Off The Eaten Path...The Dory Restaurant

[Photo via Panoramio] Shelter Island's dining options are tasty, yet limited so if you're venturing to the Island and you're looking to try something besides Sunset Beach, Sweet Tomato's, or stopping by any of the many cafes located on the island, make a visit to The Dory Restaurant for their secret patio if for nothing else. Don't be fooled by its' appearance as this grub spot is more than worth the ferry ride. The food? Delicious. The view? Even better.What looks like an ordinary restaurant from the street, opens up to a huge back deck overlooking Chase Creek where you can enjoy your the menu of local catches surrounded by dim lights, candles, and live music.
