The Sea Basin Restaurant has been family owned and operated since 1980. When owner and chef, Hasan ("Spiro") Karachopan, opened the Sea Basin Restaurant in Rocky Point, New York, it originally served roughly 40 people. In 1984, Spiro expanded the Sea Basin and increased its serving capacity to 100 people. In 1987, the Sea Basin once again underwent major construction.

This time, Spiro built an upstairs dining room, where he caters private parties to up to 80 people. Throughout the last ten years, Spiro has constantly renovated and improved the interior and exterior of his establishment.

Not good at all. Food was over cooked. Or greasy. Or tasteless. Sad to see this. Been here before. Worst time we’ve had. Hope it gets better.

Hubby said the baked clams were some of the beat he ever had. My shrimp scampi appetizer was delicious!
I enjoyed my Chicken Francese very much. Hubby had one of the seafood combos with shrimp scallops and lobster. He wasn’t impressed with the lobster tail, but enjoyed the rest. Served with rice which was also very good.
First time there. Had a very enjoyable meal.

Food was delicious, mixed drinks were strong. Calamari for 2 was enough for 4. Try to order from daily specials as they are fresh caught seafood.

Outstanding food. Our server was incredibly attentive and thoughtful. We were full, and taking home food from the generous portions, so desert wasn't a thought. We still received an delicious cannoli on a plate inscribed with Happy Anniversary in raspberry sauce. It's been years since we'd been here. We will certainly be back.

I had a swordfish special that came with a crab cake. This special did not include a salad or any side dish.just the two pieces of fish. The swordfish was excellent. The crabcake was tasteless.

We were excited to go to Sea Basin with the combo of sea food and Italian food menu options, along with the newly remodeled bar. We started off the night strong with great tasting cocktails from the bar. The calamari appetizer we ordered was a pure disappointment for the three of us. My veal parmigiana was not very flavorful and another salmon dish had a funky overcooked flavor. We were also disappointed at these two pretty standard go-to dishes. The waitstaff was courteous, friendly and prompt. Managment appearances were friendly and welcoming. The cost was over $100/pp which made us feel that the value could have been better. Since this was our first time there, 2 out of 3 of us would give the Sea Basin another chance, but maybe only for cocktails.

Food is good. They're trying to rush you out so they can use the table again. Appetizers came out quickly but dinner came out right after had no time to digest the appetizers. My suggestion order appetizers don't order dinner till your done

Food was excellent. The best stuffed lobster I have ever had. I gave ambiance less than 5 stars because the tables were too close together, a bit noisy, and price was a little high.

Calamari and Lobster Bisque were great. Our main courses including the Lobster special was bleh. The lobster was burned and overcooked. The other seafood platter was just very bland and not cooked well. There were maybe two or three other tables in there and service was very slow. Our server was nice but it took forever.

We went for restaurant week. We had the stuffed lobster. We look forward to restaurant week especially for stuffed lobster. It is outstanding. Portion was large and well
made with scallop stuffing. The appetizer was also excellent of shrimp and eggplant,
We traveled 45 miles to get there and well worth the drive.
