Late-Ish (after 8 PM) Dinner in North Fork
- The Dive Sep 9, 2006 12:40 AM
We are going to an early evening event in Greenport next Friday and need a place for dinner afterwards. We are staying in Orient Point, so I would prefer something in that direction (rather than the other) if possible.
I'm two for two with good dinners at Skippers on 25 in Greenport. Coming from Orient, it's on the right (north) side of 25 immediately after Island's End Golf Course. Casual dining room and a separate bar room. Don't know their hours, but probably OK on the time.
If you want a nice place for dinner, Frisky Oyster in Greenport or Le Cuvee at the Greenporter are both great. If you want a burger in a bar type atmosphere, Skippers is fine.
I'm guessing you've never actually eaten at Skippers, as they have an extensive menu and everything on it is great. And you won't pay three times what it's worth as at the places you mention. I always get the broiled Fisherman's platter, but my husband gets something different everytime, their daily special board is as big as many full menus elsewhere, and everything is cooked to perfection. Not to mention the friendliest staff around. I highly recommend it myself.
The Frisky Oyster was recommended to us, along with the following -- any thoughts?
The Loft, 48 Front Street, Greenport (631) 477-3080
Chowder Pot Pub, 104 Third Street, Greenport (631) 477-1345
Whiskey Wind Tavern, 30-32 Front Street, Greenport (631) 477-8764
Stirling Harbor Trattoria, 1410 Manhanset Avenue, Greenport (631) 477-3582
re: The Dive
Chowder Pot..a pub-type place; I like the fried oyster BLT sandwich..friendly
Whiskey Wind..a bar more than restaurant
Stirling Harbor Tratt..do not know but I like Antares in the general area between Greenport and Orient.
Me..I am planning to check out Skipper's very soon.
The Frsky Oyster is great, all of the others with the exception of Sterling Harbor I would avoid....never been there myself.
We went to the Frisky Oyster and had a great meal of tuna tartar, calamari, seared scallops and swordfish. Ended the night with an upside down blueberry cake. Everything was wonderful -- the scallops were the standout -- and we were impressed by the interesting wine list and well-made cocktails. Would definitely go back. Thanks for the tip.
