The Kitchen @ Captain Visger House
The menu will shift weekly based on what’s seasonally and locally available. Our love of sophisticated, fresh, hand prepared cuisine is evident in the menu, which features a rotation of freshly available local produce, supplemented by the highest quality and most sustainably produced imports.
The Kitchen is founded on principles of sourcing food sustainability, supporting the local community, and maintaining a small environmental footprint. The dishes feature hearty American meals, with a strong influence from French, Italian, and Californian cuisine. The cocktail menu is creatively crafted and punctuated with regional ingredients and bold flavors.
Tue–Sat 5:00 pm–9:00 pm
Awesome service and delicious food. Great Utica greens, pork belly and scrumptious cocktail!!!
Superb and inventive food well-executed. I definitely recommend this restaurant if you like creative healthy superb food.
Had a great time but the service was disjointed, drinks took too long, food was great!
Went here with my husband for our anniversary on a weekend getaway and had a wonderful relaxing evening! Everyone was so friendly and the food was amazing!! Loved the little patio and great for romantic night for two!! Will definitely go back!
Great food in a lovely setting, with an attentive and accommodating staff.
Best dinner on the US side of the 1000 Islands!
The Kitchen was a great place for a getaway place.
The food and service was fantastic
Not worth the time to review. Very disappointed in general. Did not appreciate seeing the sign in the dining room that read "FU-K ME". Biggest turnoff I have ever seen in a restaurant. Will not be back and will not recommend to others.
We go to Alex Bay every year for two weeks. This is a blessing for the area. I had a great meal and the whole experience was worth it. Had a romantic "date night" with my wife and we will be back every year, probably more than once a trip. A definite must stop for anyone who enjoys great homemade food with a flare.
The best meal we had in Alex Bay and each dish, you could tell, was carefully made with exceptional quality.
Wonderful staff. Beautiful ambiance and the food was magnificent. We had a chilled pea and mint soup with a dollop of sour cream as a starter. Perfect balance of flavor and perfect texture. We celebrated our anniversary there. It is a great special occasion place but reasonably priced enough not to wait for a special occasion!
Long wait for good food but worth it!
Kudos to the chef. Everything we ate was delicious. The beet salad was especially wonderful. Would go back if we weren't more than 5 hours away!
We love The Kitchen! The outdoor terrace setting is lovely, but they do have indoor seating as well. The food is innovative and beautifully presented. The wine list is thoughtfully curated and the specialty cocktails are favorites of ours because they are refreshing and delicious without being overly sweet. We have a lot of great restaurants in our area, but because of their more intimate size, The Kitchen is able to really pay attention to every detail of the meal. But the bottom line is that the food is five star. You won’t be disappointed!
Excellent service and unique food were the highlights of our visit. Definitely a hidden gem of the Thousand Islands.
It was the worst service my husband and I have received in our 54 years. We do not recommend this place to anyone. The waitress was more concerned with staying in the air conditioned inside. She did not tell us the specials we had to ask what they were and even then she did not know all of them. We did not receive bread and Vermont butter as the other tables around us did. The hamburg which was a special tasted like saw dust and the two tablespoons of potato salad left my husband hungry. It was 90 degrees in the shade and she replaced our water one time. When we arrived we went in the door of the restaurant and I told her we had reservations for 5:30pm and we asked for outside. We had never been there and assumed you walked through and went outside, but she waved at us in disgust to turn around and go back out the door to sit on the patio like we were pesty annoying flies. We ordered an appetizer to share and she asked us if we would like small plates and we said yes, she never delivered them so we just ate our appetizer. All the way around food was okay and service was horrible. My food was fine and the outside patio is lovely that is the only positive thing we have to say. I have never written a review and was so disappointed I decided to do so. I even considered calling afterward, but live a busy life and moved on. But this arrived in my email so here is my review.
We had such a great time at The Kitchen -- we were looking for someplace special to celebrate our anniversary and made a reservation here on a whim. The food was fantastic and the cocktails were amazing. Our server was such a delight, and we really enjoyed the laid back atmosphere of the outdoor dining area. It's the kind of place that feels special, but not pretentious at all, and again, the food was great! We'll definitely be going back, and agreed that we'd make a trip to Alexandria Bay just to grab dinner here.
Great, fresh, vegetarian options and the service was phenomenal. If I lived here, I’d be back every week.
Great LOCALLY owned Farm to Table restaurant. Owner/ chef is friendly, uses the freshest ingredients and has some great recipes.
I highly recommend this place. The food quality was excellent. Try the beet salad, it was fantastic and the other dishes were stellar too! They also have a decent variety on the wine list and good selection of microbrew beers. I look forward to going back on my next visit to Alexandria Bay.
Great outside patio seating and the food is wonderful. Very good service, thank you.
