The Cooperage Inn takes great pride in serving the freshest fish, meats and local produce available. Sauces are expertly prepared on premise by our chefs.



The name "Cooperage Inn" comes from the craft of coopering, which goes back a few centuries, when it was the major method of packaging. We are located in the Long Island Wine region. Wine makers have always relied on the skills of the Village Cooper to store and age their wines.

This is consistently a good place for dinner or brunch.
The staff is very attentive and they help to make dining there a great experience.

I was very disappointed with our experience. The Cooperage Inn had always been one of my favorite restaurants. We would celebrate special occasions there, and I was sure to take my staff from work there to celebrate the holidays. Unfortunately, when my husband took me, my son and his girlfriend this past Friday to celebrate my birthday it did not live up to our past experiences. The quality of the food was off (long wait between courses, the seafood (lobster) bisque appeared over-cooked (slightly curdled) but was Luke warm and the French onion soup was at least 50% cheese and also lukewarm), when dinner finally arrived my son’s filet (ordered med-well) was rare and all meals were cool (obviously sitting under the warming tray for some time). The waiter was not around so we wound up eating the food. When he finally returned to see how things were there was no point in doing anything but asking for the check. Unfortunately, we will not be returning to Cooperage Inn.

Celebrated a family birthday at brunch this past Sunday. Great selection of food set up in a beautiful way! Just enough breakfast & lunch selections to have great choices but it didn’t feel like a cafeteria buffet. The desserts were yummy & in small servings so we able to sample A few.

It has lived up to its reputation as providing plenty of food at as reasonable price. A plethora of drinks to choose from. My only draw back was I thought the music was overpowering for the size of the room

We came to celebrate our friends birthday. We made a reservation through open table but had to wait briefly before being seated. Service was good but I felt like there was a time where the waitress disappeared and we were waiting a bit between courses. My husband ordered the ribeye and I had the tuna and both were cooked perfectly! Delish! The key lime pie is the best!

By far one of the best restaurants on the north fork,south fork, and on long island. Live music in the back by bar is a one man show which is wonderful and not too loud. Service is impeccable, and just the right amount of attention. Food is delicious and large portions.

Been going to The Cooperage Inn for many years. Kind of a romantic getaway on the North Fork of
Long Island. Food is always good as is the wait staff. Only suggestions I have for improvement are:

Add some new items to the menu (Lobster Roll?)
Bring back steak fries and get rid of the crispy chips. Just not the same.
Also, as a frequent diner at The Cooperage Inn, I used to get a 10% off coupon emailed to me each year that was good for a full year. Stopped coming in 2020.

Brunch is always great. Food is fresh and replenished often. Customer satisfaction is very important to them too...my nephew simply stated that he would like some strawberries. The manager/owner happened to overhear and brought him strawberries and a bowl of whipped cream.

We were there for Sunday Brunch. The food was abundant, with a wide variety of choices, all of which we found to be delicious. It was very busy, but the noise level did mot interfere with our conversation. We had eaten there before, and found the service to be very amiable, as it was during brunch even though the servers were very busy. Highly recommend The Cooperage Inn.

I suppose that Restaurant Week played a role in the less than optimum service at The Cooperage Inn when I visited for dinner this past Sunday. The restaurant was non-stop busy, more-so than normal for a Sunday evening. As usual, the food was top-notch ( and it came out without a long wait!)...crab cakes....eggplant fries....pan-seared swordfish....and the seafood brousse! With great desserts...we were definitely very satisfied with the food. However, the service had issues although minor....confusion as to which table we would be seated at...multiple requests for water....failure to ask if we wanted coffee after dinner. But in all honesty, we felt sorry for our waitress after we were told that had to serve about 10 tables on a very busy evening! That is a management problem and they should be aware.

All in all, a very pleasant evening in a cozy atmosphere with some very good food and, with restaurant week, a great deal , too!
