North Shore restaurant options? (Waterfront would be ideal)

no waterside food options in great neck, you would have to head to Port Washington, Louie's should work, about 10-12 minutes away

Lola in middle of Great Neck is top notch

Loft's Candy and Butter Nut Crunch

Itgens in Valley Stream

Great places on Long Island?

Heirloom Tavern last night; hopping and yes, loud; had the veal meatballs, good, not great, reminiscent of Maroni's, non descript caesar salad, and a cheese steak, not bad, friends had fried chicken, not bad, Biscuits & BBQ in Mineola serves better, many other places to try before I return
