Great place friendly and open atmosphere no reservations needed not pretentious like many of the other restaurants in Southold and Greenport. Good food and a good time.

Thanks Joseph!! Glad we made a great, family, casual impression on you! We often get large parties unannounced, and we have no problem with that (as long as we have seating.) Many thanks for taking the time to give us a five-star review! I look forward to seeing you when you return. "Ees-ee-yee-ahh!" To your health! All the best, George... More

Very good food. We made a meal of appetizers - octopus, dolmades, saganaki, calamari and more. The waitress worked hard to meet our needs, despite having a pretty big territory to cover. We made a mistake by requesting an outdoor table, and ended up seated way too close to a raucous private party. Otherwise, a good dining experience. We'll be... More

Hi Susan! Thank you, and I apologize for the overzealous guests. Greek food brings the rowdy out of people. I am glad you enjoyed what most people call "mezzedes," or the Greek version of "Tapas."

Having had the pleasure of enjoying The North Fork of Long Island for over 30 years, we are hoping it will not change any more than it has had to over the years.

The 2 organic eggs with sprouted wheat toast, Kerrygold butter and hash browns was perfect. You get a piece of feta cheese and tomato on the side too which was a tasty little bonus. They use only organic eggs. Half the menu is gluten free. The wait between ordering to receiving the food was a bit long but not excessive.... More

Have not been to this restaurant in quite some time. But the times we have eaten here, the food is always excellent and service is good. Sometimes restaurant is so full we have gone elsewhere. Prices are medium.

Dear Santom37, I am a little confused. We always have an a lot of syrup on hand. We only use 100% maple syrup and in order to keep the cost down I buy it in very large quantities. I manage the inventory and nobody told me we were out and I am looking at a pretty large stack of cases... More
