Wonderful fresh fish and an atmosphere to go with it. Friendly vibes especially from Marie. Take a deep breath and enjoy the sea environment.

“Icky.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

So I see that I'm an outlier here ... but I can't let myself be influenced by other people's love of this decrepit establishment. I will say that the food was good - a solid 3 stars for the lobster roll. But having to consume it next to the smell of all those poorly-kept animals made the experience unpleasant. In short, the place reeks. Maybe it was just the breeze on the day I was there? The geese and ducks are kept in small, dirty pens so imagine my surprise when the waitress told us that the fowl were "only for show" and that the owners are "animal lovers." There's also a filthy pool of water with horseshoe crabs in it. Ick.

To be fair - this may just be what it looks and smells like to have a menagerie - but I would prefer not to eat a $25 sandwich next to it.

It didn't help that they overcharged us by $100 for our meal and it took them a long time to fix it on their credit card machine.

I was hoping to love this off-kilter place but it was just too gross.

“Not to be missed!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2009

Descriptions do not do Justice to the funkiest place in the hamptons. As you enter the driveway, you cannot believe that this could possibly be a working, retail/restaurant establishment. There are pens for raising chickens, French geese, show dogs, all kinds of shellfish, lobsters, etc. The French owner will take your order from a small but super-fresh menu & bring it to you at picnic tables over looking the bay. Check out the retail shop for hand-made crockery from France, a seafood market & freshly made fruit tarts. This place is a trip!

“Authentic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2008

One of the most authentic locations in the Hamptons. When you drive up to the Fish Farm, you are greeted by a dilapidated old warehouse, delivery vans that haven't moved in a decade, large swirling vats where shellfish are grown, roaming poultry, cats, a cage full of African Lion Hounds, and, on occasion, an employee who looks at you suspiciously. You may also encounter asian fish mongers, looking for a good deal on clams.

Don't be afraid! If you keep on walking you'll find Marie Valenti, one of the owners, in the kitchen or filleting a fish or working on some other odd project. She's owned the property for 20 or more years, and can tell you personal stories about all the big whigs in East Hampton and Montauk (like who pays for their clams and who doesn't, and how Cyril always pays in cash).

I tried the soft shelled crab, which was excellent. You order your food at a takeout stand, and then go sit down on benches overlooking the water.

Be sure to check out the little market, adjacent to the restaurant, which has a quirky selection of gourmet items, as well as some cool t-shirts.

Definitely a welcome break from Hamptons fluffery.
