Big portions why bother

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

It was too late when I read the previous reviews on Trip Advisor.... We went to The Dory. Never has there been a restaurant in more need of a Gordon Ramsey 'make over'. Great location and appalling in most other ways. The other reviews say it all. The owner informed us he has been in the business for 40 years.... More

You'll find fish, lobster rolls, burgers, standard salads and simple starters with a fresh water view. Come by car with limited parking or by boat to Picozzi's dock area. Avoid the hype, trendy others and leave with a happy belly!

Ate here with my wife on 7/14/15. The place looks quaint, nice river view but it's all downhill from there. Upon being seated I asked for 2 glasses of ice water. The waitress brought the water but it was warm and stuff was floating in the water. Requested 2 more and we were brought warm water again. We both ordered... 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!!

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 it.... More
