The Lake House

Reviewed By Drknite12 - West Babylon, New York

I made reservations for a nice dinner out here, 2 weeks in advance, on high recommendation from a few people. I was expecting top level service and dining, but that simply was not the case. Appetizer was just ok. The entrees were very good. My wife enjoyed her scallops, and I my steak. It wasn't bad by any means but didn't impress me either. Dessert was pretty good. The biggest problem I had was our server. She couldn't have done any less. A smile would have been nice. Make me feel like I'm not just an annoyance just for showing up. Not that we made any special requests or even asked her a question, but nonetheless, not a good feeling from her. Maybe I expected too much, but I was told the experience here was exceptional. It wasn't. I can't say I'd care if I ever went back. The valet in the parking lot was the friendliest person we encountered.

Since grown kids had other plans w inlaws on Thanksgiving, my hubby and I decided to have a stress free Thanksgiving dinner @ our fave go to restaurant The Irish Coffee Pub. Must say it was a delicious Traditional Thanksgiving dinner. The Turkey was good, and it came with the standard Thanksgiving sides. Stuffing, gravy, candied yams (which were not too sweet ..no gooey marshmallows here, thank goodness!) A flavorful cranberry relish and homestyle mashed potatoes, with fresh veggies. Large portions ..really enough for me to take home half of my meal, which I did. Everything tastes like homemade. My husband (not fond of turkey) had their delicious filet mignon wrapped in bacon. Everything cooked to perfection, as usual. We never have any complaints . All in all it is always an enjoyable and delicious dining experience at the pub...that is why it has been our favorite go to restaurant for special occassions. Have also dined there on Christmas Eve several times (very nice ) as well as birthdays or just to treat ourselves to a great dinner. It is a real treat for me when I don't have to cook and still have a great meal. In my opinion, much better than Tellers restaurant which I find to be highly overrated & too expensive. We ate there one previous Thanksgiving .Without going into details I will just say that it was an unpleasant dining experience..we will never dine there again! Overall I highly recommend The IRISH COFFEE PUB for a SUPERB dining experience always serving DELICIOUS food and always giving their customers friendly courteous service. Without hesitation, for our family, this restaurant has always been.... A 5 star rating (Love it there!)

My husband and I live in the Bay Shore area and one night we stopped by Tula for a drink --then we decided to get a snack! Good thing we did- the P.E.I. (Prince Edward Island) Mussels were to die for! Tasty and plentiful-yummy. .I only wish I had taken a picture to show you

Tellers

Tellers is not just a Chophouse. It’s an institution. Born out of an old bank, Tellers delights visually with the original Mosler Vault serving as our wine vault at the heart of Tellers and a dining room set inside sky-high ceilings and 30 foot vertical windows. Our Chef constructs progressive takes on the classics, but let’s the traditional Chophouse fare take center stage, with USDA PRIME, 21-day dry aged beef as our cornerstone. The Gold Bar pays homage to classic bars of years past. Enjoy lunch in Prime’s dining room, our fireplace lounge or at our bar. Host your event or celebrate your special occasion in the timelessness that is Tellers: An American Chophouse.

RatingA-OK. All changes saved

I have been a huge fan of Tellers since the day it opened. I moved and have not been there in a year, but went for a holiday business dinner last night. It was not as good as it has been in the past.

Table for 12, we had one extra and they needed 30 min to reconfigure the entire table to accommodate one extra person. We were a party of 12 (or 13) with a reservation made long in advance and they sat us in the bar area.

No bread served and the appetizers that we pre-ordered were kind of light (not enough). We told them that we were having 15 people, so I am not sure why they were light.

It took over an hour for the entrees to be brought out after the appetizers and some of the steaks were overcooked.

I loved Tellers in the past and was sad to see how bad it was last night.

Excellent tapas! We were I the area and googled restaurants near me. Tullulah's rose right to the top. And the mere mention of good tapas, we were in. Great atmosphere, cool menu. Shared 4 tapas between us, but forgot to save room for dessert, which was a shame because that looked delicious too! We will be back!!!

O-Co-Nee East Diner Restaurant

Reviewed By CLIFF-PATRICIA - LONG ISLAND, NY

Menu is varied and everything is delicious. Worth a detour is you are in the area. (Just south of Sunrise Highway on Main St. which is also Rte 27A.) Breakfast is the best meal here. Decorated to the hilt all year round for every holiday. If you are patriotic, go between Memorial Day and 4th of July when every red, white and blue decoration is displayed beautifully. Christmas is also over the top as is Valentine's Day. Staff is friendly and efficient. Handicapped accessible. Prices are reasonable. Very family friendly place.

Captain Bill's

Reviewed By thedirtydozen - LI, New York

Nice place to go for lunch or dinner. Situated on the water, with a view of all the boats. Bay Shore is a great town with lots of good restaurants but Capt. Bill's has been around forever! We had baked clams, lobster rolls. Tables covered in linen tablecloths and service was friendly and quick. Have been here for dinner also and just as good. Also caters school reunions, parties, etc.

Bubba's Burrito Bar

Reviewed By flr9003 - NY

This is by far one of the best burrito bars around. This is my fourth or fifth time here and each time we all look forward to going here. Today I tried the tacos and they were excellent. The burritos are big enough to feed two. My only complaint is that the lines can be long, the seating is limited and sometimes parking is difficult. But of course the food is worth the wait.

Peter Pan Diner

Reviewed By ldemetres - Bay Shore, New York

The food is alright. Nothing special. Service is alright too. We were there one night, and one of the owners was yelling, and cursing at a customer, who apparently had done some work for him, and the customer expected his meal for free. Unprofessional. I was surprised after traveling, that the diner is closed at 12 midnight.
