The casual setting is great for a summer lunch. Umbrellas provide shade, and there is a bit of breeze from the waterfront, just yards away. At this seafood restaurant, not one of us has fish. Burgers and the chop salad were ordered. The food came in a reasonable time. We did not feel rushed as we lingered to talk.

Very good seafood, 'white tablecloth' restaurant. Wide selection of sea food, including a raw bar. Reasonable, but not great, beer selection.

We have never eaten inside, only outside, and have enjoyed each visit. The tables all have umbrellas so you can have sun or not. There is also a bar/rail/counter that you can sit at. There is nothing better than dining outside in nice weather. The prices are a bit expensive but you are paying for the atmosphere and you have... More

Ok food my linguini and clams were good tasting but the chef feels the need to cut up the linguini into child size pieces missed the mark very strange! The cappucino was served warm the view saved the experience

Visited late on a gorgeous Tuesday afternoon. Sat on the deck for cocktails and the Naan appetizer. It was very enjoyable. So much so we decided to pick up our dinner guests and return for dinner.

We celebrated my birthday at Wave this past Saturday night. We have dined here before without complaints, but this dinner was beyond disappointing. We ordered three appetizers, but only two were served simultaneously. My salad arrived about 30 minutes later. I believe that our waitress forgot about us, as she did not take our dinner order until we were done... More

Visited Port Jefferson ,New York the 4th of July weekend. Of course due to the holiday all the restaurants were packed .So we decided to go to the Dansford Inn for dinner.

The meal I will say was really good. We had steak and pork chops and enjoyed it. The table was near the window and nice view of harbour, but the AC was on full and freezing.

Great experience. After a lot of waterfront dining in Long Island coming up short, this was a breath of fresh air. I made reservations for Wave- but side note that doesn't include the outside deck- that was a separate hostess. So we decided to wait the 10 minutes to sit outside. They called us at exactly 10 minutes and sat... More
