This is a great restaurant for causal dining and good BBQ while looking over the St. Lawrence River. You can come by car or boat as there is docking available.

Coleman's is one of our all time favorites for lunch while in the 1000 Islands and we've been regular costumers there for about 10 years! It is conveniently located at the end of the public docks in Alexandria Bay and has its own dockage as well. The atmosphere is always fun and you have a great view towards the main... More

This is hands down THE WORST restaurant experience I have ever had in my entire life. My husband and I chose this restaurant while on vacation for its amazing location right on the water, and the BBQ menu. From the moment we entered, we should have immediately turned around and left. The inside is dark and dingy and smells of... More

The location is everything with this particular restaurant and worth a visit. The food and service are average but overall a good place.

Dock of the Bay is a seasonal restaurant and we enjoyed an amazing lunch on their last day. The view was spectacular, the food delicious and the service incredible!! We were never wanting for anything. I would have rated a full 5 star however, I found the portions a little lacking. The house kettle chips with my philly cheese steak... More

My husband and I enjoyed a second lunch there recently. We love patio on the water and the nachos with the house BBQ sauce, so yummy! We shared that and one of the lunch specials, Blackened Mahi tacos which had small fish portions with a dusting of some kind of BBQ rub of sorts. They were different but good enough... More

It was the perfect day out, so we were looking for a place to eat by the water. Someone recommended Dock of the Bay. While it did have a view of the water, the ambiance on the deck left a little to be desired, and it wasn't the greatest view. But the food was really good. I ordered the beer... More

This was a nice place to eat, drink a beer, and watch the boats come in and out. Very relaxed feeling. Our waitress lacked in personality, however food was delicious. I would recommend the BBQ Quesadilla.

Thank Mary S
