Good location, view and food

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hosts at the Small Town B&B that we stayed at and was within walking distance. The view was good and the food was great.

The building is directly on the banks of the river. I had eaten here about eight years ago and was back on PEI and decided to go again. The baked haddock with cheese was excellent. Four of the five of us had that. I had a side of home made vegetable and beef soup which was very tasty. The others... More

Walked over from our hotel on the habour boardwalk to this restaurant. Quaint place with a smaller inside eating area and a larger outside eating area looking over the habour. Our meals, supper, was great, medium priced. Our hotel manager gave us this location to eat, great choice.

We stopped here for a quick lunch and enjoyed fresh lobster rolls and salad. Service was quick and definitely with a smile. We chose to sit on the verandah as it was drenched in sunlight on a rather windy and slightly chilly day and the view was just lovely across the water. Shame we couldn't stay to enjoy the desserts...

Montague was our first stop in PEI and our first lobster dinner. We did not have reservations however were seated very quickly. The service was excellent and the staff were very friendly. We both had the full lobster dinner which included an appetizer, main dish, desert and either coffee or tea. The cost of this was very, very reasonable, in... More

Wonderful food. Nor really a view to the water from the windows so wonder how they got the name. It is close to the river and you can see it if you stretch your neck or sit on the nosiy deck near the street. Food is wonderful and beautifully presented.

I stopped in for lunch while on business. It was amazing. I had the seafood chowder which was incredible (warm bun and all) and I also ordered the fish cakes with a side of caesar it was all amazing. The waitress was so friendly I would recommend!

We went to Windows on the Water on a busy Friday night, without a reservation. With only a short wait for a table for four, the staff was as welcoming and accommodating as possible. Service was very good, including taking photos of us. Then came the delicious food. Two of us had the Seafood Bubbly, which is hard to better.... More

We were greeted immediately and seated just as quickly. We sat outside on the patio. The tables are kind of flimsy and a light bump to the table will cause your water glasses to spill over. They should upgrade to some more solid furniture. The food was delicious. The bread rolls were fresh and warm, the almond sole was excellent,... More
