Will + Randi
The Restaurant
Chef Bill Lengyel

Founded by Will and Randi Varney, our establishment has been a cornerstone of the community, offering delicious local cuisine and a warm, inviting atmosphere.

Will Varney, a local clam digger with a passion for cooking, decided to bring his culinary dreams to life by opening his own restaurant. With years of experience working in various Long Island kitchens, Will was well-equipped to create a menu that highlights the best of local seafood and American classics. Randi Varney, who grew up right here in Brookhaven, brought her deep-rooted love for the community and a dedication to excellent service, ensuring every guest feels like family.

To enhance their culinary offerings, the Varneys partnered with their family friend, Bill Lengyel, whose culinary expertise has been a vital part of our success. Together, they have cultivated a menu that features standout dishes such as our famous Lobster Rolls, succulent Mussels Red, the melt-in-your-mouth Codfish Grenobloise, and savory Baked Clams. Whether you're in the mood for a quick bite or a hearty meal, our menu has something to satisfy every palate.

At Varney’s, we pride ourselves on more than just our food. Our cozy atmosphere, friendly staff, and commitment to quality make each visit a memorable experience. We believe in creating a place where both locals and visitors can come together to enjoy great food and great company.

Thank you for choosing Varney’s Restaurant. We look forward to serving you and making you a part of our family tradition.
