Mascot Dock

If you're looking for something to do outdoors in the Patchogue/Holbrook area, we've got just the place - Mascot Dock and the adjacent Shorefront Park. This is a great place to sit and enjoy views of the Great South Bay, watch ferries to Fire Island, or just relax on a park bench. Kids will also enjoy watching people crab and fish along the dock!

If you're hungry, eat at Lombardi's on the Bay. Both places are right in the park area. Nancy's is a take-out type of place serving crab cakes and other seafood treats. We haven't tried Nancy's yet but, judging by the lines, it must be delicious. We did eat at Lombardi's on the Bay and we really enjoyed their VERY generous (and tasty) portions. The Salad with Grilled Salmon, Chicken Caprese Sandwich and Spaghetti with Meatballs were all good.

Oh Captain


There's a new seafood restaurant in town and it's darn good. Not only can you get good food at the Greek Captain Seafood Restaurant in Huntington Station, but you also get a lot of it.

Speaking from experience, our personal favorites from the menu include the Grilled Salmon over Salad for $12.99 (it's HUGE) and the Sauteed Shrimps and Scallops with Vegetables over rice or pasta (complete dinner $11.99). Sources tell us that the Fried Calamari is also delicious (we'll try it next time).

If you're looking for a formal dining experience, or if you like having wine or a cocktail with your meal, this isn't the place for you (we don't think they've got a liquor license). But, if you're looking for tasty food, large portions and quick meals, you must try Greek Captain Seafood Restaurant. You'll thank us and the captain.
