Scuttle Butt Bar – Wantagh, NY

Scuttlebutt is soooo legit. My first venture was testing out the “Best Lunch in Town” sign on the overhang. I saw it nearly every day as a kid and claims like that always intrigue me. It wasn’t bad. I wasn’t ready for it yet and stayed away for about 4 years. I’ve since tried it in a more mature life and now whenever friends from out-of-town come in, we always go to the Scuttlebutt.

The inside doesnt have a lame “boat theme”, it IS a boat. The rafters above the tables are made of huge pieces of wood possibly salvaged from a type of vessel they just don’t make anymore. Actually, the entire place is wood. There is usually room at the pool table or dart board, or basically anywhere you want to sit – If you come with a group, you will probably double the population at the bar.

On a trip to the Scuttlebutt you may encounter drugs, drunk bartenders, blue collars, and the Steve Miller Band. I wouldn’t expect (or want to) find people to hook up with there; you better bring your own fish.

I love it. Tell Uncle Mickey I said hello.
