Food Was Great

We went with friends during Restaurant Week and every dish was excellent. The regular menu seemed a bit pricey, almost what you'd expect to pay in Manhattan. But the chef here definitely knows his business and based on the quality of the cook and ingredients it just may be worth it. I'd have given... read more

Huge shrimps, both as shrimp cocktail and coconut crusted. Plus a prime rib too big for the plate. Everything tasted like it was made in house, including fries and sauces. Nice sized bar, but It is not a big place and can get crowded, so best to reserve for a table. Not cheap, but less than comparable fish houses and... More

Our NEW favorite go to restaurant..... Our OLD favorite go to- Our MOST favorite restaurant, consistently, is Nautilus Cafe in Freeport. We've been going there for over 10 years. No matter what we order at Nautilus Cafe, we are always overwhelmed with the flavors -never ever disappointed- New special tonight(and we thought we had tried everything): Stuffed sole with scallop,...

The décor is lovely -- white linen tablecloths and napkins, windows all around -- and very calm and peaceful. The food is delicious. The view could only be improved by the restaurant being on the canal side of the road, but because the windows are so big, even if you can't really see the boats going up and down the... More

The last time my husband and i went there, it seemed they added extra tables. The dinning room was already tricky to move around in, but this last time the wait staff could hardly get around us, and my husband was actually bumped several times by the staff. The food is always great, but like i stated before, they need... More

Had lunch with a friend on a weekday. We spent $82 on just lunch with no alcohol. I don't care how good the food is, it's just not worth the price for lunch! Food and service were good, but not extraordinary. I'm not going back.

Had a great meal at the Nautilus this past week. Chuck was a very attentive waiter even though they were very busy (always busy... best to make a reservation!!). The clams casino were fantastic! Everyone in our party (7 of us) was 100% satisfied with the meals they selected- Steaks done to perfection, fish dishes were phenomenal and portions were... More
