We've been to Spinnaker's several times and each time the food and service have been great. Definitely worth a visit.

We took my mom here for Mother's Day since it was close to the arboretum. The food was solid if not spectacular (menu was limited for the holiday, I think), the service was competent if a bit lethargic. House band needs to go, or at least not play during high-traffic hours - they were pretty terrible (off-key singing, could not keep a tempo to save their lives) and it was kind of embarrassing. While it was overall a fair-to-decent experience, I don't think I'd return for a special occasion - the restaurant seems better suited for casual dining.

Very nice rainy Saturday night dinner out. Everything is homemade from scratch. The cheddar bread they bring to your table is soft and moist. Both the swordfish and the salmon were terrific. Do not leave before you have the homemade salted caramel ice cream sandwich with the ice cream soda! We plan to return sometimes just for a takeout of that delicious dessert!

Best food we have had in Oyster Bay so far, especially the swordfish. Brought my 3 preschoolers, who behaved pretty decently, and the staff were very nice to us and them.

This dinner was to my birthday ! Michael Ross, the head chef came out and wished me a Happy Birthday, which was nice ! He said “hello” to Eric and me and we introduced my sister, Bobbi, also.
The food was great and prepared perfectly!!
The service was good too. All in all, it was a very nice birthday celebration!

Very welcoming staff, excellent food on a nicely varied though limited menu (which isn't a bad thing ; the dishes they do have are extremely tasty and you can see that they put their heart into them). I will definitely be back!

Food was amazing. We shared the octopus and I had the blackened swordfish. Our waiter Dan was great and helped steer us towards a great wine to go with our dinner. They had live music as well so we moved to the bar area after dinner.

Great food. The New England clam chowder was one of the bests I've ever had. Excellent tuna tartare, lobster bisque and lobster roll. Dan, our waiter was great.

Had the special of duck lasagna. It was so mushy and saucy I really didn't enjoy it. Dessert was peach cobbler. It had a strange rubber like taste to it. We couldn't eat it and just left it. It was a Thursday night so we did get a decent bottle of wine for half price!

My friend and I went to Spinnaker's for lunch. We received a warm greeting. The menu had quite a nice variety of dishes to choose from. We both opted for the Spinnaker burger. I had mine plain, while she had hers with works. The burgers were done to perfection. They were moist and juicy. We ordered the strawberry cheesecake for dessert. It was not a slab of cheesecake, but a small round cheesecake topped with whipped cream and surrounded by strawberry slices and strawberry sauce decorating the plate. It was wonderful. I will be recommending Spinnaker's to my friends.

Great new spot in oyster bay my wife and I tried recently. Share the grilled oysters and otocpus to start. Both were awesome. My wife had the blackened swordfish and loved it. I tried the skirt steak which was perfect. Marinade was awesome. They had a good crowd for the live music and it didn't intrude on the dining room too much. We moved to the bar for some drink and music afterwards. Great night, great music and great place!!

First review with 5 stars must have been by owner. On par with diner level food, at best, at higher price. Very casual--nothing wrong with that-- but not 5 stars. Did not have the organization or comfort level to consider that. I rarely write reviews, but the only standing review gave 5 stars and was grossly misleading.
