Seasonal Menu changes each season. They make use of the best ingredients and handle them expertly. Prix Fix specials are usually the best deal here, otherwise, you will be spending some good amounts of money. It is worth it for what you get though. Atmosphere is quiet and casual and the sunset views from the upstairs dining room are spectacular... More

I've never had anything but an excellent meal there and we eat there about six times a year. The menu changes with the seasons and everything is very fresh and tasty. One drawback for me is the lack of an elevator when being seated on the second floor. Unfortunately if I go there early they are not serving downstairs. If... More

We have enjoyed Fifth Season many times in the past. When the weather is nice it is very enjoyable to sit and eat outside. Their Sunday brunch is very nice. Always have a good dinner menu. I enjoy the fish dishes. Other family members enjoy the duck and steak. Atmosphere is very comfortable and the service is usually above average... More

The atmosphere in the bar area is really nice. They had a duo playing and they were really good and not over powering. These guys are there first thursday of the month we are going back to see them. The drinks and apps were really good (although very small portions).

Nothing really special here. The fish was so overdone we couldn't eat it. However, the short rib was excellent. But, for thirty bucks for one piece I felt like I was back at Disney! This might be a good last minute option but definitely not worth making it a destination.

We have been to some selective and special dinner events (wine tasting etc) and as well on a special occasion "date" with no kids. I have never been disappointed nor had difficultly getting a great entree and meal experience for my selective diet requests.

Final night in Long Island,Treating the family to a special meal on the last day of our holiday before going back to the UK. Great food all round, everyone very happy with the food. The only thing we found that the space between us and the next chairs was tight. Service excellent.

Description
Local farms and waters are the inspiration for this New American restaurant that focuses on preparing menus using ingredients that change with each season. American microbrews and wines are carefully selected to pair with each dish our chefs create. Enjoy our House-Infused Artisanal Cocktails made with seasonal purees and fresh squeezed juices while overlooking the Long Island Sound on either the outdoor patio, upstairs seating or cozy lounge. Established in 2004 in Greenport, this Zagat top-rated restaurant for both food and service moved in Spring 2008 to Port Jefferson harbor.
