“Great Service, Average Food”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Based on Tripadvisor reviews, I chose this restaurant for our anniversary celebration. Honestly, I was a little bit disappointed.

The atmosphere was amazing, and the service was outstanding.

For food, for starters, we ordered cream of mushroom soup, Scallops Rissolé, Escargot Mille-Feuille. For entrées, we ordered Filet Mignon au Bordelaise, and Seafood Poêle.

The soup was super good, and trust me, it was not a typical cream of mushroom soup you drank anywhere else. However, the others were around average. The Scallops Rissolé was good, but I tasted better scallops before. Escargot Mille-Feuille and Filet Mignon au Bordelaise were way to salty. The seafood in Seafood Poêle was not very fresh.

They were reasonable price considering this type of restaurant, and their portion was quite generous.

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This restaurant is certainly worth a drive to Gananoque even in the winter when there is not much else happening. We've been there several times, usually when going to a play, but have recently made trips just for the food - and they have been worth it. We're very familiar with the restaurant scene in Kingston and the Athlone Inn matches the best there at equivalent or lower prices. The dining area is very attractive and the staff and hosts are friendly and welcoming.
