Come by car - or by boat - and eat up

Hungry landlubbers see Long Island as a network of roads leading to dinner. The view from the water is a little different: All around the Island- from Point Lookout to Patchogue to Montauk, into Peconic Bay to Shelter Island and Greenport, then along the North Shore from Port Jefferson to Huntington to Port Washington- inlets and coves lead to restaurants where you can dock your boatr and then dine. Luckily for the landlubbers, all of these eateries are accessible by car as well. Here's a sampling:
WAVE AT DANFORDS, 631-928-5200
By land: 25 E. Broadway. By sea: Hail the marina on the radio station VHF 09 with the vessel name. 75-slip marina accommodates boats up to 250 feet in length. Docking hourly fee 39 feet and less, $20; 40 – 59 feet, $25; and 60-79 feet, , $35, plus a 10 percent discount on your restaurant bill. The reborn restaurant at Danfords Hotel & Marina is the first cattery in memory to make the sprawling harbor-side site a destination for more than a room and a ferry. Wave emphasizes a New American menu. But the kitchen doesn't forget the Port Jeff essentials of surf and turf, either. Breakfast, lunch and dinner.
