    I was able to enjoy a nice quiet evening with my grandfather to celebrate St. Patrick's Day! We were also able to meet and talk to the Chef/owner of The Inn Spot on the Bay, which was really nice. The only reason it happened to be quiet was because of the pandemic we are dealing with. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was extremely charming and friendly. I look forward to return when it is packed :)

    As always, The Inn Spot never fails. It was the beginning of their international festival which they do in the winter months. They opened with a French menu: delicious,hearty onion soup, followed by beef bourgoninn and then a divine baba au rhum and panda cotta with a hard,burnt sugar crust...yummy!

    Excellent food! Service was excellent and I liked that that Chef Collette came around to the tables to say "hi" and to ask how the food was. Would refer this restaurant to all my friends and family. An outstanding dining experience.

    We went to Inn Spot for Christmas of 2018. It was the first Christmas without my Mom and I wanted to do something different for my Dad and three children. The dinner was beyond exceptional for all 5 of us. (My husband had a fever and couldn’t join us). I raved extensively about the food to my husband and my Dad agreed that it was outstanding and worth the 50 minute drive. Only the three of us ventured here on Christmas Day 2019 and were disappointed for different reasons. Service is excellent. Location is beautiful. Dad said the goose wasn’t at all as good as the year before. It was “grainy and dry.” The stuffing for my turkey dinner had chunks of bread in it and did not seem to be thoroughly flavored or entirely mixed. The waiter had told my husband that a gingerbread chiffon dessert was actually a piece of gingerbread and not gingerbread flavored mousse. He enjoyed the mousse but we were confused about the description provided when we asked. Lovely ambiance. Lovely place. Felt bad that I hyped it up based on 5 perfect meals the year before. Excellent sized portions. Nice flavors. Reasonable price.

    It was Xmas day, so our options were very limited. We tried the restaurant because it was one of the only places open. The view was very nice. The service was okay. The food was unremarkable. I didn’t hate it, but i don’t think I would go back.

    The ambience was great. The food was not very good and not worth the price. Roast beef drowned in gravy. Lobster bisque was sealers not real lobster or not much real lobster the citrus salad was one piece of orange one piece of grapefruit on lettuce.

    My wife and went out for our Anniversary. We made it just in time for an amazing Sunset. Followed by the best Hummus I've ever had. My wife had the crab bisque and the Tuna. The Tuna was perfectly seared. I had The Beef with mash potatoes, you can definitely tell everything is homemade here. To top it all off we shared a Waffalioni (Homemade waffle sandwich stuffed with cannoli cream). Can't wait to go back

    The duck tasted like it had been cooked earlier in the day. When we told the the waitress of our displeasure she didn't even flinch and changed the subject - really strange. Otherwise the atmosphere is nice.

    We had an awful experience. The menu was extremely limited and the quality of the food was bad. Some items — truffled tater tots— seemed to come almost directly from the frozen foods section at the supermarket. Items that supposedly included lobster appeared to have surimi in them instead. The shellfish pie at $32 was grotesquely overpriced. The duck special just had a blob of brown rice added to it, nothing more. This restaurant seemed to be a throwback to days when it was extremely difficult to find decent food on the East End. They need to up their game dramatically or pack it in.

    The food was awful - the seafood was frozen or imitation seafood and was seasoned horribly. The service was also awful- inattentive and sloppy. When asked about items missing, the server would snap and lecture us. After we paid the check, the server still came running after us to ensure we got the check and paid it. I would recommend that despite the good views, skip the dining experience.

    My wife an I recently visited for our anniversary. The location on the bay is beautiful, and the food was delicious. We started with the Oyster Sampler and the Dublin Lawyer. Both great, although portions were a bit small for the price charged. Main courses were Crustaceous Pot Pie and Long Island Duck. Again, both were delicious! We also had the "Bread" which was a tapioca crisp? Not sure what it was exactly, but it was a bit greasy...I'd avoid that one if I go again. For dessert, it was the Bees Knees. Very tasty. You're mileage may vary, but all things being equal, I'd go back again.

    Waitress could not explain a single thing on the menu, and waited forever to take our order and then forgot to put our drinks in. Food was awful. My son's chucatarie platter was bizarre -- some kind of fried pepperoni, no chutney or honey, no bread, some bland cheese, just weird. My tuna steak was obviously pre-prepared if not store bought as it was cold and dry. The oysters were served on water, not ice. Lobster salad appetizer was all mayo, not lobster, and I think made me sick. My wife's chicken and waffles was good, but that was the only tasty think in an otherwise awful mean with -- if possible -- even worse service.

    Oysters tasted off, not fresh. Chocolate pasta was interesting but not in a good way. Fish taco was not good. Food in general was not fresh and not prepared very well. That combined with the squadron of mosquitoes on constant strafe during the meal left us in a hurry to get the check. Inn and restaurant are too off the path to be a destination.

    Wife and I went for a birthday dinner after seeing the menu online...loved the old inn and the outdoor seating (staff will even provide blankets should it get too chilly... Wife and I had Crab Bisque, and the Chocolate Salad respectively, followed by the Lobster Roll and the Seared Tuna...with the Bees Knees (walnuts and local honey over greek yogurt) for dessert. With this fantastic view and GREAT food, was stunned that there was only one other couple dining ion the deck. A wonderful hidden gem worth seeking out!

    We have been to the Inn Spot about 4 or 5 times - we love the location, the menu is interesting and the dining rooms are attractive. But, each time the service was pretty bad. The Inn simply never seems to have enough help. There was one waitress the night we were there and another woman who seemed to be helping bringing food out of the kitchen. The one waitress was overwhelmed - she did a great job and really hustled but she could not do it alone. We waited more than 15 minutes and then I managed to flag her down and ask if we could order a drink. That took some time to arrive. And so it went. I think another problem with the slow service may be that the kitchen is too small to handle the size of the dining room. I heard the waitress tell the table next to us that the "kitchen was backed up" and there would be some delay in getting their orders through. That's not good.

    My Dad, three children and I went here for Christmas dinner. Since my Mom had passed away earlier this year, I wanted to do something totally different and get us all out of the house. I was so happy to find that the Inn Spot offered a Christmas Day menu. The atmosphere, food, and staff could not have been nicer. My three teenage children even loved it. At first they couldn't understand why we were driving all the way out east for dinner. Now they will never forget this special Christmas dinner and neither will my Dad.

    As always our meal and wine selections were delicious. We both opted for the duck which was perfectly cooked with a sauce that included marshmallow but was neither too sweet nor white and gooey, just a yummy, creative addition well disguised. This restaurant is noted for its surprising taste combinations.

    Went to the Inn Spot for dinner with my husband. I had the Calamari for my appetizer, it was the best I ever had. Cooked perfectly. My husband had the chilled Carrot Ginger soup, amazing. Fir dinner we had the Tuna(perfectly cooked) and the Duck topped with a amazing marshmallow sauce. We finished sharing a homemade ice cream sampler. The waterfront dining was out of this world right on the Bay. The service was great. Cheffe Collette even can to find out how we enjoyed our meal. We will definitely be back soon
