I haven't been here for years.. they reopened I think 2 years ago. The place is large and really nice, with a large bar with tv screens.. my son got the shrimp wrap and I got chicken salad sandwich. They both came with soup.. The sandwiches were very bland.. even the cole slaw was bland. We added salt and pepper.... More

The first thing that struck me upon entering was how big this place is, very spacious for a diner. Service was pretty good, my meal was very good and prices more than reasonable.

I was glad to see the Nautilus reopen after a few shuttered years. Same reliable food, good selection, ok prices. Great place to go with a group because there is something for every taste.

Had a late lunch with my family. I had a chef salad that was big enough for 2, beautifully presented. We also had buffalo burger and chicken wrap - both of which were enjoyed. Service was good and wait staff pleasant. Would go back anytime to try other entrees. A little pricey for lunch but was well worth it.

We have gone to Nautilus for years and were upset when it closed for a time. Happy to say it's open again. The Greek salad is the best on Long Island. My only negative comment is since Nautilus reopened it has gotten more expensive. I suppose this due to the cost of food, but it now costs the same for... More

But when it did reopen, I went there and I was disappointed. I tried it a number of times as friends gave me rave reviews of its past lore, before it closed years ago. At no time was I impressed by the food. It was blah. One time I went with a group. Some ordered Fettuccine Alfredo. Bad idea at... More

After being closed for remodeling, the classic "Long Island Diner" is back. Though they don't quite have the 4000 page menu that they used to have, there is still plenty to choose from. The place looks nice and fresh and so is the food. Choose from just about any cuisine that touches the Mediterranean. Specialty dishes, comfort food and still... More

Went to eat at the Nautilus and was so happy it re opened! It's just not the same as it was. Food not great. Ordered a Greek salad and the feta cheese was in big clumps. Dressing horrible .Our waiter brought the salad and burger out at the same time. I will not be going back. I guess you cant... More
