Don't miss their wood burning stove. Fun Bar

This restaurant has a wood-burning stove they make a lot of their decision. Their fluke that they make in the stove is excellent as well as chicken dishes. There's a great bar in the restaurant and they serve a specific bar menu including pizzas and some interesting dishes. Very good food great... read more

My wife and I dined here on June 21st for dinner and well, not sure what to expect from the reviews on this site, as I was looking for something special - but a friend who is in the restaurant business near Mattituck had suggested this was THE choice, went for it and really, full marks on that call.

What happened? Ownership change? For years this restaurant has been a family favorite. Tonight the service was way too fast (from time of order of drinks to main course 25 mins!), the martini wrong, the crudo was not crudo and short rib and pappardelle was a disaster (meat was pot roast and pappardelle was crunchy). We want our Sweet Tomatoes... More

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.
