Greenport, NY hosts this fun weekend in the beginning of December. Certain restaurants sign up to pair an appetizer-soup with a wine-beer selection for a discounted price. Scrimshaw paired a chowder which was delicious with a glass of wine from LI. The bar area was completely full of happy patrons!

We had a leisurely dinner right on the water, which is what we were looking for. However, the food was not especially good for the price. And, the service was notably slow. There are better options out there.

The food at Scrimshaw is a delight - an Asian-Continental fusion. Rosa, the chef and owner is often around to ensure you have a wonderful time. The ambience is wonderful, whether on the dock in summer or the cozy dining room in brisker weather. The only drawback is the price, but worth it for a special occasion.

Not much to say. It took at least ten minutes to be treated by our server. Throughout the meal he did not seem interested in taking care of us. Once he arrived with our overpriced meals, he auctioned them off as if we were at Waffle House or Denny's. Food was overpriced and came in tiny portions. The quality was... More

Having eaten in some amazing restaurants in Greenport and vicinity, we were extremely disappointed in this restaurant. The service was extremely slow and inattentive (almost negligent). The menu for a seaport restaurant was a scant, odd assortment and blatantly absent of seafood options. The menu item of fried chicken, although the best tasting dish the four of us ate, was... More

The setting is gorgeous: right out on the water. The space inside is pleasing: not crowded. The servers are young, eager, and utterly untrained. They disappear for long intervals. They overlook things like silverware, bread, and bread plates. The food takes a while to arrive, and you've already eaten the 2 tiny rounds of baguette per person in the bread... More

Too dark on the deck outside to see what you are eating. This place has potential but needs that guy on TV to come in and straighten them out.

The food is good and the setting is great, but the service is absolutely inept. We had a 17 yr old kid who couldn't keep track of what we ordered, never poured wine into empty glasses, got utterly confused when we split the check and we had to cancel all the transactions and walk him through it ourselves. Terrible. On... More

My husband, a friend and I had dinner here for the first time tonight. The setting is absolutely gorgeous, overlooking the Shelter Island Sound. And some of the food was good-the dumplings and spring rolls were delicious. However some of the food was inedible. The shrimp was so spicy it made me choke. And the service was just horrendous.

The food was great, the service was good, the prices were high and the noise was unbearable. I get turned off when I have to scream at my dinner partner just to be heard. You spend the mealtime hardly talking at all because you don't want to fight the noise and then you leave feeling like you didn't enjoy yourself.... More
