Waterview & Waterfront Dining


Mill Pond House

Mill Pond House nestled on the Mill Pond in Centerport offers fine dining with serene sunsets and picturesque views across to Centerport Harbor. Mill Pond's extensive lunch/dinner/weekend brunch menu includes steaks, seafood, raw bar and delicious fresh sushi options. A table on the heated covered year-round patio is a must and worth the wait.

  • Tip: Enjoy cocktails with a view at the newly renovated Pond Bar and don't miss Monday Night Lobster Bake.
  • Located at 437 East Main Street, Centerport, NY

Cold Spring Harbor

Harbor Mist

Harbor Mist is located within walking distance to the quaint village of  Cold Spring Harbor. Fine coastal cuisine and spectacular views of the boat-filled inner harbor provide a memorable experience. Be sure to take a stroll across the street to Billy Joel Park to take a picture and even better if at sunset.

  • Tip: Brunch is available on Saturday and Sunday. And between 4pm & 9pm on Mondays and Tuesdays you have the opportunity to get 50% off of your food bill. 
  • Located at 105 Harbor Road (25a), Cold Spring Harbor, NY



Prime is a high end waterfront restaurant with docking available (reservations needed). Whether you come by boat or car, Prime is sure to impress. Hang out on the "fan tail" deck or on "the porch" for panoramic views of Huntington Harbor. Their menu includes “primers,” raw bar favorites, mizu sushi, steaks and chops, surf and turf, and home-made desserts.

  • Tip: There is a separate dockside menu served waterside. Catch movies behind the cabana bar on Mondays during the summer. Jazz brunch is served on Sundays. 
  • Located at 117 North New York Avenue, Huntington, NY


The Whales Tale

Head to The Whales Tale for low key, casual waterfront fun and food. This "hideaway on a half shell", overlooks Britannia Marina with western views. A beautiful sunset is a sure thing and so is the fresh fish caught from local waters & brought up the dock each & every morning.  Their famous tropical cocktails and farm to table produce is an added bonus to the menu. This is an easy place to become a regular.

  • Tip: Specials on Monday - Thursday including Taco Tuesdays and Raw Bar specials on Wednesday.
  • Located at 81 Fort Salonga Road, Northport New York 11768 in the Britannia Marina. 

La Casa Cafe

La Casa Cafe is one of the few Long Island restaurants located right on the beach. It's a great casual place to bring the family and besides good food, you can enjoy panoramic views of the Long Island Sound and beautiful sunsets.  Crab Meadow beach, boardwalk and playground adds to the fun of a summer night out.

  • Tip: This is a seasonal restaurant and closes at the end of September so make sure to get there before the summer is over.
  • Located at 445 Waterside Avenue, Northport, NY

The Purple Elephant

  • Tip: This restaurant is known for its vegan cuisine. Also, it's great Happy Hour Mon-Fri!
