Here with some friends for dinner. $29.95 twin lobsters. Always good clams and oysters. Nothing fancy, just good seafood. Several choices of beer and a full bar too. Try it when you are in Lindenhurst.

Went here to fulfill seafood craving and I will never go back. My boyfriend and I got excited when we saw Maryland Blue Claw Crabs on the menu. We ordered them Old Bay style--which should have meant, steamed with Old Bay Seasoning. We get them...they are covered in garlic, peppers and not a drop of Old Bay. I tell the... More

This was our first meal in New York, and I thought this place would be off the chain given the amount of people. I was wrong. the beer was lukewarm, we waited almost an hour for our food, and when it came, the corn on the cob was soggy and the King crab was not even cracked/slit for easy opening!... More

We've been coming here for years.(incidentally, an hour's drive from home) The place was never fancy, but the seafood was dependable and fresh. We went there yesterday and it was terrible. there was only one person behind the order counter, who disappeared while we were waiting to order. After ordering, we went to get drinks at the beverage bar. Again,... More

This place is horrible. Outside sign says, "Two twin lobsters $23.99"... person taking order said, 'It's really $28.99"... I asked for the twin lobsters... and asked if one could be broiled and the other steamed... they said sure and charged me for to single lobsters at $18.99 a piece. They won't correct the mis-priced lobsters. Manager was very pissy about... More

Over the last 20 years, Southside has been my family's choice for fresh seafood. We buy all of our fresh fish there but have only eaten in the restaurant a handful of times. The quality has always been superior.

Southside is a frequently visited place by the locals. They offer fresh seafood at competitive prices. As far as the restaurant, I feel its lackluster and I could be a bit cleaner. The food is mediocre, but were back to the fair prices so in my opinion it's a matter of choice. Sure you can visit a restaurant that's cleaner... More

I would give Southside a 5 except there are plastic utensils. I don't mind waiting on line and serving myself but I hate plastic utensils. The fish is very good and fresh.

I went one night I guess around closing time. The restaurant was full and there was a long line to order. I waited about 10 minutes online and then was told that it it was now too late to order. The previous time I went the crab legs were so soggy you could not even crack them. Some of the... More
