We had an eight o'clock reservation and had to wait about fifteen minutes for our table. We had asked for a quiet table as we were a party of eight from two different countries who hadn't seen each other for a year. We wanted to be able to enjoy not only our dinners but good conversation. For a Wednesday night... More

A resident for nearly 40 years, The American Hotel has a colorful history in the community as a place that traveling salesmen stayed on their ventures east. Situated near the harbor, the hotel still plays host to guests. The bar and restaurant reflect old world charm. Vincent, the superb bartender always wears a welcoming smile. Greeted in the front parlor... More

Went with friends and enjoyed the delicious food. They were great about respecting food allergies. Everything well prepared and nice selection. Great ambiance. Crowded but we ate on the early side. Not cheap but worth the money. Lovely the Long Island roast duck. Divine! My friend liked Bone Marrow appetizer and Sweet Bread maincourse. I had beef broth with mushroom... More

This restaurant far exceeded my expectations. We sat immediately and our waiter had knowledge of all courses. The food was excellent and the bananas foster was perfect. Would highly recommend to anyone going out to sag harbor for a nice dinner for two.

We had a group of 12 and they did a good job finding room and taking good care of us. The waitstaff did an excellent job keeping up with the group. Great wine list.

The American Hotel is righly located directly in town on Main Street...it truly is at the very center of the community in so many ways! You'll find locals, celebrities and visitors all sitting together in the bar and front lounge areas-- no pretense, just camaraderie, great food and refreshing beverages. Come for breakfast, lunch, happy hour or dinner and you'll... More

We ate here for dinner on a Friday night. The drinks were great, the food was excellent and there was live music. It was on the pricey side but we enjoyed this experience very much.
