My wife decided to try Salamanders when we discovered that our first choice was closed for the season. I am glad we did, the food selection was eclectic and the 2 dishes we has were excellent. The Thai style soup was served steaming hot and was a tasty mix of sour & spicy spices that were well balanced and delicious.... More

We really appreciate your glowing review of our food. We source local & organic/natural foods as much as possible. We have some talented farmers out here on the North Fork. But we are sad to hear that you were neglected at the door & table. It is our mission to give our guests a warm welcome as soon as they... More

We went here twice for lunch. Great environment, great service and surprisingly great food. Of the three lobster rolls that we tried in three different restaurants, theirs was by far the best. Great soups and really good fried chicken. Also a very good value.

Before taking the ferry to Shelter Island, we decided to grab a bite to eat as options on the island are limited. I checked trip advisor and decided to give this place a try. Two of us ordered the fried chicken, which was amazing. A good size portion for the price with the best French fries. My 8 year old... More

Delighted to read your kind words, thank you very much! Not sure you realized we also have a dining room on the mezzanine which is open at busy times-- so not so "little." We hope you will return soon to discover our menu & atmosphere are always changing. More

Went here during the Maritime Festival. Greenport was very busy, but somehow we got a table for 2. Our waiter was attentive, had great suggestions and was overall a great guy. Ordered fried chicken...AMAZING. Came out super hot and was so delicious I kept stealing it off my boyfriend's plate. The soft shell crab sandwich was superb, I'm from Maryland... More

I believe all I ordered was the Indian veggie soup (not actual name of it) . I got a "cup", but it was so tasty, I ordered a second cup. The service was excellent, friendly, and timely. I will certainly return when back in Greenport from Florida.

The name Salamander General Store may be a bit misleading. Yes, Salamander does take-out and sells gourmet food items. But don't miss their restaurant! The fried chicken is out of this world -- but the menu doesn't stop there. i had fantastic clams in garlic and white wine sauce, finished with thyme and other herbs, so much more than the... More

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
