The Fifth Season

Local farms and waters are the inspiration for this New American restaurant that focuses on preparing menus using ingredients that change with each season. American microbrews and wines are carefully selected to pair with each dish our chefs create. Enjoy our House-Infused Artisanal Cocktails made with seasonal purees and fresh squeezed juices while overlooking the Long Island Sound on either the outdoor patio, upstairs seating or cozy lounge. Established in 2004 in Greenport, this Zagat top-rated restaurant for both food and service moved in Spring 2008 to Port Jefferson harbor.

Se-port Delicatessen

Reviewed By Kira D - Stony Brook, New York

Se Port Deli is a 5 star food establishment. There is something for everyone! All of the food is the freshest and they use the best ingredients. From sandwiches, wraps, burgers, salads, chicken fingers, side salads and desserts there is nothing that isn’t delicious. They also have the best fountain ice tea around!!! The biggest problem is deciding what to get each time!!! Se Port Deli is by far the best deli on Long Island!!!

Domo sushi

Reviewed By naugaman - Setauket, New York

Not being a sushi lover I was pleasantly surprised to find the restaurant has a number of very nice none sushi selections. My Bento Box was tasty and very satisfying. My wife's food was equally as good, and past visits for sushi were quite good. The restaurant is a bit austere but very clean and well run Service was very good and the cost was quite reasonable. Will go again!

Reviewed By Justmemat - Selden, New York

Service mediocre, food not special. What hair for my girl's birthday in the morning and order the eggs benedict which were very very runny. Tasted okay except English muffin underneath was not toasted. I don't know how you screw up an English muffin and forget to toast it but they did. Potatoes that came with the eggs benedict for Bland at best. You could tell they are using a high-quality potato but all you can taste is paprika and blandness. Cousin had french toast which she said was very good and fiance had pancakes which also were very good she said. No one came over during breakfast to ask us how everything was except for in the very beginning when only two out of three of us had gotten our food. They never came back to ask us if we needed a napkin or anything else which I definitely did because eggs Benedict is messy. They only came back at the end to ask if we wanted to check or anything else. Very mediocre experience at best will probably not be back

Setauket Pita House

Setauket Pita House has been serving Long Island, NY over 25 years with number one rated Turkish and Mediterranean food.Our authentic Turkish and Mediterranean dishes made with only fresh ingredients

Reviewed By Ian T

FIrST: it has moved to Medford NY, w-a-y out in Long Island. Absolute must for people within a reasonable travel time.
Long list of appetizers, each better than the other. I have had some of these e.g. Baba Ghanoush, a mashed eggplant concoction, but never so delicious. It seemed that every item was prepared with great care. Same goes for the entrees, which cover the gamut of food categories. We were a group of ten, all raving about the food.
Warning: very slow service, although it was exceedingly friendly and helpful. Don’t come if you are in a rush!

My friends and I enjoyed sharing a yummy crepe with chocolate chip cookie dough and cannoli filling and hot fudge on top. The quiet atmosphere allowed for good conversation to go with our coffee and dessert. This is a warm spot with lots of interesting dessert choices and interesting sayings posted on the walls to ease the guilt of such decadent food!

We stopped in for a late lunch and had a nice meal. We tried the Turkey sandwich, chicken Caesar (which has a lot of chicken) and the lobster bisque which were all above average. We also had fries and they were good! Nice local place to stop in for a casual lunch.

The Curry Club

Reviewed By Prashantgami - Selden, New York

I usually go to the Curry Club and use my Groupon. This time I had Chicken curry and Paneer Peshawari. Both dishes were cooked to perfection. Instead of naan, this time we had tandoori roti which was amazing. Food is always fresh and delicious. Definitely I would go again and again. The only reason I gave 4 stars is because of the dessert which for me didn't cut the fine line.
