Country House Restaurant Review

: The romance of Stony Brook village is well embodied at Country House. The Old Field Room and the Fireside Room both have working fireplaces, while those interested in dining under the stars should explore the Garden Room, an enclosed greenhouse-style patio. The American menus change regularly, but always include a number of creative dishes as well as classics, including appetizers like jumbo coconut shrimp and fried calamari and mains like grilled swordfish with chilled avocado mousse and citrus or braised beef short bread. Brunch options lean more toward lighter savory fare than the sweet dishes you might be used to. You may find salmon with broccolini, Maryland crab cakes or even a center-cut pork chop, and entrée-size salads such as the “fireside” with caramelized pecans, blue cheese and pears or a classic Caesar. Food aside, the Country House has another draw: the resident spirit, Annette Williamson, who has haunted the restaurant for more than three hundred years.

Rude, Hostile Management and Staff
by johnnyboy on Sun Dec 11, 2011 4:10 pm
Our much anticipated Christmas Holiday dinner at the Country House turned into the worst dining experience imaginable. After seating my wife and me in an empty dining room with my back to the distant fire place, I got up and moved to the empty place setting next to my wife so we could both enjoy the sight of the fire. After a couple of minutes, our waiter "suggested" that I move back to my previous seat. I explained that I wished to see the fireplace during dinner. A couple of minutes later, the angry red faced owner/host came over and loudly insisted that I change my seat back, stating" It is very rude to sit with your back to other diners". Let me again remind you that the dining room was EMPTY! We should have gotten up and left at that point, but in an effort to salvage the evening, we stayed. BIG MISTAKE! At that point we were hoping that one of the ghosts that reputedly resides in the house would spirit this clown away! Alas, no such luck. Do not make the same mistake we did!
