Always a Great Experience
A group of family has a lunch every May at the Nautilus. The food, service, and scenic view of the ocean makes this our annual favorite!

The food was excellent as always our waitress was fantastic! Love The Nautalis! It's such a nice environment all around to have a great dinner with some great food at great prices.

1st wedding anniversary
Celebrated our first wedding anniversary here. Food was great. Had the fish in a almond crust and my wife had the stuffed shrimp. we both give it two thumbs up. The service was great thanks to Carlos and the hostess. the atmosphere was very nice the the only thing that through me off was the fact that 80 to 90 percent of the patrons seemed to be over 50. My wife and I are both 30. Other than that everything was great. I recommend it!

Top notch seafood restaurant on Freeport's Nautical mile. Professional staff, full bar, tables are covered with tablecloths making it a more formal atmosphere.

Delicious fish and salads. Great to dine at the dock. We felt like we were on vacation. This is a great place, and we had a wonderful experience. We'll certainly be back.

Soft Shell Crabs
The Crabs are in and served Saute style were delicious.
Extra bonus is the Early Bird Special
Nautilus is a consistently good place for lunch/dinner

Best of Freeport
By far the best on the nautical mile, always fresh, never frozen fish , prepared with care and class. We travel 40 minutes to eat here, the Monday and weds. Special nights are outstanding. Carlos is the bet waiter ever!

I have been to the Nautilus many times and have never been disappointed. The preparation is always exceptional along with very attentive service. I have never eaten in a better fish restaurant.

A GOOD SOLID RESTAURANT
AS usual we had a good meal with attentive service.

Not for a young crowd
The food is pretty good, but I ordered the Halibut special that was slightly overcooked and a bit dry. The tables were super tight and as two couples in our 30's we were BY FAR the youngest guests there. For the food, atmosphere and being a restaurant not on the water in the nautical mile, it was highly overpriced.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
I haven't been to Nautilus in at least 8 years, but it's just as good as I remember. I went on a monday night with the lobster 2 for 1 special and it was HIGHLY worth it. The lobster was delicious. I also had the macadamia crusted tilapia and that was also quite tasty.
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Brought my son here for the 2 pound lobster. It is always tender and delicious.
The fish is always fresh and the soups and salads are great. There is always a good assortment of vegetables and we particularly loved the butternut squash, broccoli in garlic and oil and cauliflower. You can also bring your own bottle of wine and they will open it and put it on ice for you. Reservations are recommended.

Slightly older crowd
We really enjoyed our dinner at Nautilus Cafe. Read other reviews and wanted to try one of the restaurants on Freeport's Nautical Mile for a birthday dinner. Nautilus Cafe had the best reviews, by far. We did read that the crowd was primarily 50+ and it was, but that didn't bother us. We are in our early 40s.
Putting that aside, the food was excellent and the service was very good. Parking is a challenge of course, but that's to be expected on the Nautical Mile. There is a small valet lot but we took our chances and found a spot around the corner.
Shrimp Oreganata and Surf and Turf were very good! Will be back.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went to the restaurant when I first walked in it was smaller then what it looked online and I thought
Oh great but from the minute we walked in we were greeted by a very nice lady and then waited at the bar
For a few minutes and the bartender there was spot on knew how to make drinks was pleasant and attentive
Then when we sat down to eat the waiter we had was not only nice but had a personality and last but not least
The food was excellent I enjoyed my stuffed shrimp and my friend and hubby had a porterhouse for two and it was good too
Overall excellent night with friends and food
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was awesome, as was the service! Highly recommended. We will be back soon

If you are looking for a fabulous deal on a Wednesday night LOOK NO FURTHER !!! You can't beat the price or the quality of the Prime Rib . Juicy,tasty and plentiful. The veal chop was also a winner . Soft tasty and done exactly as requested. The dinner included a free martini and the price was only 29.95. I can't think of anyplace on Long Island that offers a better deal than that.

We've been to Nautilus several times now. Great salads, superb fish, delicious desserts. The wait staff and bus staff are extremely attentive and polite. Right there on the dock. Good prices, can't be beat.

Food was excellent. This was not our first time dining there. We took our kids and one of our grandchildren. He is 10 mths old and needed a highchair. They were very accommodating. We ate at the early bird time because we had the baby. He was good and the service was wonderful. A good evening.

I have eaten at the Nautilus Cafe many times and took advantage of the Restaurant Week offer. The meal was excellent and the service was excellent as well but I have come to expect that at the Nautilus Cafe.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely little restaurant. Great atmosphere. It's small, but I didn't mind. Service was great, staff was very friendly. Excellent food, I enjoyed it very much. Would definitely come back.

Love it here
Not our first time at this place. We were in the neighborhood on business and went for another fabulous dinner! Had a dish not on the menu recommended by our waiter. Halibut was so so so delicious with a lobster topping. Loved it! Started with soup and salad and ended with a really great chocolate cake and coffee. Great meal with friends. Restaurant is pretty and clean with views from every table. Waiter was nice but that was it. Not efficient at all. He took a long time to walk over for drinks. Then didn't come back for ever for us to order. Then brought out 3 things wrong with our main. I asked for no onions on salad there were onions! Coffee came but no desserts. No coffee refill!

The Nautilus Cafe is one of my most favorite restaurants. It is always consistent with their food and service. Whenever I think of wanting to go out for seafood there is no other restaurant I would prefer. Keep up the great job.

Nice Night Out
Dinner was very good as usual. We really enjoyed seeing Carlos, the service he provides is impeccable. He and the staff remembered us from a few years ago when we use to attend regularly. We decided to spend our first night out with out the kids in 7 years here- that should say enough. Can't wait to return hopefully we will not have to wait that long again.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delightful and Delicious
Glad we gave this another chance. Last experience had us doubting we might be back. The food was great but the service was lousy. This trip was a wonderful experience. Ramon, our waiter, was attentive and pleasant. The food was delicious and as always plentiful.

Our Prime Ribs of Beef (we both ordered the same) were cooked perfectly, served promptly and were delicious.
We highly recommend the Wednesday Night "Steak Night". It's a best bet in Nassau County each week!

We return here often. We love everything about it. Everything is beautifully prepared. The owner / chef has been cooking up delicious fish for 20 years. They have a special steak night during the week, which is wonderful. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Regular customer here for more years than I remember. The fish is fresh (I had the branzini), well seasoned, tasty, yummy. Portion sizes are just the right size. No one ever feels rushed. Dishes are not taken off the table if someone else is still eating. Service is friendly and warm. In the summer, the view here is spectacular as it's in the harbor. Small and intimate. Reservations a must and they accomodate you and don't keep you waiting. Service people remember you and special orders are not a problem. One of the best seafood restaurants on Long Island.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Best lobster on Long Island
Monday night lobster night, best deal in town. Also first of season peconic bay scallops unbelievable. The only restaurant on nautical mile that knows about food and service.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
went during the week. crowded for a thursday. food great. prepared just as i asked. relish
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Service was great, very attentive wait staff. The food was delicious.
Would have liked to have a potato or vegetable come with the main course.
Think $6.75 for a potato is quite expensive.
Spacing of the tables is bad. I had to get up 2 times during my meal to let other diners out of the restaurant.
