North Fork this Friday with kids

We need a restaurant on the north fork for this friday night with our 2 kids... 4 and 6 (well behaved). We normally go to the north fork without kids and enjoy places like North Fork Table, luce & hawkins, Noahs so food matters! We were thinking about the newish pizza place, Grana, or maybe Modern Snack Bar?? isn't there a downstairs pub type place at luce & hawkins?? would that be appropriate? last time we were there (upstairs) I loved the food...fried chicken and mac & cheese..hard to go wrong with that!!

  1. I don't think Modern Snack Bar opens for weeks yet. Skippers in Greenport would work with the kids. I liked O'Mally's burgers.

    1. Modern Snack Bar is closed for the Winter otherwise it is a great place. Grana is open, kid friendly and very good.
      Not being sure where you are going and what you like here are some suggestions:
      Farm Country Kitchen in Riverhead has excellent gourmet in a casual setting
      Jamesport Country Kitchen same as above and run by the Jamesport Manor people
      O'Malley's in Southold great burgers, fish in a bar restaurant setting
      Red Rooster in Cutchogue excellent comfort food
      Cooperage Inn in Baiting Hollow
      Dark Horse in Riverhead is a new place and fabulous but you should call them about the kids
      Hellenic Greek in Greenport is good and kid friendly
      Rendesvous Riverhead for a great marinated steak or one of Cliff's other places, Elbow Room, Elbow Too and Elbow East were all owned at one point by the same family. They all still serve an exceptional steak at a reasonable price. Casual too!
      For breakfast we like the Main St Grill in Southold.

          yes.. last time we were out there we had breakfast at love lane both mornings!

        2. I suggest the Bayview Inn in Jamesport. Great food and service.

            The Bayview Inn has fabulous food but may be a bit "stuffy' for the young kids.

          2. If you loved Love Lane Kitchen for breakfast, you'll love it for dinner too! As casual, kid-friendly restaurants on the North Fork go, you can't beat LLK. Is the Jamesport Country Kitchen open at this time of year? That could also be a possibility. We also enjoyed the pizzeria in Jamesport. A very nice thin-crust pizza in a casual atmosphere.

              Jamesport Country Kitchen is open year round. It's run by the same family that owns the Jamesport Manor which is fabulous but probably not as kid friendly.
