Bigelow's New England Fried

Reviewed By JandLfromNY - NY

Bigelow's has been here forever, and is virtually unchanged !
The fried soft-bellied clams are KILLER, the best anywhere. The onion rings and fries are freshly made and perfect. Chowder is wonderful. Service is fast and super attentive with servers asking often if everything is to customer liking.
Not super cheap, but great seafood isn't. Good value can be had by ordering half portions or appetizers which are HUGE.

Ambience is lunch counter, but the seafood is Haut Cuisine.

Five Pennies Creamery

Reviewed By joseph b - Brooklyn, New York

We stumbled upon this place visiting friends and were blow away by how quaint the atmosphere was and how incredibly accommodating the owner and his staff were. Our child has food allergies and they stopped to give us their undivided attention to make sure she could order the flavor she wanted. The owner came out to get us untouched containers from the back. He went above and beyond and gained very loyal customers. Plus the ice cream was amazing and the place is adorable.

Front Street Bake Shop

Reviewed By lejaceman - Garden City, New York

Rockville Centre has become a mecca for all sorts of good eats from the casual to some fancy smancy restaurants. Always a challenge to look for parking but the town loves for you to pay them meters/pay machines with your coordinated #. This great tasting bakery is the perfect place to pick up some sweets for your sweetie or yourself of course. Don't forget to get some of their freshly made java. You'll be so loved.

River Mill Tavern & Tables

Reviewed By lejaceman - Garden City, New York

River Mill Tavern & Tables is a perfect place to get some great tasting food whether you come for lunch, dinner or brunch. The menu is exciting with foods you can easily recognize and understand. The chef here takes favorite comfort food and ofen recreates it with a refreshing update. Plenty of yummy appetizers to help ease down the cocktails and their popular beers on tap. I like their huge pretzels with the dip. Chicken wings can be ordered with your choice sauce other than just the traditional. Try their Bitburger beer on tap, quite refreshingly good. Another popular option is to try the local beers on tap.
A real treat is to come to their weekend brunch. Now here's the treat. Their cornbread is given to you gratis. But it's so so good, you'll even order another one for just $3. It's that yummy. Try to resist that urge but trust me, you can't. Heck, order it to go so you don't look like a child gouching down a yummy donut. No one will see how you eat it at home, haha! Highlights Brick Chicken & Waffles and their Egg in the Bowl! Their Chorizo Scramble or their Steak & Eggs are also popular choices. For $10 as you dine, unlimited mimosas, screwdrivers, bellini, bloody mary's, etc. Not a bad deal considering the qualitt of food being served their. Only one pet peeve of mine is that why is there only one egg served with the Egg in the bowl and as well with the Chicken waffle dish? For $16, please add an extra egg alright? Just a suggestion. I'll order the Steak & Eggs and get my extra egg for $22. Happy Eating and I'll see you around the table from time to time and maybe I'll get an extra egg next time!

Whistle Stop Bake Shop

Reviewed By Caryn D - Oceanside, New York

We always bring cakes and pastries from Whistle Stop to every party we are invited to. It's the only gourmet bake shop I would consider patronizing in Nassau County. Their prices are always good, the service is always fantastic and their food is the best.

Reviewed By tourguidemomof3 - Lynbrook, New York

Prosperi Bakery takes over where the old Schaeffers bakery used to be: where you knew you would find delicious sweets to make everyone happy when you bring a box home. whenever its a last minute visit you are sure to find a torte or occasion cake that you can bring to a party& have it disappear quickly! nice staff, clean atmosphere & decorative packaging all a plus.

Centre Thai Bistro

Small restuarant in an old strip of stores on a busy street in East Rockaway. Slow service for lunch but the food and portions were outstanding. The best Thai that I have had in a long time!!!!!!!

Reviewed By Jummers - 11559

The absolutely worst Thai food, service and food temperature of any restaurant. Starting with the overcooked fried shumai that was ice cold and the burnt spring rolls, also cold, they served clicked pad Thai that was inedible. The noodles were stuck together and tasted as if they defrosted yesterday's leftovers. The shrimp with asperagus had rubbery shrimp swimming in tasteless water. The basil chicken was no better. We asked for a check and left.

McQuade's Neighborhood Grill

Reviewed By kathymart - Lynbrook, New York

We stopped here for a quick dinner. I had a great burger, and my husband had the salmon prix fixe menu, which he said was delicious. Comfortable, clean, and good service. Nice bar area if you'd like a drink afterwards.
