This is my favorite restaurant in hampton bays. Great setting, totally chill, friendly crew and the best food you will ever eat off a paper plate. Ina and Jeffrey Garten sat next to us at lunch yesterday. The Barefoot Contessa would never steer you wrong....More

We had a nice meal for lunch outside by the docks. The special fish tostada was great, fish and chips was huge with nice flaky fish. Tuna sandwich was amazing! Good meal, nice service, pretty setting. What else do you need?

Nice lunch service is always good and the view is great. The lobster sandwiches are amazing but pricy.. They went up this year!! I guess inflation is expected. All around great place to park the boat and have dinner! Enjoy!

Have never had a disappointing meal but am particularly fond of their Lobster Salad which cannot be beat. The setting is not to be believed; the food delicious, the service top notch and would recommend without hesitation.

Outside dining on a nice day is wonderful. Casual setting with an inside bar and a few tables inside. Otherwise you are outside. Weekends are very busy and they don't take reservations so you may have to wait. Very good food! We have a boat...More

Canal has great food with an extremely laid back atmosphere. The plates are paper, the utensils are plastic, and the food is tasty! The specials are always delicious and the guacamole is a win every time. The only negative comment I can make about this...More
