Diners win out when a restaurant offers a multicourse meal at an enticing, all-inclusive price. And the restaurant gets to fill tables during off-peak weeknights. Here are three fine prix-fixe choices. Bonus: All are within view of water.

THE FIFTH SEASON, 34 E. Broadway, Port Jefferson, 631-477-8500

This gracious dining spot, across from Port Jefferson Harbor, offers a three-course meal Sunday and Tuesday to Friday all evening and on Saturday from 5 to 6 p.m. Choices change with the time of year. The meal might begin with a seasonal soup, followed by a second course such as roasted chicken and a finale of flourless chocolate cake. $29.95
