The North Glengarry Restaurant


Awesome service and view of the falls on a patio

Built in 1819, the restaurant structure is the oldest standing building in Alexandria. Nicknamed the “Priest’s Mill,” it originally served as a grist mill.

It was built by a Scottish immigrant, Catholic priest Alexander Macdonnell, who inspired the name for the town of Alexandria. Later he became the first bishop of Kingston.

The building remained resilient to multiple fires as it served as a grist, stone, and roller mill over the next 150 years. In the 1970s, the building was renovated into a restaurant, eventually taking on the name you see today: “The North Glengarry.”

The image of the historic mill remains preserved in our picturesque patio, the only one of its kind in the area! Come experience a delicious meal with a view of the old dam and stone waterway. Be serenaded by the peaceful sound of the waterfall, fed by the nearby Garry River and Mill Pond.
