We've been several times since a friend moved to Greenport a couple of years ago. The fried chicken, for which they are known, is terrific, and so are the chicken pot pies. The wine list features a few local wines. The staff couldn't be friendlier...More

Salamanders has the best food in Greenport. The fried chicken is excellent. We had the Korean ribs which were meaty, and very tasty. Desserts are really going, especially the carrot cake.

Try this restaurant immediately! It has the most delicious, most sophisticated, most wonderful food in town. The space is beautiful, containing both the restaurant and an incredible market. You almost feel like you're in California. A very special place.

Just beware in high season that over-the-counter orders can take a while. But if you are only looking to pick up some great soup from the fridge case in the back of the shop, you can zip in/out under the radar so to speak. Other...More

I consider myself a foodie from NYC and this fried chicken is one of the best I have ever had. They have great international sides to accompany which are also very good too. A must for perfect fried chicken
