1 night in Aquebogne, L.I. - Dinner

I am staying 1 night on Long Island and need suggestions for dinner - $50 pp and under would be great. Local Seafood would be wonderful

    There's a lot of discussion of recent restaurant activity under North Fork threads on these boards, might be a good place to look. For good food at moderate prices, Riverhead has a growing dining scene, and Greenport should offer choices. Look for posts by Coll, she lives out there and gets around.

      For Aquebogue, at reasonable prices, go to the Modern Snack Bar...not so modern...looks like its straight out of the 50's (it was also the set for a Toyota commercial). Inexpensive, great drinks and wine, I like the duck and soft shell crabs...great duck breast salad too. Nothing gourmet...just good food and a pleasant atmosphere.

        I always loved that they had an early bird special so all the grannies could go have their LI Duck. It's really, really old fashioned though.

          In 1952 it was Modern!! The waitresses still wear the same style outfits and hats. I love that place!!

          Thanks for the shout out. I'm going to suggest Bayview Inn since seafood is mentioned, old fashioned decor-wise but not the food. When we eat there it comes out to around $50 each including a few drinks. It's in Jamesport which is as close to Aquebogue as you can get. Modern Diner is OK, been there done that, but you have to be in a certain mood.

          Also, Meetinghouse Creek Inn in Aquebogue, go south at the light: another oldie but goodie, and they have a Tiki Bar on their back deck on the water, so that could be fun.

              It's a really friendly comfortable place, and this time of year Tiki is just what the doctor ordered! It's hidden away down on the bay and not so trendy, that's what I like about it.

          As far as I know, there is nothing in Aqueboge. Nearby is Jamesport Country Kitchen.
