Great food... second time here and both times understaffed and apologetic for taking over 2 hours for 2 lunches. Won't be back unfortunately.

Dear Kristen S, Thank you for visiting us. We do apologize for your lengthy wait. We were surprised by a record-size lunch on Monday. Had you come Tuesday, you would have found a very relaxed dining room. Hope you will reconsider & visit us again soon. More

Have wanted to try this place for a long time and finally got the chance this week! I had heard rave reviews about their fried chicken and I wasn't disappointed! The pickles and corn bread that started our meal were unusual and delicious. Best service anywhere! Plan to go back very soon!

This is an informal lunch and dinner locale with gourmet foods for sale. Very nice ambience in downtown Greenport. Our waitress was very nice and professional as was management. Menu items are healthy and plentiful. Three of us had the Grass Fed Burger platter with fries. Very tender, perfectly cooked, great sides. We really loved it.

When the other place we chose originally to go to for dinner was closed , we ended up here having a great time, some good wine & attentive service.

This restaurant is right in the heart of the Greenport business district, convenient to retail shops. We first tried it for lunch, and were so pleased we returned for brunch the same weekend. The food is very fresh, and the baked goods are fabulous. We tried the shirred eggs which are not often found on a menu. They were perfectly... More

Stumbled upon this when we were looking for a place for a quick lunch. Service was attentive, food was actually quite good and nicely plated. Not much in the ambiance department, but would stop in again for lunch. Reliable and good food.

Went on a Sunday morning for breakfast. We were seated immediately and then didn't see anybody for a long time. Then we ordered coffee and drinks. Didn't see that for a long time, the meal came much later and it was ok.

On our yearly trip to the East End, we always like to try out new restaurants for lunch. Saw this on the internet & made reservations. Was pleasantly surprised when we showed up late that it wasn't necessary. Food was very good and different from the expected. Soups & lunch entrées were really tasteful and the various selections were interesting.... More
