We ate dinner as part of the fall Sunday night "dinner and a room" special. There is absolutely nothing special about it. Expecting the ambiance of an old New England Inn we were severely disappointed with a wide open, over-lit, romance free aurora that is usually found in an old peoples home somewhere deep in the Florida panhandle. Considering there... More

We've been dining @ RHI for over 25 years. Like a good wine, it only gets better each year. Chef Joe Smith is extremely creative. Service excellent. Owners attention to detail shows. A must go when visiting Shelter Island.

Perfect from start to finish.......not one complaint. We were seated promptly and immediately greeted by our waiter with menus in hand. The food courses came out with perfect timing and the meals were prepared to gourmet perfection. By far the best meal that we've had out all summer. Staff was friendly and the setting is romantic and beautiful.

We went for the Sunday Jazz but ended up having dinner on the porch too. The food was elegant and seasonal with local fresh ingredients. The inn is a hidden gem also. The Jazz group and singer were outstanding. Looking forward to a return visit for a weekend stay on Shelter Island.

We hadn't been here in a number of years because the Island rumor was that the food wasn't that good.......well, we were pleasantly surprised! Along with the lovely view, the food and drinks were excellent. We had a table outside and enjoyed at special evening!

Settled in for a light dinner of shrimp cocktail and the caprese. Shrimp were huge but a bit stale. Buffalo mozzarella was creamy, tomatoes were local, fresh and flavorful.
