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

Stopped in with my daughter for lunch and had the most wonderful fried chicken ( absolutely the best I've ever had!) purple cole slaw and corn bread. The staff and atmosphere was very welcoming and beautiful! I highly recommend stopping into Salamanders when visiting Greenport, NY!

Stopped in for lunch, completely by chance. We were greeted/seated immediately. Thank you Bryan, for your pleasant and professional service. We shared the vegetable empanada, which was excellent, and we each ordered fish and chips, which we have had in many places along the east coast. The fish was light, flavorful, with a coating as crisp as anyone could expect.... More

Complete let down. Loved Salamanders in the past. Excellent menu and food but things have changed. We went there for a simple Sunday lunch and ended up dropping as much as we would have spent at a fine restaurant on the North Fork at this little rip off. FYI I had the Sunday roasted chicken meal...it was the equivalent of... More

Hello Paul, We are all quite disturbed by your review! We want all our guests to enjoy top quality ingredients at a moderate price but apparently this was not your experience. We will try to discover who your server was and actual date of dining to try to see how so much went wrong! The 'Sunday Best Chicken' was on... More

This place knocked me out! I had the most amazing lunch here including a pork sandwich with a flavorful Dressing that included fresh coriander, described on the menu as "crazy good". We had lemonades garnished with fresh mint (everything here is fresh and local). Mostly local wines on the menu but I did sample a really nice Sancerre. Locally crafted... More

Stopped by for lunch after a late afternoon visit to the wineries. Was greeted immediately by our friendly waiter and seated at a table upstairs. From there, everything was great. Service was prompt, food came out quickly and it was wonderful. Can't wait to try the other soups. Will eat here again next time I'm in Greenport.
