“Great time on the River”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2011

We own a second home down the road a couple miles. We got up to NY early this weekend and haven't been to Calypso Cay this year yet, so we stopped in for Happy Hour. They had a 1 man band singing and it was perfect! Not to loud where you couldn't have a conversation, but you had to clap after his songs, he was great! We had some drinks and appetizers and 2 thumbs for the scallops wrapped in bacon, super fresh and prob. the best I've ever had! It was nice because it was an older crowd, mellow but a fantastic time!

“Don't waste your money, go across the road to the Waterfront”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2011

The food was terrible, the fish was dry and overcooked. The steak was mostly fat. The prices are too high for the quality of food served. Do yourself a favor and skip this place and go to the Waterfront across the street.

“Great sadwiches.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2011

Calypso Cay had a great view of the river. We enjoyed watching the birds and the woodchuck. The chicken sandwiches and hamburgers are huge. Enough to share and the homemade potato chips are delicious. The waitress came several times to fill our water and to make sure everything was OK. Would recomend Calypso Cay.

“Hit or miss - diappointing lately!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2009

I've been to Calypso Cay numerous times - most recently on 8/10/09. The menu has many items crossed off, as well as prices for all beer.

I tried to order from their wine menu - but they are changing that as well.

We ordered the Lobster Bites appetizer that was on special - $12.99 for 9 bites! It was very tasty - but overpriced.

I've had their burgers in the past - those are yummy!

“Island Paradise alongside a river in Brewerton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2008

Restaurant that promises and delivers a taste of the Caribbean on the Oneida River in Brewerton.

It's FUN! and has delicious food. Go to their web page and they have all kinds of fun events listed. Pull your boat up to the dock and go in, or easily accessible by vehicle. Awesome! It's an island retreat. Burgers, Sandwiches, Seafood, Chicken and Steak. They received a great review from Syracuse's newspaper restaurant reviewer - and she's tough! The atmosphere is island fun! It has a dock to pull up in your boat and go in and enjoy in the air conditioned interior or tables on the deck to enjoy your meal under an umbrella to soak in the weather on a nice day. Nothing nicer than sitting alongside the river having a few drinks and food. Superior service. Also there is dockside pickup - order ahead and pull up to the dock to pick up your order to enjoy out on your boat riding down the river or lake. I highly recommend this - either way you get there - boat or driving. (ample parking)
