Outdoor raw bar, clams and oysters. fried cheese curds, fish tacos, french fries, etc, pub style food. Sit... read more

What a view! We just love this place. We had a great view of all the boats going up and down the St Lawrence Seaway, the tourist boats, ocean liners, sail boats, etc. In the evening the bolt castle was lit up! The service was great and so was the food. We were two people looking for a casual place... More

Anyone who is familiar with the 1000 Islands knows the spots where you can enjoy a beverage and a burger . . . or whatever food might be the choice of the day . . . I have been going here for years, and because of the new ownership, I expected, amongst other things, consistency . . . what I... More

The food and drinks were awesome. We had the wrap, chicken tenders and onion rings. Loved the view. They have Happy Hour too.

There are lots of mixed reviews for this place which is understandable. Number one, the view is very good. Number two, you are at a causal location that is right on a dock with boats coming and going which is part of the allure. The menu was concise and the food that we had was good. It could be cleaner... More

Husband had Buffalo wrap, I had chicken salad wrap. The beers were cold and tasted great. Loved the French Fries and the service. Our server was Sarah, she was very pleasant. We try to eat lunch out at least once on our two week Thousand Islands vacation. Any time we can eat and look out on the River is a... More

So to all those people who say the place is shabby and dirty where... More

We went here because a friend had fond memoires of going here years ago. Well, apparently things have changed. The place is shabby and dirty. There are open garbage cans in the dining area. Tables and chairs are scattered randomly across decks, not even grouped for sittings. The servers looked and acted as though they had been through a war.... More

Odd that for a water place, there weren't that many fish options on the menu. My kids live for fried calamari and it wasn't even an option. They had shrimp cocktail instead, but 5 large shrimps and not even a shred of vinegairette on the salad for 11$ wasn't the best value. I chose the fish taco that was actually... More

Worst lunch I have had in a long time. Chicken caesar - chicken was overcooked. The salad was never soaking in dressing and I don't think the washed lettuce was ever dried before the dressing was poured on. Didnt' finish it. Friend's hamburger was overcooked, and fries were greasy. Won't be back....
