Beautiful setting; liked it so much we came two days in a row. Loved sitting in both the sun room and the bar area. Love the moose on the wall! Excellent servers, fantastic clams and oysters.Great burgers and soups.

The last time I dined at The American Hotel was approximately 15 years ago and I remember the experience fondly. I really don't know why I have not been back there sooner than last weekend. Well, I returned and I expected it to be like the last time. It was not even close. The food was average. My husband and... More

Last night we had a great meal in a dining room that had real atmosphere. The food was exceptional and it was great to have a meal that came with vegetables included. The service was very attentive without being overbearing . The wine list was a giant book covering most of the wine regions of the world. The pricing seemed... More

Last night, my fiance and I went out to celebrate our second year together. We wanted our choice of restaurant to be every bit as special as our finding each other. Both, having eaten at The American Hotel, in Sag Harbor at different times before we met decided this was a place we wanted to share. I made reservations the... More

Probably one of the areas nicest restaurant in terms of quality of food, service and ambience. Active bar scene, lovely piano music in the main dining room and superb service always. The menu is varied and the portions are large and prepared creatively. I have never had a bad meal here. The prices are not inexpensive, but the quality and... More

Pretty place but we were really there for the food. Unfortunately, the duck was tasteless; the frisee salad was inedible because the vinegar was so strong; and my compatriots' meals were only slightly better. When you dare to charge to charge a premium price, please make sure the food is worth it. We were sorely disappointed.

No, it's all good - but for some of us this is a step back into nostalgic old-style European hotel. he service is excellent the breakfast was fun. I sat in the "garden" space - look around and discover the sammelsurium of eclectics that over-load this cute place. Definitely a place to visit for food or a sleep over.

A liitle slow by service staff to get up and going considering our booking was at 2pm. However from the start of food service which consisted of 1 dozen fresh local oysters then followed by caviar which suprisingly for $125.00 is what could only be described as amazing...with all typical condiments included. A must try was the 2 pound Lobster... More

Great food, especially the steaks, although the sole I had was outstanding. The dining room is classy, old time Americana . The service was phenomenal, just right. Food presentation was beautiful , portions just right. Dining Room has moderate noise level. Pricing is typical for the area, expensive but not out of line considering the quality and location.
