“True Charmer, Great food, great waitress Ashley”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

My first visit to OB in over 16 years. What a find in the middle of town. Food is great, wine is great and do not miss out on the fish tacos...they are not chopped up like a normal fish taco. These are blackened and grilled strips of Tilapia. The portobello mushroom salad was sweet, warmed goat cheese and all the right types of greens you could want. Our server Ashley, was so cute and so efficient. You feel served, but not rushed. We then went into the bar to continue the party inside. The bartender, who looks like Jason Taylor could not have been nicer. I later found out he was the owners' son. Ran into some great people too. Don't miss this gem.

“Cute bar”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Had a few martinis and cocktails with my husband, on the way to dinner. Didn't try the food, but the bartender was great.

“Great for the money!”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

The Albatross is probably one of the most overlooked restaurants on the island... If you are looking for more pub type food than a fancy meal, this is your best bet. Their food is fresh, consistent and resonably priced. Great for lunch or a casual dinner. I suggest the scallop spinach salad!

“ok, good food, services average.”
Reviewed August 25, 2011

no bread fro our table until we asked, all other tables received bread. waitress spilled wine on table when serving---i don't need a puddle of red wine on my table when i'm paying 10 dollars a glass. bus-boy cleaned it up later. food good, but diner type service. bus-boy slamming dirty dishes into bus pan--EXTREMELY loud. unprofessional. for our 60 dollar dinner, we could do much better, but you are trapped on fire island, which is a problem unto itself.
