Nice family restaurant

Very friendly family restaurant, though a little pricey for families and considering regular seafood fare. Food is okay, though not the best in the area. Good bar and live music at night on weekends.

Just a fun place by the water to enjoy a drink, good food and good music. Never been disappointed there. Service friendly and efficient, food good with healthy portions and local musicians keep you entertained.

The people who work here & run this place are amazingly nice & friendly. They make you feel at home. The food is awesome! Everyone was more than pleased with their meal. I'd recommend this place to everyone.

We discovered Scampi a few years ago and have returned each time we are in the area. The service is prompt and friendly. The food is very good. The prices are fair. Casual atmosphere near the water on Island Park. Consistent and friendly.

I like to judge a restaurant initially by the greeting and sense of hospitality. We were completely ignored by the hostess for 20 minutes. We finally got a table and waited another 20 minutes for a waitress to arrive. We asked for bread and drinks as we told her of our long wait but it didn't seem to matter. She... More

Been there for lunch for business and friends and it was very good. - Love that seafood pizza. Tested it for dinner with local friends and family from Boston and we thought it was great! We were a bit all over the place for ordering but the waitress was a GEM. She guided us through the menu and we all... More

The soups were very delicious. The fish was good, the sweet potato fries were good, too. However, $21 for an average sized portion of fish and chips is simply way overpriced. Asking for a kids size portion, I was told that it would be same as a regular meal (meaning fish with fries, onion rings and cole slaw), just smaller.... More

So... We get a night out every once in a great while. We have 3 children and 2 full time jobs. When a night out can happen we choose Scampi's specifically on a Friday night. First, there is always congestion at the door. It's just that good. You walk in and your completely underwhelmed by the cliche nautical decor. You... More

I really liked when there was a piano player. The decor was average. The menu is very expensive. The drinks are really expensive , but consistently mixed perfectly! The food is fresh and consistently flavored the same visit after visit. The service is friendly. The bar crowd is good entertainment when there isn't music. Good seafood at gouge - the... More
