I visited this establishment because it was offered as one of the restaurants to receive a discount from a website.

The atmosphere is that of a local watering hole with nice napkins.

The service was not happy to receive my discount coupon upon my arrival.

We ordered mussels as an appetizer, the fresh Tuna entree, the seafood bisque, a salad, and had every intention of ordering dessert, well over the 50 dollar limit the website coupon would have required.

The presentation of all of the food was nice, but upon tasting the mussels had a very strong flavor of herbs and possibly age. The seafood bisque tasted as if it had been on the stove too long and my guest asked to have something else in it's place...the fried calamari appetizer. The tuna was overcooked and hurt the roof of my mouth to eat, and also tasted somewhat old. When I asked if it would be possible to have something else in it's place, I was reminded by the manager that I am required to make a purchase at the establishment of over 50 dollar limit. As I was noticeably insulted, she manager retrieved the owner which also was the chef.

The owner proceeded to tell me that he has been making the same food over 11 years and that I can't just come into the place "wanting to sample things."

I guess I should have ordered a burger.

Bayberry Cafe has good food for affordable prices. Lunch or dinner served and leaves you wanting more. Decent service and clean. I would recommend this place to others.

This place is small but the food is great. They are a little pricey with certain items but it has a nice quiet atmosphere. The staff is great and I would recommend you try it for a nice dinner.

I love the Bayberry Cafe. It is a little on the small side but it is really nicely decorated and the food is excellent. It is a great place to go for a quiet dinner. The staff is great and they don't rush you. Definitely give it a try.

This is my first review. The Bayberry Cafe was THE place recommended by the locals for the best burger in town. The menu featured burgers, sandwiches and local seafood. My hamburger has just like mom made when I was growing up. A hand-formed patty cooked to order, complimented by a fresh locally baked bun with all the appropriate garnish did not disappoint. My wife sampled the BLT. She was surprised by the amount (lots) of bacon and fresh tomatoes. Very friendly and efficient service in the early afternoon after the lunch rush. If we get back to Islip Town we will definitely be back. Already recommended this place to my son who lives in NYC.

Pros: Fresh ingredients

Cons: Too far from NYC to return before returning home
