Went for Sunday lunch/brunch. There was a 35 minute wait so we went upstairs to the bar. Must have been a quick influx of people. With only the bartender there serving the tables and the bar, it took quite a while before we even got a menu to look at. They finally got someone else up there to help and we got our drinks. Our apps came out quickly once we could order. They opened up the outside dining deck so agreed to take a table out there even though it was a bit cool and rainy. After we ordered food, they brought plates and silverware some of which we needed to replaced as they were not clean. Again, food arrived quickly and was very good. The burgers were large and filling and the brunch food was great. So, a couple of minor hiccups in the service area but otherwise a great place for a moderately priced meal.

Had a wonderful dinner with family. Our server, Allegra was attentive and very pleasant. The kale salad was delicious. The salmon and scallop dinners were flavorful and perfectly cooked. We had a wonderful window seat with a beautiful view. The only downside to our whole dining experience was the music. When we first arrived it was so loud we couldn’t even hear each other talk. Someone must have complained because they eventually lowered it a little but then I noticed it would get louder and then lower, and then louder again. The genre of music being played would’ve been perfect for their lively outdoor bar scene. I would’ve enjoyed a more mellow and a much quieter musical experience while dining indoors. My dad had warned me that it was a very loud restaurant. He was right.

Last night we had dinner at this waterside restaurant. First they do not have a corkage fee for your first bottle of wine so that was a welcome surprise! Second all the appetizers, entrees, and dessert we order were very good! For appetizers we ordered the Cornbread (a must) and the Brussel Sprouts. For entrees we ordered the Scallops, Ribs, and Buffalo Shrimp. Again all very excellent! For dessert we finished up with Banana Cream Pie. Again this was a winner! If you want a casual place for dinner that offers great food with excellent service that also has a beautiful view you’ve found it!

This is a fabulous value with a great atmosphee and great tasting food. It is off the beaten track and right on the water with a marina. We saw several tables with very small children so it must be family friendly. Great staff. Nice choices on the menu. The signature hamburger is like a spare tire and tastes out of this world. Good clam chowder and a nice assortment of reasonably priced LI wines to choose from. Just what I needed after battling endlessly insane traffic.

Went here for lunch on 4/9/2018 with my wife. The place was empty. The service was just ok. The views from the restaurant were very nice, right on the water. As for the food it was well prepared and tasted very good. I had the ribs and my wife had a shrimp dish. As for the price... keep in mind your in the Hamptons.
