The Wantagh Inn has been around for a long time.. Our recent visit was very enjoyable. Nice friendly feel with reasonably priced food. Salmon was delicious and Tartufo for dessert was a great treat. We had a wonderful time sharing this dinner with old and new friends.

The Wantagh is a favorite standby when you need a home cooked meal and you just don't feel like cooking. The staff is very pleasant and the manager Mary O is always ready to please. Owner Mike is a wonderful fellow who also aims to please. The Wantagh inn serves some of the best steak, pork and lamb chops around.... More

We visited the Wantagh Inn for an after theatre matinee dinner. We were 2 couples. I had the BBQ Baby Back Ribs. They were served with fries and cole slaw. The ribs were melt in your mouth delicious. It was a full rack and not a half rack that many restaurants serve. I couldn't finish and took a few ribs... More

This is one of your really old school pleasant dinner establishments. Not fancy, but clean crowded and great food. The atmosphere in the dining room beckons the old beach communities of Fire Island and Jones Beach, The large pub style bar area has high top seating and TVs for the sports appeal snacking.The menu is quite extensive with daily specials...

We love going to this local establishment. The owner, Mike Dunphy treats each patron as an honored family member. The menu at the Inn keeps changing and improving so we are always surprised by new choices. Old favorites such as Shepherd Pie continue to please. The servers are busy but take time out to make sure you are pleased with... More

Just had an outstanding dinner with my husband and his parents. Very often going out to eat on a holiday is nothing more than over priced sub standard food and rushed service. Not this time. Everything was perfect. The service and food were great. In fact a group leaving as were coming in said to us "this place is great... More

We had been to Wantagh Inn many years ago and all anyone could remember was that it was not very memorable. So we bypassed it (even though it is extremely close to home) for all those years. A couple of weeks ago, we decided to give it another try just because we were not in the mood to travel for... More

I have spent quite a few nights down at the Wantagh Inn since moving to Wantagh. The staff remembers our drinks, knows our faces and always greet us with a smile.

The Wantagh Inn might have been a decent place back in the day but I found the food to be disappointing and the service indifferent.
