We love going to the Linwood, always have craft cocktails and special menu choices. We were celebrating our anniversary and found this to be the best choice as we love the atmosphere here.

Amazing! Delicious food coupled with strong, original drinks keep us coming back for more. The staff is attentive and personable. It also doesn't hurt that the decor is my favorite color: turquoise. Ask to sit in the sunroom and make sure you get the chips and cheese sauce 😁

Beautiful place. Service was good. Cocktail drinks were delicious but were a little on the small side. We ordered from the pre fixed menu. Fried chicken was good but needed some sauce on the side. The slaw and grits were delicious. My friend ordered the salmon and it was delicious as well. Chicken liver mousse was good and arugula salad was delicious.

This is one of my go to restaurants in downtown Bayshore. The food is always fresh (the date appetizer is a must have), the wine and spirits are always perfectly chilled and the wait staff is superb. Not to mention the gorgeous decor. Maybe I should stop talking, I dont want it to be difficult to get a table next time 😉

Great atmosphere, food was delicious. Tried the Naan sampler, the octopus, and frito misto. Get extra bread and dip away. Had arugula salad with steak, excellent. Food was not fussy, but fresh and flavorful. The brussel sprouts were excellent too. My husband liked the fish special, fluke stuffed with crabmeat with fingerling potatoes. Would go back.

I am probably a "foodie" when it comes to restaurants. I had one of the BEST salads I have ever had at this restaurant. The appetizer was delicious too. My entree did leave something to be desired, but the chef and waitress were very accomodating. My friend's entree looked delicious. Worth a trip back for the salad and to try a different entree. Next time, will start with some yummy sounding cocktails!!

Food was incredible. Whatever cheese sauce they use for the chips, mac & cheese and grits was out of this world! 2 others got the Montauk fish special and didn't leave a single veggie on their plates. Frozen sangria was the icing on top. Will definitely be back!

I’ve been to Linwood a few times and it’s consistently excellent! The food and drinks and delicious, the ambiance is nice (never too loud), and the restaurant itself is beautifully decorated. I love that that the crowd is more sophisticated than other spots in the area. Highly recommend!

Great food. Thought the waitress should have “read the table” better and not made small talk as often as she did …. Or try to bring the conversation to her. Found everything else about the evening to be delightful

My family of four (two teenagers) had dinner at Linwood for my birthday. Our waitress was so friendly and attentive that we felt like we were her only table. The menu had a great selection and had enough for the more adventurous but a few stables (burger, mac & cheese) for those that aren't.

The drinks were inventive and delicious. Even on a Sunday night, the bartender clearly knew what he was doing. We had the Dan Marino Daquiri and the Sour Splash Bourbon.

We tried the Prix Fix menu which had a great selection. The food came in a timely manner with great presentation and were all delicious. When it was time for dessert, the waitress (who was not told it was my birthday, but must have overheard) had a candle in mine for me. Such a nice touch.

It was my first time here and we had a great experience. Our server was prompt and friendly and all of her recommendations were great. We had the octopus and mac and cheese as appetizers. The octopus was outstanding while the mac was okay but nothing to write home about. The sauce was a little runny for my taste. Two of us had the grouper special which was unusual but perfectly cooked and delicious and one person had the chicken sandwich which was outstanding. The cocktails were also quite good! Will definitely come back here.

Everything and everyone was amazing….

From the hostess, to the busgirl, to the waitress ❤️, to the master mixologist bartender 😊, and especially the chef!

We were a little nervous because our friend is also an amazing chef. He was VERY impressed with everything. The chicken liver appetizer was delicious! My girlfriend, who doesn’t like chicken liver, loved it! Be sure to order the naan with the Octopus Salad. Your going to want to dip it in the juice at the end.

The fried chicken is never a disappointment. My husband ordered the delicious ice cream (tastes as good as Seduto’s) and added a cup on espresso to it. The chocolate mousse desert was light and decadent.
