When the other place we chose originally to go to for dinner was closed , we ended up here having a great time, some good wine & attentive service.

This restaurant is right in the heart of the Greenport business district, convenient to retail shops. We first tried it for lunch, and were so pleased we returned for brunch the same weekend. The food is very fresh, and the baked goods are fabulous. We tried the shirred eggs which are not often found on a menu. They were perfectly... More

Stumbled upon this when we were looking for a place for a quick lunch. Service was attentive, food was actually quite good and nicely plated. Not much in the ambiance department, but would stop in again for lunch. Reliable and good food.

Went on a Sunday morning for breakfast. We were seated immediately and then didn't see anybody for a long time. Then we ordered coffee and drinks. Didn't see that for a long time, the meal came much later and it was ok.

On our yearly trip to the East End, we always like to try out new restaurants for lunch. Saw this on the internet & made reservations. Was pleasantly surprised when we showed up late that it wasn't necessary. Food was very good and different from the expected. Soups & lunch entrées were really tasteful and the various selections were interesting.... More

First, a very happy customer recommended we eat here. From there things just got better. Very friendly staff, prompt service, incredible food. The owner spent time talking with us as well. An extremely enjoyable evening.

This place has a flat vibe. The menu is interesting but the results were indifferent. I don't get the fascination with ciabatta for sandwiches ... the bread to filling ratio is thrown askew. The Tunisian hummus sandwich here was a couple of smears of hummus somewhere between three inches of ciabatta, then some cucumbers, etc. It was an acceptable sandwich... More

Hello GaddisGadabout, Not sure what to make of your review! The "Tunisian" hummus sandwich is Mediterranean through & through, in fact, it has been one of our most popular sandwiches. Can't imagine those fabulous French oil-cured olives on rye, but everyone to their own taste. As for a "flat vibe," we really try to please our customers. We will speak... More

We stopped in Salamanders on Front because we liked the menu. We started our lunch with terrific cocktails and friendly service! We shared the clams with tomatoes and lemongrass, served with a delicious bread; which was the best I've had!! SO tasty! We then had delicious fried chicken and a turkey sandwich; you certainly don't walk away hungry!!
