A warm welcome is the first thing you feel when you go to Sweet Tomato's - an island favorite! Pizza is delicious and the salads are fresh, flavorful and abundant. :) Short ribs fall off the bone! Enjoy he sitcom 'Cheers" ambiance at the bar, or dine in the white table cloth dining room, or outdoor on the front porch... More

Service was very slow. The food was ok, average. Not the best place on the island. Many other places to choose from

This was our 4th trip to Shelter Island Heights in 5 years. Now that the Chequit Inn and Restaurant has closed, visitors to the Island who don't have a car have even fewer options for restaurants. Sadly, Sweet Tomato's has become more over-priced and the food has gone down-hill. Stick with the pizzas and stay away from the $13 miniscule... More

One of the few places on Shelter Island open mid week off season. Service was spotty but friendly. Both of our appetizers were excellent but the pasta entrees were very ordinary. Thought the prices were acceptable. Nice atmosphere and great photos of the old island.

Food was delicious and fresh. We had a chicken cutlet with fresh greens and cheese risotto, which was tender, delicious and well presented. The service was also top notch. It's a small cozy place worthy of a visit.

While we have eaten at Sweet Tomato’s a half dozen times over the past few years and this was the first time we have had a below average meal. Perhaps the rush of the Labor Day weekend had tired them out, but the service and food had a lot to be desired. First we ordered the Roasted Beet Salad with... More

Dinner was a little "hit and miss" One of us had a great appetizer, the other was so-so. Same with the entrees - one awesome, one was so-so. We shared a dessert (chocolate lava cake) which was completely cooked so there was no "lava" in the middle but the ice cream with the cake was excellent. Service was wonderful and... More
