While Maureen's is always adding new items to their menu, it's their unforgettable and unique dishes that always keep people coming back for more. Those dining in the restaurant will be able to see their homemade dishes coming to life from behind the bar area where you'll find customers eating at the tabletop taking everything in.
Who's ready to head out to Suffolk County to enjoy a one-of-a-kind breakfast experience that you'll fall head over heels for?
Maureen's theme comes from the family's heritage of owning a cow farm up in the town of Callicoon and is one of the region's most beloved restaurants. The restaurant moved to its current location back in 1997 and has continually been drawing in crowds ever since. With friendly service, homemade food and a whimsical theme that brings a smile to customers faces, it's hard not to see why people love this place so much.
