New location, same GREAT chicken, but PRICEY....

While we LOVE their chicken, their new location DID NOT take credit cards (perhaps they do now) when we went here last. They told us there is an ATM "down the street". Previously "off the beaten path" on a side street, we LOVED going here. Last time, we took out the chicken & ate it at home....

We were quite surprised to find such great homemade salads and soups in a general store! Quite unusual, also. Fabulous lentil soup and the salads were quite different. Very casual and great after our bike ride.

Salamanders is renowned for its outstanding chicken but also serves many other fine foods in it wonderful location in Greenport. Their food is made from fresh ingredients and is a nice change from the routine fare at most restaurants. It is well worth a visit.

Salamander General Store is a great market which provides delicious meals that may be taken ‘to go’ or enjoyed with ‘sit-down’ service in their conveniently located Front Street location in the heart of Greenport. It has wonderful prepared foods such as fried chicken, imported charcuteries, as well as many other delicious selections and accompaniments. This place is a gem and... More

For a quick bite to eat, this is a nice stop. Fried Chicken was good and the clam/fish chowder. A little pricey but the location probably drives that price. Everybody was nice.

We ordered take out fried chicken to eat at a picnic. It was some of the best I ever had -- the crust was crispy and delicious, the chicken still tender. I could have eaten it all day. It came with potato salad -- good, but not outstanding and cole slaw. Just an excellent meal.

Love this place! Like a modern general market with lots of charm. The food is so fresh and locally produced. Anything from the So Club (made with fresh roasted turkey) to the Kobe beef burgers to the fish and chips (best anywhere) is made to order and with their own twist. Try the sweet potato fries..... Delicious fried chicken! Like... More
