Stony Brook Area Late Night

I'll be coming into Stony Brook at around 11:00 p.m. and would like to eat and drink. Can anyone recommend a place open til midnight that serves decent food? Pub food is perfectly fine - I just want a place that serves beer and something better than Friendly's or Chilis or the neighborhood bar where food is a total afterthought.

  1. East of SmithHaven Mall, on Rt 347 is John Harvards. It is a brewery-pub, with a large selection of microbrews. The food is OK, but the atmosphere is far better than F or C. The beer is excellent.

    1. Will you be arriving by car? Tara's in Port Jefferson, four or five miles from SB, is a bar with awesome food open very late- until 3 or so.

          Here's a link and map. Tara's used to have good-priced lobsters, IIC.

            Was gonna suggest Tara's also. Total pub food but cheap!

      2. Nice recommendations. Was thinking about John Harvard's, but love the idea of Tara's. I'll look into it. Thanks!
