Great food. Friendly and helpful staff. We love coming here and do come often.,
in our opinion this is one of the best retaurants on LI
we have been many times
THis time I had Halibut with lobsterpieces an sause =superb-best version of halibut I hav ever had
my wifeand sole and it was great
desert was a moose cake very good
we have had staek, roast beef and lobster all great
I go every year for my birthday for the lobster. It got very expensive this year.
There was a table next to us with a 2 year old that would not stop screaming. This family was either related or very good friends with the staff as they did nothing about the screaming or the extremely loud videos the child was watching on the mothers phone.
Another group actually moved their table because of the child.
The management should pay attention to the paying customers to make sure everyone is comfortable.
Do not know if I will return to this restaurant again.
Food was terrific. Noisy because it is not a large place and it was crowded. Server could have been more attentive.
The food is always great and the choices were excellent
Been to Nautilus many times. We meet our friends for lunch every few months, and this is our meeting place
Brian, the waiter is always friendly and courteous.
Had the prix fixed menu. We each got different dishes and all were delicious. My DH and I had fried oysters, my gf had caprese salad and her DH had the crab and asparagus soup. My DH had prime rib, my g f had the banking, and my friends husband and I had tuna. All were very tasty. Portions are a decent size and potatoes and broccoli are served family style
Dessert, wine and coffee were good too
Can’t wait to return after the new year
Great seafood. really knows how to prepare fish. Had the local Bay Scallops, died and went to heaven.
Can't wait to go back.
My husband and I decided to visit Freeport for the Electric Boat Parade and were looking for a place to dine. The Nautilus was on Trip Advisor’s Top Ten Restaurants in Freeport, so we made reservations on this past Saturday night prior to the boat parade. We arrived early and waited at the bar to have a table with a view of the boats and Woodcleft Canal. Chuck, the bar tender, was personable and friendly. Once seated we were pleasantly informed that we could get the Early Bird Dinner which was salad or soup, a side dish and dessert and coffee included with any entree. My husband and I both ordered from their specials and were delighted with our choices. I had the Peconic Bay scallops and my husband had haddock with shrimp and clams. Our waitress was also personable and friendly. We were very pleased with every aspect of our dining experience and will definitely return.
It was our first time there. Good food, good service, good pricing. Everything was enjoyable. The Hostess has a good sense of humor. We will be back.
The service at the Nautilus Cafe was impeccable and the food was outstanding. They have a small menu, which I find usually means higher quality, fresher food and I was not disappointed. They had several specials, all of which sounded delicious (4 of the 5 in our party ordered the specials). The fried shrimp were U15, the largest shrimp I have ever seen, and cooked to perfection--crispy coating and moist, tender shrimp. The mahi mahi was a generous portion and cooked perfectly. The vegetable (broccoli) was served family style. The desserts were exceptional.
We ate at an off hour, so we were eligible for the early bird special which included soup or salad and coffee and dessert. I would wholeheartedly recommend the Nautilus Cafe and cannot wait until I return.
Terrific meal as usual.
Wonderful friendly staff
We love coming to this restaurant
Not at this café never disappoints. We came in for a three
course restaurant week special and made a reservation for Thanksgiving weekend as well. The service is attentive without being intrusive the food is absolutely fresh and delicious always.
Overall a good restaurant but the entrees were small and not a great value.
Great food. Best prime rib ever! Excellent service. Will definitely go back.
We love this place!
Not only is the food great- the staff is amazing!
Recommend this to everyone!
Never disappointed another great meal! Just wish it was a little larger .
I never realized there was a local restaurant with such fabulous food. I will return.
It was amazing
They take reservations online. Very convenient. Waiter service was excellent.
I think the food was excellent but expensive for lunch $28 for the special swordfish & my wife had crab cakes too small & coconut shrimp for $22.
Great seafood .... not the cheapest ..... early bird special great value
I've been coming here for about 40 years and this time I must say it was disappointing. Their Prime Rib--I order it rare--is usually superb, better than anyone else's. The consistency of the meat was a little "mushy" and it was dry, not succulent. Perhaps because it was Wednesday when they shave the price and serve it without the bone. I usually eat there on non-Wednesdays and order it with the bone. The usual drawbacks of Nautilus I can tolerate; e,g., the tables are too close to each other and it's always noisy. Brian muffed the opportunity, when he rebuilt after the storm, to improve the acoustics and re-arrange the space for more dining comfort.
Food delicious, service impeccable
Great food, great service, great ambiance.
A pleasure every time!
Another fantastic meal. The nautilus never disappoints. One of the best seafood restaurants on LI def the best in south shore. Staff is friendly and pleasant. The halibut is the best around! Congrats Nautilus, our favorite place!!
Spot on👍 Ambiance, service and, best of all, food make it a place to head for. Love the price fixe lunch!
Just simple great seafood always fresh we go there Often it’s always guaranteed to be a good meal
Nautilus has become one of our go-to places. The menu is varied but not overbearing; food and service are consistently great.
Good food, good service. Very cozy atmosphere. No complaints.
Small inteiment atmosphere. Good presentaion and food quality. Attentive service.
Very nice restaurant. Terrific food. Good service. A little pricey.
My friends and I eat here often, mostly for dinner. There is a small selection of wine by the glass, but they are all delicious and well priced. This time, we had the Restaurant Week menu - 3 dinner courses for $29.95. A superb value - crab and asparagus bisque was smooth and creamy, the short ribs mouthwateringly tender. desserts wonderful. The service was well paced and the meal quite leisurely in spite of the crowd.
We had a nice meal at the Nautilus Café last Saturday night. The food was good, but it didn't wow me. I think my expectations may have been too high after reading the reviews. I had the lobster and my husband the strip steak. My husband's steak was tasty but a little tough. We ordered the fries and onion string combo which was under cooked and not very crisp. The leftovers that we brought home were much better the next night when we crisped them up in the toaster oven.
Delicious specials but very pricey. Early bird specials are awesome!
Nautilus Cafe never disappoints. I had the 3 course lunch prix fix (23.95). Manhattan clam chowder, Huge lobster Cobb salad and cheesecake for dessert. I took the cheesecake home because I was so full from the Cobb salad. The service is excellent; Attentive without being intrusive.
Dining at the Nautilus Café is a great week-ender, a chance to relax in pleasant surroundings, enjoy good food and outstanding service.
I try to get to the Nautilus weekly. If I miss somehow, the week seems incomplete.
We have been dining at the Nautilus Cafe for over 30 years.
Not once, I emphasize, not once in that time have we been disappointed or unsatisfied with the food.
The seafood is exceptional - the very freshest and of the highest quality.
The entire waitstaff is always accommodating, but I would be remiss if I didn't give an extra special mention to Deborah.
She is truly the GEM of the Nautilus Cafe.
With her pleasant personality, ready smile, exceptional menu knowledge and professionalism, she is always a delight to see.
