We attended a private party at venerable Otto's Sea Grill (est'd 1929) in Freeport, NY on Sunday afternoon, May 21. It was our first visit to the historic "nautical mile" on Long Island's south shore, but it won't be our last. A separate room that...More

First, we were ignored for 20 minutes. No one came to our table at all. Finally I asked a bus boy if he could find out who our server was. He went off but never returned. Finally, another server took pity on us and apologized....More

Food was horrible, the band gave me a headache! My brother and husband ordered the shrimp scampi. They were skimpy on the sauce and the bottom of their plates had more water than anything. Shrimps were overs done. I ordered the SBLAT which is grilled...More
