Different cocktails from the norm, I tasted 3 of them and they were all equally fabulous. As far as the food was concerned, I was worried when I looked at the menu as there were no veggie options, however the waiting staff assured me that any of the entrees could be adapted. I put them to the test and they... More

Waitress seemed to be rushing us out the door. The food was just alright. Corn soup was delicious. Limited menu. Probably would not go back. Dinner for two was $179 without tip which we thought was expensive.

Came here for dinner with a party of 5. There was a wedding party next to us, so perhaps this is why it was very crowded and seemed stressful for the wait staff. Food was average and wait was long. Very very loud inside and we couldn't even move, the wedding party was standing over us talking with guests as... More

We dined at the Frisky Osyter one recent Saturday night in Greenport. The food and service were good. The fish we had was a bit dry and not as well seasoned as we would have liked, however. It was a nice dinner, but not quite up to the level we would have expected for the price.

We managed to eat at two of the "big three" places in the Village of Greenport. It is hard to imagine how this one is number three. We had a terrific meal here, the dishes well crafted and innovatively put together, clearly a true "Chef" (Bobby Beaver, Chef/Owner) created the dishes and created them well. We had lovely service as... More

Good service and excellent oysters. But we didn't like the fatty filet which we were appropriately comped. The manager even ran to catch up with us after we left to make sure we left satisfied with resolution. That was a nice touch.

This restaurant was pretty good. I had a delicious oyster dish, that was stuffed with cheese. The wine was very good and the service was excellent. If I was back in Greenport, I would go back there.

Loved the name of the restaurant and I love oysters which drew me in. While they do serve oysters this chef owned restaurant is a foodie destination. Rich the bartender makes fun, great drinks!

I recently went back to Frisky Oyster for a meal. We try to sit at the bar whenever possible because there is great people watching on the street that you don't want to miss, as well as a crazy cat who climbs in and out of a window on the second floor of the building directly across the street.

My wife and I get out to this area of Long Island every year. And every year we eat at Frisky Oyster. The food and service are always some of the best we experience anywhere. Unfortunately, because it is so good, it can get crowded so make a reservation if you want good food and a fun atmosphere.
