AcQua

  The location along Merrick Bay is cool, the restaurant’s indoor and waterside décor is comfortable, and its service staff is agreeable but not intrusive. Yet there’s not a single indication that anyone working in the kitchen at AcQua is laid back — you know from your first bite that the focus is on the […]

Tucked among mangroves on the Intracoastal Waterway, Calaveras Cantina is a new addition to the recently constructed Harbourside Place complex in Jupiter. The restaurant is across the street from public docks that have 10 transient slips. The docks are open daily from 8:00 am to midnight. Calavera means skull in Spanish, so I wasn’t surprised […]

When it comes to dock and dining restaurants, Lighthouse Waterfront Café has it all. Good food, welcoming service, and an attractive setting with inside and outside seating and a friendly outdoor bar featuring music every Friday. We woke our taste buds up with a signature mojito of Bulgarian ginger vodka, tequila, and mint, and then […]

On the Waterfront is a perfect spot to dock and dine while enjoying boating on the Great South Bay.  It is located right down the street from Sandspit Park Beach and Marina. The restaurant is more appropriately described as a bar and grill. The dining room has a nice view of the canal and is […]

If for some unknown reason this review was limited to just nine words, it would be sufficient to describe the Beach House Restaurant — the view is delightful and the food is delicious. Luckily, I have another 300 words allotted to describing this pleasant restaurant on the grounds of Morgan’s Swan River Marina. There’s seating […]

Pier 44

April 1, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Pier 44 has been open in Babylon across from Sampawams Creek for over 30 years. The wood paneling and the giant shark out front give it a very cool old school feel, as if you’ve arrived back at a classic seafood shack. But looks aren’t everything, as Pier 44 proves once you step inside. There […]

  History isn’t usually a reason I seek out an eatery. I’m looking for good food, friendly service, and convenient docking, and Althouse 1848 satisfies my criteria. There’s a warm feeling inside this two-level gastropub and when the weather’s warm, there’s also outdoor seating overlooking the water. Though the inviting bar area has of the […]

  Tres Palms is a quaint waterfront restaurant in Babylon Village that can’t conceal its love of the ocean, waves, and surfing. The relaxing and stress-shedding decor makes you feel like you could be in the Caribbean, rather than overlooking the Great South Bay. The wait staff was equally tranquil. Nothing was rushed, but everything […]

If your friend has celiac disease and accidently ate something with gluten in it, he or she could have a severe reaction lasting from hours to days. Gluten, the […]

When I envision a romantic dining spot, I see moonlight sparkling off the water that is moving gently past our window. I picture servers who are professional yet genial, never intrusive but always helpful. When it comes to the food, what’s on our plates should elicit almost as much passion as my dining companion.
