Pretty summer evening on the water

An alternative to more crowded and more festive eateries on the water's edge in Greenport. Our table was the first one facing the water and we sat enjoying the pretty night and sea breeze. Excellent wine offerings, we bought a bottle of the one we liked best at the end of our meal. We weren't... read more

We go to Scrimshaw for special occasions and the whole family was available the day after Christmas. Since we go to Scrimshaw fairly often Rosa Ross, the owner and chef, as well the the staff know us which makes our dining experience something like a social affair. That along with excellent food makes dining at Scrimshaw very enjoyable. After our... More

We had a very nice meal and experience at the Scrimshaw. It was a September Wednesday evening and we were one of three tables, so it was a slow night. The food was excellent and the service was just right. We would definitely go back again!

While the location is perfect, a quiet dock, tucked off to the side overlooking the harbor, the food and service are not good. I ordered the Halibut, which was the fish of the day. The portion was generous but the sauce on top was terrible. It was a mix of cream and mustard saturating the fish. My husband had the... More

Even though we go to this restaurant only 3 to 5 times a year we always feel as if we're being welcomed as family. Rosa ross the owner/chef always welcomes us by name as well as do other staff members. The food is excellent and family and friends enjoy their experiences at Scrimshaw. We also like the bar.

Chef Rosa was the sweetest, and made a custom vegetarian meal since the restaurant was slow that day. It appeared that either the staff was outside on the dock with us, or the waitstaffs friends were sitting outside and the waitstaff kept joining them. We waited over 20 minutes for a glass of water, and then another 20 minutes for... More

The food and wine were delicious - we wanted to sit on the deck but it was just too windy. Every dish had a unique flavor and was amazing. The poached lobster was perfectly cooked and the wine was great!

We've been dining at Scrimshaw for many years. In fact, this was always a "special occasion" restaurant. Recently, we visited and we feel it has gone down a notch. Maybe their well-known chef is not in the kitchen much? The food, service and presentation is only average to good, but we expected more. The setting outside is lovely on the... More

The food was good. The dining room was a converted warehouse and it looks it. Service was very attentive. There is an option to sit outside on the pier.

I don't understand the negative reviews because our food was AMAZING!!! Look, it's a seasonal town so I can understand if you get spotty service - but ours was fine! We started with the chowder and the dumplings. Our mains were the bouillabaisse and the salmon. And EVERYTHING was delicious. We will definitely return on our next visit to Greenport.
