I have eaten here a number of times and highly recommend it for the food service and atmosphere - but on two occasions have left earlier as the owners kids take over the place (did not get to enjoy the deserts espresso and cordials)

We stopped there for a drink while walking around Kingston. We asked to see a dinner menu because we were going to come back later for dinner. First off, the price of the two drinks we had were at Manhattan prices. We took a look at the menu, and although it had some very different items, the prices were also... More

For the price we thought the meal should have been better. Yet we still liked the soup (similar to a Manhattan seafood chowder), the entrees (Moroccan Lamb and Grilled Port), and the wine. You can look at the menu online to see the prices. The ambience was interesting; the bar seemed to attract locals. In total, the experience was very... More

We were in town for business and it had been suggested we head down to this area of town for dinner. It was early spring and still cold, but the Ship to Shore felt cozy and inviting. A few menu items were out by the time we arrived, but all of our meals were nicely presented and tasty. I had... More

I have been a regular customer for the last six years. The last time I ate here I was sick for three days. In the past, there was a quality chef running the kitchen...and now there are just workers. At this price point, where it is so easy to drop $150 on dinner for two people...I recommend choosing another restaurant.... More

Ship to Shore is a very popular place on a cold Feb. Saturday night. The music and crowd were fun, the service was excellent and the food was outstanding. We had a range of meals, from Duck, Branzino to Lamb Lolipops and a great goat cheese salad. It's in the historic Kingston Waterfront District.

For hors douvres,appetizers and cocktails, this establishment offers a tasty selection. The pate appears fresh and homemade. The brussels sprouts and mussels were rich and flavorful. The duck salami was succulent, but needed more garnish and possible dipping sauce. Olive oil for dipping, butter and bread were scarce, as were the salt & pepper on the table. Service was adequate.... More

One of my joys of going out to a leisurely lunch with girlfriends is having a toast. The wine here was $36 for a bottle you can buy at the store for $10. Very disappointing. I ordered the spaghetti with garlic Tiger shrimp. It came on a plate the size of a salad plate and had three tiny shrimp on... More
