Fresh seafood - nice ambience!

Deceiving from the street front - looks like a take out place, but once inside the ambience is lovely. All of the oyster apps were fresh and delicious. Entrees of short ribs - fell off the bone; halibut - 2 nice sized pieces cooked as requested. The lobster pasta - wonderful and the scallops were... read more

After spending a very long day out in eastern Long Island, this was a very nice find. Relaxing atmosphere and good food. It was a little on the expensive side, but overall we enjoyed it and would go back.

The local white wine they serve is good, the food was fantastic, even for those who don't eat fish in this seaside town of Greenport.

Wow, my husband and I came to the area for the weekend for our 5 year wedding anniversary. This place came highly recommended by everyone that we spoke to. Wow, it did not disappoint. I don't even eat oysters and the friskafella oysters were one of the most delicious seafood dishes I have ever had. The lobster quesadilla's were delicious.... More

The place was a high end cozy restaurant that would be just as successful in NYC. The food was beyond compare and the service was excellent. It was on the pricey side but worth every penny. You must make a reservation. If you can get there early, do so because it gets crowded fast. Absolutely wonderful. Each meal was a... More

On our recent trip to Greenport we dined at the Frisky Oyster and it was amazing. Our server, Kelly, was phenomenal. And the food! It was incredible. I started with their baked "Friskafella" Oysters (OMG so good) followed by the Seared Scallops, which were very fresh and tasty. My husband had the Grilled Caesar Salad followed by the chicken dish,... More

Been here a few times and same old story . good food ,terrible service. expensive. Don't think I will be coming back. I will spend my money in either Noahs or Caci. Hate to write a negative review but they need to change the staff a little.

Great atmoshere, great food, amazing cocktails. I went with my GF for dinner and we were both pleasantly surprised. Reservations are a must as it tends to be very bback. The seared tuna was amazing, perfectly cooked and very flavorful. The beaver fever coctail I had was by far one of the best and most creative cocktails have ever had.... More

I love Frisky Oyster for a small group of friends or for a date. My parents did not like the trendiness or noise level, which is understandable, but I love that it offers a chic spot to have a drink and an interesting meal. The menu is fun and unique and I love all their drinks. It is a bit... More

Many of the foodie joints in eastern LI are white-linened, 3 hour formal productions. This place is more geared toward the fun crowd. Don't get me wrong, food is good but it's the atmosphere that make this always rank high. I would recommend the proscuitto wrapped egg and the Oysyer Friskafella, both showcasing local ingredients in an updated style. For... More
