“a long waiting time, for just "regular food"”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2012

The lively deck is very well situated, on the waterfront and the waiters are trying all what they can to hide the unexpected mess that must happen in the kitchen. After 15 minutes of waiting with drinks, the waiter came to tell us that there will be a 45 minutes waiting time for the food. Eventhough the location was great, 45 minutes seemed very long, especially when mosquitos started to attack us like B52s ;-). At last, when the food came in, I have to say it was nothing special for the price : we had salmon wrap (my daughter liked it), prawns and scallops skewers (the dressing didn't have a good taste at all), chicken (nothing special) and seafood linguini (prawns had no taste, clams were like gums).
We also had breakfast there (included in the hotel booking) and the same thing happened : a very long time waiting, to hear then that our choice was not available anymore.
The cleanliness is also something they should look at, the general aspect of the deck is not their best commercial (many spider webs all around...)
Time to change guys, or you will loose a lot of customers !

“Beautiful location.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2012

The food was good overall. The breakfast delicious and good selection. For dinner, had a prime rib buffet but had to carry our food through the hotel lobby as the 2 restaurants in the hotel weren't co-ordinated in offering the buffet. Just before the prime rib came we had to go get our potatoes and vegetables and took dessert at that time as the supply was depleted and could be none left by the time we finished our meal.

Perfect food & wonderful service. Lively deck, though the mosquitoes can b a bit much. Very accommodating in terms of special requests. Incomparable sunsets. Look forward to returning.

“AWESOME!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2011

We dined here with friends prior to attending a show at the Thousand Islands Playhouse. We were all very impressed. The food was all very tasty. We shared appetizers and we all had the stuffed pork and it was to kill for. The service was friendly, helpful, and prompt. Our only complaint would be that we wanted draft beer before dinner and we were told that they did not have any available despite the fact that Muskie Jakes is right next door (in the same hotel). That's a minor issue, really, and the whole evening was excellent.
