The Albatross has been our go to place since 1991. Every year we all get together for two days to enjoy the beach but nighttime is for the "Tross". The music, the bar, the staff....No place better!

On a Sunday, they had exactly what I wanted and it was on special; calamari. It took forever to come and when it did it was cold, oily, and all batter. So disappointed.

Went in to get a rest from the heat. Nice selection of local draft beers, frozen cocktails and bar food favorites.

The Albatross has good service, dependable food and a nice and relaxing atmosphere. Best items are fried chicken, steamers, Neptune salad (when they offer it) and Pumphouse merlot.

This is one of the few restaurants on Fire Island without a view of the bay! Other than that, the food is great!

They have a 10$ seafood special. We got Mussels and Calamari, both were excellent. This was probably the best Calamari I ever had! The mussels came with dipping bread, and when it was gone, we got another complementary basket. The service was also excellent!

the ONLY restaurant on Fire Island with FANTASTIC food AND service. The steamers, although pricey at $24 were the best I've ever had! Ate here twice in 3 days. Mussels , fish tacos, fried calamari were also delicious.

Albatross has the best food. It doesn't have a view of the water though. But it is one of my favorite places to eat. I love their fish tacos.
