Just had lunch at this restaurant in the center of Rye. Atmosphere pleasing, decor modern and music playing softly in the background. Waitstaff very accommodating and helpful. Menu varied with salads, appetizers, pizzas and creative sandwiches. I had the fried Calamari with a delicious spicy sauce which was tender and tasty. THE BEST CALAMARI I’VE EVER TASTED! The Cobb salad, Spicy chicken rice bowl and Chicken tenders for my grandson. All tasty dishes with good portions and appropriately priced. I would recommend this restaurant for a pleasant and leisurely lunch in town.

Frankie & Johnnie's Steakhouse

Reviewed By jolig697

We ordered the porterhouse steak for 3 and I had a Caesar salad. All the food well cooked well and presented nicely. The tables are good size with room in between to move. The dining is nice and it was a lovely evening. We weren’t rushed and the timing felt good. The waitress was attentive and friendly.

On the Way Cafe

Reviewed By justsaying49

We just enjoyed a delicious breakfast of a fresh from the oven mixed berry scone and a crab and goat cheese omelette served with home fries and toast. Since we love flavored coffee our sweet waitress obliged by adding hazelnut syrup. The icing on the cake though is owner Grace who stops to chat with every patron. That is the one ingredient that gives a homey feel to any restaurant. There's no place like home...even when eating out.Thank you Cindy.

Town Dock Tavern

Reviewed By estells2014

This is a very old guard establishment that looks a bit run down and rustic but still provides excellent service and well prepared standard American food. One way to know if a place has maintained quality is to try a well known standard. Their French dip was perfect. The service is fast and professional. The prices were moderate. This is a causal place that has retained its ability to please a wide variety of people.

Excellent service on a snowy weekday when there were NO other people there for lunch. Sit by the fireplace and enjoy the atmosphere! Surprisingly good Chinese dumpling appetizer. Huge and tasty Char burger with fixings -- mushrooms, cheese, onions. Lunch special combinations are very fairly priced. Plenty of parking. We'll be back soon, as an out of towner listing on business from time to time.

Morgans Fish House

Reviewed By MarkWBoca

Morgans specializes in fresh seafood. I was quite pleased with my Halibut Special, which I ordered "medium rare.” My wife enjoyed her fish tacos, and our friends ordered salmon. What was noteworthy for such a generally good and expensive restaurant was the poor service. We had to ask for water a couple of times, and the waitress never returned to pour wine. The restaurant was largely empty on this Monday night, so there was no excuse for such poor service. The waitress may have been new or inexperienced, but the supervisor should have made sure that service was better.

in the basement of a home in a residential neighborhood. So excellent as you would never be able to build it now, and it's so much more low-key than the way the rest of the town has become. It looks like it would be a dive, but you see everyone here. $5 burgers and well-priced everything else make it a regular place.

Rye Roadhouse

Reviewed By tomsriver1960

We have been coming here for many, many years. The food has been consistently good and the service is also. On our last few visits--all mid-week, including last night, it has been so noisy we couldn't have a conversation. It seems that guests (mostly men) start out in the bar, drink perhaps too much, then come into for dinner and think they are the only ones in the restaurant (or the world). Our last three dinners have been very unpleasant. I think the management owes it to other diners to make sure some people aren't unduly loud and that diners can enjoy their meal.We will not return.So Sorry to hear of your unpleasant experience due to neighboring customers being too loud. Truthfully it is very difficult as owners and staff to manage the noise level. People come to our place expecting to to "eat, drink, and be merry." Given the size and dimensions of our place the noise levels rise pretty quickly. Things tend to be more quiet during lunch hours as well as the early or later dinner hours (5pm-6:30/ 8:30+). I hope you will reconsider -- we will do our part to address unruly patrons in a more impactful manner

Rye Grill and Bar

Reviewed By HansGH16

In the UK this would be a gastro pub. This large restaurant has a wide menu of basic dishes which it executes very well. There is also outdoor seating if the weather permits and parking. The dishes are reliable and well made, service is excellent. A really pleasant place for Sunday lunch, when it is child friendly.
