Pridwin Wednesday Night Cookouts return this week

A summer tradition returns this week as the Pridwin Hotel on Shelter Island brings back its weekly Wednesday evening summer cookouts. 

Each Wednesday from June 28 up to Labor Day weekend, the Pridwin cooks up a delicious all-you-can-eat cookout menu on its expansive front lawn as the sun sets over the Peconic Bay.

This more than 50-year old Shelter Island tradition is more popular than ever and shows no sign of waning with about 500 attendees each week.

This year’s menu will once again include steamed clams and mussels, grilled tuna and chicken,  spare ribs and Kobe beef ribs, plus hamburgers, hot dogs, corn on the cob and a variety of salads and desserts. Lemonade, draught beer, iced tea and coffee are also included.

Tickets for adults are $42 this year, children ages 3 to 13 eat for $18 and children under 3 are free.

The cookout runs from 6 to 8:30 p.m., with live music from 8 to 11:30 p.m. This week’s performer will be Majik.

Customers can come by land or by sea (dock space is available on a first come, first served basis).

Reservations can be made in advance by calling (631) 749-0476. Walk-ins will be accepted, but reservations are encouraged for an accurate head count.
