Made the reservation with credit card info yesterday for special lobster dinner tonight. Took $20 ferry to the island tonight. Lo and behold! They didn't have our reservation AND they didn't have any lobsters left AND the owner merely said "sorry." Nothing offered to soothe our anger because of this annoying situation. That's a stingy business plan. We won't be... More

Don't waist your time and I mean time. Waited for food for 1.5 hours. Ignored for our time there. No water refills till asked for. Had to ask twice for the bill. Rude waitress. Advertised special out front but told that it is sold out as was my second choice on the menu. Food mediocre . I am strongly not... More

The decor is old and established. I went there to listen to the live music and have a glass of wine. The music is very good and I enjoyed the wine. I met some interesting local characters at the bar.

This is a shelter island gem. One of the few places left where you can just have a beer and relax with locals. The super cool bar is full of totally random bric-à-brac . Meals are pricey but the view is amazing from the back room, a total surprise. Of they just stocked a few gluten free beers(not ciders) they'd... More

This little resturant in located on the Main Street is shelter island which is a delightful island off the north fork of Long Island. Anyway back to the resturant. The view out the back of the resturant is lovely view of a bay. We were there drunk the week for lunch only a few people in the resturant. The waitress... More

The food is so-so at this old ship on Shelter Island. The ambiance is rustic bordering on shabby (picture a frat house basement on the water). On a recent visit to town, our young child needed to use the restroom, although we weren't eating at the restaurant at the time. The bar tender rudely refused to let her use the... More

Went to the Dory with my family; 3 children and 3 adults. We were seated right away and then sat for 45 minutes before the waitress took our orders. Then we waited another 45 minutes before the food was served. The service was so bad that it didn't make a different whether the food was good or not. What a... More

Great restaurant with high value, especially in the "near" off-season when warm weather outdoor dining is possible

This is the perfect place for a cold beer and a burger. The entrees are not bad as well but the real value here is the setting on the back porch. A true Shelter Island gem.

The Dory is a mainstay of Shelter Island, not for the trendy set, but on a week night you'll see the locals drinking and dining at the bar. The menu is pub like, but with good variety and well prepared, Check their times for food, on a recent visit I had dinner on a Sunday but they were closed Monday... More
