From beginning to end the meal at Daniels by the sea is superb. We could eat there every night of the week. The menu is so varied, there are so many good choices. The lobster, veal parmigiana , osso bucco,are all excellent. The snails are great, and they give you 12 of them!!! No other restaurant gives you so many... More

Sitting directly on dawn beach this casual restaurant is a gem. Very different at lunch and dinner but both are great. No credit cards at lunch time but that changes for dinner service. Nice Italian options and light fare at dinner. We enjoyed the front table last night, pleasant breeze and the sound of the surf made for an enjoyable... More

After dinner on the other side of the island the previous night, my wife and I were looking for something that was more close to our temporary home at the Westin. The concierge suggested Daniel's and since it was just down the road we decided to give it a try. She explained that the tables and chairs or plastic but... More

Located inside the Oyster Bay Beach resort complex this beachside restaurant serves lunch as "Mr Busbys" by day and "Daniels by the Sea" in the evening. For lunch the menu is varied from a full pizza menu to attractive sandwiches and salads along with main courses from fish to ribs. Service is always friendly and prices reasonable by island standards.... More

Mr. Busby's is a nice restaurant in Oyster pond. You can sit right at the beach. Good menu-nice italian dishes- and delicious desserts. Friendly staff, nice bar. We went here twice in our vacation in januari 2015. Try the tiramisu as dessert!

The food and drinks were good, but here it's all about the ambience and the view. Sitting outside under, overlooking the water, it's a great place to relax.

We enjoyed eating here as it is right on the beach, service was great, and the menu offered many options. We had Italian fare one evening and it was very good. it was nice to eat outside and enjoy the waves.

Best fish sandwich we have had on the island, either side. The beer is cold. Service can be a little slow, but probably because it is very crowded.
