Great farm to table fare

Love this little restaurant/store! Great food and wines with a little bar to chill at right on the main drag in Greenport. Everything is fresh and tasty.

My experience here was absolutely amazing. Upon arriving we were greeted at the door by the charismatic Bryan, he maintained his fabulous customer service the entire time. To start we had the tomato ginger soup and the mushroom soup, which are made in house and they have the fresh taste to prove it. My parents both ordered the Sal Club,... More

I consider myself a foodie from NYC and this fried chicken is one of the best I have ever had. They have great international sides to accompany which are also very good too. A must for perfect fried chicken

This gem of a restaurant and take out spot cannot be missed! The food is fresh and delicious. Their fried chicken is really the best on Long Island, crispy and not at all greasy. They serve healthful salads and a variety of local favorites. Tables are few and small, and the ambience is more delicatessen than haute, but for flavor,... More

Although small and very popular for take out - you should try the small bar for dinner. Food is first class and the service from Aceina was a delight. Perfect location within walking location to the marina and all other activities

Salamanders has been our favorite place in Greenport since last year. We enjoy their well prepared, and seasonally fresh, farm dishes. Last weekend we were there for breakfast and lunch. A better meal, there isn't. Because the dishes are made to order we expect to wait a bit longer but when my husband's huevos rancheros came we squealed with delight!... More

Wife and I had a nice dinner. I had chicken pot pie and my wife had fried chicken. Both were very good. Greenport is becoming more like the $outh fork. But still a nice place.

While Salamanders has grown into a full service restaurant, I have been using them for take out for 3 years. Their fried chicken is world class, and so are their sandwiches. Try the soft shell crab and the po' boy. Call ahead, breeze in to pick up and you can't go wrong!
