The flavor-rich gazpacho was velvety and chilled, exactly what one hopes for on a hot summer's afternoon such as today. The oyster nachos were delicious. The oysters were tender and the had just the right crispy coating.

We checked out trip advisor before coming and expected a fabulous meal based on the ratings. However, I was very disappointed with the fish tacos. The fish taco that I ordered was a piece of heavily fried fish on a corn tortilla with some lettuce and nothing else. It was one of the more expensive tacos that I have ordered... More

We apologize for your unexpectedly unpleasant meal! Our codfish tacos have been mentioned twice this summer in Newsday as some of the best in Long Island! They come ready-to-dress with our own salsa verde, guacamole & red pickled onions. Did you not receive these tasty items? Please mention your meal to me next time you are in the neighborhood &...

Everytime I stay nearby to Greenport I always stop by Salamanders to pick up a batch of fried chicken and tons of sides. This is ALWAYS a hit with the family and myself as the chicken is really tasty. Often I don't make it home before I get a piece out of the bag and eat it. They also have... More

Hello notathomeeatout, Thanks so much for the happy & kind review! We are so glad we please you. Yes, so many of the special (& some exotic) products on our shelves are for people who need a quick but delicious meal. Lots of "convenience foods," of the local &/or imported variety. Please keep coming back & say hello next time! More

After a day of shopping and wandering around Greenport, we stopped in at Salamanders for an early dinner. Based on other reviews on TA, I was hopeful that this was a good spot. The restaurant wasn't busy and we were seated in a quiet spot towards the back. We looked over the menu and asked our server a few questions... More

Dear bkacker, We are sad to learn that your meal was disappointing. We try so hard to source only the best ingredients available. Apparently your server was uninformed as to ingredients & preparations. This is inexcusable! But to hear our fried chicken was greasy! This was indeed an "off" night! Please let me (Claudia,) know next time you're in the... More

Nice place in Greenport for take away. The fried chicken is sooo good as is their salads. They are not always on the ball when it comes to pre-ordering.

Salamanders is a hybrid take out and dine in establishment. The dine in part of the equation is nothing to write home about. The take out side ranges from very good to excellent. It has earned a reputation for making the best fried chicken ever. On the sandwich offerings I can recommend the soft shell crab and the fried oyster.... More

Awesome gluten free roast veggie dish. Fish tacos were really just fish like in fish and chips in a tortilla but still light and good. Huge chicken salad sandwich. Nice place for a beer and a high quality lunch. Friendly if slow service . Very kid friendly. Nice bar scene on first level. A winner .

We just stopped in for a snack and I was impressed by the menu. I had the fish and chips. The Cod was in a light flaky batter. Instead of tarter sauce they had a scallion sauce that was awesome!
