Colorful artwork... friendly waitress

Went for a late lunch the taco app was fun to eat served on a wooden board with multi colored warm tortilia chips. The salad with bri cheese, green apples and walnuts was what I wanted and enjoyed it. My kids had chicken salad, Blt, and something else on all huge slices of bread which they... read more

At Painter's the food is very good and the atmosphere is exciting! The staff is very attentive and personable, and the menu is diverse to say the least. Then there are the desserts! They have a regular dessert menu that is terrific, and updated with specials pretty often which are hard to resist. I would definitely recommend bringing your appetite.

I had been to Painter's before they had a fire a few years back and it was great. They were closed for a few years and recently re-opened. I visited last week for lunch with a few friends. First, it was very warm in the restaurant. It's summer and if the a/c was on it was not sufficient. The second... More

Ok place, eclectic decor, local artwork hanging, not much gointg on in the nice weather there..Bartender told us it;s more of a fall/winter place with regular DJ and live bands...VERY OVERPRICED menu, 2 drinks $17 steak sandwich and 1 other sandwich...$70.00.....NOT worth the money...Like tons of other places, nothing special to charge that much money....

The seating area is very open...there is a bar in close proximity to food area and thus the restaurant is quite noisy...Food was good and service was also good. Nothing exceptional.

After waiting for 2 years for one of our favorite restaurants to open and a 45 min ride I have only bad memories to remember it by. The place looked similar but that was it. The staff was terrible our waitress was not familiar with the menu and was clueless to anything to do with the bar. The tuna app... More

We were driving around shopping and exploring Bayport and Brookhaven, and drove past this restaurant. The parking lot had about twenty cars in it and we stopped to see what was going on. We had no intention of having lunch, the interior was so inviting and visually interesting, my wife and I decided to have a quick bite. We ordered... More

We happened to be driving by around lunch time and stopped in. What a cool place! There's art work everywhere, and the ceilings are high, so there's even more art work than you might expect. The tables have brown paper covering them along with a set of crayons, so adults and children alike get into doodling while waiting for their... More

We recently dined at Painters, it had been closed for a long time, and now is reopened. It still has its funky atmosphere but the menu and food is varied and delicious. We tried the Tuna Nachos and will order them again, the tuna was very fresh and the combination was crunchy and a little spicy. The plump mussel appetizer... More

Description

Off of the southern state at exit 57 south, PAINTERS' RESTAURANT, 10,000sq. ft of fun & the avant garde of restaurants. The walls are packed with art from ceiling to floor with the work of local and NYC artists; all for sale. The menu rivals the creativity on the walls with offerings from the "GENIUS" burgers (everybody loves the "andy warhol burger" even though its not a burger) to chef Luis Marin's latin twist on the san francisco seafood classic "cioppino" or seseme crusted ahi tuna. The menu is eclectic to say the least. We have our own version of "tapas" we call YUM with ASIAGO GARLIC BREAD, 5 KINDS OF NACHOS, SUSHI TUNA, FRENCH ONION SOUP...it goes on.
