Into the former home of The Hideaway comes The Boat House.

The dining room is brighter. And  the staff is friendly. But this isn't exactly a dining destination. It's a summery stop for casual eating and imbibing, situated at the Brewer Yacht Yard. Alfresco tables are shaded by Ferrarelle umbrellas.

Better choices:  The burger, with Cheddar, bacon and onion straws;  Cajun-style shrimp poppers with Creole mayo for the full N.O.; and a production dubbed "wasabi pea crusted tuna," pictured above. The tuna itself is fine; any hint of those snacky wasabi peas,  let alone wasabi, minimal.

Desserts are centered on ice cream.

The Boat House, 128 Shore Rd., Glen Cove; 516-277-2088.
