Pricey, but the food was delicious, the waiting staff helpful and the location (away from the main strip and at the end of a small jetty looking out over the ocean) pretty unbeatable.

This was the only restaurant we didn't look up the reviews for before we went out there and I'm so glad we took a chance on it. The other waterfront dining options in Greenport had a bit too much of a frat boy vibe going on. This seemed like a little tucked away restaurant for adults. The outdoor deck was gorgeous, though inside looked lovely too. The service was outstanding. Our meal was really good and not just the same old run of the mil seafood options. We had a curried calamari appetizer that was fantastic!

Yes, it was pricey, but isn't everything out there? At least you are getting an amazing view and really good food for that price! The sunset alone would have made it worth it!

We had 7:00pm Reservations and didn't finish our dinner until 10:00. There was one waitress serving 8 tables and she was very sweet; but she's only one person!
One large party got up and walked out because they waited too long between appetizer and entree. No excuse for not having enough staff on the busy vacation period the weekend before Labor Day...
That being said, the food was great and the ambiance is even better on the dock in Greenport.

I cannot say enough about how amazing was the ambiance, the service (especially, the service), and the quality of the food. We were recommended Scrimshaw's by a friend and to that friend we are ever so grateful.

We decided to eat on the dock - it's one of the best views you could ask for in this town. The service and the food, however, reign supreme. (Thank you, Gustavo). While this seems like a minute detail or something that is expected, it is still so refreshing when the server knows what he or she is talking about, when it comes to the drinks, and everything that is on the menu. Gustavo had it down. We ordered a full course meal: from oysters, appetizers, our entrees to dessert. Across the board, they had it covered. They had the timing down, presentation, and all the courses tasted amazing. The only thing I was taken aback by was the consistency of the seafood chowder. It was expecting a thicker soup. It didn't matter, though, because it tasted amazing. Flavors were layered and savory. I ordered the key lime pie for dessert - it was devoured. Enough said.

We had a great stay in Greenport, and if we go back - I'm hoping we go back - we will most definitely be dining at Scrimshaw's again.

Had dinner at Scrimshaw Friday, July 3rd with my boyfriend and another couple. We all loved our meals and our server ( I wish I knew his name) was very attentive and was able to accommodate my dairy-free diet and was truly respectful about getting it right with the chef. And it was just great!! It was a very humid evening and we ate at the outside seating area. The gentle breeze and the lovely view made our experience even more special. Looking forward to going back.
