Our friends said, "trust us," as we parked nearly on the street, took our bottle of wine, and walked up to an old country house. And so we trusted their recommendation, and were we ever surprised! No wait at all. Sat overlooking the river and watched as an osprey holding a fish flew by. Shared the lobster cakes and salad with each other, and had the salmon oreganato, and grouper for dinner. Absolutely superb! (presentation, taste, portion.) Looked out at the river again, and aside from the ducks and swan that swam by, watched as a river otter surfaced and swam toward the bank. Quite a nice touch for the setting! Yes - the place is small, and did get a bit noisy some times. (Thought perhaps low background music could help?) However, appreciated the byob (without a corking fee). Appreciated the quirky, down-to-earth setting. And here we were beginning to think you could only find good food in Brooklyn and Manhattan nowadays. We asked how long they had been there - for 12 years, they said!!! - 8 years doing lunches, before they opened for dinner. How did we not know? We do now, and we will be back. For lunch too.

We ate there while in the area on business. It's a bit difficult to find, and parking is almost non-existent (though you can park across the street at least some of the time). The setting is a fairly small house; most of the seating is on the deck overlooking the river. It was cool when we were there, but the plastic surround and heaters kept it plenty warm. It's a BYOB place, which we enjoy, so plan ahead. The food is excellent, the presentations are great, and the staff very nice. We'll go back.

What a culinary experience, whether it be lunch or dinner, to savor. Never had a bad meal at this restaurant and it continues to please even the most sophisticated tastes. The staff are attentive and pleasant. Just don't blink when trying to find the location. It is hidden off the main road but when you find it, you will be very pleased. :)

Have enjoyed lunch there many times and it is always yummy. Went back again for our third dinner meal and 10 out of 10 people in our group loved everything about our experience. Food is excellent and substantial, wait staff (Sherry and Christopher) charming and on spot the entire evening. I almost didn't want to share this post with others because I just want to keep this gem to ourselves but that seemed ugly to me so here it is. Love it!

Hard to find although on Main Street. Went with a friend for weeknight dinner. Wasn't crowded this time of year, although typically need reservations in spring and summer. Great staff, excellent food, delicious dessert. They make freshly squeezed lemonade with other fruit flavors. The blackberry lemonade was awesome. Sat on back porch overlooking Peconic river.
