The view was fabulous; the food disappointing. My husband, a vegetarian, said our group should eat there despite there being only one vegetarian entree on the menu - and they were out of it! He ended up with a grilled cheese sandwich for dinner. My meatloaf with Marsala sauce and smoked blue cheese was dry. I saw the cheese but... More

Our monthly dinner club went to Channelside Restaurant for Dinner on Saturday September 24th. It was very busy and crowded when we arrived so we did not know what to expect. We were seated promptly at a table with a view of the St. Lawrence River. Our Waitress acknowledged us immediately - she was friendly, caring, attentive and efficient (all... More

A great place to dine on the river. Beautiful outdoor and indoor seating. Staff was very attentive. Didn't rush us even though they were busy. Great variety on the menu. Good selection for vegetarian eaters as well. Took us a while to decide on our dinners. Food was excellent.

This restaurant was awesome! We happened to be in 1000 Islands on only the 2nd day that the area had experienced rain all summer. We went boating the day before & this was my day to visit the shops in Clayton. We had a wonderfully relaxing lunch on the covered part of the outdoor patio. We sat & enjoyed it... More

We stopped into ChannelSide Restaurant mid afternoon for drinks and a few appetizers. The view from the patio is lovely, the waitress was friendly and efficient. We ordered Bang Bang Shrimp, Pan-seared tuna and Stuffed Peppadews. They were all good, I was especially happy with the Bang Bang shrimp because it was lightly breaded and had a nice sauce.

I was pleasantly surprised how good this restaurant was. My first visit I lunched with my sister and we both were very happy with our lunches. I would strongly suggest the BLT, made with cheese. We shared an order of the poutine and it was very tasty. I ended up going back again another day for dinner. There were four... More

Ask to sit outside if the weather permits. Great sunsets. Typical dining options, nothing remarkable, but decent food prepared reasonably well. We all ordered seafood and everyone was pleased with their choice of entree.

We love eating ourdoors in nice weather and this restaurant's patio had a gorgeous view of the sunset on the river. We were there once for dinner and once for lunch and enjoyed both. Food was quite decent.
