Looking for a Long Island restaurant!

My somewhat elderly parents are not adventurous eaters, like solid Italian, Mediterranean, diners, steak houses etc. I am visiting with a couple of teenagers and looking for recommendations for something other than their regular rotation. They suggested House of Spain in Merrick, but the reviews were dicey. Mid-Nassau county, but would love to hear of some of your local favorites. Thanks!!!

      We had a great meal at Louie's in Port Washington last weekend.
      Great steamers, Juicy plump mussels and broiled seafood combo. Prices are better than you would expect for a waterfront restaurant.
      MP Taverna in Roslyn is also a solid choice for greek food.

        East Bay Diner on Merrick Road in Seaford/Wantagh fits what you are looking for.

        There is the Lighthouse on Sunrise Hwy in Wantagh as well.
