Not What I Thought!

Went to the Dory with my family; 3 children and 3 adults. We were seated right away and then sat for 45 minutes before the waitress took our orders. Then we waited another 45 minutes before the food was served. The service was so bad that it didn't make a different whether the food was good or... read more

Great restaurant with high value, especially in the "near" off-season when warm weather outdoor dining is possible

This is the perfect place for a cold beer and a burger. The entrees are not bad as well but the real value here is the setting on the back porch. A true Shelter Island gem.

The Dory is a mainstay of Shelter Island, not for the trendy set, but on a week night you'll see the locals drinking and dining at the bar. The menu is pub like, but with good variety and well prepared, Check their times for food, on a recent visit I had dinner on a Sunday but they were closed Monday... More

My friends and I have eaten here a few years ago and enjoyed the lovely view and good food however although the view remains appealing the food today was not. The fish tacos were awful. When we complained we were told that although the menu listed the fish as mahi mahi,they had substituted it with striped bass. I have eaten... More

Horrible service, decent food, but dirty. Several of the tablecloths around us were covered with moldy spots. Dirty glasses, silverware, etc. I would not go back.

The place has old time charm, has a great seating area overlooking a beautiful pond. It is a little kitchy, which is great fun. The problem started with the restaurant losing the info on our prepaid dinner ( it was a special event with a prix fixe menu) The waitress asked if we wanted drinks but didn't provide anything listing...

The view from the back of the restaurant was nice. We waited a long time after ordering for our food to arrive. The mussels I ordered were definitely not good, they took them back without a problem. Everyone else in the group had their meal, so not to hold the group up I ordered clam chowder. It was OK tasting,... More

Come for a drink. THAT'S IT! Rotten salad with my $22? Dollar lobster salad in avocado (about 1/4 cup if that much of lobster). Bad fish taco! All cabbage. Not bad raw oysters (nothing to cook there!) Good fries. Ok, that means, come for the fries, a beer and the view. THAT'S IT! Oh yeah, how about checking the bathroom... More

What a terrible disappointment to dine on the deck with a beautiful river setting and have really bad food. Do not order clams or shrimp cocktail. The mussels were a mixed bag of some good, some bad, with many beards left on and bits of shell. The shrimp cocktail - rip-off $17.00 -medium sized, room temperature, dried out. The only... More
