This is a unique property with tons of historic charm. Our party of four had a fabulous meal that could not be faulted in anyway. Comfortable, elegant dining room, and lively bar scene. Perfect night out!

My husband and I had the pleasure of dining here on Monday February 13th and we were so happy to have picked this restaurant to dine in! Such Old World charm with amazing food and service! We enjoyed our white burgundy wine......wine selection is extensive. We dined on the oysters, arugula salad and ribeye steak...... all prepared well and delicious....

Great meal and great atmosphere. Dover sole is great. Fantastic Peking duck. Rabbit was great. A wonderful night! A bit pricy. But memorable. The foie gras was perfect with port glaze. Deserts were just as good. Romantic as well.

We were here with a large group (80) for lunch. We started with very good mimosas. We had a choice of appetizer of salad or corn chowder. The chowder was excellent !! For the entrees, we had a choice of burger, eggs Benedict, crab cake or Croque Monsier (ham and cheese panini). The staff was very good for waiting on...

Our party of eight had a lovely dinner where every dish ordered was to our liking. Our table began with oysters, shrimp cocktail, salads and a beef marrow bone the size of a large ear of corn. We went on to fine entrrs with no room left for dessert. The waitstaff was competent without intruding. The only negative was the...

We sat in the front of the bar with the chess and backgammon board and had a great lunch early Sunday afternoon. The prices were as expected with being in a place like that but it was worth it in my opinion. The wine list was more like an encyclopedia and had amazing information about all the different varietals they...

4 of us stopped in for a nightcap and 2 and half hrs later we all agreed we'll be back. They have a great bartender serving generous drinks. Its in an old hotel built more than a hundred years ago and its just like it was when it was built except the prices are a bit higher. It's a treasure...

Lunch was served in the small "Atrium" off the main dining room. Prompt and courteous service. Goat cheese omlette with fresh salad was delicious, an oversized shrimp salad with pears, avocado, bacon bits could have fed two. The Banana Foster topped the meal. We'll be back. : )

After a rather disappointing stay at a Shelter Island hotel, we arrived with mixed feelings at the American. Similar in style to the hotel we had just left, 'American dream of a bygone yesterday' I might call it, I was now worried about another night on a bygone mattress. Little did I have to worry. We arrived in a dream....

If you are here, you are somebody, but that may mean somebody who settle for want to be fab food. The lobster served out of the shell takes away all my fun, sorry! Love the atmosphere though and the backgammon table, so cerebral!
