Whether youre there for a drink or to pick on some wings
as you watch the game, at Changing Times Ale House in East
Northport, no matter where you sit, its the perfect
Among their 49 televisions you can watch any game you please
and its not just the local ones. Meanwhile, you
can sip on a cold craft beer and choose some of the finest
foods youll ever find at a pub-like restaurant.
You can start off with a Jumbo Pretzel ($2.50, $3.75 with
melted cheese), or a Pu Pu Platter, which has wing dings,
potato skins, mozzarella sticks, onion rings and jalapeno
poppers served with marinara sauce, ranch dressing, barbecue
sauce and sour cream ($10.95). Or you can go with a salad,
such as the sweet and tasty Gorgonzola Salad, which has mixed
greens tossed with dried cranberries, walnuts and crumbled
gorgonzola cheese with Caribbean mango vinaigrette ($9.95).
Theres also the Yellowfin Tuna Salad, which is sesame-encrusted
seared tuna served over a mixed green salad with cucumber
wasabi dressing ($12.95).
Special on the night of our visit included the Honey Citrus
Duck Wings, crispy fried drum sticks served with honey citrus
pepper glaze ($8.95). The glaze was absolutely delicious and
they definitely werent kidding when they said it was
Burgers are a must. They have the Reuben Burger with sauerkraut
and melted Swiss ($8.25) and the Border Burger, with crispy
bacon, beer-battered onion rings, cheddar cheese and hickory
smoked barbecue sauce ($9.95). The Tex Mex Burger boasts jalapeno
peppers, chili, raw onions and cheddar cheese ($9.95).
You havent tried anything yet until you have the wings
though. They have a bucket of 50 wings ($25.95) or a half
bucket of 25 ($14.95). There is a choice of teriyaki, Asian
plum, orange ginger, Bourbon glaze and honey citrus specialty
Sandwiches are tasty and really show off the chefs skills.
There are the Schwartz sandwiches, which include the Shrimp
Schwartz, breaded shrimp and melted mozzarella cheese on a
toasted garlic hero ($9.50). The Roast Beef Schwartz ($8.75)
was incredible, its meat tender and cheese melted wonderfully.
It certainly fills the stomach.
We went ahead and tried the Old-Fashioned Marinated Steak
Tid-Bits ($13.95), which is served open faced, topped with
melted mozzarella cheese and onion rings on toasted garlic
bread and served with a baked potato, French fries or mashed
potatoes. If its any indication of how they make all
their steaks, then this is a must for any meat lover. The
steak bits melt in your mouth, if meat can even do that, and
the juices just burst. They also have a 14-ounce N.Y. Strip
Steak ($19.95) and a Grilled Marinated Skirt Steak, in a citrus
It may be hard to save space for dessert, but its necessary.
For our end-of-the-meal treat, we tried sushi. No, not the
type with raw fish. The one with fruits and rice pudding.
The dessert is rich, with creamy rice pudding served with
fresh mango, banana and strawberries inside and seedless watermelon
outside, and finished with kiwi wasabi and cantaloupe
Owner Eddie Plitt and his brother, Chef Tommy, truly make
this into a one-of-a-kind location for all your sports and
bar food needs. The food is unlike any food at a bar, and
is made even better by its incredibly affordable prices. This
is certainly a gem in East Northport worth going to. They
also have a location in Farmingdale.
