Steak & Shrimp
Marinated Skirt Steak & Ale Battered Shrimp
There were so many specials that the waitress really needed to print another menu.
The problem is that after listening to all of the specials I forgot to ask the prices.
When I received the check the special I ordered was $39.95 which was $15.00 more than it was worth.
It will be a long time before I venture forth to the Nautilus Cafe.
As always, our meal was wonderful. This is our "go to" restaurant on Nautical Mile. The seafood is so fresh and the preparation is always superb. The wait staff is so attentive. In these times where it is difficult to get good help Nautilus seems to have been able to keep their pre-pandemic staff. They always had wonderful service and that has not changed. They offer a wonderful Prix-Fix luncheon menu with some really nice choices. An appetizer, entree and dessert for $27.95. You can't even get a meal at the diner for that price these days! My wife had the baked clams that she said were absolutely delicious. She had the shrimp oreganata which were huge, seasoned perfectly and also delicious. I had the lobster bisque and the soft shell crab with pignoli nut special. I would highly recommend both. If you are craving fresh seafood deliciously prepared in a pleasant atmosphere, this is the place. You will not regret it.
My new favorite restaurant on Long Island. Absolutely delicious, fresh fish, excellent quality — beautifully prepared and presented. Friendly service and an atmosphere that is the perfect combination of classy, yet relaxed. I’ll definitely be back!
Excellent service food atmosphere
The hostess and wait staff were very courteous. They all joined in wishing us Happy Anniversary with complimentary cheesecake for 2. We enjoyed our meals and had a nice experience. We will definitely go back.
Great food and service. Although pricy, the food quality and portion justified it. The staff was helpful and courteous. We will definitely be back.
Nothing special and the food is extremely overpriced; you can easily have a meal at upscale restaurants for the same bill.
The food and service were amazing! The halibut special was outstanding as was our waitress, Laura!
Very Good Food. Very Good Service.
Really well done!
Fabulous as always
Mellow atmosphere and a little fancy for intimate dining. Great wine!
Excellent service food snd atmosphere
My favorite seafood restaurant. Excellent selection of fish including specials. Love all the vegetable side dishes. If you love Halibut don't miss this selection, it is awesome.
Great food and service
e all chose from the lunch prixe fix menu. Choices were limited but interesting. We found the banana bread in the bread basket amusing, since that's usually associated with "home-cooked", but we did finish it all. My lobster bisque could have been a little thicker with more seafood. The seafood salad platter had a lot of variety and was finished with a nice vinaigrette. The shrimp scampi had large shrimp. Aside from a chattery group of women at the next table, it was an enjoyable meal.
Consistently excellent. Have been going here on a regular basis since I moved to Freeport and the Nautilus never disappoints.
The food was good. Our waiter, Ramon, was very nice & efficient.
Food and service was excellent. The kitchen was too slow and we waited too long for a main course
Every time we visit the Nautilus Cafe it is a pleasant experience. Food is always fresh and nicely prepared. A little pricey but it is our favorite restaurant on the nautical mile.
The baked chopped clams seemed flavorless as did the maple glazed salmon. The top layer of the salmon was nice and crispy, sweet maple flavor but the thick, meaty center was bland. The crispy broccoli was boring and bland.
Excellent service and excellent food. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. Our table had an excellent view of the canal and the boats.
Ordered fries never got them prime rib was okay but not a the best cut of prime rib. Meh not impressed
Great food, great service
The service by Debra was outstanding and the food was excellent.
Nautilus NEVER disappoints. The service is outstanding. Table is cleared of finished dishes, water glasses are always full, special requests are always granted. And the food is CONSISTENTLY delicious. From the Caesar salad to the cod special to the broiled seafood platter to the bread basket to the coffee-always incredibly delicious. We love this place and it is one of four restaurants we make it a point to visit every time we are on Long Island! Thank you Nautilus for creating such an incredible dining experience!
Great first time and great service. Would definitely recommend and go back.
Nice meal, homemade in style. They could have paid more attention to their sides, broccoli was all stalk and undercooked, Asparagus was old and a little gray and over done. A little overpriced but I might return but order differently.
Always good, never a disappointing meal. Great service and a delicious Halibut Special.
Wow. Diner quality seafood at 4 star prices.
Bland fish specials , over cooked colorless broccoli side for $11.
$160 for 2 people / no cocktails .
Always went to the Nautilus when we lived in New York our back visiting our kids and look forward to having this adventure again Brian always does a great job
The portion size for the price was small. It was not worth it.
Delicious food, peaceful setting. Not inexpensive.
The place was beautiful, however, I did not enjoy the food at all. There was no seasoning on the food and it was just bland. I hate wasting so much money on food I did not eat.
We celebrated my husband’s retirement here last night. As always, the Nautilus staff makes us feel like family. The food is delicious, the service gracious! Shout out to Laura for making us feel so welcome last night.
Promising, but needs some improvement. Valet parking was easy and efficient. We were seated at our table immediately. But the place is too crowded -- small room, but could be organized better (especially now with Covid restrictions lifting). The waitstaff was very friendly and helpful, although often distracted given how busy the place can be. The food was tasty and fresh -- high marks on that -- but a bit not he plain side. We shared a house salad and then had the seafood platter (sole, shrimp, scallops) and the salmon. Very fresh fish, but preparation is a bit unexciting. Like a steak house, you need to order sides separately -- creamed spinach was mediocre. The draft beer was excellent. And the final tab, while not crazy, was on par and high -- but the value seems good given the generally high quality of the food and drinks.
Great food and great service. We were welcomed at the door and from that point on the waiters were very attentive. We took advantage of outdoor dining on a gorgeous day and it was wonderful. Took advantage of the prefix menu and was very happy with our choice. The sea bass was excellent. My only note is that side dishes are a separate order and I think they should be included in the price.
Had a great dinner , had an amazing waiter Dominic , it was my wife’s Birthday and he was able to get her favorite dish, we will be back , if you have never been to this restaurant it’s a must. On
Great to be back! Staff and food great as usual!
Very good experience. Very good food and excellent service. Across from the water in Freeport.
Wish your menu wasn't a la carte and at least included a small side with the entree. Gets pricey for what it is, and although the food is quite good, isn't a quick "do-again" on a regular basis due to the pricing.
