Worth the wait!

Long wait. No called ahead or reservation but worth the wait. We generally grab a drink and look at the boats. Everyone is friendly and it's nice being on the water. The music duet should go a little later but it's a nice treat. Try the mussels and steak sandwich !

Although this can be hard to find, the Canal Cafe is situated on a canal in a marina. There is plenty of outdoor seating by the water as the inside is rather small and cramped. The lobster toll, though expensive, is excellent, and there is always a wide variety of seafood dishes to choose from. The lobster roll comes with... More

The marina view is wonderful and definitely a place to have cocktails, but we were very dissatisfied in the food we ordered. My husband had deep fried overcooked oysters. The oysters were over breaded and very small (like a tater tot). We were told by the waitress that they were fresh before he ordered, but clearly that was not the... More

Great spot behind a marina. Mostly outdoor eating on a deck, bar inside. They have specials in addition to the menu. Nice views of the bay & marina. Only dislike is they serve paper plates & plastic utensils. Hope this will change one day.

The atmosphere on the water can't be beat! Good music and excellent food! Homemade desserts can't be beat. Chef actually cooks his fresh catch!

Wonderfully casual little spot on the canal. Best for a sunny day when you can eat outside! Great food, friendly wait staff.

Just had lunch at this beautiful and relaxing restaurant on the canal in Hampton Bays. Great outside seating at the upscale marina with a delicious lobster roll, which reminded me of driving the Conn and RI coast --- sampling lobster rolls along the way. Great view of super clean marina, gentle breezes today and great food. A must stop for... More

This is a little gem. The chefs are talented and put their hearts into each dish. Great staff. Excellent food and nice drinks. Great view. One of the few spits that retains a true "Hamptons" vibe. A favorite of friends, family and couples.

Outdoor marina dining. Great Oyster Po' Boy. Live music on Fridays over the summer. They don't take reservations so you could have up to an hour wait for a table. Relax and have a drink at the pick nick tables overlooking the water.

I was very dissapointed with the food and service. My husband was sick for two days following our meal. It was not worth the visit. Also, the restaurant is tiny and loud. I could not hear a word!
