Dinner at Elbow East

We had dinner at Elbow East a few nights ago and were very happy with the service and the food. Our waiter always had a smile and was very personable and helpful. The place has a nautical decor. We had the surf and turf and it was delicious! We were at Kenny's Beach all day then went to dinner... read more

Recommended by staff at Sparkling Pointe. Very plain/not fancy - but steaks to die for. Dinner was reasonable and food was very good.

The seafood platter was perfect to split and delicious. Friendly staff, not expensive and local wine list.

We vacation in Southold from the gourmet ghetto of California every year.(And have done so for nearly 40 years.) This is our favorite local restaurant, particularly Thursday's prime rib night. It is a steakhouse with the usual salad, potato meat serving. But it is funky, close to the beach, offers local Long Island wines, and on the few occasions when... More

Part of "Elbow" group ... food very good, ambience just ok, wish it were more comfortable. The best of the elbow group ... other Elbow restaurant not as good.

I was out visiting my father at a rehabilitation center close by, and saw the Elbow East sign on Sound Ave. Thought it was one of the Cliff's Elbow Room's restaurants (Used to be) so me and my gal stopped in. We had a couple of drinks and the bacon wrapped scallops, to die for! Will be back in couple... More

This is my favorite restaurant on the east end. Three things are very important to me when I dine out. 1) food yumminess, 2) staff friendliness, and 3) atmosphere. This restaurant has it all. As for the food, I am a filet mignon addict/aficionado and their marinated filet rocks. Yes they have some fine sweet potato fries too. My mom's... More

I dined here recently as we had heard that they were known for their steaks. Unfortunately, I ordered my steak medium-rare and it came to the table as medium - a little bit overcooked for my taste. The others in our party seemed to enjoy their food and would rate the restaurant a bit higher then I would.

The marinated steaks are fabulous. I love the swordfish tacos and sweet potato fries, broccoli with garlic.

I love this place. The steak and lobster was amazing! If you only go to Green port area for a day or two, stop by. The signage for the restaurant on the main road is small, so watch out for it
