A Restaurant on the South Shore of Long Island

I'm looking for a nice restaurant on the South Shore with an water view within, say, a 20 minute drive of Robert Moses State Park. Any suggestions?

  1. i always love catfish max's in seaford which is not that far of a drive Farminigville. great food, great special drinks -- highly recommend the pomargranet (sp?) martini and is on the water. We go to this plave by boat all the time.

    For good seafood but no frills -- South Side in Lindenhurst which is close

    I live by Jones beach so I don't have that many recos for you. However, from Robert Moses at the end at Captree Park, you can take Ocean Parkway which is the road (and seriously it is a road more so than a Parkway -- don't speed at nigth -- COPS that love to give tickets for speeding!!) that connects Robert Moses Beach and Jones Beach -- with all the local beaches in between. It is an amazing drive -- 12 mins from suffolk to nassau -- you can go to Fisherman's catch in Point Lookout which is right off the Loop Parkway -- go left and you are there. On the water, great seafood, nice place and after you can go next door to the Buey Bar for a drink and watch the sun set.

    1. Fatfish in Bayshore isn't too far from the Robert Moses Pky on the water in Bayshore. Recently redone wine bar good food with a great view of the Great South Bay.

      1. the lake house in bay shore is excellent right on main street.the view is of a small lake that i never knew was there and the food and service is outstanding.

        1. We like a few places with a water view. Nicky's on the bay:

          at the Bayshore Marina. Kingston Clam Bar:

          in West Sayville and the Cull House:

          in Sayville.

          All of these places are within 20 minutes of Robert Moses State Park.
