This review is for the out of town visitor of this beautiful area. First you may second guess the GPS because you drive into a ship yard and at the end you make a sharp turn to the right into the parking area and finally see the small but cosy restaurant. My family had me second guessing going that far... More

Good food, good service. Bartenders not so accomodating, but sit at a table and you'll be happy. It's on the water and the food is delicious. Best lobster roll anywhere in the Hamptons.

If you want the best meal,service and casual setting, then this is the place for you. We have never had a bad lunch or dinner at the Canal Cafe and we have just about tried everything on their menu and blackboard specials. Its Nantauket style setting puts you in a relaxed state of mind. A Must is their Lobster Roll... More

This is a find. We have eaten here a few times this summer and we have always had a good experience. It has the quirkiness one would expect from a marina restaurant. They don't accept reservations and wait times can be long as people park for food and drink after boating - so caveat emptar. However, we generally go early... More

Canal Café has a perfect setting overlooking a marina and it is beautiful on a sunny day. We've had several different entrees and they were all great. Service is excellent to. It must be great, regardless of the time of day we've been there, we've had to wait, but it is well worth it.

One hour to get seated, another hour to get the food, a whole 2 hours to put up with the rude incompetent waitress AKA server 8. The portions are giant and consisted of nothing more than mediocre food. The famous lobster roll was just ok, I've had better. This one was a giant portion of finely chopped lobster, peppered with...

Best food, best ambience. Down home cooking. Beats the south of France. Paper plates, plastic utensils, great owners who work the place.
