Absent waiter

Went for $21 steak night. The size and quality of the NY Strip was very good. However, I asked for Medium temperature and the steak came out barely over rare. I asked for well done fries and they came out mushy. But the biggest knock was the absent waiter. Sure, he was friendly when he took... read more

We have found a new favorite Sunday evening restaurant. Sunday's are steak night so you can choose which ever your favorite is. And if you're not into beef the salads are huge. But do yourself a favor and get some wonderful crunchy fries.

My husband and I enjoyed an absolutely delicious meal at Dowlings last night for a much-needed date night. I have severe food allergies, so dining out is a challenging feat at times. Although my husband has dined there previously, this was my first time. After explaining my allergies (all mammal meat, dairy and their byproducts) to our waiter, he checked... More

It took almost two hours for us to get our food while being entertain by amateur performers. My father can't have pepper and informed the waiter of this, so the waiter brings him a steak with pepper all over it. The food was good but the service was horrible.

Thought we would try this place. Greeted at the door by Mr. Non Personality. Finally got seated. Although they were not busy , we sat at our table for over 10 minutes and were never acknowledged by any body including the server. Decided they were not interested in our business and left.

We ate dinner here with friends on 12/9/14 at around 6:30 on a cold and rainy night. The atmosphere was warm and congenial and for a Tuesday night it seemed fairly active. I had angel hair pasta with meat balls, which 3 of us had and it was delicious, seasoned well, and the pasta was cooked just fine. One friend... More

It was about 6:30 PM on a Friday night in prime season. Finding a restaurant or parking spot in Sag Harbor at that time was a challenge. So we thought we would try that little place we drove by the day before. And sure enough we drove up and there were a couple of parking spaces. Once inside, the restaurant... More

Felt in the mood for a steak . Saw their outside sign and decided to try the restaurant. For the money ($20) plus $2 for baked potato is was not too bad. However, the service was slow and not very attentive and extremely noisy.

Just 20 minutes past Sag Harbor's Main St you'll fund an excellent limch and dinner spot away from the summer crowds. Excellent value for money with a hearty unpretentious menu guaranteed to satisfy meat, fish and vegetable lovers. Arugula salad with fried goat cheese is delicious. The calamari is is the best in the area.
