We only had drinks here, though the menu and food did look good. This is in a nice location right on the St. Lawrence River. The bartender was very attentive and efficient, and we had a good time here.

We had dinner here here for the first time and were very impressed. My girlfriend’s meatloaf dinner was very good, and my Perch fry was great. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Call and speak to someone in charge. The restaurant IS open in October but only limited hours. If it's a special event, something may be able to be worked out for you.
