A coastal grill from the owners of Oar Steak and Seafood, Latitude 121 takes advantage of its location not far from Long Island Sound with a diverse seafood menu. In a review, the New York Times highly recommended the lobster pot pie and Chilean sea bass, but guests can also opt to go raw with a bevy of fresh clams, oysters, and tuna tartare. Just as the ocean's fish live peacefully alongside mermaids' pet turtles, Latitude 121's menu has more than just seafood. Filet mignon and angus beef burgers highlight the turf options, and desserts include scoops of Gifford's signature ice cream.

Located just across from the inn, the colonial-style shopping promenade is grouped around a Federalist-style post office adorned with a mechanical eagle that has flapped its wings every hour on the hour since 1941.The Ward Melville Heritage Organization oversees the Stony Brook Grist Mill, which was built in 1751 and gives a glimpse into the town's history.
