Searching for a place to eat in Greenport, we happened upon Scrimshaw. i preferred the quiet location to the hubbub of the larger restaurants. Scrimshaw is located right on the harbor and offers outside seating. The menu looked intriguing to a foodie like me. I was not disappointed. The food was fantastic! However, as a previous reviewer said, the service was "chaotic." Once seated, we waited quite a long time, even though the place was not packed. I had to remind the server to bring my wine. We asked for more bread but never got any. The server did disappear for a while during the meal. Ironically, the owner seemed to be sitting in a corner of he room, making comments and giving orders, for most of the time we were there, but doing nothing more. It is puzzling to me how a restaurant serving this quality of food would choose to minimize the experience by failing to get its act together.
