Remington Tavern & Seafood Exchange
If your idea of a perfect cocktail is one that’s served with a side of fresh, raw oysters, this is your place. It’s also your place if you love history — it’s located in a converted trolley barn on the Erie Canal — or if you’re craving seafood dishes like seared scallops, broiled lobster and seared ahi tuna.

If you’re a sprits aficionado, you’ll find plenty to love about the extensive, whiskey-heavy menu at this modern American eatery. Wine lovers will be pleased, as well — as will those looking for modern takes on comfort fare, like peppadew-and-chorizo-topped woodfired pizza or Buffalo-style cauliflower. In warmer months, consider dining (and sipping) on the oversized back patio.
A rallying point for friends and visitors alike, this old-school tavern on Lewiston’s Center Street does new-fangled cocktails well, with a focus on small-batch gins and whiskeys, house-made syrups and local ingredients. Pull up a barstool or unwind on the patio — either way, you’ll be part of something special.
