Scrimshaw Restaurant Greenport LI, YIKES!

Motosport | Feb 13, 2013 07:21 AM

We had heard great reviews of Scrimshaw so we decided to head out to Greenport for a nice Sunday lunch.
They use Open Table so I made a 1 PM reservation. We drove 45 minutes and got there just before 1 PM.
They were closed for lunch!!! There were a few workers in the restaurant who said they were "setting up for dinner but not serving lunch today."
WTH??? I have always been happy with the Open Table operation. They have my cell # and email. Is it their fault? Or did Scrimshaw neglect to let them know they were not serving lunch? I am sure Scrimshaw got a notification of the reservation. Yikes!!
I complained to Open Table and the restaurant. Open Table apologized. No response from the restaurant.
We did have a very nice lunch at Bruce's Cheese Emporium & Cafe, one of our favorites in Greenport.
