I know this place has a following, and maybe we just hit them on an "off" day, but we were not pleased. We went for breakfast fare, pancakes seems "greasy" and not terribly tasty. Room is crowded, but I suppose that is the appeal. We will not hurry to return.

We stopped by here for a light lunch one afternoon after someone recommended it to us. In short, we would not eat here again. Granted, we only has a salad and an appetizer but both disappointed. The salad looked and tasted like they had poured a pre-chopped iceberg mix out of a bag from the grocery store. It was pretty... More

This last visit to the Greenhouse Cafe was our LAST visit to the Greenhouse Cafe. I ordered oatmeal only to find out that is was pre-packaged ! And upon one taste,... More

Since our family vacation home was in Ship Bottom, we spent many afternoons dining at the Greenhouse Café. But that was then, and this is now. Fifteen or so years later (yesterday) we had dinner once again at the Greenhouse. I couldn't wait for another bowl of the best Manhattan clam chowder on the Island. Let me start by saying... More

I live nearby so it pains me to give an average review of a place so close. I'm always hoping the food gets better or service a little nicer. The staff is fine, it's the owner. He acts as if he is bothered that you came in. I'm a local; at least act like you recognize me. Menu is huge... More

Had an enjoyable breakfast for two. Service was very nice. French toast was not exactly what we were expecting, but it tasted just fine. Greenhouse states in their advertisements a 20% discount for breakfast between 8 and 10 AM on weekdays. However, to rcv this discount you need to ask for it?! That seems to be on the borderline of...

We go to this restaurant quite often. The dinners are always good and the pizza is fantastic! My husband had the meat lovers double crust pizza and I had the spinach pizza. Just delicious! They are individual pizzas but plenty for two. We each took home half a pizza and can't wait to eat it for lunch tomorrow!
