Been to this restaurant before and never had any problems like we did yesterday. We sat at a table outside for approximately a half hour waiting to be waited on. We watched other people come in after us and they got waited on right away. After waiting that long we decided to leave. My husband went into the restaurant and... More

I've been here a few times and when I leave I keep saying, remind me not to come back. Well, we went again, and were disappointed yet again! The food is less than ordinary, today I had the crab cakes, $24.50 and they were two small over breaded mashes. Hubby had the burger and that was even overcooked. I realize... More

Best lobster roll and lobster salad on Long Island. Great place to stop for lunch or dinner on way east or west on Long Island. Excellent fries and sweet potato fries. Casual food inside or out. A favorite stop for us.

They serve Lobster Rolls in a variety of ways. We had it stuffed in a giant beefsteak tomato. There is plenty of lobster meat and there is not a lot of mayonnaise. Service was very attentive. The only downside was the price - $24.50.

Are you a restaurant or are you a fishy McDonalds? Restaurant prices, but Drinks arrived in disposable plastic cups (I wonder if they dispose them) Dinner likewise arrived on plastic plates. They would have been great at a picnic, but not at a table service restaurant. Everything we ordered- conch, calamari, crabcakes, was obviously mass produced frozen food, not locally... More

We have come here with the kids for the past few months and have really enjoyed. Nice variety on the menu and nice outdoor seating. Much more tranquil than the hassle and bustle of the south shore

I've been here a number of times and each time I wonder why I've come back. I realize it's usually at someone else's suggestion. I love blowfish (aka"puffers") and at one time this was the only place to get them. I've since had them elsewhere and they've been much better. The staff is terrific and don't rush you but my...

My wife and I heading back from the orient point ferry had the urge for a lobster roll. By chance we stumbled upon lobster roll which is a cute informal restaurant serving lobster fare. We started our meal with their lobster bisque which was bowl cleaning yum followed by their lobster which had abundant lobster claw and had definitely made... More

Every time I visit my home town, shelter island, I never pass up the opportunity to stop for a lobster roll to eat on the way out. Great portion size, awesome fries,huge dill pickle and a side of slaw! It's a little pricy but definitely worth the splurge!!! Can't wait to go back!!!

Wonderful restaurant with an attentive wait staff and good feel. We ate a late lunch at the restaurant and the staff was friendly and nice. The food was fresh and tasty. The lobster roll was excellent, with just the right blend of lobster, celery, etc... and large chunks of lobsters. Very relaxing.
