“What happened to the Lobster Roll”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

This restaurant use to be one of the reasons to visit the wineries on the north fork of Long Island. The food was terrible and very expensive. I ordered the puffers for appetizer which were full of bones. There were 5 pieces for 18.00 and for dinner Crusted Salmon which was dry and over cooked. I will never return to this once great place.

“Great Lunch”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

What a fantastic lunch we had. Popular place for Lobster rolls. The staff were efficient and friendly and made the visit pleasant. Make sure you check out the Ginger Bread University on the sme site.

“Quality of the lobster salad has slipped ... been there many times”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

We visited Northside the other evening and had our usual lobster roll ... and were disappointed with the service and the quality and quantity of the food. Our drink order...specialty martinis from their menu (nothing difficult or custom made) were not delivered until AFTER our food was on the table!! And, speaking of the food ... we have been visiting Northside since it opened after years and years of stopping at the original "Lunch" on the strip on the way to Montauk ... and were surprised to find that the lobster roll ... which is far from inexpensive ... was smaller, had much more celery and fewer chunks of claw meat and.... perish the thought....NO FRENCH FRIES!! They now serve potato chips of all things....unless you want to pay extra for the fries...which we did and were served a portion of fries that was much smalller than the normal accompanying side that were are used to. We probably will not be going back again too soon and will definitely STOP recommending this place to friends who are headed to the North Fork.

“Went for the lobster roll and it was fantastic.”
Reviewed July 14, 2012 via mobile

Also had the small north side salad. Local greens , lots of walnuts (actually quite large ) the lobster roll was just what we wanted.... Best I have had on the island served the correct way, on a 'hot dog" style bun.
