One of our very favorite places to eat on the north fork. Definitely the best soups. Everything is freshly made and delicious. Claudia and Steve are wonderful and talented. Have yet to try breakfast but lunch & dinner have been exceptional.

Been shopping here for years - so glad they've moved to Front Street and can serve food - great selection of cheeses, specialty foods, coffee - prepared foods have great taste. And besides the well known Fried chicken, their soups are amazing, most recently the mushroom egg drop. A must visit in Greenport.

Went in & ordered a small takeout order. Went back 20 minutes later and our order was at the front. Being we had already paid and there was a customer with a large order in front of us, I asked if I could just take my order since I was in a hurry. The woman very rudely said to me... More

The lobster roll was filled with perfectly fresh and perfectly cooked lobster with just enough mayo and tiny bites of celery to bind and add texture. It came on a nicely grilled brioche-type roll and was a simply and expertly prepared dish. My daughter had deep fried soft shell crab on a nicely toasted roll with sesame seeds and a... More

This place is perhaps best for take-away, to make your own backyard picnic. It's well-located on Front Street in the tiny "downtown" of Greenport. Parking out front on the street is limited, so you're best to walk here. The food and supplies are gourmet - meats, cheeses, sandwiches, and, surprisingly, chilled or frozen soups for take-out. They even have some... More

Thanks for visiting our restaurant & store. We sure hope to see you next time but meanwhile we would like to say thank you for pointing out that our chicken pot pies are good cold. Our pot pies are usually served hot by servers here at our tables or taken out to be heated at home. (We offer dozens of... More

The last two times we visited Greenport, we didn't make it to Salamander's, even though it was high on my list. This time, we visited our second day in town, and liked it so much we went back the next night. The fried chicken is a MUST-HAVE. It is delectable. I read that Chef Claudia uses Browder's Birds (a local... More

Many thanks for your kind review! However, our chickens are Amish in origin, antibiotic & hormone-fee. We hope someday to be able to use local organic birds but right now they cannot supply the 600-700 birds per week we require. We are so delighted you came to dinner. Please say hello next time you're in town. More

We ate at Salamanda last weekend, they made sure my oreder didn't have or touched any shellfish (im allergenic), the Indian Dahl soup was fabulous, we took home too, I bought the Moroccan frozen lamb sausages -delicious. My friends ordered seafood - soft crab- fresh catch of the day, they loved it. You got to try the fried Chicken... and... More
