Blackfish Special was very good

Dined the other day with two friends, prices reasonable. One of the specials the other night was Blackfish, local caught, was extremely good. Kudos to the brick oven they have.

Took ferry over last weekend to see what shelter island had to offer. The restaurant came recommended from a staff member on the ferry so we went and tried! The restaurant had a very nice ambiance and it felt cozy and romantic. However, due to the bad service this experience could have been better. I agree with previous reviews that... More

We missed Sweet Tomato's last winter when it closed and when it reopened we tried it and was disappointed. But now they have a great menu back, reasonable prices and great service. Perfect place for a delicious but reasonably priced meal and nice ambiance.

Excellent dinner and so happy to have learned that the restaurant is back to being managed by the the owners. We have going there for years but were disappointed in May when we learned that the restaurant was under new management. Taking a chance on it this weekend we were pleasantly surprised to learn the good news. The first thing... More

Went in April, right after it was taken over by new owners. Food and service was not as good as under previous owners.

People recommended the place to us. The service was nice enough. The place is nice. We sat outside on the porch. But it was pricey. My wife had a specialty drink she had to send back because she didn't like the taste. That was just a harbinger unfortunately. I ordered "the world famous" short ribs. I'm not sure what they...

Few words to start: 1) OVERPRICED!!!!! 2) Chef doesn't know how to cook seafood!!! Mine was overcooked!!! 3)They gave us 3 slices of bread for 3 people!!! 4) Unqualified stuff With olive oil they bring only 1 slice of bread per person!!! I ordered the most expensive dish (43$) consisting of half lobster, shrimps, clams and mussels over spaghetti. My... More

My boyfriend and I ate here in early September, after Labor Day. The waiter was very attentive and explained the menu. We really enjoyed our food (lobster sandwiches)and location outside on the porch/veranda with views of the street and town. Close proximity to ferry a plus. Would go back next time on Shelter island!
