The Garden Grill, which is housed in a building dating back to 1873, dishes out home-cooked American cuisine classics, ranging from soups and seafood to steaks and chops (which are hand-cut everyday in the kitchen).

It’s impossible to not grab your stomach while scrolling through the Ivy Kitchen & Bar in Huntington’s TikTok page. It displays dishes being made in the kitchen, cocktails being mixed at the bar and special events and party scenes. Enjoy a delicious meal and wonderful atmosphere at Ivy Kitchen, which also just opened in a new location space on Wall Street in Huntington.
Ainsworth’s TikTok account is as slick as the aesthetic of the actual restaurant. The Rockville Centre restaurant and bar posts videos from their popular “Ainsworth Fridays” weekly event, which features DJ spun tunes from 9:30 p.m. to midnight to help usher in the weekend. Ainsworth also has a trivia night every Wednesday. Favorite menu items include classic shrimp cocktail and slab bacon starters, chicken and waffles and the Ainsworth mac burger.
