Catching up

Love the Wantagh Inn a little slice of Ireland , Long Island style. The food is delicious , price is right and ambiance is comfy. Met a friend and were able to leisurely catch up , no rushing us out. Could have stayed longer but it was a work night! The owner greets you like a old friend in his... read more

I have lived in Wanagh my whole life. My family has had many celebrations here and many fond memories. Best prime rib in town, best beer on rap. Fast friendly service. Mike is very courteous, makes you feel right at home. In the Winter be sure to sit by the fireplace.

We happen to stop in no reservation. Staff was excellent. Food was outstanding. Delicious salad ~ dressed very well. I had fillet mignon ~ cooked perfectly! My husband had shrimp scampi. He really enjoyed. I always get extra veggies in lieu of the starch ~ they were excellent. Fresh tasting cooked nicely!!

My wife and I were given a gift card/certificate last Christmas to dine here, otherwise we probably wouldn't have ever dined here. It is a nice older place, with older town patrons. Even the wait staff are older folks. I'm pushing 50, and I felt too young to be here. The menu is not extensive, although they do have daily... More

skip this place for sure, the food is way over priced, premium price for bar slop. drinks over priced also. Nasty bar tender "Mike" no buy backs on drinks they act like your doing them a favor for coming in.Dirty bathrooms not good. Spend your money else where you will have more fun.

The Wantagh Inn has been my go to place for over four years now. The food & drinks are top notch. Along with a consistently great meal the people are what makes you go back time and time again. Mr. Dunphy (the owner) is as kind and professional as you can get. He is the definition of a true gentleman.... More

Wow...The veal and Jagerschnitzel are the best on the menu...Well made drinks and excellent food. The place is always packed. After dinner on Saturday nights catch the Band "Volcano". Gene is up there with Eric Clapton on guitar. John on bass is only second to Jack Bruce . Stu's vocals are great and the drummer is to notch. Standing room... More
