Located a short walk from the Oyster Bay Marine Center and Sagamore Yacht Club, the restaurant has been serving food and drink since 1896. Our 26th president was said to drop […]

The holiday season is approaching, accompanied by colder temperatures and shorter days. Boating may not be the first thing to come to mind, but we think it still can be. Your love of boating doesn’t just stop because Mother Nature changed her tune; our magazine lets you keep reading about the boating lifestyle. I know […]

Mediterranean restaurants too often limit themselves to a few staple entrees and mezzes. I was glad to discover that the Turkish restaurant Café Turko makes no such mistake. The café, nestled in the heart of Seattle’s art-loving Fremont neighborhood, about two blocks from the bright blue Fremont Bridge and the massive Fremont Troll sculpture, has […]

Before 2006, Le Tub Saloon was a hole-in-the-wall favorite among locals. Things changed in February of that year when Alan Richman of GQ magazine named their 13-ounce sirloin burger the best in the nation. And the rest is burger history. Located off A1A on the Intracoastal Waterway in Hollywood, the restaurant has a 150-foot dock […]

Pier 44

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 […]

        Most boaters who cruise to City Island include a meal in their visits. They gravitate towards the convenience of docking and dining establishments, but a meal at Bistro SK is worth a short walk on land. We grabbed a mooring ball at the City Island Yacht Club and walked to the […]

From the moment you walk into Schafer’s and spot the lobster tank, you’ll expect a fresh seafood experience. If given the option of choosing whether to sit downstairs or upstairs, I’d choose the upstairs on a sunny and clear day. From that vantage point, you’ll see the harbor and the ferries, as well as Connecticut, […]

Visiting Sag Harbor is an exceptional experience for me. It could be the tranquil and scenic harbor, or the picturesque village mere steps from the water, or it might be the aspirational fantasies inspired by the price tags in the charming shops. Whatever the reason I’m so keen for Sag Harbor, enjoying a delicious meal […]

Now that I’ve been there, however, I’m over my resistance, and have added this venue to my east end repertoire of waterfront eateries. The space has been refreshed and […]
