Situated at the mouth of the Connetquot River overlooking the Great South Bay, View Restaurant enjoys one of the most beautiful and ideal waterfront dining locations available on Long Island. Whether you are on the outdoor deck, the newly renovated cocktail lounge or the elegant contemporary dining room, the panoramic view is ever present. The magnificent surroundings are only the welcoming mat for what awaits you. For 23 years, View Restaurant has taken great pride in our reputation for exquisite cuisine, professional presentation and excellent service. We look forward to serving you.

"Positives: charming, efficient service; quality food well-prepared and served with an artist's eye. Less positive: View is popular for big groups celebrating special occasions, so even on a Thursday parking was near impossible. Loud music leaks into the dining room from the sometimes raucous bar, so depending on where you're sitting you may feel like the least-favorite second cousins at a wedding. For me, the minuses don't detract from the pluses. Try for a seat on the deck or near the windows for a fabulous experience."

"We brought some friends with sophisticated palates to Nippers on Saturday and converted them to lifelong fans. Pristine oysters, baked and raw; ahi tuna; blackened swordfish; bacon wrapped shrimp; diver scallops - - - every dish was perfectly prepared. Service was friendly and attentive. Nippers is our go-to place whenever we want to impress (and whenever we want to be impressed!)"
