We ate here on the deck after a motor boat ride from Wellesley Island, NY. It was a beautiful summer evening in July and the view, the sunset and the evening were magical. Our waitress was helpful and funny so that started things off right. I had a stuffed chicken with red and yellow beets as the vegetable side. It was delicious! Our friends all enjoyed their meals as well. We had two bottles of wine for 6 people and split the bill in half--it was around $100.00 US which was very fair.

We ate here on a couple of occasions, the menu is top class and the food quality outstanding. Mike, the owner, is a great guy and his staff, and regulars, are friendly and welcoming. If you are in the area don't even hesitate just get yourself down there and enjoy, the views from the dining area, particularly at sunset, are a must see.

We've dined here a few times and reckon the owners have nailed it as far as ambience and cuisine goes. A fantastic riverside setting indoors or out on the deck and a broad spectrum menu. The causalness is perfect for summertime being part bistro part pub and the service is attentive and excellent. My wife is particularly fond of Hoagy's Rack of Lamb, "the best rack of lamb I've had outside of Australia or New Zealnd" she's quoted as saying and she should know... she's Australian! We operate an B&B and send many guests the Smuggler's and without exception they all come back raving! Keep up the good work lads!

Perhaps this restaurant doesn't have the best food on the St. Lawrence (although it has perfectly fine food) but I think it definitely has the most beautiful view you're likely to experience from a restaurant's deck. My husband and a couple of friends who live in Gananoque went to Smuggler's Cove for my birthday dinner - the appetizers were huge (and tasty), the entrees were huge (and tasty) and the friendly and very professional waitress - who overheard it was a birthday celebration - treated us to dessert (which was delicious). But the view from the deck was probably the best part of the evening. We had to retreat to the pub-style interior, which is sort of dark and gloomy, because of the mosquitoes which descended at dusk, but we were compensated with very pleasant live entertainment.

We don't find ourselves east of Gananoque too often, but the next time we do, we'll stop by here for a drink out on the deck if we can. Our dinner was $102 with tip and tax - we both had an appetizer (which probably would have been sufficient), I had a glass of wine and we both had entrees and coffee afterwards. We felt it was good value.
