I have been coming here for more than 40 years. This is an excellent place with a very wide variety of beers and great food. No where else can you find deviled eggs as a appetizer choice! ! I highly recommend coming here.

You can always go to Canerbury's
Canterbury's has been in Oyster Bay almost as long as I have. You can't go wrong. When you can't decide where to go, Go to Canterbury's. Never a bad meal or a bad time. Nice menu and nice people.

Decor is fabulous -- the look of a turn of the (20th) century public house, exposed brick, lots of wood, rustic,  old political posters and cartoons, artifacts and historical images abound.  The specter of Teddy Roosevelt looms large.  Well he's the favorite son of this town, and rightly so.  The huge chalkboard listing of available ... read more

Their oysters were fresh, but they had sands in some of the oysters. The shells of the oysters also came to the dish with small rocks. Other items on the menu don't seem to be very attractive or special.
