With the extra money they charge for food they should remodel the bathroom!

We went on a weekend day trip to Shelter Island. From the outside it appears to be a dingy bar. You walk in past the bar to a great opened windowed back seating section that was nice and airy and clean despite the appearance of the front. We sat right on the open window over the water and loved... read more

Overall, just not recommended. I generally don't write negative reviews, but this one needs to be written. Overpriced for average to below food. After meal coffee had 1/4 teaspoon of coffee grains -no lie. Try somewhere else!!

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.
