Contemporary American
A casual, contemporary, coastal resort feeling matched with a menu that is inspired by local flavors. Our outdoor Beech Bar is perfect to meet a friend and grab a cocktail and a nibble. Enjoy one of our sofas by the fireplace and then move to the outside patio for dinner. You can also enjoy the relaxed, beachy feel of our main dining room accented by our gray- and white-striped floor. Inside or out, American Beech always seems to fit your mood.

I was very disappointed that a 2 year old child was seated with his parents in the main dining room. The child was not well behaved and the staff did not seem to take any notice. I will never go back there again and felt that the over 70 crowd was not welcomed. Don't forget, we are good tippers.

We love American Beech and make sure to have dinner here each and every time we visit Greenport, which is at least four or five times per year. Really cool ambiance, fun cocktail menu, and most importantly good food. The burger which was recently added to the menu (last year or two) has become one of our favorites and we love the duck wing appetizer. If you’re staying in Greenport I highly recommend this spot for pre dinner cocktails and then a sit down meal.

Everything we’ve had here is great — fried chicken, brussel sprouts, pork Milanese, burgers, squash latkes. Staff is very nice. Definitely get the brussel sprouts!

Ambiance is great. There is beautiful outdoor seating. They told us they have blankets, but when we asked for one it was never brought to us. Some of our meals were excellent, but the short ribs were a huge disappointment. It was more like a bowl of noodles. Hard to find any short ribs .

All appetizers must be prepared in advance. Every time we have been there, the appetizers come out within 5 minutes. Entrees come out extremely fast also. They want to turn over tables. TIP: Do not order entrée until you have finished your appetizer.

I fear American Beech has become almost too popular! It is a happening place, but lost some of it's charm. And is very loud.....

It was a great experience. I only have one complaint and it’s about the outdoor bartenders. Number one, they weren’t friendly. And number two, we ordered 4 cocktails and we were standing at the bar drinking our cocktails. And when we turned our backs for a few mins, they took our cocktails away! We all probably only had three sips! We then of course had to order new cocktails and when we got the bill, they charged us for the ones they took away!

Really loud spot that tries too hard to be Hamptons-esqe. Went there for dinner, but spent all of dinner listening to super loud music and dealing with drunk 45 year old men stumbling around. Also - two bathrooms for the whole place and bar - serving hundreds of people ... poor logistics. Won’t be going back.

Small menu - nothing unusual. Asked for my burger "medium", came out raw in the middle. Sick for two days afterwards. Noise was loud. Lots of noisy children under 4. Ordered food which came out before my wife came out of the bathroom (ten minutes?). Clearly the mid-day focus is on turnover - getting the most bang out of the tables they have, and perhaps the outside bar running up tabs. Pricey too. Built around attracting the 25-40 millennial crowd.

Bottom line: unless you are visiting from NYC, have young children, want quick service / overpriced simple fair, and don't mind dropping $$, don't go. There is lots of fine food elsewhere in Greenport. PS: return the burger if not cooked all the way through. I didn't, and I paid

My husband and I were looking for a place that was vegetarian friendly. We had been to American Beech before and I noticed in addition to their other vegetarian options that they added The Impossible Burger to their menu. We both ordered the Impossible Burger. For appetizer, he had the tuna crudo and I had the watermelon gazpacho. We had a very nice and delicious dinner and a great evening.

We ate at 5 PM on a Sunday evening. The outdoor bar is always energetic; we ate inside but the doors were open, so the noise level bothered some in our party. As locals we are used to it and don't even hear it but that was not the case for our visitors.

Could have easily rated food a five, if, honestly, the strip steak, while cooked exactly to my taste, was a bit tough and room temp when delivered. Staff was attentive and very accommodating, even to the pint of searches no put a decanter for the wine I brought in. Corking fee is a tad high compared to other local restaurants, but this birthday celebration warranted something special from my cellar.
Highly recommend.

We dined at American Beech last year and liked it enough to return with visiting family. Ambiance, location and bar were as nice as we remembered. Unfortunately, the waiter was barely polite, and the food was not nearly as good as we remembered (especially considering the prices). Would return for the bar, but probably not for dinner.

Eat at the bar, hopefully being served by Ryan, and order the Duck Wings to start your meal, not to mention a delicious cocktail. ;-)

The restaurant was sweltering with no functional ac. The noise level was toxic. The food was fair. The waiter didn’t come by once to see how we were doing - I couldn’t get his attention for a pepper shaker. The pasta was lacking flavor. The shrimp was fair. Would not recommend to anyone over age 30 - it’s a scene. Will not return.

We ordered when our drinks were delivered. Within two minutes, at most a sip or two of our drinks (really), the food arrived.

Our fish was pre cooked and lukewarm.

Mediocre, expensive and not an enjoyable experience.
