overall experience good to very good; food from avg to good to very good - if there was a "good" rating between avg and v good that's what I would have given. This was a first time visit for the entire party and we did manage to sample a good number of dishes thanks to the various combo plates. Broiled... More

I took my Dad there for his Birthday. We went to the spot in Deer Park. The food was great the portions were really good and the food was fresh. Its a quaint restaurant not fancy but really very intimate. Went on a Saturday didn't have to wait hours....Way better than Joe's which was down the street.

Stopped here en route to visit of Roosevelt home at Sagamore Hill. Classically designed Long Island clam bar. Excellent food and service. The clams on the half shell are a must. Also enjoyed the fried clam strips.

I must be alone in my impression because there are usually lines out the door at this restaurant. They always offer specials and coupons so maybe people are attracted to that rather than quality.

We went here for the all you can eat crab legs because, well, we love crab legs. Would have loved to give place 5 stars because staff was so efficient, and genuinely friendly. But we were a little turned off by the dirty plate on our table and the dirty menu (and we are not picky - see most of... More

We grew up on Long Island and had never been to Popei's. Wow the food was excellent. Moreover, if you look at the nightly specials, you can have yourself quite a treat at a great price. The Monday night Lobster Clambake cannot be beat - eat up. I had calamari in Fra Diavolo sauce - excellent. Its a seafood restaurant... More
