Long Island

No reservations? No problem!

Labor Day Weekend is one of the busiest holidays on the island and getting a reservation at some restaurants can be harder than finding a hotel room!

We’ve found restaurants all across the island that DON’T take reservations and they’re all in locations that you have to visit while you’re here.
