The Oar Seafood Grille has been a Patchogue favorite for (almost) the last 30 years. Waterfront on the Patchogue River and with outdoor dining, all one has to do is enter the restaurant and look up at the ceiling to know that they are about to encounter some wonderful seafood. Oars and paddles line the restaurant and make you just want to jump into a boat and start paddling.
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.
Blackbirds’ Grille may be off of the Main Street area of Sayville, but the two-minute drive to get there from the main district shouldn’t turn you off. There is plenty of parking, plenty of dining choices and a local vibe that is second to none.
One of the best Lobster Rolls that we have experienced on Long Island belongs to a worthy establishment in East Hampton; Bostwick’s Chowder House. It’s a gem on the South Fork and in these summer months, nothing is better than sitting outside in the sun and consuming one of the best around.
Just because the winter weather is arriving doesn’t mean that you have to leave that summertime feeling behind. Harbor Crab Co. in Patchogue is a waterfront restaurant / bar that strives to keep that season going all year long; and from what we’ve experienced, they’re succeeding.
Hidden amongst the 2-for-1 happy hours, freezer-burned fried clams, and pizza joints in Ocean Beach is a gem where delicious, creative food can be enjoyed alongside the lapping waves of the Great South Bay. Eating at The Hideaway will make you joyous that you found (and were admitted to) this “hideout” of epicurean delights.
