Staff does not speak or understand english well. Said they had no clams, but served them to the next table. They tell you at the end that they only take American Express and cash and their ATM machine is out of order.

Dory has been there for years. Great view overlooking Chase Creek. The food is average to good - depending on what you order. My wife had fish and it was well prepared. I had the steak, a bit chewy. They provide excellent music / jazz bands for after dinner. Make a reservation.

Really expensive for awful food! Sodas were flat and their "pink " lemonade was just water with a pink color. Do not recommend this restaurant at all!

Overpriced- even for SI standards! Nice for a drink on the back deck overlooking the water but definitely not for dinner. Maybe would've hung around for another round if the live music had been rockin'. Buuuuuut it wasn't.

Walked in based on past experirnce. What a mistake. Staff were non-english speaking, did not offer specials, did not know the menue, asked for Russian dressing on a wedge salad and told it was not available. Mussels were large,tough, cold and had to ask for bread. I am surprised that they are #24 out of 25. If there were 50... More

I was a little taken aback by the invitation of a friend to join him for dinner at this restaurant after reading the reviews. My husband and I were certainly pleasantly surprised by our experience. The restaurant is not much to look at from outside but is rather nice inside and the back outdoor view is beautiful. The hostess was... More

Hey folks...don't patronize this place. The food was moderate at best and it took over an hour to get our food...but more importantly, the ownership is shockingly rude. I would have left before eating there due to the signs (see attached images), but our crew was hungry. After the meal, I stopped the hostess to politely say that these signs... More

The Dory has a nice atmosphere. My husband and I ate on the deck. It was a beautiful afternoon. The tables were very close together... uncomfortably so. The waitstaff had some trouble with English. This required them to repeat every thing we ordered. They did get the order correct. I could see this being a problem during a busy period.... More

I had delicious mussels, the fried calamari was perfect (not often the case in many restaurants) and the salads were fresh and tasty. The view is absolutely breathtaking. The service was attentive and friendly. We've been there twice in our week in Shelter Island.
