    This was our first visit to TI club and definitely not our last. The servers were friendly and the food was great. My Alaskan Halibut was cooked to a turn and the Lobster Mac & Cheese would satisfy any hearty but choosy palette. Everyone in our party of 4 cleaned their plate! Beautiful views and ample open air seating provided ambiance and enjoyment for a special occasion. Its a large space...perfect for events.

    if your idea of a great evening out is a night at a high school cafeteria. One of the worst run properties I've encountered in 40+ years of globetrotting - noisy, amateurish service (...high there honey...), clanging dishes, mediocre food with terrible presentation including spillage, horrible wine list (no vintages, poor selection) and near unbearable noise level. Replete with hideously dressed and mostly drunken country club members which obviously haven't been blessed with a great deal of culture and/or etiquette. Overrated, disappointing on every level. Don't bother -

    My wife and I live in the North Country. We recently decided to try the Thousand Island Club for dinner. We had never eaten there before. I must say, it was one of the most enjoyable meals that we have ever had. The service was excellent, the food was the best that we've had in the area, and the view overlooking the marina was the cherry on top. We can't wait for a return visit.

    Don't get me wrong, I have no problem paying top dollar for exceptional service and food, but unfortunately for our visit, the bill was high, but our food and service was sub par. I really wanted to like this place, as the views were absolutely stunning. For a very high level overview of why I was disappointed, the server was really bad. She forgot our order three times and our dinners took over 95 minutes to be delivered (not exaggerating). When the meals finally did arrive, they were cold. She did not even say she was sorry for the long delay. I guess to sum it up best is that for the five star experience we paid for, I would refer to the star ratings I gave in my review.

    Enjoyed a quiet Thursday nite for dinner on the patio. Three of us ordered from the lounge menu and enjoyed pizza, flatbread with a beet salad and a sammie . One ordered a special which was sea bass, and although it was a smallish portion said it was delicious and he also ordered his favorite the calamari steak and raved about it. We had a very attentive waiter who helped with the wine choice and the cocktails were generous. Announcing it was a special Anniversary, he brought the couple desert shots on the house. Always an enjoyable experience. One criticism was the dress on the hostess as she wore clingy short short shorts . This was unacceptable for dinner viewing.

    While staying on Wellesley Island on vacation, we just had to dine at the TI Club since it was the only Open Table restaurant that far north in NY. Well...we weren't disappointed! The dining room was indoor/outdoor and we were seated on the outdoor deck overlooking the St. Lawrence River. Great ambience and very attentive service. Really diverse menu...my wife had Diver Scallops and I just had to try their Chicken Riggies. We started with an Ahi Tuna appetizer. Everything was delicious. Nice specialty drink selection along with a very good wine list. If you're staying in Alexandria Bay or anywhere in the area, take the drive over the bridge and visit the TC Club. Well worth it!

    There are few places in this world where you can take a large group, enjoy an incredible ambiance, and send the kids out to the lawn to the fire pit or a movie... the TI Club has it all, and it is one of the most unique dining experiences in the world. Whether you're looking for a romantic date for two, or a place to celebrate Grandma's 70th with 20, the TI Club can accommodate every occassion.

    After a day on the water it was most welcome to be seated by a charming young lady, greeted with a smile by our server and presented with an outstanding dinner. And, as an aside, the deserts, presented in small glasses, were of the perfect size...not too big, just enough to satisfy an after meal sweet tooth.

    Despite needing to contact the owner Julie to change our initial Open Table reservation to add two of our friends, we were promptly seated at our lovely table at the TI Club precisely at the designated hour on Saturday, July 5, 2014. We had an outstanding evening - beautiful food, fine wine, striking views of the 1000 Islands and St. Lawrence River, but most notably, our server Michaela was incredibly charming and attentive. What a sweetheart! Following dinner, our visit to the bar included a nice visit with manager Joe (2nd year in for Joe - happy that he's back from Denver!). It's not easy for seasonal restaurants to pull off success on a consistent annual basis, but the TI Club is a "must do" for us every summer. Bravo!

    If you want a great restaurant in boondocks USA, then mark this restaurant as a fabulous surprise. O.K., maybe New Yorkers know about the 1000 islands but it is a best kept secret to the rest of the world. The dining experience is as good as any big city venue! Great service, nice people, incredible food, creme brulee to die for and out of originary setting and view!!!

    I was looking forward to my meal of pork with a sweet potato hash, but the sweet potato hash was more like slightly cooked sweet potatoes with some peppers and onions. The pork was very good. My grandma use to say the best way to tell if a restaurant is going to be good is if the bread is warm. They didn't serve bread...enough said. Next time I'll go to the Wellesley Island Hotel no matter how late the reservation is.

    I took my parents out for a special occasion and chose this restaurant based on online reviews. The reviews were right on. This place is outstanding. We had a table outside and nice view of the river. Their outside seating is nice because the covering keeps direct sun off the tables and the fans keep you cool even on a hot night. The service was very attentive. I felt like we had our own waitress. The food was very good as well. I would definatly go back.

    One of our favourite destinations on the river. Although it was cold it was still enjoyable. I would suggest supplying blankets for the cooler nights to extend the season on your patio. I once visited a restaurant in Saratoga Springs and they provided blankets and it was a welcome touch.

    My fiance and I went here for a "fancy dinner" with my parents, and we very much enjoyed our experience. I was a little skeptical when we first arrived because the bar area is a bit outdated, but the tables in the outdoor balcony area were immaculately set and the view of the river (and all of the yachts!) was quite pretty. Between the four of us, we ordered the lobster bisque, crab cakes, and crispy calamari for starters and the sea bass special, veal special, lobster ravioli and short ribs for main courses. The lobster dishes were both a little too rich and a little too fishy, but the sea bass and short ribs were outstanding, and our young waiter was very polite and professional.

    Our Beef Carpaccio was delicious, but our entrees were not. The Chicken Riggies chicken tasted like it had been boiled and and had no flavor. The Ahi Tuna wasn't served rare as stated on the menu, but was cooked most of the way through. The bean salad it was served on was also very lackluster and salty. Overall we were very disappointed with the meal. It's unfortunate because the view is beautiful and the restaurant itself has great ambiance. Our wait staff was friendly and helpful with questions regarding our dishes, but the food itself brought everything down.
