This restaurant has managed to stay afloat and change as needed in shark infested Hampton waters. They have great outside seating, a great bar and a very warm and cozy dining room, not to mention a small game room with billiards tables and video games. The tap beer selection is mostly local, cold , fresh and delicious. The wings and... More

We have enjoyed many meals here, and have never been disappointed. The drinks are cold, the greeting is warm, and the food is excellent. Not fancy, just really tasty well prepared burgers, specials, seafood and salads. The steak fajitas are the best I have ever had. Nightly specials are a good value. Service is helpful and sincere. We love this... More

I wish it was better.. I want it to be better.. We love the staff & it should be better It just isn't better. It's so so and that is unfortunate. This restaurant is owned by locals who have been in the restaurant business for many, many years. They get by on mediocrity which is so unfortunate, they should be... More

The atmosphere was above average and you can dine inside or at the bar or outside on the patio. The place was clean, the staff was friendly, and the food (once they got it right) was great. Numerous mistakes with the food and the bill and the waitstaff was a bit inattentive. I would come back again.

My family and I got take out on New Year Eve. We had the iceberg wedge salad which was big and good. Somebody had the burger which was huge and good. The other people had the lamb gyro. The lamb gyro was frozen patties which I actually like and it tasted quite good.

So called 1/2 chicken entree was one thigh. When told to waitress and chef they told us we were wrong. Unbelievable bad attitude. No compensation was offered. Won't go back.

Went out for dinner on a Thursday night with my four year old grandson. He wanted the grilled cheese and French fries and finished the whole meal. I had the burger special and thoroughly enjoyed it. Carol was our server and made our experience even nicer, we will be back!

Out for dinner treat this dark November night in the Hamptons and immediately on entering this local fine pub/ steak house, one is immersed in a friendly and happy place which quickly lifts the Autumn gloom from one's tired spirit. Tap beers from Montauk and Brooklyn served just right. Great curry beef lentil soup, deliciously thick and hearty. Perfect (discounted... More

A pleasure to find such a nice, low-key place with great food, good service, reasonable prices, and nice people. So many places in the area can be overnpriced and pretentious, but this restaurant is really a pleasure. The nightly specials are real bargains, and desserts were yummy. Thanks for a relaxing, delicious dinner!

Went for $21 steak night. The size and quality of the NY Strip was very good. However, I asked for Medium temperature and the steak came out barely over rare. I asked for well done fries and they came out mushy. But the biggest knock was the absent waiter. Sure, he was friendly when he took our orders, but we... More
