“We'll be back!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

We've become regulars at this place not only because of their outdoor seating but also because of their happy hour specials. Cant beat their prices anywhere! Definitely worth any wait when its busy.

“Has potential but...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

Village way is another restaurant in town that has great potential but always seems to come up short. We live local and have been there a few times, usually mid week and/or off season. Food and service is usually in the good range. Not great, but good enough to stay in the rotation...until the last visit. It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon in the village. It was crowded but we got a spot outside. It was a situation where they should have been prepared and could have pulled off a win/win. Instead they fell flat on their face from the get go. While waiting for the waiter, we were surrounded by tables complaining about everything. Our waiter gave it his best, but the long wait, cold apps and barely acceptable meal added up to a 2 star experience at best. Can't say we won't be back, but it won't be during prime time.

“Immediate Turnoff!!!!!!!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

While visiting Port Jeff we were looking for a place to eat and noticed the outdoor dining at The Village Way. It looked nice to us so we entered the restaurant. You enter into the dark, dreary bar area. The hostess was not very friendly and she was going to seat us in a corner next to the empty bar in an empty room. When we asked to sit on the outside under an umbrella table she said it was raining and the umbrellas won't help. We had just arrived and there were others outside and there was barely a sprinkle of rain. When we agreed to sit in the dingy bar area, we asked for a different table than the one she chose for us. She was definitely annoyed and wasn't afraid to show it. The table we chose wouldn't sit flat on the floor and if we ordered any drinks it would have been a challenge to keep them from spilling. By the time the poor waitress arrived we had had enough and decided to search on for a better dining experience. Sorry I can't review the food...we never got there. We did find a restaurant with a view of the harbor which was more to what we hoped for on our day trip.

“Needs exterminator”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

On 7/22/2013 I visited this resaturant with a group of 5 adults and three kids. They were very accommodating in sitting us in a special area known as" the boat area". Service was very slow even to get our beverages.While waiting, I saw a roach climb out of the wall and along the boothe area we were sitting. Trying not to cause a scence, somebody in our party killed the bug. Half of us wanted to leave and half wanted to stay. We told hostess( who we believe may be owner) of situation and she apologized and offered a 10% discount and said she was sure that was an isolated situation. I was unable to eat however others said food was just ok. Soon we saw another roach, nobody wanted to finish their food. Not all food was being payed on one check and we found that the promised 10% discount was only applied to one of the checks. Actually, we feel we should have been forgiven our tab given this situation. Looking back, we realized this restaurant was pretty empty compared to some others. Maybe bug issue was why.

“Great Burgers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

They make the best burgers around for the price. When you are done with your meal, you can stroll around Port Jefferson Village and enjoy the rest of the area.
