Dry your eyes and pull up a giant barstool—Hooters is back in Farmingdale. The restaurant, known for its chicken wings and orange shorty shorts, reopened in July under new management. In the three months since then, Colin P. Parker, director of operations for Hooters of the New England and New York region has been working to restart business in Farmingdale and beyond.
“We knew the potential of the location, and are very pleased with how things are going,” Parker said. Between their aggressive beer pricing, famous wings, and even more famous Hooters Girls, he is confident Hooters will remain a steady presence in Farmingdale.
Great for a night out with friends, or a quick lunch out of the office, this location features pool tables, 40 draft lines, and all you can eat wing specials on Wednesday and Thursday nights.
The Farmingdale restaurant is doing so well under this new management, Hooters of New England/New York is reopening another location in Fresh Meadows, Queens in two weeks. After that, Parker’s goal is to open yet another Hooters in Westbury, Brooklyn. “We saw the historical sales were good, and now we’re making improvements to make them even better.”
Located just off of Route 110, Parker’s focus for the Farmingdale Hooters is to offer the best value to their customers and create a hospitable atmosphere. The “delightfully tacky, yet unrefined” restaurant is also becoming active in the community. This month, they were involved with the 12th Annual Veterans Home of Long Island Golf Classic.
Now that Hooters is open in Farmingdale again, you can stop worrying about where to buy your 128-ounce beer tank and start planning your night out.

Bethpage Water District officials recently filed a federal lawsuit against Northrop Grumman Corp., claiming the company’s facilities caused “irreparable harm” by creating a toxic plume that has contaminated the groundwater, costing the district millions of dollars and threatening more than 33,000 customers in Bethpage, Farmingdale and Levittown.
According to the lawsuit, the district is demanding a jury trial to determine whether Grumman owes compensation for the costs of monitoring contaminants, operations, maintenance, treatment upgrades, and equipment required to comply with state and federal safe drinking water law; or whether Grumman would bear the expense of securing an alternative source of clean drinking water.
