Located next to the bobbing boats of a marina, Kingston's Clam Bar serves up fresh air alongside its fresh seafood. Red umbrellas shade a row of tables outside along the dock, and French doors admit sea breezes into the dining room. There, servers crisscross the red brick floor with morsels on casual, plastic plates, such as a lobster roll stuffed with lemon-mayo dressing and tender chilled meat.

Five-year-old local favorite Ludlow Bistro cooks up innovative, yet simple cuisine and compliments it with modern décor and a friendly, attentive serving staff that will try to meet any request—except for those beginning with "I dare you to…" Diners can dig their claws into artfully arranged appetizers such as the lump crab cakes, whose citrus-marinated fennel and carrots jam harmoniously with chili aioli ($13). Pastas, such as the fresh buccatini, take tongues on a tour of the Tuscan countryside with a merry band of pan-seared chicken, hand-crushed plum tomatoes, and bruchetta goat cheese ($23), along with a sassy 40-year-old divorcée trying to find herself. Savor a whiskered water dweller with the Cajun seared cat fish, paired with a zesty duo of spicy coleslaw and chili cream-corn beurre blanc ($25). Carnivorous connoisseurs, meanwhile, will want to feast on finless finds such as the rib eye with herb gnocchi, caramelized peppers, and a port-wine reduction ($28) or a grilled pork chop, accompanied by braised red swiss chard, gorgonzola mashed potatoes, and caramelized peaches ($26). Oven originals are also on hand, including freshly baked breads and desserts.

To the chefs at Popei's Clam Bar & Seafood Restaurant, there is not one correct way to prepare seafood. That’s why the team of culinary inventors likes to experiment, creating dishes from the more standard blackened Cajun swordfish to the avant-garde buffalo and thai calamari. The nightly all-you-can-eat dinners feature one seafood option per night, and satiate even diners with five stomachs. Beyond seafood dishes—including the house’s fresh little-neck clams and lobster stuffed with shrimp, scallops, crab, and feta cheese—the chefs sizzle up an array of meaty creations. Their half-pound burgers support a variety of hearty toppings, and baby back ribs and veal parmigiana showcase the chefs’ ability to handle meat better than a conflict-resolution expert who specializes in farm-animal relationships.

The towering windows that line the walls of Senix Creek Inn provide breathtaking views of the Senix Marina waterfront—but the scenery isn't the main attraction. The casual restaurant's seafood-centric menu blends global culinary influences: staples such as clam chowder, stuffed fish, and lump crab cakes are served alongside more exotic dishes such as kung-pao-style calamari. Marinated steaks and hearty pastas round out the offerings. To complete the restaurant's seaside aesthetic, the dining room features soft lighting, rustic bare-wood floors, and exposed rafters.

From the 150-gallon saltwater aquarium, iridescent tropical fish gaze out onto the cushy crescent-shaped booths and mahogany wood tables of the Black and Blue Seafood Chophouse dining room. Soft lighting and a crackling fireplace illuminate a handsome mahogany bar as bartenders top off glasses of fine wines. Meanwhile, chefs sear cuts of certified Black-Angus beef Argentine steaks, and sous chefs and self-hating mermaids fold organic ingredients and fresh seafood into lobster bisques, creamy pastas, and Spanish-style paellas—dishes lauded by Long Island Food Critic. Throughout the week, the restaurant plays host to a variety of live performances by popular local musicians.

Every seat inside Canterbury's Oyster Bar & Grill gives diners the feeling they’re sitting inside a special kind of time capsule. That’s because all the surrounding walls are covered with historical photographs of Oyster Bay’s history. Because the restaurant has been around for more than 30 years, this reverence for the past turns meals into a timeless experience; diners may even eat some of the same oyster dishes that originally made the area a haven for seafood lovers. Guests will find the menu full of signature ocean treats, from raw and baked oysters done in myriad preparations to seafood towers that combine the likes of lobster, tuna sashimi, and other delicacies into shareable feasts. Filet mignon and parmesan-crusted chicken get all the same careful attention in the kitchen as the seafood, with careful presentations and bedtime stories every night.
