View awesome. Pricey

Awesome view! Nice atmosphere, food not up to my expectations but fresh. Pricey, but a pleasant experience.

My Mom and I went here before we caught the ferry and will def never go back. The service was horrendous and the prices were waaayyy too high for the quality of food. Our waitress may have been the worst waitress ever. I don't know how they are still in business...oh wait...probably bc they are the only restaurant in the... More

We were waiting for the ferry and asked at the ferry terminal for directions of a restaurant close by. The terminal staff told us there weren't restaurants close by but on our way out of terminal saw the sign for Orient by the Sea, right next to the terminal! We had a lovely lunch, served quickly as we were in... More

Four of us had lunch outside on the deck. It is a pretty spot at the very end of the North Fork with views over the Peconic Bay toward the South shore. The waitstaff was very attentive and friendly. The food, however, was mediocre and very expensive. A flounder sandwich fried is $14.95 but if you want it broiled, as... More

My New Yorker husband and I return to Long Island once or twice per yr from the Midwest and we always make sure he gets to eat fish. It was a cloudy,rainy day so we were not able to sit outside. We were quickly waited on and food was served in a very reasonable amount of time. We enjoyed scallops... More

When we go to Orient Pt. we always eat in Claudio's . But on the way home today we decided to try someplace different. From the road, this restaurant doesn't look that great, but after checking out the menu and the atmosphere we gave it a try. We ordered steamed mussels, BBQ cheddar hamburger, fried calamari and fish and chips... More

there aren't many places in Orient to choose from, decided on this one from the reviews. nice location on the water, indoor & outdoor seating. chose from the specials menu, we both had fish: the herb/bread crusted local blue fish was by far the better of the choices - the pan baked cod was tasteless, it could have use a...

My husband and I ate here upon recommendation of a local resident. The restaurant is spacious with both indoor and outdoor seating. The menu has something for everyone, adults and kids alike. We enjoyed the seafood a lot. Very fresh. Nice views with lots of docked boats wherever you looked. Good service - could have been a touch more attentive... More

We went to this restaurant specifically to get a lobster. It was only 7:30pm and they were sold out of it already! Poor planning as it is Saturday night in August for Gods sake. We had oysters for appetizer which was pretty good. But both the main dish we ordered, fried shrimp and lobster & shrimp ravioli were way below... More
