A family foursome, we had Sunday(5/21/17) lunch on the patio. Great view of the harbor. Everything was topnotch from start to finish - service, selection, presentation, taste, not too pricey - an overall wonderful experience.

We've been dining @ RHI for over 25 years. Like a good wine, it only gets better each year. Chef Joe Smith is extremely creative. Service excellent. Owners attention to detail shows. A must go when visiting Shelter Island.

We hadn't been here in a number of years because the Island rumor was that the food wasn't that good.......well, we were pleasantly surprised! Along with the lovely view, the food and drinks were excellent. We had a table outside and enjoyed at special evening!
