Although we have been going to Crabtree's for many years, it is always a delight and a special treat. Yanni the founder of this amazing local restaurant, and Demetrius, his dapper and charming son have created a venue for every member of the family. The restaurant has a long and exciting backstory beginning when Yanni founded the Crabtree's after arriving from Greece.
The restaurant was named after Ms. Crabtree, the prim and proper school teacher from the "Our Gang Comedy" tv series. The restaurant has been a success for many decades and has become one of long islands best restaurants and best values!

Last year Demetrius was passed the "baton" as the on premises"Managing Partner" with Yanni enjoying more time off but staying in contact with his Demetrius, and the restaurant. The transistion between father and son has been smooth and added another layer of excellence to this diminutive gem.

We arrived at Crabtree's on a week day in March to enjoy another wonderful meal and for a belated birthday celebration. We were immediately greeted by Demetrius who has continued to grow and prosper as the on premises managing partner. We were seated in the charming garden room with a view of the walled outdoor garden.

We began our meal with our favorite appetizer:
Crabcakes- Filled with crabmeat and accompanied by garden vegetables this is by far the best crabcake dish on long island!

We then shared a large and bountiful greek salad with a delightful house dressing, croutons and feta cheese.

For our entrees: we chose grouper with a potato crust and a fabulous chicken dish with potatoes, Both melted in our mouths. Simply Superb.

For Dessert we had a champagne toast and a platter of cheesecake, flourless chocolate cake and an apple crumb pie with homemade ice cream.

Crabtree"s is the perfect neighborhood restaurant as they focus on excellence in food, service and ambiance.

They are famous for their amazing Brunch on Sundays and for their extensive catering and party menus. Their popularity and local fame are well deserved,

Kudos to Yanni and Demetrius for their iconic status as one of long island's best restaurants, and their Star Diamond Award for Excellence.

Make reservations, as this restaurant is always busy. Crabtrees is also our favorite New Years Eve venue! A Gem!

They have a very eclectic menu and you will enjoy the food. We go there very often. We like the owner and we find that the staff is very accommodating. It won't cost you a fortune to eat there.

Kind of got the feeling I was in a high end restaurant without the stuffiness.
The bread was warm and excellent.
Mediterranean Sword Fish dish was cooked just right and tasty.
The waiters were pleasant and attentive.
Its was a nice dinner.
