“Food was okay, but”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

Pasta and vegetables were overcooked and soggy. A little pricey for what you get. Service was slow, and the restaurant was only about a quarter full.

“Expected a lot more”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

Their 1000 islands chowder was good but it was all ! The marinara lobster spaghetti should be removed from their menu, it's a huge meal that could easily feed 2 adults but totally tasteless. Spaghetti's were overcooked, sauce tasteless, avoid it at all cost. Fish & chips looked better and this time too much salt on french fries. Only the salmon dish could get the average.
I would not go back again.

“Stay well clear”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

Went to the Lobster Trap for breakfast as part of the deal with the Quality Inn.
As soon as we walked in you got the feeling this was not going to be good.
The main door was locked so we had to enter via the hotel lobby past some very smelly toilets.
The restaurant itself was drab, smelled of old frying oil and was just generally grubby, and this was at 8.00am.
I cant comment on the food, as just the look of the sparse buffet,food that looked well past it's use by date and greasy tables was enough to put us off eating. we grabbed a coffee and left...never to return.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

Amazing food and service. Had steak and seafood, and was wonderful. Portions were big, and everything was fresh. Absolutely recommend, prices were fair and service was great. The restaurant is very appealing and filled with very interesting artifacts. A must do in Gananaoque.
