The Cooperage Inn takes great pride in serving the freshest fish, meats and local produce available. Sauces are expertly prepared on premise by our chefs.



The name "Cooperage Inn" comes from the craft of coopering, which goes back a few centuries, when it was the major method of packaging. We are located in the Long Island Wine region. Wine makers have always relied on the skills of the Village Cooper to store and age their wines.

Eggplant fries were excellent broiled seafood platter was very good however marinated cowboy steak was very tough and not worth $39. They do not offer free refill on soda so I had two sodas that cost $6 plus they charge you 3.5% if you use a credit card which most restaurants don't do either. Been coming here 15 years kind of a turn off

Short rib pot pie (special) was a huge disappointment. Did not have any short ribs, basically it was a vegetable pot pie. My husband's short rib pot pie did have meat, so he shared with me. When we told the waitress and host, all they could do was say "we will tell the chef" and "sorry". We have been consistent customers and I feel there should have been some kind of reduction in price, or at least offer a drink or dessert, to show customer appreciation and desire for us to come back.

Hi There! I'm so sorry to hear about your experience with the short rib pot pies. We are still working on the recipe, as they are a new item. We've had great feedback so far. What this does tell us, is that the meat needs to be pulled and evenly distributed earlier in the process. I do apologize for your meal. Please contact me at 631.727.8994, I'd like to have the chance at a re-do. Thanks! Scott Hopkins, Manager, Cooperage Inn.

Every year I take my nieces to Manhattan for a play and dinner. This year with COVID-19 we could not do that. My second choice was the Cooperage inn and everybody loved it. It’s my favorite place to go. Food is always delicious. The staff is always friendly. See you in two weeks for Thanksgiving

I typically don't write reviews, but my experience at the Cooperage Inn was exceptionally poor so I felt I needed to warn other. First, we were sat by a big party that was loud and annoying. Our waitress and service was terrible from start to finish. She knew nothing about gluten free options. We ordered drinks and then she never came back to tell us they were out of 2 different wines we picked until almost an hour later. Never asked if we wanted refills. I was told a dish could be make without garlic, then 20 minutes later told it couldn't. I reordered the filet mignon nd told I could have jasmine rice because their rice pilaf had gluten? Weird but okay. After waiting what seemed like forever, our dinners arrived and mine came with just my filet and a veggie and no rice. They then told me that the jasmine rice was full of garlic. What? I have never seen jasmine rice with tons of garlic. It seems the chef here only knows how to cook with garlic and no other spices, so if you can't eat garlic DO NOT EAT HERE! I was very hungry after a day of wine tasting and was looking forward to my birthday dinner here. I started to eat and the steamed veggies were just that...steamed and bland. No butter, so salt, no olive oil, no taste. My filet mignon was like a burnt hockey puck! I have had plenty of filets that are delicious with just some salt, and when cooked well, are so tender. They tried to tell me it was charred..but it was completely burnt on the outside and not medium rare on the inside. It had absolutely no flavor or seasoning at all! It was so inedible I had to send it back and go home hungry. They took the entree off the bill but didn't apologize or offer me anything else. My husband's ribeye was also tough, chewy and tasteless. For $40 what a rip off! To top it off I had put that it was my birthday when booking the reservation and no one even said happy birthday or acknowledged the special occasion. What a sour end to a lovely day. I will NEVER go back again.

This was the perfect place to celebrate our friend’s birthday. The atmosphere was perfect - beautiful, quaint rooms decorated in a homey atmosphere. We all had the flank steak which was cooked perfectly to each of our requests. The pumpkin beer was delightful and the wine list satisfactory. We each left with a highly recommended frozen chicken pot pie. Overall, we had an exceptional dining experience!!

Went to Cooperage Inn during the week for an early dinner. Have been there numerous times before. It is always a welcoming atmosphere. The wait staff are always pleasant. They know the answers to questions about the menu. The food has always been delicious. The portion sizes are big and satisfying.

We made reservation for outside sitting but when we came it was pretty chilly outside and even though they had a couple of overhead heaters they didn't give out much. I asked to move us inside and the host did it with no issues. The tables were spaced pretty far one from each other so we felt pretty good about social distancing.
The food is very good. Fluke is amazing. The special desert apple pie was not only excellent but very big too so it was enough to share for all four of us. This was our second time this year and we will definitely visit next year.

Always a warm welcome and ambience. Even with the crisis it’s a safe and familiar place. The food is consistently good as are the portions.
The staff however is not engaging or friendly. They are just servers and act as if they can’t wait for the shift to end.
We offer this as a constructive opinion and not criticizing. We and our family think of you as our cozy place
when we decide to eat out

This was a superb experience that exceeded expectations. My family was a party of four and all of us received ample portions. The food was outstanding. We had a gift card in the amount of $100.00 - the bill came to $121.00. I should say that none of us ordered any alcoholic beverages nor did we order dessert. I still feel that the pricing was very reasonable considering we did order appetizers and four entrees. Looking forward to a future visit.

Great place in rhe area, probably the best restaurant . Delicious food. The chicken pot pie is definitely a must. Good fish. Good meat and desserts.
Only issue we had the waitress told us the catch of the day was Striped Bass. They brought us swordfish but did not say anything. When we mentioned that to her, she said she was wrong. No apology, I bet she did not even tell her manager.!

We love the Cooperage Inn and were thrilled when they were finally open for inside dining after the Covid 19 shut down. We worried that they might cut corners to offset any losses, but it's the same wonderful dining experience it's always been. Food was delicious and plentiful and the staff were super friendly and helpful as always. One thing to note, if you pay with a credit card you will have a small service charge added to your bill (they refer to it as you get a discount if you pay cash). It wasn't a big deal to us, but the first time it was a surprise so I thought I'd mention it. They do have an ATM in the lobby, should you need one.

Took my mom for her birthday she got short ribs I think it was more like brisket than short ribs she said it was OK.The stuffed clams and shrimp were tasty, but I did find that what you got for the money we paid I’m not going back anytime soon. Our waitress was wonderful And more than happy to do a little birthday dessert for my mom as well. the hostess was very nice also.
