Nicer than most eating spots in town.

Enjoy outdoor dining on the deck or in licensed dining room. Upscale choices on the menu that feature local specialties. Famous for their home made bread pudding that is generous enough for two to share.

The meals that my husband and I ordered were very good. The restaurant was crowded, so we were given seating upstairs. No view. Too warm.

We had dinner at this restaurant while staying at a near by property. The setting is in an older home with a large wrap-around wooden deck, that uniquely incorporates two huge silver maple trees into the structure! The views are very nice, but the restaurant is also located right next to the 'main drag' of Montague, so if you were... More

The watermelon garnish on my daughter's plate was spoiled, as were the clementines on my salad. I put them aside and tried to enjoy my food with the view, then found slimy lettuce in the bottom of the bowl. Don't let the nice view fool you, avoid this place.

They claim to have fantastic seafood chowder and Idid indeed find it delicious! Rich, creamy and chock full of seafood - my favourite by far. The scallop and mandarin salad was also great - light and yet filling. The steak quesadilla was also devoured with glee. Service was good and the desserts looked hefty but we didn't feel like we...

Overall, Windows is a pleasant dining experience; the setting is lovely, service is competent, and prices are reasonable. Food is good, but not great. Whatever you do, avoid the salmon. For years, Windows has been serving cheap, frozen salmon, obviously to cut costs, but really, it is tasteless and the consistency is poor. I thought they'd smartened up, but last... More

We passed through Montague when we were driving from Souris to Murray's Harbour, and just had to swing back to see if there was somewhere to eat, and found tis lovely place. Its built like an extended veranda on a family home, and very well placed for a view of the water. It was a touch chilly so we did... More

This restaurant has a veranda overlooking the river and a beautiful tree for shade. The waitress was lovely and extremely knowledgeable about the food and surrounding area. The food was nicely presented and tasty but we thought a tiny bit overpriced. The veranda chairs and tables could have been better than plastic. We enjoyed the experience and would go again... More

This lovely restaurant overlooking the water in Montague, PEI is charming. The staff are very polite and willing to share the history of the restaurant. The food is elegantly served and everything we tried on the menu was delicious. Prices are reasonable. It was such a nice experience the first time we were there that we went back for a... More

An ideal setting and a great meal. On our arrival the staff went out of their way welcoming us. The atmosphere of this fine waterside restaurant is very warm and inviting.. The fish cakes served with a salad are a must. The service was prompt and very efficient. Will surely return on our next visit to the area.
