    Great place for a fun relaxed dinner. I had the Southwest flatbreads for starters and a perfectly cooked ribeye for dinner. Pleasant ,attentive staff and a cozy dinning room made for a great meal. Everyone in our party enjoyed their food.

    Very deceiving from the outside. Very nicely decorated inside. Our waiter, Scott, was excellent. I had the Ugly Rooster and my wife had a salad. There was a mishap with her salad, with the wrong cheese put on, and Scott took care of everything and even thru in a free drink for having to wait for a replacement. Love the food; my chicken sandwich was made perfectly, the sweet 'taters delicious, and the quesadilla very tasty. Highly recommend this place. Customer service really was excellent!

    My sister and I enjoyed a delicious meal Saturday evening at the South Country Tavern.

    My sister only had rave reviews for the cosmopolitan. My whiskey sour was excellent.

    The baked clams appetizer was terrific, with hearty chunks of clam in the stuffing. Very, very good.

    My sister's chicken-and-waffles entree was delish, and there was plenty left over for her to take home. My rib-eye steak was cooked to perfection. The "tobacco onions" atop the beef added a nice touch. The mashed potatoes were flavorful. I cleaned my plate.

    The room is beautifully appointed. The service was perfect. Nothing but great things to say about the South Country Tavern.

    A sign in front reads "New Menu." So if you've haven't been to South Country Tavern in a while, you should consider a return visit in the near future.

    Kudos to the staff and management.

    Great service, great food. Wine, prime rib, & dessert. Nice evening out. Attentive service, tasty meal.
    However, our pleasant tasty dinner was fouled by the taste of cigarettes! 3 people smoking directly outside the only entrance/exit, it was like walking through an ashtray.
    If you are going to let people smoke outside, it should be at least 25 foot from the entrance.
    Or maybe you should smoke in your cars.
    YUCK! :-(

    I've only been here a couple times for brunch but #1 they were good times and #2 we were never without a drink from their bottomless boozy brunch (gotta love alliteration).
    First time was for a friends birthday so you already know we were hyped for brunch. They have a good variety on the menu from everything breakfast, to everything lunch, and a little in between. For $15 extra you get your choice of unlimited Bloody's or Mimosa's which are served up in carafes making it easier for you and your server. If anyone knows my crew, we're getting the most out of that bottomless deal. **Bloody's aren't spicy so if you're into that, ask for hot sauce**
    I suggest the kale & Brussels sprout hash, it's pretty tasty and top it with some over easy eggs for nice breakfast. I get this every time I come here, maybe next time I can branch out and try some of their other meals!

    It is rare that some place redeems themselves as much as South Country Tavern, but alas, redeem they did.

    So I stopped in with a friend. I hate blowing someone's dinner spot idea, so I kept quiet about my previous experience. So the improvements???

    First, we sat upstairs, albeit cozy, I didn't feel as cramped and the ambience was better. Maybe it was the dimly lit dining room twinkling with lights or maybe its just a better spot to eat.

    This time I opted for the chicken sandwich. I've been on a chicken sandwich kick lately and boy did this one hit the spot. A little balsamic reduction, perfectly grilled breast. Nummy nummy. I tasted the burger as well and I can't say I had food envy, because mine was sooo good too, but the burger was cooked beautifully and JUICY. It was plump and moist and flavorful.

    So will I return on my own accord?? Absolutely.

    Oh and service this time was genuine and attentive. So maybe mu first night was a bad night for them. I guess sometimes a first kiss doesn't tell the whole story. :-)

    We had a great night. The food was amazing, and the staff were very attentive and accommodating. They had an acoustic band that was fantastic. Not too loud and were surprisingly diversified in many different genres of music that appealed to all ages. Can’t wait to come back. ??

    Beautiful Atmosphere, friendly staff and amazing Food

    Of all the place in all the cities, I had to walk into "South Country Tavern." When I tell you it was a great decision, believe me it was. I was looking to find a new spot and I had this place bookmarked for awhile. I figured get a quick burger and get out. I was wrong. The place is nestled in the small village of Bellport. It's not hard to find and it has great parking. Going inside I felt like I never left home. Very cozy atmosphere and low lit. They have beautiful hard wood floors and candles everywhere. The hostess, slash waitress Michelle, was amazing! She took care of my tables needs with great effort. She was friendly and extremely hard working. She told us she was doing what she loved for 30 years. Trust me she displayed all of her talents. We started off with a appetizer. Michelle said the nachos were good, so we ordered them. This is the first time Michelle lied to me.... the nachos were amazing! Why would she undersell them? The nachos, specifically the cheese on them, complimented the entire meal. They make the cheese in-house and it stood out. All the ingredients were fresh as well so it was no surprise they only lasted minutes. Next was my main course. The yelp page says "I dare you to try our steak Burger!" I took up the challenge. When this huge juicy well prepared burger came out I thought it wasn't mine. Did they actually put a burger that large in front of me? This definitely wasn't a fast food patty, this was a hand made monster. Biting into it proved that wishes do come true on the holidays. The caramelized onions had the perfect texture and flavor. The bacon was crunchy. The bun was lightly toasted and the burger itself was juicy. It was the perfect formula for success. I got on my hands and knees and thanks Michelle for bringing me that steak burger. The question, will I return.....don't ask. Really don't, because I'm moving in the place. I can't get enough of the food, staff and atmosphere. If you're looking for the perfect place for a first date, then "South Country Tavern" is your place.

    Great service. Everything was delish. Enjoyed the Chicken Hasselbeck. The bacon onion jam was sinful. The maple mayo was the perfect dip for the sweet potato fries. Ended the meal with the chimichanga cannoli. Worth every calorie. Live music in the background was. Wet enjoyable.

    I love this place! The food is always amazing and at a great price. The atmosphere is adorable. The bar area is awesome too. Cute little place to meet up with friends. Definitely recommend stopping in here.

    Came for dinner and to see a friend's band play. Small inside but the food was incredible for a great price. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and our waitress was very attentive. After eating we hung out by the bar and needed a gift certificate for a friend and the bartender was very helpful with this and made sure it was a great presentation.

  • *****

    I love this place, the food is good, and the people are very nice. Always asking if you need anything.

    I was skeptical to come here because I really liked the restaurant before it. However, this place really made an impression. Definitely coming back here in the future.

  • *****

    Food and atmosphere here is great. I like this place. Nice and the food was amazing. We got the lobster rolls and they were really good. Decor is nice and quant little place. I can't wait to go back to enjoy a beer at the bar and go outside to eat! GREAT PLACE. Thank you

    My son graduated with the owner, who is very nice (I had never met her before). The food was very good and I have been back on many occasions. I would give it 5 stars but it was very noisy to the point you couldn't hear conversations at my table. The service was always good; the waiters and waitresses were friendly and knowledgeable. Can't wait to try the lobster roll this summer.

  • *****

    Great little restaurant. Restaurant very accommodating for all with a wide range of foods to choose from. Would definitely come back again and again.

    Three words: Boozy Brunch Special.

    It took friends of mine to take me here one morning after a rough night haha, and I have to say, this place is like a hidden gem. I honestly never would have known there was a little restaurant there. I normally don't take South Country road ever being that Montauk Highway is right there.

    Now, i'm pretty sure this special runs Saturday and Sunday 8am-1pm, but I have more trust in a screen door on a submarine then I do myself sometimes. However, I recall the special typically seems to be on those dreadful mornings after a crazy night of drinking. Well hey! There is now a cure for that! Quickly go snag yourself a DD or Uber and make your way to South Country Tavern where you can cure your hangover the only way anyone truly knows how... More Alcohol ! $15 magical dollars (With a purchase of a breakfast) gets you unlimited Bloody Mary, Mimosa, & Screwdrivers for a 2 hr limit. Now I'll admit, its not the most "top shelf" booze. But I can assure you it gets the job done.

    The "purchase of a breakfast"part isn't at all bad. They actually have a pretty decent breakfast selection, all at a pretty fair price. I usually get the omelet, which is huge... Oddly I'm not sure if its a standout tactic or what... but the omelet comes unfolded. Nothing's wrong with it! I mean, sure can just fold it over and it would still be a huge omelet but... Why not be different. I like to live life dangerously.

    The restaurant is kept clean, the staff is really sweet and they seem to have live entertainment which is always a nice treat.

    I'd say give it a go. Check them out. Maybe you too will find this gem.

    This place is great! I've been there several times and every time the food is amazing. The French onion soup is phenomenal - I get it every time I go there. The French Dip and the Open Face are both dishes invented by the chef and are cooked to perfection. At one point, the chef came out and spoke to us personally and asked for any comments/suggestions. The owner Lois did the same! The staff is very friendly. Desserts are very good as well: my favorites are the cheesecake and the carrot cake. Will definitely come back to check out the weekly specials!

    A group of us needed to find a place to go to kill some time before going to a wedding reception. There were six of us and the staff was so nice and accommodating. We told them we were just going to have drinks and they set up a nice table for all of us in the bar area. Our waitress was awesome and so friendly and the drinks were great! We were all happy to have found this place and will definitely be coming back here to eat. The food looked amazing!

  • *****

    Very good food and outstanding service. Had the onion soup and chicken parm for lunch. Was very pleased with both. Our server Scott was outstanding. Will definitely be coming back again

  • *****

    Great meal from start to finish. Started with the Hawg Wings which are pork shanks with choice of sauce. Had it with the teriyaki glaze. Awesome! Could make a meal out of these. Then ordered a steak burger with Brie, sauted mushrooms & fried peppers. Burger cooked perfectly & the fries were delicious. Finished it off with the chocolate lava cake with a scoop of chocolate ice cream. Perfect ending to a perfect meal. Highly recommend.

  • *****

    Food is very good. Service and customer experience is just okay.

  • *****

    Love this restaurant. The food is awesome.. Each time is better than the last. New additions to the menu. I'm never disappointed.

  • *****

    Got the open face prime rib and it was the bomb. Smothered in cheese and Carmelites onion-ey goodness. We started with this fried head of broccoli covered in beer cheese and bacon. I mean really how could you complain about that? Service was quick and friendly. Live music to top it all off - Love the atmosphere and would recommend this for a hot date or a quick bite with friends.
