintains any of his properties. It's really a shame because he is certainly not helping the reputation of the Bay. Anyway, I went here after a wine tour this summer and was sorely disappointed. We ordered a... More

I went to the Swan Bay Beach club this summer and will never go back nor would I recommend it. You can access the restaurant by boat boat use caution as the floating docks are a disgrace. Rotten plywood with exposed screws and nails adorn the dock surface. I cant believe they arent concerned about customers falling and tripping. The... More

Been visiting "the Islands" many years and happened upon this place by accident. The sign out front is hard to read when you are traveling at 55mph, but I happened to catch the word restaurant and checked it out. I wish the owners would take advice and work on improving the advertising. What a wonderful surprise! Like most places there... More

This was my second visit to this restaurant. The first was the summer of 2010. We sat outside on the deck and looked at the St. Lawrence River. It was a beautiful evening. The food was not memorable. We visited again this summer (2011) on a cool and cloudy day and ate inside. The interior is dreary as was the... More

We have always wanted to go here while on vacation, so finally made it. Food was just OK, the view of the RIver was outstanding of course. Not well maintained & dock area was loaded with goose poop. Although the owner of this establishment has that reputation of properties not being kept up. We won't be back.

The restaurants in this area in general are not too good. I found this place to be better than most. It is a little hard to find but is on Rt12 near the bridge to Canada. This is not a fancy place and is old like most of the places around the area.It is on the river with plenty of... More

For a nice summer lunch in the Thousand Islands,this is the place. You can eat in or on the covered deck or on the uncovered deck or in side. Eighteen of us went -seven adults and eleven children. We had one server who was absolutely outstanding with both age groups. The weather was sunny and with a nice breeze coming... More

Delightful. Swan Bay Beach Club is tucked down along the St Lawrence River just off Rt 12, just of Rt 81 in Alexandria Bay, NY. This eatery serves fresh perch and cold yeungling that is perfect after a fun day on the river. You can travel in by boat or car. Four types of seating options are available; sit at... More
