The Coach Grill and Tavern is a family run business that opened its doors in 1994. It is a friendly neighborhood restaurant where we have no customers, only friends and guests. The cozy, comfortable, everybody knows your name atmosphere combined with excellent food, an extensive wine list, craft beers and top shelf service has made the Coach Grill a destination for over twenty years.

On Friday and Saturday nights we only take reservations for tables of 6 or more because of the hectic nature of the weekend so Open Table will be disabled. Feel free to call or walk in on those nights.

We ordered fresh oysters which without the horse riadish source were inedible. I ordered salmon which when it was served to me smelled fishy but I didn’t want to send it back but unfortunately it was not worth eating and my husband ordered chicken which was dry. The reviews for the restaurant were great but I would not go back. I guess if you’re ordering greasy fattening food perhaps it could be good but our meal was not worth eating

I am very sorry you had a bad experience. We take pride in what we do and it is our goal for everyone to leave happy. We need to do a better job of checking on our customers but your server said you did not complain or vocalize your problems. I would have comped everything and apologized. We are a small family run business and negative reviews are very damaging. I hope you give us another chance. We will use this as a teaching point to our staff to always ask how everything is and was.

As always, fabulous food and service. We shared a harvest salad, my wife has a special of rockfish oreganata and I had coach version of veal chop Milanese, the veal chop was huge and crisp, meat was of the highest quality and topped with 2 large slices each of tomato and fresh mozzarella topped with a balsamic glaze and a pile of baby arugula with balsamic. A really nice bottle of Chardonnay and terrific service from Samantha. Plus A very congenial atmosphere with Russ visiting every table to make you feel very welcome guest

The restaurant reminds me of a place nestled in the poconos with a great deal of character and warmth. The staff was highly energized and competent and it appears that most were veterans of this establishment. The food was wonderful and the drinks were also made with attention to detail.
I would recommend this place but try to make your reservation if you are a couple after 8pm, since a lot of kids are there before that.

Amazing, as always.! Their duck is the best around.. Crispy on the outside with an amazing fruit sauce. And all of their appetizers are great. The shrimp cocktail sauce is terrific, the gravlax is delicious and the artichoke appetizer was steamed with goat cheese — also the best I’ve ever had. Highly recommend this restaurant. Always consistent.

We wanted to try a new place on New Years Eve. According to the web site we should get there early. Other than some loud person at the bar, at our 4:30 reservation, we found the dining room deserted and we were seated next to the kitchen with all the servers gathering there. Very annoying...Also the steak was ordered medium rare and came out RARE. When it was reserved, it was well done. The rest of the order was fine.

Great food and exceptional service as always. Russ is a very gracious host and tonight’s meal was excellent.
Started with baked clams oregananata and then the best duck we’ve had in a long time plus a really good bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Dessert was Banana Foster cheesecake.
Love Coach Grille

The Coach Grill is rustic and fun dining. This is American tavern style food with a good assortment of fish, duck, lamb, and steak. I like It because the food is always good, and it’s old fashioned decor is like the 1700.s

Hubby had oysters and salmon that was very good. I had clams oreganata and the lobster ravioli which was delicious. We're just not used to New York prices. Aside from that definitely would eat there again.

Always a nice meal at this Oyster Bay gem. Have been going here for years and each time the food continues to be enjoyed by my entire family. Friday and Saturday can be tight - but that's not different from any good Long Island restaurant. Waiters and waitresses are always a pleasure and seem to enjoy their job.

Bartender was a real nice guy. Was working alone and did a good job . The place had a funky moldy, wet dog and wet carpet smell that we couldn't get over. The sandwich I had was to be on ciabatta and it was on marble bread that was over toasted and not pressed. The sun dry tomatoes were not sun dried, the glaze was to be glaze and it was a vinegar dressing and not balsamic glaze. If you care that little about your guests to put the time and effort into your dishes as you did not, it may be time to move on !

I do not understand why a cook would make a decision on changing the contents of a dish without letting the patron know. I suggest you have a drink at the bar instead.

I apologize that the lunch did not live up to your expectations. We had an issue over the summer with a leak and rot that we have fixed. Talking with the chef it was a careless error, he used regular tomatoes instead of sun dried tomatoes and balsamic vinegar instead of glaze. The balsamic turns parts of the bread black giving it a marble appearance. We apologize it was over toasted. He did not do it maliciously, all of our staff, care deeply about our guests experiences. Very sorry again.
