Humphreys Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We hadn't made plans for Christmas day and called Humphrey's to inquire about brunch asking if it was ala carte or a prix fixe and were told the former. We made reservations just in case and headed over glad to be able to get in. We were seated and told that it was actually prix fixe and something like $69/person. When we told the hostess she essentially implied "tough luck" the person didn't know what they were talking about. We acquiesced and decided to make the most of it. The buffet had an impressive variety but the food was just mediocre especially for the price. The buffet staff seemed to have been treated poorly so they were stressed out. Our waiters were stellar at our table though. The turkey on the carving station was pink and the seafood table reeked so we avoided it altogether. I might try this place for ala carte dinner or lunch but never a buffet again.
It was a festive night. Great place to dine with a group or on a date. The food was perfect. My friend had the steak and loved the sauce and flavors. I had the Salmon, it was perfect. We shared the truffle Mac n Cheese. The server recommended a perfect Chardonnay.
After dinner we went next door where a great band played. Dancing and fun was had by all.
We had dinner at Humphreys because my Mother and Sister were visiting San Diego, and we wanted to take them to a very nice place. The seating next to the windows provided a great view of the Marina, the ambiance was high class and it was quiet enough for a nice conversation. The food was great and the service was incredible, though drinks are expensive and there are no Entrées under $28. This is a great place for special occasions or to impress someone. The Backstage next door is fun with no cover if you have dinner and or are staying at the Hotel. All in all, a good experience.
I have been to Humphrey's on Shelter Island twice in two weeks with a friend for dinner. We both had the macadamia crusted Halibut. It is expensive, but so delicious that we both decided we need to come back once a month to have it. I am not a big fish eater but this is such a flavorful white fish with the crunch of the macadamia nuts that I just can't resist. I have also been to Humohrey's many times for lunch and the lobster roll is full of lobster and very flavorful. The dining room is bright, clean and has a view of the boats docked behind the restaurant. The wait staff are attentive and parking is free and plentiful.
A few of my friends and I came in for a concert at the arena and was under the recommendation of my friend to try this wonderful place. The ambiance, seat right to overlook the entire yacht lift of San Diego was do die for. I has the shrimp and grits, which was an appetizer, which I had for dinner instead. It was DELISH. We were very impressed.
I make it my business to get to Humphrey's as often as possible for their reputable "unlimited champagne brunch" on Sundays. Their service from the hostesses who seat you, to the waiters or waitresses who cater to your every need throughout your meal is impressive. During each trip I try to enjoy one of the many concerts offered throughout the year. I will continue to support this wonderful establishment for years to come.
