Been here a few times, came with a large group. All plates were awesome. Tough to find parking but overall worth it. Shepard's pie was great. Abundant beverage list. Full bar, and good crowd.

Love this place for parties. I have had showers and now a communion in the upstairs room. The food is very good, price is affordable and waitstaff are awesome. Last party one of the waitresses handed me a diamond bracelet which she found. She could have easily put it right in her pocket. Turned out to be mine and I... More

It is great to have a place like Wantagh Inn in the neighborhood. However, despite the ambiance of the place and great staff, the food seems lacking in taste. The menu selection is interesting and reasonably priced. We had Salmon (for me), and Steak for my husband.

I along with a party of 6 others got together for a "business/social" lunch. The food was terrific. The appetizers were good portions and very tasty. For the main course the group orderd a variety of meals. I had the shepards pie, others had the pork chop, burger, seafood special and I along with all the others enjoyed every bite.... More

We have been there many times now and never disappointed in the least. The service is attentive and courteous, yet never imposing. The food is great and prices extremely reasonable. The bar area and crowd is fun and lively. Very convenient location, LIRR right across the street. Highly recommended!!

Mike Domfrey, from County Cork, started this place over three decades ago. It's friendly, economical and fun. The parking in the back is tight. Great luncheon menu and fixed price meals for seniors and bargain hunters.

As as a group of retirees, (15+)). We set up a special lunch. We were limited to 6-8choices plus beer or soft drinks. All choices were very good and the service was excellent. They accommodated us well and the price per person was very reasonable. Good memories, good times and good food.

Staff was lovely, food was great and the price was reasonable. There is a small parking lot in back of restaurant. We did make reservations but not sure if you always need them, the restaurant was full the night we went (a Sunday). Nice bar area too.
