The name Seven Quarts Tavern chosen by the owners refers to the 1656 purchase of local land from Chief Asharoken of the Matinecock Indian tribe by three Englishmen. Three Englishmen purchased the land known as Great Cow Harbor for seven quarts of liquor, two coats, four shirts and eleven ounces of powder. In the mid 1600’s, the settlers and Indians had friendly relations and the transfer of land in exchange for these items helped the farming and shell-fishing blossom.
Seven Quarts Tavern has delicious eats and a great selection of craft beers and fine wines. The decor is super nice and the wait staff is very attentive. This is an awesome local place to dine in Northport!
Drove by the restaurant the third night it was open and decided to give it a try. I had an AMAZING time here with my girlfriend. The food and service were phenomenal and we loved the rustic atmosphere. We'll definitely be regulars here. Can't wait to go back!!!
Cool, relaxed atmosphere with staff that goes above and beyond for customers. Food is fairly priced for the high quality. Gastro-pub style dining. Definitely will be a new regular spot!
The owners read about the history of Northport and the story of Great Cow Harbor for inspiration to name the Tavern. They gravitated to the seven quarts name in the story featured here to stay true to the roots of the Northport community. Read more
