Just south of Atlantic Avenue and on the way to the Nautical Mile lies Bagel Dock and Cafe, a local bagel shop that through thick and thin has survived to stay open and provide those heading to the open waters (and to work) with freshly baked bagels, muffins, salads and more.
When Freeport, along with the rest of the island, was ravaged by Hurricane Sandy, the damage caused to Hudson & McCoy was enough to set into motion a chain of events that led to Hudson & McCoy to be evicted and a new tenant to come to the table. Enter Hudson’s on the Mile.
New for 2012 is The Bamboo Bar and Grill on the Nautical Mile in Freeport. We stopped by this past weekend before their busy lunch and afternoon rush to relax on their outdoor sand-covered dining area overlooking the calm waters and the marina.
The Patio, which burst onto the scene last year and catered to those Long Islanders who love to eat and drink on the water, is reopening for the season this Thursday, April 12th. Located in the Freeport Inn and Marine, the restaurant and bar features an outdoor lounge area, a bar that opens its doors to the outside and a great food menu that will be sure to be even more popular this year as more people learn about it.
Those nights walking down Woodcleft Avenue on Freeport’s Nautical Mile can get you in the mood for something very sweet (especially if you’ve been eating some of that salty seafood all night). We’ve got you covered with Pip’s Ice Cream, located a stone’s throw away from the waterfront views.
Freeport has a great stretch of waterfront restaurants on their Nautical Mile and on a visit to this area, we were given a choice of about 12 or so restaurants to dine in. It was unfortunate that we chose Blue 42; as we walked away discouraged, unsatisfied and with a lot less money than we had walked in with.
