New American Restaurant

“Providing Kingston with culinary magic for decades, you can't miss this iconic place. Their patio is located in a courtyard which means they are not subjected to local bylaws for patio season. On a warm spring or fall day, you may be able to find a spot to sit in the sun and enjoy their delicious food. ”

“The Kingston Brew Pub is Ontario's oldest brew pub, established in 1986, and is Canada's oldest wine-producing pub. Beers, wines, ciders and soda pops are made on the premises. Food is pub standard with unique twists and beer used in many of the recipes. A courtyard and street-front patio, as well as a banquet room (known as the Dragon's Lair), makes this pub a must visit. I recommend the ceasar salad and club sandwich. ”

“Club at night and restaurant. The Grizz plays every kind of actual music. A feel of Canadian bar with big logs and wooden ceiling. They serve good food too. If you are in the mood of partying or having fun after your diner check this place out. Pool tables upstairs are a good add on.”

“If you’re looking for some music to spice up your time in Westport, The Cove is the place for you to set yourself down. They bring in the best they can find and keep a healthy mix on rotation. From Blues to Jazz, Rock to Folk, Country to Bluegrass, Soul to Funk, they love it all. In the warmer months, larger performances and full band shows take place on their Lounge stage while solos, duos and small groups play to the patio crowds. When it gets cooler, all shows happen in the Lounge. Always best to call ahead for reservations so you have a seat too! 1.888.COVE.INN ”

“A unique variety of fired pizzas like Rueben, which is my favorite! A great selection of their handcrafted beer. You can sit inside or they have a brand new covered outdoor deck located just across the street from the Antique Boat Museum. ”
