My husband and I celebrated his birthday with a delicious dinner, pleasant guitarist in the background, and a gracious waitress. The menu is varied enough to please both a vegetarian and a steak lover and the homemade corn bread is moist and just enough to complement a salad. We have been to this restaurant for lunch and dinner and have... More

This is a small, clean and well run restaurant in an otherwise lonely little town on the East End of Long Island. Food is good and the prices are not exorbitant.

We had a coupon for this restaurant and was pleasantly surprised with the atmosphere. Very pleasant restaurant. The entertainment was great too (music from the 60's to 80's) I had short ribs that were to die for. Price was right,entertainment was great, atmosphere was pleasing and great food.

Ended up eating here after trying to eat at Tweeds without a reservation. We were seated immediately. It was a Saturday night and they had live music. Sort of nice. Place was clean. Cornbread was good. Salmon was yummy. Husband did not enjoy the short ribs or the sauce they were served in. Staff was attentive.

Decent food but loud. Service is lacking sincerity. Snotty bar tender, not professional at all. Rushed service. There is far better pla:es. Try Justins near Carrier Circle.

I got roped into eating at this place with two friends who are Farm to Table , and Gluten Free fans. Generally...these restaurants are a dissapointment to my Completely-Self-Admitted,Uncultured-Palette. I always end up paying 75$ for sawdust on a mystery green thing, and a crappy cocktail...ugh. But I love my friends, and I just eat a yogurt when I get... More

Always love the food here! Gluten free choices and never disappoints! Consistent and flavorful. Very American menu... I would come here every week if this were closer to home

Here was a last minute place for us on July 4th Weekend, the tap beer was good a local brew. The Lobster roll was unauthentic and tasted like cat food. The Mac And Cheese that my daughter had was pretty good. the most amazing part of the meal was the strawberry soup infused with a basil-like sauce. It was memorable... More
