Our friends enjoyed the breakfast and raved about it. $4.25 for an egg with massive servings of toast and chunky home fries are a great bet if you need a wallop of carbs to start your day. The chicken burger at lunch was OK, but it was likely from a pre-frozen batch. The salad with chicken added was also OK... More

The Glen House was not open for lunch so we went up the hill for lunch on our way across the border. Excellent food and great service in a nice setting.

We have been to Smugglers in the past and had very enjoyable meals. This was our first visit in 2015 and will be our last. The menu is at the standard of a lower end burger bar and the presentation was even lower. What a disappointment and an embarrassment as we had a guest from Europe with us.

We've eaten here several times over the summer of 2015 and not once were we disappointed. Service was always quick, friendly , and competent. The food was great, with the burgers easily being one of my top 5 ever! One of course must understand the menu is simplified to easily accommodate the many that can come thru on the cruises....

Great experience, the staff was wonderful food even better. The new management may be a little green but make up for it with the tentative customer service. We will be back again with friends.

You won't be disappointed by the food and views here. The menu is great, atmosphere is great, makes you want to put the keys of your car away, call a taxi and stay a while. If you are a boater then all the more reason to make sure you stop here while visiting the 1000 Islands.

I've already written a review and it notified me it was not posted so here I apologize if it actually shows up twice. We were passing through and came upon this little gem and I'm so glad we did! The view is beautiful the service was great and I loved the food. I don't understand how people could say anything... More
