We were excited to go here... Drinks were great. Service was very attentive and good. The food was just OK. Very good quality ingredients, but a few major issues. The menu had several items that were not available (this I can totally understand and did...not take away but worth mentioning). The menu misrepresents many of the dishes - crispy squid... apparently is fried calamari (lol); and shrimp scampi... apparently is shrimp potato soup, without even any garlic or salt (we asked for salt to try to save the dish). Our takeaway: great drinks, good service, just ok food and avoid the seafood (the meat was way better).More

We stopped in on Sunday afternoon and enjoyed a sidewalk table in the autumn sun. It was tough choosing among the many menu selections. Everything we had was fantastic. Highly recommend.

Dinner here tonight for the first time. Our server Tony was professional and attentive. Our dinners were excellent - pumpkin bisque soup, shrimp scampi, pork loin and apple cobbler ala mode. Highly recommend.

I have reviewed this place before, but in this CoVD era, I want to proclaim that they have not lost their touch. We had early dinner on Sinday and the food was excellent :our favorites, the foie gras, the lamb lollipops, the kale salad and...the wine. The new to us double lobster tail was also a regal. Cozy place and easy going. I wish them to weather the storm.More

The location is right by the river so you are paying for the views. The food was extremely satisfying and the staff was great! The cocktails were strong and well made. I highly recommend the Tuna stack and the fish and chips. Everything was cooked...perfectly and the fried were out of this world!!More

In this current climate it is difficult to find a perfect outside dining area with social distancing, attentive staff and excellent food. We had the lime mussels,Bronzino fish and side of fries. All the food was well cooked and delicious, the fries were to die...for. Highly recommended if visiting Kingston, after driving around the old town head to the Waterfront for historical look at the river and enjoy the restaurant.More

Being COVID-19 cautious and adventuring first time to lovely Kingston, we sought an excellent restaurant with quality outdoor dining and chose the perfect combination in Ship to Shore restaurant. We were traveling with another couple and the staff was very accommodating ensuring that we could...sit at two tables for two but socially distant yet close enough for conversation. Not only was the ambience perfect, but every element of the food was as well. It is not often that I give a five circle rating. However this one is very well deserved… Next time I’m in Kingston I will definitely seek to dine here again. We have already recommended this restaurant to friends of ours who are going to be in the area this week…More

Delicious food and reasonable service. Would be even better if they remember to sanitise chairs including seat backs which people touch

There are docks within a few hundred feet where you can get out of a kayak. You could then walk to many restaurants in the area, including Ship to Shore. I do not know if there is a secure place to store your kayak... More
