I made a reservation last week on OpenTable for Oct 25. I received a confirmation text message yesterday and I responded to the text message that we are showing up for the reservation. Today comes we show up to the restaurant and it was shut down. Closed Anniversary dinner.

Not as good as it used to be. Food was a bit disappointing - crusted flounder was dry and black bean soup was just o.k.

We love the relaxed ambiance, impeccable service and delicious food here! The sauteed blackfish was the best fish dish we had in a long time. We always look forward to dining here and are not dissapointed.
Try it if you haven't.

Our experience at Starr Boggs would have been much better if we did not feel, from the minute we were seated, that that staff's primary goal was getting us fed and out ASAP so that the table could be turned. The service was adequate but indifferent, with different servers turning up for every course. Likewise the food was only fair and uninspired (duck overcooked/tough/fatty with a sad piece of cauliflower and 4 string beans on the side)

Unfortunately, our experience on 9/14 was exceptionally poor. The waiter (Matt) was outright rude and, when asked for an eta on the dinner that we had ordered over an hour prior, said "I have no idea. I am not a scientist". We requested to speak to the Manager, who acknowledged the waiter's rude utterance and offered to adjust our check. To make matters worse, 3 of the 4 entrees had to be returned as they were cold and incorrectly prepared (probably bc they wanted to get us our meals due to the extensive > 60 minute wait). Ultimately, 1 of the 4 entrees was canceled because everyone else in our party had finished eating and it was very late in the evening (after 10:30pm).

All in all, it was a terrible experience that destroyed a special occasion.

We sat at the bar at 5:30 on a Saturday and really enjoyed our evening - especially because of Sam and Megan who were working behind the bar. They were very pleasant, efficient and professional. You could tell that they genuinely wanted us to enjoy our meal. Our various salads were fresh and really delicious, the flounder (one of their signature dishes) was generous, fresh and delicious and the duck confit pappardelle was incredible! We will definitely be back!

We arrived at 5:30 so we were able to take advantage of the special menu. The choices were very good. We all had salad and fish which was delicious. After dinner we went to the back bar and had an after dinner drink and listened to music. We brought friends from the North Fork and they loved it . We will be back. Delightful evening.

I've eaten at SB many many times, and it just keeps getting better. This time, my wife and I each had the pork chop entree. Without a doubt, we can both say that this was the best pork we've ever eaten.....and we've been around long enough to have eaten a whole lot of pork. Just the best!

The food seems more commercial than it did years ago when one could taste and feel chef/owner Starr Bogg’s touch. It’s still good, and the best in Westhamoton Beach.

We've been eating at Starr Boggs since 1992 at his "Dune Deck" location. Anyway, every dining experience has been incredible!! We, for the first time reserved the 5:30 pm price fix dinner seating on 8/10 so that we could make it to see Brian Setzer's Rockabilly Riot at WHBPAC = both the dinner & show were awesome!
Once again, the food, service, drinks and ambiance are absolutely all a 10!!
Thank you Starr for 33 years of hard work to offer the most delicious food on L.I.!!!
Hope you enjoy your retirement!
p.s. really miss the Monday night Lobster Bake tho, just saying! xo

Starr Boggs continues to satisfy. The best sword fish that I have had anywhere. Seafood orzo paella and crisp seasonal vegetables accompany the entree. This time we tried the meat ball appetizer and the baked herbal clams - both sauces delicious. Warm great bread with excellent olive oil sets the standard when you begin. Sitting in the outside covered patio with gentle breezes and views of exquisite flowering trees and plants added to the summer ambiance. Our handsome young waiter was courteous, helpful and efficient. This time we never felt rushed or inconsequential. It was a very good meal, good value especially the prix fixe, the wine a little pricey but you can always count on a good one. I've been coming every season for Starr's food, in his previous locations also for over 30 years. Add it to your list while you can.
