    You are not going to find a nicer place with nice bay front views. The service was above average. The food was adequate nothing amazing besides the bacon, which was cooked to perfection. The bloody Mary was very good and above average with the flavor. The drinks held a high price point.

    We have visited Shelter Island frequently over the years and were surprised to realize we’ve never dined at Humphrey’s! Our only regret about our experience the other night is that we didn’t do it sooner. Delicious food, beautiful ambiance, stellar service. We will definitely be back.

    $100 per person for easter brunch. No oysters, no crab, no shrimp. Just a carving and omelette station and various chafing dishes and salads with all the normal brunch foods. Very disappointing for easter, especially at that price

    For the $95 a plate, the quality and taste of the food was not very interesting. For example, the Ham and Lamb was dry and lacked flavor. They looked great, but left the palate missing flavor.

    Service was excellent as usual. Food selection a little light for the $95 price each plus drinks and tip and the omelet guy was ridiculously slow. But the most disappointing was a $10 charge that no one could really explain but basically it was me paying for the pleasure of being a customer. Dine here most holidays and the location and service again is always excellent but selection has been declining as stated previously.

    We are a local family and love Humphrey's for family celebrations. We enjoyed the Easter brunch recently and want to call out the fantastic service from the manager and hostess at check-in to our waiter and the support staff taking care of our table and keeping our water glasses full throughout our meal. Thank you! The only slight negative is the price - it's steep, and we missed the shrimp/crab on ice from buffets of the past. But the carving table was excellent, and the desserts were fantastic. The bread pudding is TO DIE FOR. Thanks to the entire team for making this a lovely family event.

    On a Friday night, and the place was not busy, which I consider a good thing. The staff was fairly patient since we were talkative and didn’t order right away. A bit passive aggressive though as the staff hit one of us in the head with a plate accidentally/not accidentally! And the food was very very good. We had ribs, which were excellent, scallops, which were very good, halibut, which was excellent, and Ciopinni which was reportedly very good as well.

    The restaurant is quiet, the lighting great, the colors subdued. The temperature was very pleasant. We were lucky enough to get seated by a window. The view was great and the seating was very comfortable. Our waitress, Jolene, was pleasant and efficient and her staff was on the ball. Our food was very good. Overall, it was a wonderful evening.

    In the Lounge, the manzanita blues band was terrific, drinks, and service one too. In the restaurant the mussels and crab cake as starters were delicious as was the short ribs as a main course, and chocolate cake for dessert. Service was attentive.

    Erika was great. The kitchen was running behind and it didn’t let it faze her level of service. We waited on a truffle Mac & cheese for 20 minutes while our food got cold. My boyfriend asked for a refire of his steak and she brought a new one out with no hesitation. Comped a round of drinks for the trouble. Everyone else’s candle was lit on the table except ours. Not a big deal, just something I noticed. Truffle Mac and cheese was disappointing. It looked like someone just opened a microwavable pack and put it in a bowl. Very underwhelming.

    We sat next to the window which was pretty incredible and made for a picture perfect sunset. The food was pretty good but our server was scatter brained. We were one of the first to be seated since we got there when it opened at 5. We had the Valentine's special (prime rib and lobster) which should have come out fairly quick but we didn't get our meal till well after an hour after we ordered. Our server assured us that it was coming but we think she actually forgot to place the order. We watched meal after meal come out and people eat and leave that came in 45+ minutes after we sat down. I would go back but just to check out a show. There are a lot of places to eat around San Diego that have the same if not better food for cheaper prices.

    Nice place overall as far as location, views and maybe music. Food on the hand was very average at best and for an expensive restaurant dinner date it just doesn’t cut it. Service was good but please accept this as constructive criticism and really hope that if I were to ever return here the food it a lot better. As of a couple of days ago I would recommend this place for drinks and music but for now not for the food.

    The restaurant had no music playing, service was ok, but overall the food wasn't worth the price. The flavors in both dishes were way too rich and the scallops were chewy. Was pretty bummed since I had high hopes. Would stay at the hotel again and the bar is great but the restaurant is overrated.

    Our server, Jolene, was outstanding, and provided us with an excellent experience. A couple of items on the food were lacking...The nut-encrusted halibut was lacking in seasoning, and the chocolate cake was a little dry and the chocolate leaf on it was so hard it couldn't be cut with a knife! The salmon was excellent as was the accompanying rice, the calamari was served with a spicy/hot dip sauce that I enjoyed, but my dinner companions thought was a bit too spicy, and the clam chowder was good.

    I did not enjoy the Christmas brunch 2023. The typically amazing experience became less than amazing when the restaurant hostess seated us in a plain, less festive and half empty temporary overflow room with not enough staff; for the same price as the seating in the main beautiful and fully staffed restaurant.

    Buffet was terrible. Food was cold, overcooked, fruit spoiled. I cannot believe we paid over $100 a person for such terrible food + the surcharge that was added but not told to us (thankfully we noticed before over tipping).
