Steak & Shrimp
Marinated Skirt Steak & Ale Battered Shrimp
Two Pound Maine Lobster
I had the halibut and South African Twin lobster tails... Both were amazing.
Celebration of our 42nd anniversary
Great food and delicious wine to pair. The crab cakes were amazing, and we did a surf/turf salmon and steak. All very good. Outdoor seating was nice with heated lamps and appetizers were very generous portions. Topped it off with a great apple crumb dessert.
We felt very comfortable in the outdoor dining area. Both service & food were excellent.
Wonderful, as always.
When dining out, I always think first of the Nautilus.
I'm glad I discovered the Nautilus years ago.
How satisfying it is to be there every week.
I look forward to a visit every week.
Great job, Brian.

Thank You God Bless coke zero is restocked! brian
With their weekly it’s always the same excellent food great fresh seafood and they’re always very nice they know us
Beautiful spot outdoors. Food was great. Terrific service.
The best lobster anywhere . take it from some one who has eaten lobster for over68 years.
Loved the meal and ambiance!
It was my first time at Nautilus Cafe and it will not be my last; delicious food and great service!
Food and service were awesome...
Very nice. Service was on point and the food was excellent
Food was very good, we got the cod special and the fish and chips. Only negative part of our experience was the wait time was very long but understandable in the pandemic they may have less staff. Plenty of seating outdoors and they were able to seat us earlier than our reservation on a Friday night.
The food was delicious! The service was at the right pace, helpful and polite. The outdoor seating was well set up for what is needed these days. Thank you!
Food was amazing as was the service. We sat outside and it was so nice under a tent and set out perfect for social distancing. I would highly recommend!
We celebrated mom’s 83rd birthday. We had the perfect table by the window. Our reservation was during the early bird special so we got everything, coffee and dessert included, for the price if the entree. Lauren our server was fantastic. She had lots of help with additional servers who kept our water glasses full and the finished plates cleared. Dinner was, as usual, exceptional. From the lobster bisque to the Caesar salad, the macadamia encrusted bronzini to the broiled seafood platter, everything was outstanding. This is my mom’s favorite restaurant and has been for decades! And the Nautilus Cafe never disappoints!
Food and service is consistently great!.
A favorite for many years. Prices are beginning to destroy “value for the money “. A potato or vegetable should be part of the entre. $5.00+ for a baked potato is out of line! Charge $2 more and Include the item. Finally, the quality of the steaks have dropped a level. Used to look forward to Steak Night every few months. Now, it’s no longer an attraction for us. All in all you are slipping. Take a look at West End Cafe in Carle Place and compare Value and Quality. Do not take your success for granted! Please!
Always a great experience.
From start to finish, it's a most enjoyable time.
I look forward to each visit.

ALWAYS a terrific night out. Consistently excellent food and impeccable service. We always feel well taken care of at Nautilus!
Arrived early for your special of king crab & prime rib. I received 2 VERY THIN claws with very little crab in them. Since being so early I expected 2 pieces from the middle as advertised in your photo. Needless to say I was disappointed.
My son had the 2 lb lobster & my husband a fish platter. They were both satisfied.
Nautilus is one of my favorite restaurants and we visit as often as we can. Please try and serve what you advertise.
Ordered the Bronzino. Superb dish. Excellently prepared. Fish portion was noticeably smaller than usual. Disappointed and hope this was an exception. If it continues, I will rethink visiting Nautilus Cafe.
Service and food was good. Nice setting and atmosphere.
Fabulous prime rib special. Great, helpful waitress. Will definitely go back!
Max, our waiter was great. Food was very good. Very good overall.
We are frequent visitors during Restaurant Week. In fact, we went twice during the January- February period period, because Nautilus extended it by almost a week. Food is fantastic and the price is so affordable. And the restaurant is beautiful. Can't wait for our next visit.
Outstanding service from the minute you walk in. Everyone there was very attentive and was very interactive with the guests. Servers made you feel like they knew you from when you were born. Food was exceptional. Will definitely be returning!
The food was way better than I anticipated and we really enjoyed the ambiance and great service. We don’t live too close but we will definitely be back as it was worth the trip!
Debbie our waitress was the best. Great 1st time experience . Food was delicious
food is consistently good. service is always very good. value is very good
Customer service by the waitress was excellent . Very attentive to the customers.
Went to dinner with my decades long friends and their wives. Each one of us felt the same way. The food was cooked to perfection. The waiting staff was knowledgeable, patient and friendly. Whenever they are back in the area it will be our restaurant of choice. Fortunately my wife and I live in the area and we will be frequent diners at the Nautilus Café. On an ending note, I am a bronzini lover and I can unquestionably say, it was the best bronzini I have ever had.
Tables are a little close but we were there early so it didn't matter. The food was delicious - a prime spot for seafood of all types
We have made two visits to the Nautilus Cafe during the past month. On both occasions we were impressed by both the quality of food and service. The Nautical Mile of Freeport is clearly in transition and the big named classics such as the Schooner are gone. The Nautilus Cafe is reminiscent of the golden age of Freeport’s Nautical Mile. Try it and you’ll love it.
Excellent food. Friendly service. Nice location, especially in summer.
Not many people in the place, service was good, food was slow to come out but was excellent tasting when it did. Had to ask server for something and she wasn't around when needed. Very over priced for this time of year.
Dishes prepared perfectly. Excellent quality seafood.
