4 of us went, 3 of left saying "meh". Service was quite good - pleasant, attentive and efficient. But the food reads better than it delivers. Not sure why. This was our second experience in a row like this. In years past, we'd had better luck there.

We ate at Ship to Shore after a lovely afternoon sail with Tivoli Sailing Company. We got there at 5:00 PM, which was just in time to snag a window table. Any later and we would have been iat a very noisy back table. Good food and service though!

I remember dining here 5 or 6 years ago and thought the food and service were outstanding. Sadly, that hasn't been my experience the last two visits. The food is still good, but nothing special that you can't get at most restaurants. But here you are paying New York City prices. The service for the most part was good, but... More

My wife and I were in Kingston on a getaway and the reviews and our inn keeper suggested this place for a good dinner. The place had old school charm and we decided to forego the outdoor seating despite the wonderful weather and enjoy the ambiance of the dining room. We had a the sausage and cheese plate as an...

We went to Ship to Shore to celebrate our anniversary and arrived for dinner at 7. We were seated immediately but it took quite some time before our waiter came to our table to take our drink & food order. We were about to ask if there was a waiter for our table when he finally arrived. It appeared that... More

Had dinner here while on an eight week boat trip. Quality lamb lollipop appetizer and very good entrees. Service was impeccable. That kind where the waiter magically appears with what you need before asking and doesn't bother you otherwise. Four stars versus five because five stars is reserved in my mind for amazing food. But I highly recommend the place.

You can never go wrong with a dinner from Ship to Shore. The food is perfectly portioned (you may even have leftovers). I recently went there and had the BBQ chicken Mac and cheese and is was spectacular. It is an ala carte restaurant so any sides or extra will cost money. For a deal check out the burger and... More

Big bar crowd, good food but over priced, door was open & flies kept landing on our food. Server was sweet but couldn't get back to our table because too busy. They probably need more servers. We tried it again with the same experience. We were given a gift certificate & tried it again much earlier in evening but had... More

Great restaurant for food and service. We sat down right after a large party and were concerned our food would take forever but everything came out quickly and right as promised. The tuna stack is one of the best appetizers and tastes fresh and spicy. We've had a great meal everytime and highly recommend ship to shore for any meal.

The food was very well prepared. The service was very good for a crowded evening. The noise levels were a bit high, but that is expected on a crowded evening.
