I enquired what the locals came in for and I was advised the Fried Chicken. This is not something I would normally go for, but this is what I ordered - and I thought it was average. But then again, because it is not something I would usually order, I don't really have anything to compare it too.

I have eaten at many more upscale restaurants in Greenport, however this is my favorite. When in season, the fried soft shell crab is the best I've ever had, amazingly large, crispy and juicy. Ditto with the fried chicken. You cant go wrong with either the dark or white meat. Both dishes are accompanied with hand cut french fries. My... More

This is an interesting eatery. Food is prepared healthily with a bar, which I found peculiar, but nice. When you place your order the person taking your order tell you when to pick up your order and they stick to it and they are somewhat disorganized, but the food it good. I ordered the chicken which was incredibly delicious.

My wife and I decided to have lunch in Greenport. Since the holiday weekend crowds were gone, we took a nice stroll on Main Street. We came upon Salamander's and since we have not yet dined in thier brand new location, we gave it a try. We coudn't get over how beautiful the place is compared to thier old location... More

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
