In somewhat-surprising news, Mitchell’s, one of Oceanside’s most notable diners, will be closing their doors to the public on Sunday, July 12, 2015. While we visited their diner multiple times over the years (some for Restaurant Hunter, on FiOS1 and then on our own with friends and family), we were always excited at finishing up dinner with one of their legendary ice cream treats.
Krisch’s Restaurant and Ice Cream Parlor in Massapequa is not only a wildly popular restaurant on Long Island, but it is one that is steeped in history; one of the last remaining old-school ice cream shops around.
Looking for that old 1950’s style diner setting to have your weekend breakfast served piping hot? If so, then you owe it to yourself to visit Mineola Diner in Mineola. Just like stepping back in time, the small restaurant is a nod to the past with tastes that are certainly in the present.
Port Jefferson Station may not have the waterfront dining options that Port Jefferson has, but that doesn’t mean that we should leave them out in the cold and not visit. We’ve scoured the area and came up with a few great dining options for our readers to visit and experience for a wonderful dining day in Suffolk County.
Northport is a wonderful village on the north shore of Suffolk County. The waterfront Main Street is a great spot to wander around both in the warmer weather and also when it’s a bit cooler and not as crowded.
Mitchell’s Restaurant in Oceanside has a name that is steeped in history. Since 1938, the Mitchell’s brand has been alive on Long Island. There may be two restaurants of the same name (there is another location in Valley Stream that was sold a few years back, but still retains the name), but when you experience Mitchell’s for yourself, you may find that there’s nothing like it anywhere else.
