Ate here the other night. Food good, waitress (Gwen) efficient. Hadn't been here in years. Worth a stop if driving on Route 27 in East Hampton.

This is a overlooked gem....food is quite good, prices are extremely reasonable and the staff is pleasant and professional. My wife and I had a two course prix fix for $22.00 last night, which is a price you can't beat in the Hamptons. Plus their martinis are huge...
