“Overpriced, good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

The food was good, portion size for regular meals was ample.The mussels were the best pick of the day! $12.99 for a large bowl. The kids meals were a rip off - 2 small chicken fingers and a few fries were $6 - that didn't include the $3 child size drinks.

“This is a Surf Shack People...Get Real!!!...and the best ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

This is the best Surf shack on the East End, Good food, Good Music, Good People and Good Fun! If you are looking for fancy, go to Star Boggs! If you are looking for that casual special summer place, ...this is the place! Chuck and Sean the owners, make sure you feel at home! Be sure to ask to try a shot ski with you friends!!!!

“hidden spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

We always try and go for lunch and drinks here when were out from the city. they pride themselves on the lobster roll, its ok the bread is bland, but theres plenty of lobster. The burgers are huge, cant wrong there. Any sea food you get is good. Ive gotten steamers before, they were good, but there was a little sand in them :-( All in all you cant beat the localm its on the bay side of dune road on your way to cupsogue. Be carful not to blink otherwise you'll miss it. Great for drinks and outdoor seating

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

We had lobster dinners here on the plastic picnic tables outside. Its a small casual outdoor bar and eatery with live music.
