Just returned from an unbelievably packed and excellent event at McCalls Vineyard. The standout, by far, were the Oysters Friskafeller at The Frisky Oyster table. As always, without skipping a beat, or breaking a sweat, Chef Robby was unfailingly consistent with the quality of his food. Bravo Robby for never letting your followers down. Great event!

Phenomenal pretty much sums it up. Wait staff was courteous and prompt. Never felt rushed although a smaller restaurant. Duck breast and braised short ribs were outstanding. Well worth the "hype". Some may be turned off by the plate prices but I can honestly say you'll have no regrets at this restaurant.. you are getting what you pay for.

Frisky Oyster is located in the heart of the village. Good place for a romantic dinner or a cocktail at the bar.I think it is the best restaurant in Greenport. Service was excellent and knowledgeable of the nightlife in the area. Bartender even suggested where to go for live music after dinner.

This restaurant is a winner in my book. The service was great and the food was just excellent... Everything was prepare just right. My only little complaint was the music was a tad too loud and may it difficult to be heard. But that will not stop me from going there again. My husband and I simply love the place... More

Our pretentious and obnoxious busboy actually ruined our dinner. My guest made a joke and the busboy pretended not to get it and corrected his pronunciation and spelled the word for us. Really. The mispronunciation obviously was the joke. I was outraged by his absurdly pretentious attitude and explained the joke to him. He repeated his rude and pretentious responses.... More

I would love to give this place five stars, but I just can't. We had a reservation and were seated right away, but the server didn't come around for our drink order until 20 minutes after we sat. After she took our drink order we tried to order our appetizers but she left already. It took another 10 minutes for... More

A modern urban-style place with an outstanding and interesting menu and a very capable kitchen. We had two different oyster appetizers and both were outstanding. In general the appetizers were more interesting than the mains. Definitely THE happening place in Greenport and worth trying to get a table.
