As of 7/9/14, restaurant declines to take reservations. You may want to roll the dice on this lovely but maddeningly inconsistent spot, but we don't. I think they think they're in the Hamptons. Take us to DEFCON 3.

The wonderful location and view from the deck is the only reason I rated this restaurant AVERAGE...deserves less than that. The food was only average, the crabcake was OK but was supposed to be served with a bean salad...came with a few strands of lettuce. When we asked our server about it she said they ran out of the bean... More

Fantastic fresh seafood and the salads were really great too. I had plain lobster and my friend had the nut- encrusted fresh fish. Nice view of the small harbor.

Ordered the whole flounder on the fixed price menu. That item was no longer available so had the nut encrusted flounder. Prior to that ordered the fried calamari as an appetizer. The calamari was over cooked. The flounder was a very large piece of fish, and was OK. Cathy our waitress was terrific in spite of serving lot of tables... More

We began with beautifully made cocktails, had a delicious appetizer of oysters followed by our entrees, chioppino! We had asked for a slight kick to the sauce and weree rewarded with a great meal. This dish rivals the original in San Fransisco! We had a Travelzoo certificate, so the meal was a bargain!

A Lure on Main Road in Southold is one of my favorite restaurants on the North Fork. The food is consistently fresh, flavorful, and well prepared, the service is friendly and efficient, and the view of the Port of Egypt Marina and the Bay is beautiful in the summer and peaceful in the off-season.

Visited here during a visit to LI Winterfest and found a new favorite in Southold. They were participating in the winterfest and had a very talented musician/singer during the dinner hours. Food was fresh - service was great and the view (during the summer) will be spectacular. Another bonus - they have an extensive list of Long Island wines!

A great find on the North Fork. We were a table of 8 and our waitress, Deb, was great. The Prix-Fixe offered many choices and everyone raved about their food. We will be going back again!

On Thanksgiving the Prix-Fixe meat loaf and mashed potatoes alternative for non-Turkey lovers really hit the spot with 2 meals of leftovers to take home. There are hardly any restaurants on the North Fork to get a good meal at a decent price and we were pleasantly surprised here. To the service, we liked you, but leave the gossip about... More

My husband and I went for an early evening Saturday night dinner. Service was attentive and our waitress was extremely charming and efficient. We were pleased with our appetizers, the excellent wine menu, entrées, dessert, coffee and after dinner drinks. My raw oysters were sweet and the entrée a salmon on a bed of lentils, spinach, and onion relish surrounded... More
