Had lunch outside on the patio, Very nice relaxed atmosphere right next to the marina, Watch the ferry coming in and out, Food was excellent as was the service, Tables were a little close together but that was fine, Crab cake was very moist and tasty as was the lobster roll, I would definitely go back to this wonderful place

Took my mom here for her 60th birthday thinking would be so worth it. However it was decent at best , and our $200 bill for 3 entrees, appetizer and 4 drinks reall wasn't worth itS Drinks were tasty but very small . Our waitress was nice but seemed clearly overwhelmed. Not the best experience for the price, don't think... More

Dear Septemberx, Thank you for your review and for thinking of us for your Mom's 60th Birthday dinner. I am sorry to hear of your disappointment.

Set at the marina, the view from the room is breathe taking. The rooms are well maintained, parking lot IS small but during my stay we could park for free! We enjoyed a delightful meal at their restaurant , which set right at the waterfront.

This is an older hotel with seperate buildings. it is well maintained. There are a lot of stairs so make sure you ask for accessible if necessary. I was in the main building, through a secure door, up a narrow set of stairs to my door. To get to the room, after openin my door was another set of stairs.... More

We recently enjoyed two holidays at the restaurant wave at Danfords. The service was friendly and the food was great. Our favorite was the brunch. A perfect mix between breakfast choices including an omelette station and lunch dishes. There was a fresh seafood choice as well. My favorite was the omelette made to order. The new fold out windows allow... More

Great place to see the North Shore of Long Island. This restaurant is right on the water. The food is very good and so is the service. You can also watch the ferries come and go. When you are done, walk around the town which is very nice.

We came to Danford's to stay for a family wedding. We were able to check in early, so we could get ready. Our room was beautiful and fully appointed.

We stay at Danford's a couple of times per year primarily because their rates are fair, rooms large, and they are in a terrific location right in Port Jeff (we often take the Bridgeport Ferry to Port Jeff). There are a few things which are really starting to annoy, and we're ready to try someplace new. The most annoying thing... More
