While visiting family on Long Island, we ate lunch at this restaurant. Service was really poor and waitress abrupt. We has a very elderly person with us and she tried to rush him when eating. They were not attentive to our needs but when they did show up at our table, they were in a hurry. My family has been... More

I went with my wife on a Saturday evening. I like the location and if you have a table near the window then the view is great. My wife had clams and lobster. The clams were great and so was the lobster. I had blackened tuna, which was fresh but arrived lukewarm on the outside and cold in the middle,... More

Very good seafood, especially my Horseradish encrusted Grouper which I had here last year when I visited--very good. Accompanied with homemade mashed potatoes and vegetables. Everyone ordered different dishes and... More

This place has been around for ever. It has a bar, restaurant and catering rooms. Located right at the marina, it offers upscale dining with a view of boats coming in and leaving the marina. There are plenty of bayside restaurants and bars in the area but their menus are mostly fried seafood and burgers, This year round restaurant offers... More

Went on a Tuesday night with a party of 13 to celebrate a birthday. I never received my meal and the server blamed the cook and the cook blamed the server. The manager on duty was not sympathetic to my negative dinning experience. He was extremely sarcastic when I requested some type of compensation. He eventually he took 10% off... More
