A little slow in seating for 8:15 reserv but nice dinner
Food and the service was good. Restaurant is a little pricey
They always exceed expectations. The food is flawless. The staff is friendly and professional, and the facilities are immaculate.
Open, airy dining room with lots of windows and light with great views. The food was excellent! Great variety of selections both on the regular menu and the daily specials. My wife had the horseradish-crusted tuna and said it was the best she ever had. I ordered the brook trout with roasted pignoli nuts off the prix-fixe menu and it was delicious as well. We shared a big plate of "burnt broccoli" which was charred perfectly. The waiter was outstanding, pleasant and helpful without hovering and being intrusive. Really couldn't find one thing to gripe about, we had a perfect afternoon lunch date and will definitely return again.
Outstanding & reliable on Freeport’s Waterfront.
A MUST go to. Food was fantastic. Very Covid friendly and proactive. Great parking. We loved it.
The Nautilus Cafe always provides great food and perfect service.
average 3 times a week
Suggest weekend / early bird too........
Seafood and Porter house steak also recommanded
The Nautilius Cafe is a consistant favorite on the Nautical Mile. The food is always good, they offer nice specials and the service is top notch.
Great Food!!! Great customer Service!!!
Nautilus never disappoints! A must if you have never been for excellence service and high quality cuisine. The best swordfish anywhere!
Except for some new younger staff members..."The Nautilus Cafe" has remained over all the years that we have been dinning there...one of our TOP restaurants. The food & service can't be beat.
The management and staff are extremely knowledgeable and up to date on the Covid guidelines. This is my family’s favorite place to eat. The staff gets to know you personally and ensures you are satisfied beyond your expectations. Chuck is the best bartender in the area, with Laura as the front line leader of the restaurant.
Thank you for making every dining experience first class. Can not wait to see you all again on Saturday 2/6 at 6:30 PM for my mother’s surprise 70th birthday.
I have been here many times and have always been happy with the food and service. This time was no exception. Ramon was super and also the young man who kept filling my water glass. Fish was excellent. They also kept everything safely covid distancing.
We had a beautiful corner table with windows. Service was perfect. Food was amazing. I had the lobster and my wife had surf and turf. Everything was cooked perfectly. Make a reservation and go.
service and food ,on the spot! most consistant restaurant in freeport for 30+years.
Food is delicious! Service is excellent! Great time by all!
Anniversary celebration was awesome.
Excellent seafood and great service. I would recommend this place.
Excellent service, awesome food, great night
My husband always gets the boneless prime rib. It was cooked to a perfect medium rare, and had very little fat on it. I had the grilled skirt steak which was also very good. And don't forget the curly onion and french fry combo as a side.
Food is amazing
Drinks are perfect
Thankyou for a wonderful dinner
Always an excellent meal. During the week there are different special nights ie. steak night, wine down night. Not a large venue. Reservations are a must early bird is a great deal.

Nautilus Cafe is always a wonderful experience, with delicious food and excellent, attentive service.
The food was delicious and fresh.
Consistently wonderful. I wish the restaurant was closer to Garden City. I'd go every week!
Sat outside on an October evening, heaters close enough that we could enjoy dinner without being cold. Terrific food and attentive service.
Superlatives all around: food, service, atmosphere.
I look forward to my visit every week.
Kudos to Brian and the staff!
We sat outdoors in a tent. We ordered the bronzino sandwiches. They were delicious. The mud pie dessert also was a winner. Nautilus cafe is always one of our favorites.
A stellar dining experience.
Great food, wonderful service, relaxing atmosphere.
The week is not complete without a visit to the Nautilus Cafe.
Brian and his staff are terrific.
I had the halibut and South African Twin lobster tails... Both were amazing.
Celebration of our 42nd anniversary
Great food and delicious wine to pair. The crab cakes were amazing, and we did a surf/turf salmon and steak. All very good. Outdoor seating was nice with heated lamps and appetizers were very generous portions. Topped it off with a great apple crumb dessert.
