The fried chicken was solid, the mushroom soup was great but certain dishes were over done. For example the clams with Thai broth was overwhelmed by a heavy handed dose of lemongrass that was just too much. The staff was ok but unhelpful. When asked for suggestions, the waitress she said she sells every item evenly. Obviously not the case.... More

Helo tasumner, Thanks for the feedback. Have already adjusted the sauce for the clams which WAS too thick! Our waitress is overworked as all our dear college kids are leaving for school. We're working on all your suggestions so hope you will return to try us again! More

The restaurant was definitely understaffed. That makes all the difference in a resort town in the Summer. The bartender waited tables and literally had to run from table to bar and back. I ordered an egg dish that I was told would take 20 minutes because it's baked in the oven. I was fine with that but my husband ordered... More

"We are not accepting take out chicken orders for the next 3 hours", was what I was told on a recent Saturday night. REALLY? ??? No apologies, no explanations. I happily spent my $60 elsewhere; at "Rotisserie" on the North Road in Southold. Actually, the same amount of chicken was half the price as Salamander, ready in 15 minutes, avoided... More

It sounds like somebody here needs some lessons in phone manners! So sorry we couldn't get you into our schedule yesterday. We make the chicken to order & limit the to-go orders to keep the kitchen able to serve the customers at the tables in the restaurant. Had you wanted, you could have eaten here! More

I haven't had fried chicken like this since I was a kid visiting friends in South Carolina, where their mom cooked real home cooked fried chicken..... This is the real deal here. Highly recommended! My wife had the cod fish and chips which was also great. Give Salamander's a try!

Run don't walk. Order ahead. Eat in or take out. Whatever you do, don't miss some of the best fried chicken we've ever had.

My husband, dive year old daughter and I stopped in today because the reviews sounded excellent and the menu appealed to me. The server who greeted us looked angry with us from the start. She nastily pushed us aside from the front of the restaurant and placed us in back because we had a child with us. She actually said... More

We are so dismayed by your review & the fact that you never tried our delicious food! Our server's rudeness is inexcusable. (However, we do not seat small children in the bar area after 4pm.) We apologize to you & hope you will come again & let me know when you come. Ask for Claudia, so I can make this... More

The restaurant is spotlessly clean, the service was friendly and attentive, the owner was welcoming and the food was consistently excellent. The produce was seasonal and juicy. Portions were generous and the menu was varied enough so that everyone found something special. We have been to Greenport many times and were not familiar with this restaurant. I can truly say...

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.
