We brought the family and different guests here twice in a 10 day stay in Northport. The menu satisfied people from ages 5 to 55. The pulled pork sandwich was a popular and filling choice for many. Non-meat eaters enjoyed both the black bean burger and the salad with grilled tuna. The service was friendly and the waiter was right on about a wine choice, even tho beer was the main focus for most adults in our party. Beats the typical burger and fries places more typical up here.

This was another stop on our Mario Batali recommendation tour. We ate lunch and had the pulled pork. It was OK. Not spectacular or unforgettable like I had hoped for. It's a fun place for lunch, but perhaps the Batali recommendation made my expections too high. Had very little to offer the vegetarian in the family.

I guess this really was a garage at one time and it's neat that you can sit in or out but still feel connected to all, especially in the summer.
We split some kabobs as we weren't too hungry. A bit high for the qty. and a bit dry. Ok though. Good service.

Had the names of 2 places in Northport we wanted to try while staying in Sutton's Bay. Assumed with a Northport address, both would be in the few block downtown area. The 1st one wasn't (Fischer Happy Hour Tavern, apparently an 'old up north' MUST), but this one was, so we ate here. It was VACATION so we started our trip by having a cocktail, gin & tonic (it was a HOT summery day). SHOCKED when we got our bill----$3.50!!! Awesome! Husband had the regular sized slow cooked pulled pork sandwhich, which almost everyone gets here, believe me--I watched!! I had the mini, which definitely suited me better. Both were delicious! the regular one is quite large. You get cole slaw with both. We shared an order of onion rings which we really didn't need but they were exceptionally good. The restaurant is quite small but also has an outdoor seating area which would be pleasant when it's not 90 (which it was). The bar has a very small seating area. Good for families or couples. Service was very polite and friendly. Northport is a lovely town. Definitely visit!

The pulled pork is awesome as well as the coleslaw. We loved it! I tried some of the chicken salad too and it was very good as well.
