great spot to watch boats

Rustic but fun place to watch the boats on the river. Had a great Bloody Mary! Food was also very good.

Waited 45 minutes for sandwiches when they weren't even all that busy, after waiting 15 minutes to be seated and ordering drinks! When we complained to the waitress she just kept making excuses, like they only have a small kitchen, and saying it really wasn't much longer than the usual wait. The food was okay, certainly not worth the wait.... More

First of all the waitress was completely miserable! She should not be in this line of work, Apparently she didn't understand that tips are reflective of her service. Party of 4 just ordered drinks and wings. The wings took about 45 minutes to come out. They were big, but not very good. And I understand this is on the water... More

Depending upon the wait staff, service can be great or VERY disappointing! They need to make sure their waitresses are working off the same "checklist" when providing service. No one should EVER have to ask to silverware and other related items based upon one's order (ie ketchup with French fries). Rethinking my options for future lunches.

We were able to eat right on the floating dock which was very different. The food was fresh and good, but it did take a very long time for it to come. The waitress was nice, and the food was very reasonable.

Service was good and the food was average bar food. But the view was awesome. Nothing to complain about. Probably would go back just for the view since the whole town serves basically the same food and it has the best view in town.

The Pointe is a beautiful location on The St. Lawrence. However, there is no Greeter or method to the madness. I went there last summer, sat down and was not acknowledged. Went back again this summer for the view and once again was not acknowledged or waited on. Cannot comment on the quality of the food because my group never... More

Just what you would expect for bar food at a reasonable price. We sat on the dock and watched boats pull up and diners come up for dinner. Wings, burgers, clams etc.
