A hot spot located right on the majestic St Lawrence with views of Calumet. This innovative and delicious restaurant draws you inside with the promise of a culinary treat. The baked goods displayed at the front door are a tantalizing tease of what's to come....Fresh ingredients and attentive wait staff all aim to please. Something for everyone. Dine inside or sit out on the patio and take in the fresh air and views. Bring some treats home to extend the experience! Clayton has to be one of the #1 small town USA Villages and Bella's is in the midst.More

We ate twice there: First time for lunch (hamburger, lobster/devil eggs, tuna salad; second time for breakfast: blueberry pancakes (one of the best we had) , burritos, spinach/feta quiche. All very good. The service was at times not attentive. We bought cakes, bread at their...bakery which were very good.More

We ate at Bella's both mornings while visiting the Thousand Islands. Beautiful cool morning seated right on the St Lawrence River. First impression was impressive - help yourself to a cup of coffee on the way to your table - great idea. The coffee is...some of the best we've had on our four month traveling journey. The cinnamon French Toast was delicious - the blueberry pancakes the next morning the best. This is a perfect place on a beautiful day to start your day! Highly recommend.More

We went for breakfast and were seated immediately on the deck looking out over the river. Beautiful views, and a really great vibe to the place. Quiche was delicious!

We have eaten at Bella’s twice and couldn’t be happier! What beautiful scenery. Throw on the chair in case it gets chilly. Have to say that it is such a brilliant idea to be able to help yourself to coffee as you enter! Staff (...from the hostess station on) could not have been nicer Thanks Bella’sMore

Bella’s is the perfect place to get breakfast or brunch on the Seaway Outdoor dining on the river Charming touches welcome guests such as colorful cloth tablecloths, floral bouquets & blankets at each table for cool mornings The staff is very friendly upbeat & knowledgable...plus… THE FOOD is imaginative & fabulous. We double dare you to walk by the baked goods counter on your way out without taking a bag of goodies! The cookies are spectacular & the fresh baked bread looks & smells very alluring. Our second visit and we so very much enjoy this homey clean atmosphere & the great food!More

While we didn't have a meal here, we did buy some of their delicious bread ~ Honey Wheat and Raisin (packed full of raisins). We would have done sandwiches "to go" but they weren't making them yet ~ too early. Next time we're in the...area, we'll stop by for breakfast or lunch ~ based on family recommendation. Everyone was friendly and helpful.More

High price for average food. Not sure why this place is rated so highly. Silverware was dirty, waitress didn’t know her stuff and food was so-so. Had a much better experience at Koffee Kove. Left a great review for that place.

We were so looking forward to eating dinner here, so we stopped by one morning to make a reservation. They aren't serving dinner anymore!!!! So...we came the next morning for breakfast. Lindsey was our server. The quiche and caramel apple French toast were both great....So was Lindsey!! We ate out , but on the area covered with plastic to stop the wind. We did not need them-but loved the idea of the blankets tossed over chairs for cool mornings. The next day we returned. Lindsey was there again for us. This time we had blueberry pancakes and Corned Beef. We ate outside and were thrilled by the amazing views and the big cargo ships going by. The food-amazing! The service- amazing! The views-spectacular! Highly recommend...and ask for Lindsey!!More

We came back to Bella’s when we came to the Thousand Islands. It is easily the best food and we will go back again before we leave. Their food is fresh. The fish tacos are amazing. The pastries delish.

Yes they closed early because the majority of their staff were students that returned to school. No one wants to work. Government gives out lots of free money. No need.

Honestly, as small and intimate as the seating is here, with river views, etc. I really doubt they could do a group menu. Suggest you call ahead and ask if you could book the patio/courtyard for your group.
