What a beautiful place to go during the holiday season. I don’t think I have ever been to a more beautifully decorated restaurant. The food was delicious and the staff was wonderful. Did I mention the live Christmas music ? Don’t miss this experience.

Lake Grove Diner

Reviewed By ThereGoHappyPeople

We were delighted to find Lake Grove Diner and we enjoyed a quick, filling dinner without any fuss. Portions here are massive and of course the selection of items is seemingly endless. You can get just about anything. ha. I can't say the items are the most gourmet, but I believe the food was very fresh. Service was great....the staff works very hard. I would go back in a heartbeat,

Robinson's Tea Room

Reviewed By Tranquila

I've had cream tea in England and in various tearooms in NYC but these scones are of the American variety - large, overly sweet, mushy/cakey and triangular in shape. What they call clotted cream is definitely not clotted cream. It tasted instead of a mixture of crème fraîche or sour cream, whipped cream and possibly some kind of whipped topping. The room itself was kitschy and the pop music was too loud for my taste. I looked forward to visiting after reading so many positive reviews about their scones, especially, but was disappointed.

Maureen's Kitchen

Reviewed By AllanNCynthia

What a find! only open for breakfast and lunch, this "cow themed" local favorite is incredible. Family managed, outstanding quality and service, large portions, and gourmet touches throughout the menu, presents the best of the old diner days and today's high quality standards. Whatever can be homemade is and the efficiency is really something to observe. You need some time to enjoy this busy spot and there's enough interesting things to notice while you wait. Even a motorcycle decorated in cow patterns. Couldn't believe our first visit, had to buy a couple of Maureen's cow coffee mugs, and then brought some grandkids a few days later. Come hungry and better bring cash - no credit cards here.

Crazy Beans Stony Brook

Reviewed By 112Lee

Went at a busy lunch time. Service good but had a little trouble attracting waitress when we had a request to make. It is a small restaurant that gets very busy, with good reason. The food is delicious. The french toast was great, so were the pancakes I ordered. We even ordered a hamburger to go so we could try the meat that was not meat. Would highly recommend, the food is very tasty and fresh. Service was very nice, but could get hectic if you had to ask something after you ordered. We never got the maple syrup we ordered extra but they gladly took it off the bill when we paid. The best french toast I have tasted in awhile and everything else we ordered was good too.

Ruvo Restaurant East

Reviewed By ferryboaters

We visited Ruvo during Long Island Restaurant week because they listed a variety of menu offerings, unlike some restaurants where the offerings are few and predictable. We were not disappointed. From the steamed mussels appetizer, to a flounder and shrimp oreganata, to a berry crumble topped with ice cream - it was all delicious. (And the martinis and coffee were perfect, too). My review would not be complete without a tip of the hat to our server, Sadie, who was gracious and attentive. We will be going back.

After hearing good things about this place, we had to give it a try, and are glad we did! The corned beef hash my husband ordered was an enormous presentation, and excellent. The corned beef was mostly meat, not filler, and was delicious. Another in our group ordered a Benedict special of the day, which consisted of one short rib (I think) and one crab cake Benedict. I tasted the beef and it was Delicious! I was a bit disappointed in my Benedict choice, which came with sausage gravy, on a biscuit. The sausage gravy was a bit pasty and had something in it I wasn’t fond of. In fairness, I live down south now, and it is something on most menus, so I may just be partial to the taste I get in the Carolinas. Also, one of my poached eggs was overdone, and I don’t eat hard cooked yolks. I gave part of that egg to my husband. Our server, Sean, was terrific. The portions of everything are enormous. I must say, the noise level was very loud, and the room was only half full. There is a smaller room in back that seemed quieter.

We had a family dinner for seven at this lovely restaurant overlooking across from Danford's Inn in Port Jefferson. Some of our people favor a vegetarian menu and nothing that we ordered failed to please. My Pad Thai was excellent with shrimp and a few others had a meat variation on this. The vegan entrees were creative and pleasing and a growing young man who ordered the Kobe beef burger came away very happy. A roasted Brussel sprout appetizer was amazing, but I didn't think much of the seasoned fries as an appetizer, but that's just me. Excellent selection of beer and wine and my "Flying Dog Ale" ( I like to order beers with weird names)) was excellent. We'll definitely be going back.

Best deli on Long Island and ice tea! Tough to eat the entire sandwich but you can take it home for dinner or lunch the next day. Be prepared to spend $20 on a sandwich and a large ice tea, but it’s worth it. Crowd favorite is the Gasm!!
