In town for a wedding and we chose to visit the Frisky Oyster entirely based on the strength of their menu. I literally wanted to order one of everything! However, in order to keep costs down, I limited myself to one item for each course. We started at the bar and had a glass of the sparkling rose (made in... More

Dined here last night and I was blown away by how friendly and accommodating the chef was. I have several allergies, which the restaurant took very seriously. The waitress actually wrote my allergies on the paper menu and the chef then put ✅ and ❎ onto the dishes that were safe and unsafe and what ingredients he could leave out... More

Made reservations well in advance due to my father's 80th birthday. It was on a Monday, where some restaurants were not even open. It started out pretty empty, but was full by the time we left. Alcoholic drinks were delicious, and wine selections bountiful. Menu was a little different from their website menu, so was a little disappointed when they... More

Was recommended to me by my Family who are out east often... and it did NOT disappoint! I eat out at top restaurants in NYC for business and pleasure, and I would put this place up there with any of them. Sat at the bar as we did not have a reservation (a must it seems), but they serve the... More

I stopped into the Frisky Oyster with my wife last week for a quick bite. We only had oysters, salad, fries, and cocktails. But we loved everything. I look forward to going back!

Different cocktails from the norm, I tasted 3 of them and they were all equally fabulous. As far as the food was concerned, I was worried when I looked at the menu as there were no veggie options, however the waiting staff assured me that any of the entrees could be adapted. I put them to the test and they... More

Waitress seemed to be rushing us out the door. The food was just alright. Corn soup was delicious. Limited menu. Probably would not go back. Dinner for two was $179 without tip which we thought was expensive.

Came here for dinner with a party of 5. There was a wedding party next to us, so perhaps this is why it was very crowded and seemed stressful for the wait staff. Food was average and wait was long. Very very loud inside and we couldn't even move, the wedding party was standing over us talking with guests as... More

We dined at the Frisky Osyter one recent Saturday night in Greenport. The food and service were good. The fish we had was a bit dry and not as well seasoned as we would have liked, however. It was a nice dinner, but not quite up to the level we would have expected for the price.

We managed to eat at two of the "big three" places in the Village of Greenport. It is hard to imagine how this one is number three. We had a terrific meal here, the dishes well crafted and innovatively put together, clearly a true "Chef" (Bobby Beaver, Chef/Owner) created the dishes and created them well. We had lovely service as... More
