The best part of Channelside is by far the view. In the past we had phenomenal food, over the past two years it is good. The view is everything. I prefer to have cocktails and appetizers on the deck, while enjoying the river view. For...More

You are right on the beautiful St. Lawrence River, watching boats, ships and windsurfers while you eat delicious food. Eat indoors or out. Not the biggest menu, but enough choices. Yummy desserts!

We tried the Mac n Cheese appetizer which was stuffed with seafood (crab, shrimp, fish, sausage), also had broiled scallops which were delicious, the mahi-mahi mahi-mahi was spicy. Had a wonderful rose and enjoyed the sunset. Would definitely recommend

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.
