Great food but iffy service

Let me start by saying the food was beyond great at Daniel's. We all had variations of seafood pasta and they were all excellent. I had lobster and shrimp fettuccine in a pink sauce. It was divine. The service left a lot to be desired and our waiter was actually pretty rude. I would have rated it a... read more

My first visit here for dinner was very good! Great location right on the beach so the view was wonderful. Servers all very friendly and knowledgeable. The salad was fresh and plentiful. Both my husband and I had a pasta dish which was cooked perfectly with excellent flavor. Will definitely go back to try some other dishes. Daniel came out... More

We ordered 2 pizzas to go and then sat and waited forever. No one told us we had to pick them up in an entirely different area or let us know they were ready. We finally figured it out and got decent warm by that time pizza. Felt like we were an annoyance. pizzas are 10 inches and $15- $18... More

My husband and I really liked this place. You can sit comfortably under an overhang or umbrella and watch the sea, get great, fresh food that's not expensive (by island standards) and meet some very friendly waiters and waitresses. They also do take-out pizza which we did one night too. Wouldn't hesitate to go back there if I was ever... More

We had the grilled lobster which was so delicious that I still dream about it. Can't wait to go back

A nice view on the ocean; however food was overpriced and average. Mostly Italian influence, while it was fresh, I do not feel the need to rave. If you are staying at OBBR I would recommend it if you don't have a car for convenience.

Unfortunately, Dawn Beach has been slammed by Seaweed for the last four years and the Beach is a mess. Having said that, Mr. Busby's is still a great place for drinks, lunch or dinner. They have some of the best prices for drinks on the Island, and the food is very, very good. You might be disappointed with the condition... More

The food here is great- always has been. Pizzas, pastas, shrimp salad, breakfasts - its all great! The service, on the other hand, is generally atrocious. Don't plan on going if you have anywhere to be afterwards - you will be there a while. The servers are moderately attentive, but don't seem like they really want to be there. The... More

Daniel's By The Sea is only a quick walk from Oyster Bay Beach Resort. So convenient we ate at the restaurant twice and ordered out pizza once. Being located right on the water made the experience even more special.
