Description: The Cooperage Inn takes great pride in serving the freshest fish, meats and local produce available. Sauces are expertly prepared on premise by our chefs. The name "Cooperage Inn" comes from the craft of coopering, which goes back a few centuries, when it was the major method of packaging. We are located in the Long Island Wine region. Wine makers have always relied on the skills of the Village Cooper to store and age their wines.

This is a place that we never stopped at in all the times we drove out east on the Island, and I am sorry we missed it. The staff were very efficient and the food was delicious! Can't wait to go back.
We went to the tasting and tour of LI Spirits next door and then had lunch here. Too bad they don't offer any of the vodka or spirits from next door!

Thank scronk73

Cooperage is a place you can depend on. Not totally special but consistant and always good with service and food.

This was just an average restaurant in the country. The food and service were good but it was not an outstanding experience.

Attended a family brunch here a year ago, decided to re-visit on a spring Saturday afternoon. A quick 2pm lunch, or so we thought...our server Barbara couldn't have been less pleasant. After we ordered from the ridiculously-overpriced lunch menu, we sat for 30 minutes with no food of any kind. Just our drinks, silverware, and an empty table. Finally, we snagged a busboy to fetch our waitress. She informed us that the kitchen is always this slow, that the food 'takes time'. Okay, so after another ten minutes or so, someone else brings us our plates. Was he a Manager? Head Chef? Another busboy? He never identified himself, and seemed annoyed that we inquired as to the whereabouts of our food. When I asked why we didn't get a drink refill, or some bread, or at least an explanation as to why it was taking so long, he simply stated that this the average wait time. He left us to dine (below average food, in our opinion) and since we couldnt wait to get the heck out of there, tried to flag down our waitress. Another gentleman came to our table and said he would get our check, that our waitress was busy with other tables. It should be pointed out that the place was less than half-full, not crowded by any means. When I asked if our waitress had 'abandoned us', he left to get our check and sent her to our table with it. She apologized for the slow service in an attempt to salvage her tip, no doubt. I left the customary 10% for shoddy service (I usually leave 20%), which I heard her comment about to a fellow waiter as we were leaving the premises. Needless to say, it scores a 'terrible' for food, for pricing, and for service. I will never go back, and recommend that others steer clear. If they are the 'only show in town', then drive to another town.

Hadn't been to this restaurant in a long time, but had positive memories of dining there. We went for Sunday brunch this time and noted a large seating capacity but a surprisingly small food presentation area. Speaking of presentation, selections seemed few and were cramped together - especially the traditional breakfast items as well as the more lunch-oriented fare . Of the L-shaped table arrangement, one side was loaded with breads, cakes, muffin, cookies - a feast for carb-lovers, I suppose. There was an omelet station, but surprisingly we were told it was "omelets only" - no eggs made to order. I've never encountered an omelet station where the cook refused to whip up a sunnyside egg or two. As for the food overall, the pasta dish was so gummy with starch as to be inedible and the appeal of the "fresh" fruit bowl was erased by tasteless melon that was surely out of a frozen food bag. Apart from the omelet, waffle and apple pie which were fairly good, there was nothing I tasted to which i would give a star. With the North Fork having gotten excited about itself in recent years, I suppose $12. for a martini isn't unheard of out there. On the subject of prices, though, management should keep its web page in sync with what it charges: online, brunch is listed at $24.95 but the bill reflected a charge of $26.95 pp before taxes. It's not a big deal, but it should be corrected. While I am reluctant to leave a negative review of a small, struggling restaurant even if I find it sub-par, an establishment that does a brisk year-round business like the Cooperage should be able to take it on the chin when customers are dissatisfied.
