The classic Southern and Northern Italian style flavors of this restaurant give visitors a taste of their family heritage.


Their award-winning pizzas are best experienced from the covered patio. Sit under the canopy for a great lunch spot or a romantic candlelit date location.

With a wide variety of beers on rotation, Eppig brews everything from pilsners to sours and more at their nearby North Point Brewery. Founded in 1866, this award-willing brewery was reestablished in 2016 by the descendant of the original founder, Leonhard Eppig. Stop in for a taste of brewing history.


Brigantine Seafood & Oyster Bar


The first Brigantine was opened on Shelter Island in 1969, and their passion for dishes from the surrounding waters has never waned. Their menu features popular “San Diego-style surf-n-turf,” including winning fish tacos and grilled swordfish.


If you’re looking for that authentic beach community experience, head to the Brigantine. Enjoy oysters in the half-shell while overlooking the beautiful marina, or partake in one of their many regional beverage offerings. This casual and welcoming seafood establishment is a must-visit.
