Since 1950, the Modern Snack Bar has been a North Fork landmark for great home cooking. The Wittmeier family began their restaurant with a simple premise: to serve good food at a reasonable price to their "family" of patrons.
Don't let our name fool you. From a humble beginning of short orders and milk shakes, the Modern Snack Bar has grown in size and popularity through the years. We still have great burgers and sandwiches.
Our menu includes such East End favorites as Roast L.I. Duck, Fresh Flounder, and our famous Lobster Salad. Specials of the Day include Roast Loin of Pork, Chicken Pot Pie, and Shrimp Parmesan, just to name a few.
Whether you're having lunch or dinner, there is something for everyone on our menu. Bring the whole family. Complement your meal with a glass of local wine or ice cold draft beer.
Do you love turnips? Our famous mashed turnips are available by the pint or quart. And don't forget to take home a fresh baked pie.
We are located nearby such popular East End attractions as the Tanger Outlet, Downtown Riverhead, Atlantis Aquarium, and the Hamptons. If you are planning a trip to or from New England via the Cross Sound Ferry, or just want to tour the North Fork's vineyards & farmstands, include a stop at the Snack Bar for a great lunch or dinner.
