I chose Shafers to celebrate my birthday! Since it fell on a Sunday, what better way to celebrate than Brunch! I had made the original reservation for 1pm but we were running late and I called to change it to 2 pm, no problem. When we got there it wasn't too crowded, which I like. The food was absolutely delicious! The service though, was very sketchy. There were a lot of young wait staff walking around and no one would ask us if we needed a drink. I was finally able to grab someone and asked for a mimosa and Iced tea. We were brought a mimosa and Bloody Mary. My boyfriend had to go to the bar. I noticed they had brought out some fresh corned beef and man in a chefs jacket offered to bring me a plate, which I
Accepted. Now, that's service

We went to Schafer's for brunch,
We went to Schafer's for brunch, and it was a nice experience. There was plenty of food, with the omelet and waffle stations, buffet with cheeses and fruit, lunch options and a variety of delicious desserts. The only problem we had was with the Bloody Mary... not great.

There are four separate rooms
There are four separate rooms to dine in. The staff was very accommodating. We opted to dine in the captains room which was quiet. Our waiter was very friendly and nice. We ordered the daily special which was delicious. The portion size was large and we had plenty leftover.

First time at Schafer's and will definitely be back. My family and I were at Schafer's for brunch recently and were greeted by a friendly hostess. Right away I knew we were to have a great dining experience. Brunch was excellent and the price was right on. Blood Mary's and Mimosa's were excellent too. Service was great and our waiter was very friendly. Next visit my wife and I will have to come for dinner. Thank you for a great dining experience.

Visited Schafers for lunch with a group of 15. Staff was very friendly and the lunch menu was great! So many great choices it was hard to pick one. The lobster mac and cheese and crabcakes were awesome! We also sat on the front deck with the windows open! It was a beautiful day and they have a great view! Would definitely eat here again!

Nice spot on the water
First time going to this place, recommended by my friend. Me and two friends went there for a Girls Night Out. Aside from how far away it is (Port Jeff quite a drive from Glen Head and Huntington!) we were happy with the restaurant, location, atmosphere, and food. We went on a Saturday evening around 8:30 PM and the dance floor and live band were hopping. The crowd appeared to be a bit older than I would have liked (40s maybe) but overall we enjoyed this place.

Friends and food
We had been to Schafer's for brunch and loved it so went back with friends for their Dueling Pianos on Friday night. We were stunned at the quality of entertainment. Those guys were great. Food, service, everything was perfect.

All around great place...
I love Port Jefferson and Schafers is one of the perfect places for every kind of diner. The bar area is perfect for any age group with lots of room. The ambiance inside is lovely and the outside dining is fun and relaxing. The food is beyond unbelievable for seafood and land lovers alike. The crab cake was one of the best I've ever had, braised short ribs were tender and so flavorful. The stuffed flounder and the steaks were too quality as well. I will absolutely be going back there again and again!

The food was delicious. Two of us had the chicken with risotto. They couldn't stop raving about it. I had the lobster roll. I really enjoyed it.

Schafers by far, has the best food in Port Jeff. Our party was celebrating a birthday, we mostly ordered specials, the Duck, amazing, and Double Cut Pork Chops, also amazing and cooked perfectly, not overdone with an delicious sauce...I myself ordered my fave, Chicken with Rissoto, the Chef here makes the best rissoto..,..another amazing time.

We dined during the Dickens
We dined during the Dickens festival so there was a lot going on and it was a bit noisy, but we expected that and were happy that so many of the "characters" came in! I'm sure on another evening it would be more subdued.

Food was good. I ordered a steak rare, they sent it med rare. The appetizer was great and my husbands order was very good. Other than the meat temperature issue, it was very good dining experience, service was great, drinks were good.
