I have been going to Ship to Shore for many years and I have "never" been disappointed. I have had favorites on the menu, but even when the menu changes I always find a few new favorites, usually on the first try :) The menu always contains something for every ones taste, and every guest I have ever brought with...

We rolled into this sleepy little hamlet at 9:15. The bartender took pity on us and let us order dinner despite the hour and how quiet it was in the restaurant. We had a terrific meal. The muscles and Brussels were delicious. The drinks perfectly prepared and best of all the other patrons were exceptionally nice which made the experience... More

Stopped for lunch, more than we had thought. Burgers were huge, delicious. I had a argula salad, that was very good, fresh ingredients. Highly recommend. Will return for sure.

My friend and I stopped here on a Sunday before we went on a boat tour. It is a cozy restaurant and we luckily got a seat at the window with a nice view. The service was very good and the food was excellent. My friend had the french toast and I ordered the waffles topped with chocolate syrup, blueberries,... More

Pretty decent food but nothing special given the cost. I've had $8 steaks off my grill that tasted better than what I had here for $30+. Scallops were a little under-cooked nor did they taste fresh.

We went early on a Saturday evening - 6:00pm, without a reservation - and were able to get a table. We were told that it was good we arrived when we did because they probably couldn't seat us later. I started with an apple cider margarita and my husband had an apple cider old fashioned. Both very good. I ordered... More

It was a Friday night and all of our stars must have been in alignment because we found a parking space just steps from the restaurant, had no reservation but were seated almost immediately and enjoyed a fantastic meal! Our dinners and shared salad were created with a farm-to-table freshness that was quite evident in every bite. The friendly, personable... More

We have been for brunch and dinner alone and with friends and have found the food and service to always be good. The cuisine is fairly basic, nothing for localities or true foodies but for seafood lovers who like an Italian influence , this is a great choice be goo

As a child and teen, I spent my summers at my mothers childhood home in a village near Kingston. Our drive to Kingston usually took us through the "Strand" area, which I was always enchanted with. After not returning for 40 years, I was happily surprised at the revival of the Strand. The dinner at Ship and Shore was a... More

We dined outdoors on a lovely late-summer evening to the tune of the rock band playing in the restaurant across the street. Food and service were great! Linguine carbonara was cooked to perfection in a creamy sauce, with chunks of guanciale and curls of well-aged hard cheese. The chop-chop salad had a lemony dressing and chunks of beets, chickpeas, kale,... More
