As a visitor to Shelter Island, I have seen this place for the past 10 yrs and decided to finally try it. We walked in at 445pm and only 1 couple were in the establshment. We were greeted and sat immediatly. So far, so good. After a few minutes, the server (ashley) asked us what to drink and we ordered a water and a coke. After being served the drinks, the server and other servers were standing approx 3 feet from us discussing their day etc. I looked over at them a few times trying to hint that we were ready and nothing. I finally said "well I know what I want" only then did she come over. After ordering and being served the salad, the server looked at my empty water glass and walked away and went on to the conversation with the other servers. The water pitcher was about 2 feet from me and I was tempted to grab it myself. She then walked by again and did not refill it even after I made a slurp sound! We also had 2 cups of chowder which was not all great, I believe a can of campbells would have been better. After waiting approx 20 min and numerous walk bys, we were served our meal which consisted of the Fettuccine w/shrimp and the fish and chips. My wife politley had to ask for more drinks and only did were they refilled. My Fettuccine was good but the shrimp were tiny. The Blue cheese for my salad was great and highly recommened. The fish and chips were tiny and looked like something from King Kullen, for $12.95 I would have expected more than 2 small pieces and fries. Also, the price jumped from $12.95 to $18.95 after 5pm which is not worth the price for the small amount you get. When we received our bill, I was shocked that the coke was charged x2, I guess this is a NY thing because where we are from it is free refills but no biggie. IF I decide to go back, it will not be at night since apparently the service will be worse if only 2 couples and 5 servers are available before 5 and they can't seem to be customer friendly, instead worry about their own conversations.
For both meals, 2 drinks and 2 cups of chowder, total cost was around $48.00 which is ok I assume compared to other places. Also, if your server is named ASHLEY, ask for a different one.
