Great eats after a day at Robert Moses???

  • v

Headed out on a day trip to the beach, looking for a dinner spot south shore or along the northern state headed back to NYC. Seafood, Italian, Steaks are all good, but has to have great cocktails and appetizers, and be casual enough for after-beach wear!

  1. If you head back to Montauk Hwy (East) off the RM Causeway to Bay Shore..... make a right on Maple Ave and a left into the Fire Island ferry terminal you will find a great place called Nicky's Clam Bar. It the best fried seafood on the south shore.

    Better yet,,.,,,,,skip Robert Moses and spend the day on Fire Island much nicer...and then head to Nicky's.

      Yup- I agree and you can go as you are- no atmosphere- but simple fresh food. The place looks like a dump, but don't be fooled and it is very small- so be prepared for a wait.

    2. bump . .. going to the beach this weekend

      1. Try dinner on the Nautical Mile in Freeport. There's one seafood restaurant after another. My favorite is Bracco's.

        1. Bellissimo Ristorante 786 Grand Blvd, Just east of Commack Rd, Deer Park 631-274-3378

          Close to beach. Friendly, informal, romantic, outstanding small whole-pie pizzas, good pastas and entries. Horrible wine and music. Nice service. Not cheap, but fair value.

          1. We go to Robert Moses every weekend. Our favorite - the Babylon Clam House on the water, by the town beach in Babylon. Inexpensive, outdoor dining and very casual.

            Robert Moses Causeway North to Montauk Highway West, just past 231, make a left at the first light (you will be hugging the water). Just follow the road/water until it intersects with Fire Island Avenue, make a left and bear left at the is just a bit of the way down on the right.

            See you by the lighthouse.
