Water View & Waterfront Dining


Mill Pond House

Mill Pond House nestled on the Mill Pond in Centerport offers fine dining with serene sunsets and picturesque views across to Centerport Harbor. Mill Pond's extensive lunch/dinner/weekend brunch menu includes steaks, seafood, raw bar and delicious fresh sushi options. A table on the heated covered year-round patio is a must and worth the wait.

  • Tip: Enjoy cocktails with a view at the newly renovated Pond Bar and don't miss Monday Night Lobster Bake.
  • Located at 437 East Main Street, Centerport, NY

Cold Spring Harbor

Harbor Mist

Harbor Mist is located within walking distance to the quaint village of  Cold Spring Harbor. Fine coastal cuisine and spectacular views of the boat-filled inner harbor provide a memorable experience. Be sure to take a stroll across the street to Billy Joel Park to take a picture and even better if at sunset.

Prime is a high end waterfront restaurant with docking available (reservations needed). Whether you come by boat or car, Prime is sure to impress. Hang out on the "fan tail" deck or on "the porch" for panoramic views of Huntington Harbor. Their menu includes “primers,” raw bar favorites, mizu sushi, steaks and chops, surf and turf, and home-made desserts.

The Whales Tale

Head to The Whales Tale for low key, casual waterfront fun and food. This "hideaway on a half shell", overlooks Britannia Marina with western views. A beautiful sunset is a sure thing and so is the fresh fish caught from local waters & brought up the dock each & every morning.  Their famous tropical cocktails and farm to table produce is an added bonus to the menu. This is an easy place to become a regular.

  • Tip: Specials on Monday - Thursday including Taco Tuesdays and Raw Bar specials on Wednesday.
