My wife and I were looking for something special for our 50th Anniversary Dinner, and we certainly found it. We had a perfect view with great service and the best Prime Rib dinner I think I have ever had.

Windows on the Bay provides you with a casual dining atmosphere with water views on three sides, and magnificent Boldt Castle as a backdrop. In season, choose to eat inside in air conditioned comfort or outside on our Channnelview Deck, where you can enjoy all the sights and sounds of the bustling Alexandria Bay harbor and the main shipping channel of the St. Lawrence Seaway. The deck also serves as a very popular gathering place for barbecues and cocktail parties. As the sun sets and the table lanterns glow, every seat is a window seat and the view is truly breathtaking. Serving Breakfast Monday through Saturday 7:00 am - 11:00 am and Sunday 7:00 am - 1:00 pm. Serving Lunch Monday through Saturday 11:30 am - 1:00 pm. Serving Dinner Monday through Sunday 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm.
