The fish and chips were exactly what I was looking for. The lobster roll is traditional, shredded lobster meat and mayo, nothing fancy. Great if that's what you're looking for. A little pricier, but it's New York. Go see Danny out back at the Tasting Room for lots of info on local brews, and Long Island interesting sites.

Stopped for an early dinner while out in Riverhead. Have visited the Amagansett location many times but never been here before. Very quiet at five when we arrived but cars were arriving as we finished. We chose to eat outside on the covered patio which was nice except for a lot of gnats flying around. That may have been just... More

Was told it was a good place to eat, was not dissapointed. Ordered the house special "Lobster Roll" of which I've had many, but none as good as this one. Others in my party enjoyed their meals as much as I did.

Very overpriced for Mediocre food. There were so many flies buzzing around our food it was gross. Go somewhere else for a better value and no flies.

The warm toasted bun is placed on the side so you can 'build it' yourself. There was... More

Stopped for a bite before we hit the outlets. I had the lobster roll and my husband had a burger. Both were good, nothing outstanding. The staff was was very nice. I was a little disappointed the little shops surrounding the restaurant were all closed. It was a Thursday, and they only open on the weekends I guess.

I return to this seasonal restaurant several times per year for their lobster rolls. The absolute best. I've also had the lobster salad as a grilled cheese lobster sandwich; the steamed lobster; and even their oversized hot dog. The french fries are wonderful as well. A must if in the area or even if you have to travel a bit... More

There were 7 of us! The staff was very willing to accommodate a large table. Richie, our server, was very friendly and provide excellent service. The food was amazing. The puffer plater, a real local favorite was a hit. I must admit it was my first experience with this dish, yes I recommend it. The lobster dishes were plentiful and... More

I love the Lobster Roll on Sound Ave. in Riverhead. The food was delicious. The dining areas, indoor and out are beautiful and make you feel like you are on vacation. They had live music outside too. Service was swift without being rushed.
