Pine Grove Inn, 1 First Street, Patchogue
Yes, that waterfront restaurant you enjoyed years ago is back and much of the décor is original. And though that water is good for summer, Pine Grove offers a nice Vermont lodge feel in winter.
The menu still includes a few German items, but you can also enjoy their seasonal Sweet Potato Bisque or a bowl of Lobster Bisque in front of their fireplace. If you really want to warm up, you can sip on a cocktail from their specialty drink menu.
