  • "Been there twice , older crowd , great music , and food is good , easy menu , nice little gem"
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "We went to the Patio for their Wednesday night Lobster Special. It was an all you can eat lobster bake that included Maine Lobster, Clams, Mussels and potatoes in a both. The lobster was overcooked, tough and chewy, and they were very chintzy with the lobster portions. In each serving all I received was half a tiny lobster tail and part of one claw. One time my lobster "portion" was an empty clew, that's it. The clams were fairly large but they too were tough and the mussels were huge. If you want to dine in a marina setting the view is great, but don't expect much from the food. Our waitress was very pleasant, but the hostesses were unfriendly and rude."

  • "We went specifically to see the band 45 RPM but decided to go early and have dinner. It was lobster bake night. I did the all you can eat. It was about 20 minutes between getting the orders and that was only after getting the waitresses attention. We actually canceled the last order because it took so long. The food was ok, a little on the cold side. Drinks are over priced. We would definitely go again if 45 RPM was there but we will be eating somewhere else first."

  • "I went to The Patio with some friends for my birthday. The view and overall look of the restaurant was great. I also really enjoyed the food. My biggest complaint was with the service. We barely saw our waitress all night, it took over an hour for us to get our food after ordering, and they charged us over 20% for gratuity on our bill for lousy service. In addition, the place was very empty for a Saturday night. The band stopped playing at 10 pm and by 1030, the place was empty. It's a shame that such a beautiful place has such lousy service and poor atmosphere."

  • "First visit of the season. Limited menu, okay food. Friendly servers but just okay service. Only 2 citronella candles on site for a buggy nite outdoors. Hope it was just an off evening but not in a rush to return."

  • "It might be Freeport but it sure isn't the Nautical Mile... The Patio is heads above anything else we've visited in southshore Nassau Great views and fun retro vibe. But the real standout is the food...Great shrimp tacos, lobster empanadas, and one of the best brick oven pizzas anywhere ! Its a little pricey but well worth it"

  • "We found that the food was excellent but the service could use a little polish. The great views and delish food made everything well worth it"

  • "Great place to bring your spouse or special lady. Food was very good and portions just right. Service was a little slow and server was not very knowledgeable with regards to "how" meals were prepared when asked. However, overall very enjoyable experience and would return. Make sure it's a sunny day to get the most out of it. "

  • "We were there for Mothers Day. We arrived at noon, and our entrees were it served until 2. In the meantime, there were mistakes with our apps, and when the entrees did come, they had not made one person's food, so she waited even longer. When we ordered dessert and coffee, first they forgot coffee, then we had to wait forilk, and we never got sugar. The wait staff was nice and apologetic, but it's no way to run a restaurant, especially for the price. The food was good, but nothing great. And when we asked for aim bread instead of corn muffins, they did not have any. It was a hot mess. "

  • "A little unassuming from the road but the space and view is beautiful and the food is killer. We loved the bbq duck and the coconut fish and chips. THe drinks were great and service friendly. We came on a friends recommendation and will be coming back"
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Same beautiful space...Great new menu...We came for a quick bite when visiting family last year and really enjoyed it. When we came back this year we were even more pleased. They added on more outdoor space and change the menu a little bit. Dont worry those amazing wood fired pizzas are still available. The service was warm and friendly but the real treat was the food. We will be back when the weather warms up a bit !"

  • "Great place to sit outside on the water and have a drink. Service was great. Food was good. A little overpriced for what it was. But would go back again."
    Dined on 8/31/2013
  • "Food was very good and the setting was relaxing and inviting, however the bill was ridiculous for what we received.this place is set away from the rest of the competition on Woodcleft Ave so I guess they can get away with it but everything on the menu was three to four dollars too much. Again. The food was really good and we enjoyed the meal , but we won't be back."
    Dined on 8/30/2013
  • "The menu is limited. No side dishes. The chef will not substitute veggies for mashed potatoes even though they have mashed potatoes for other entrees. They do have kid options. The menu online is not accurate. They only had 3 desserts. My daughter (8 yrs) had kid pasta with sauce and they gave a giant plate with next to no pasta on the plate. The food was good. I had shrimp taco appetizer for dinner because of limited entree options. It was very good. My so. Enjoyed their burger and my husband enjoyed their stuffed lobster bake. They had brick oven pizza which looked good. Ambiance is great."

  • "A neighborhood gem that has only outdoor seating. Food is adequate"
    Dined on 8/10/2013
  • "The restaurant was nice in that it was on the water, however, the menu was limited (no shrimp offered except peel and eat) which was surprising for a restaurant in the heart of the seaford district. The prices were very high and not warranted for this type of place. The food was OK but the portions were small. The wait staff was good, but it took 20 minutes for them to bring us bread as we were told they had to make the flat bread...you would think they would have been a bit more prepared and we should not have had to ask for it. If this place expects people to come in, they better reconsider their menu and prices... they are not worth the prices they are asking for. Nice but never again!"

  • "9 people, incl. a 2 & 7 yr old went for Monday lobster. All were leery upon entering the parking lot. The motel is old & all had concerns about the restaurant being as uninviting; however, once we walked into the restaurant, we were very pleasantly surprised! It is indeed a patio, complete with sofas, fishpond/waterfall, view of the marina, round fire pits, and large movie screen. Staff was great with the kids who had plenty of room to run around without bothering others, even coming up with some story books for the 2 year old. The all you can eat lobster kept coming and the stuffed 2 pounder was great. The sangria was especially delicious! We were there over 2 hours and enjoyed every minute. Will definitely go again. Highly recommend it."

  • "A big plus for the Patio is its short distance from all the traffic on the Nautical Mile and its adequate parking! Nice view if you like large boats. Food was fresh, with pizza. linguini/clam sauce and lobster roll rated very tasty, but skirt steak a bit chewy. Uninspired d-j added noise but not much music. No decaf coffee available?!? Drinks OK. If you want to eat outside in Freeport this is a place you may want to try."

  • "The food was good and it looks like it might be a fun place to hang out at on the weekends. Was a little surprised at the end of the meal to get the check with the tip included in it. She would have got a nice tip anyway."

  • "Restaurant was pricey for quality of food. Menu was limited, more options need to be added. My shrimp tacos were not the best. This restaurant could be so much more with better food. Are they trying to be a restaurant or a music hot spot??"
    Dined on 7/20/2013
  • "Great views of marina from a stylish patio with firepits and lounge seating. Food was simple, fun, and well executed. Service was a little green but friendly. Theres a great stage facing the marina but due to the weather the band didnt preform but we had a blast anyway. Well try again next week and hopefully the weather holds out !"
