The only way to improve upon Long Island’s gorgeous waterfront views? Taking in your surroundings with a drink in one hand and a fork in the other. Come Sundays, bottomless brunch is the place to be for LI locals, who can be observed enjoying fresh-caught seafood, better-than-average buffets, and a classic cocktail or two.
A taste of the South is what’s on the menu at Blackbirds’ Grille. Conveniently located on Montauk Highway, this down-home haunt specializes in Southern fare, such as the Sunday brunch menu’s Tex-Mex omelet, breakfast burrito, and chicken and biscuits. Serving up Southern hospitality in the form of bottomless Bloody Mary’s and mimosas, Blackbirds keeps the good vibes (and the drinks!) flowing.
For a taste of the finer things (and drinks) in life, look no further than the Garden City Hotel’s Polo Steakhouse and Lounge. Visit this upscale establishment any Sunday from 11am to 4:30pm to enjoy freshly-prepared sushi, lobster, and more, all washed down with unlimited champagne, red and white wines, and select cocktails. Tip: be sure to book a reservation for this popular Long Island eatery, which is known to fill up fast.
Count on a restaurant offering docking to its diners to deliver some of the city’s freshest seafood fare. At the aptly-named View, Sunday brunch entails steamed crab legs, shrimp in the rough, smoked salmon, and breathtaking vistas of the waters from which they came. Also equipped with cozy fireplaces and unlimited champagne and mimosas, this Oakdale eatery is an ideal destination for your next languorous weekend meal.
Deal-seeking diners should run, not walk, to The Snapper Inn, where a Sunday brunch buffet featuring all-you-can-drink champagne and mimosas can be yours for just $36.95. Classic breakfast foods, savory options, and desserts all share space on the Inn’s menu, which includes made-to-order omelets, ‘peel your own’ cocktail shrimp, Colombian coffee, and more.
Come hungry to BK Sweeney’s, where all-inclusive Sunday brunch entails robust dishes and strong drinks. At this beloved Long Island chain, you’ll savor screwdrivers, mimosas, and Bloody Mary’s while digging in to fried chicken and waffles, crab cake Benedict, and egg and bacon-topped burgers. Tip: lasting from just 11am to 3pm, BK Sweeney’s offers a shorter-than-average brunch—trust us, however, it’s worth rising early for.
Gorgeous waterfront views aren’t the only thing on the menu at Captain Bill’s: the South Shore catering hall and restaurant also serves one of the island’s best brunch buffets. Offering something for every appetite, the Captain’s brunch features everything from peel-and-eat shrimp to waffles to salads— plus, unlimited champagne, mimosas, Bloody Mary’s, and coffee and tea.
Make every meal feel like a celebration at popular party and wedding venue Wave Seafood Kitchen. For just $34.95, diners can indulge in upscale eats, such as mussels Fra Diavolo, carved roast beef, and fresh iced seafood, alongside morning mainstays, like fluffy pancakes. Also offering bottomless Bloody Mary’s, mimosas, and champagne, Wave is certainly worth raising a glass, or two, to.
