The Frisky Oyster is probably the most popular restaurant in Greenport, it is also the best. Considering the word 'Oyster' is in the name, I did expect more oyster dishes. We had their famous Oyster Friskafella and it was great. The duck was fantastic. My husband got the scallops, which were good, but very expensive for the portion size. We... More

My Asian style ribs were excellent: done in a hoisin sauce with thin noodles. Service was good. Don't know why a glass of wine is $12 when the whole bottle is about $25.

Place is on a smaller side but very pleasant even though tables are very close to each other. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Despite the name, not much choice of seafood. Everything we had was delicious. Appetizers are on a small side but main dish was of a formidable size. Good selection of wine. Would definitely come back.

After reading a couple reviews about the chef this place seemed like it was worth a try... But from the moment you walk in it's clear this place is really a club intended for the most awful Jersey Shore drunks Who think the highlight of good taste is a sparkler on top of the huge champagne bottle. The front of... More

We showed up on time for our reservation, and were asked to wait 20 minutes while a table freed up. After waiting, we were rushed through the entire dinner with the entrée showing up immediately after the appetizer finished, deserts right after the entrée, and the check coming while we were still eating. Our entire dinner lasted maybe 75 minutes.... More

Went to the Frisky Oyster for my daughters 27th birthday. We have been to the restaurant a few times before so our expectations were high - the restaurant has always had impeccable service. This time however, the service was not what we had expected from a fine dining restaurant. The waiter was pushy about taking our order all at once... More

I loved every single dish that we had on this restaurant. We had the squash blossom with crab meat and goat cheese as an appetizer which was amazing. I had the pomegranate BBQ short ribs which are the best I've ever had- tender, delicious and juicy. The farm duck breast with wine sauce was outstanding. As desserts we had the... More

In town for a wedding and we chose to visit the Frisky Oyster entirely based on the strength of their menu. I literally wanted to order one of everything! However, in order to keep costs down, I limited myself to one item for each course. We started at the bar and had a glass of the sparkling rose (made in... More

Dined here last night and I was blown away by how friendly and accommodating the chef was. I have several allergies, which the restaurant took very seriously. The waitress actually wrote my allergies on the paper menu and the chef then put ✅ and ❎ onto the dishes that were safe and unsafe and what ingredients he could leave out... More
