    My husband and I went to Greenport this past August and everyone told us we should go to the Frisky Oyster. We didn't make it there, but as we were looking at the menu while the restaurant was closed a local who was walking by, said it was very good and seemed quite enthusiastic.

    We had breakfast at the Coronet luncheonette, and that was great. Huge blueberry pancakes which were light and fluffy. It was an old fashioned diner smack in the middle of town.

    I also saw a spot called the Chowder Pot, that looked like fun. I wish I had more time there!

      Haven't been, but passed it the other day and it's definietly not overhyped or overpriced.... and other seem to like...and it's the cutest little place in the midst of tons of farmland.

      See recent report from a fellow hound..............

      I like Farmer Bar's in Cutchogue (North Fork of LI) on Depot Lane. They are half way between the Middle Rd (Rt 25) and the North Road (aka Sound Avenue) right near the RR tracks on the west side of Depot Lane.

      Excellent ribs, either wet or dry, good beans and slaw. The jalopeno corn bread is fantastic and good brew on draft.

          Sure - I'd be happy for other recs - we're staying out on Conscience Point for the weekend. To give you an idea of where we're coming from, here are some observations from prior 5-6 weekends over the past year: we usually go to Pierre's for lunch one day and always enjoy it, also like American Hotel for lunch as long as we remember not to have *too* high expectations. Thought that the Thai that was where Wild Thyme now is was pretty good but v. expensive, ditto the sushi place in Sag Harbor - ie, I could have eaten at Yasuda/Gari for what I spent there. We usually go to the seafood market in Wainscott for lobster rolls to go for lunch. Usually end up doing a lot of cooking - but would welcome some ideas for great food/places we should try that are not over priced or overhyped. Don't mind spending the money, as long as we're getting the value/quality etc.

          Also - thinking of taking the ferries over to Greenport (Greenpoint?) tomorrow - any restaurant suggestions on the North Fork?

          TIA - and have a nice weekend.

            To start, please take a look at my review of the Bayview Inn. I would recommend this place for a good meal and a great value. Nothing fancy, but very quaint and homey.

            Also, Jedediah Hawkins Inn....just lovely. A really special spot in Jamesport.

            My parents recently went to North Fork Table & Inn and said it was fabulous.

            My other rec, if you don't mind traveling a bit would be F.O.O.D. in Hampton Bays. I think you can seach the tristate site for a writeup i did about a year ago.I think the title of the post was F.O.O.D is a FIND. A hidden gem that serves a great meal with a brazilian flair.

            Check these out and let me know if you need more.

                When you said not overpriced and overhyped, I thought of The Old Stove Pub in Sagaponack...have you ever been there? You'll forget you're in the Hamptons, greatest steaks around and very good homemade Greek. I've also heard great things about the new Trata restaurant in Watermill, also Greek, but fish oriented. And last time we went to Saracen we fell in love with the food and atmosphere. Gotta get back there soon.

                    I live down the road from the Old Stove Pub and it has been closed for some time. The restaurant and the property are for sale.
