Never misses!

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!

I love Canal Cafe simply because its quick, easy and an overall good time. The food is great and the service is good. There are certain things on the menu I would never order and there are things that I order everytime. The mussels for example, prepared anyway, are delicious. Drinks are cold, lobster roll is always on point. Sometimes... More

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.
