Aside from the view, this is a place you can miss if you are out on the North Fork. The prices are high and the food is average at best. I ordered sea food (why not) and was surprised to see the menu was really limited and lots of the food was fried or smothered in sauces. The wine list... More

We love A Lure. Beautiful location on the water. Great food with nice local beers on tap and Long Island wine selection. Have a drink at the bar, but DON'T eat at the bar if you want a knowledgeable server. Opt for a table with a server that actually knows the menu. We ordered oysters and wanted to make sure... More

the Wait staff only cared about get drinks and was unable to focus to give the kitchen out diet restriction to the kitchen. Avoid if you want any service.

We have been patrons of this restaurant for years as the food is good however, the waitstaff and management have made this restaurant so un appealing that I don't think we will ever return. The busboys are extremely belittling and the manager was condescending. After an extremely long work week, we would look forward to going to alure for a... More

Wonderful meal in a great setting overlooking a harbor. The service was good and we sat outside despite the threat of rain. Prices were reasonable

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
