Port Jefferson Things to Do

  • A night of Theatre

    Go to Theatre Three. It's a very old, small threatre that's been restored. They host both children's and adults plays. Their annual randition of "A Christmas Carol" is a must see. The theatre is beautiful, and there are few originals on Long Island like it. The actors are very skilled, and you will see a lot of the same actors in different plays....

  • Burritos the size of your calves...

    So a friend of mine suggested the burrito. But seeing that they were the size of my calves, this scared me so I opted for the Nacho Grande instead.This place is pretty popular seeing all the people coming in for takeout lunch.

  • The wraps are fantastic

    There are lots of choices and vegeterian is special here as well. Try all of their wraps, pick first one that is a new experience for you, and try a drink you haven't tried before as well. You can sit and look out at the village below and forget that time is passing. The staff is helpful and pleasant and low key as well. I like all the wraps and I...

    Billie's is a great place to enjoy a hamburger or many other simple pub fare with a good beer or other drink.I especially like this place during the week when the crowd is a bit older (long in the tooth).This is a very old building in Port Jefferson and the atmosphere inside reflects the feeling of permanence, history and old woods. There is also a...

  • Fresh, Delicious, local Seafood takeout...

    This is local seafood extraordinaire. Simply, good food with a Long Island flavor. The restaurant, in a coverted garage is open and pleasant, devoid of any physical atmosphere, but that doesn't matter since the food and the prices are so good.Lobster is always a good choice here and there are a myriad of seafood choices to eat in or take out.A...

    This is friendly place with a large square bar and a very good, relaxing restaurant that features Aged Steaks, Seafood & Specialty Pastas. They have GOOD beer on tap (imported and domestic) and on Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoon there is a delightful live piano music with Wally Alesse who delights in playing for people to sing. His range is unlimited and he can play a song in a multitude of styles and tempos.

  • Worth going to, but way over priced

    When people think of Port Jeff they think of the "Steam Room". Located right across from the ferry, its a large scale clam bar, you can sit outside on the deck and look at the water, or inside. It's a great place to go, but you will pay more than its worth. Their fried dishes are very good, but dont get crab legs... theyre overpriced and you get...

Port Jefferson Favorites

  • BeverlyTyler's Profile Photo

    by BeverlyTyler Written Mar 4, 2004

    Favorite thing: My favorite spot in Port Jefferson is this book shop on East Main Street.

    In business since 1972 at this location, founded and still operated by Michael and Mary Mart, the shop is Suffolk County's oldest antiquarian bookshop. Except for a few Book Fairs a year on Long Island and in New York City, the shop's sales are conducted on premise or via the internet.

    The Good Times Book Store is a wonderful place to explore for local book, travel books, speciality books, especially on Maritime subjects - one of my interests - history and travel books - another interest.

    Good Times Book Shop, 150 E.Main Street, (631) 928-2664

    Fondest memory: I can spend hours in the book store.
