“Great place to dine with a loved one”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

This is on the "walk" in Sag Harbor. A quaint and beautiful village on Long Island. It is one of my favorite of the Hamptons. Having a quiet dinner for two is perfect here.

“Expensive but worth it!”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Unlike some other reviews, we had great, friendly service. Richard, the owner/maitre'd, couldn't have been nicer as was our server from Columbia, Andrew. Fresh oysters, a lovely arugla salad, delicious rack of lamb and the best duck we've had, rounded out by an out-of-this-world macadamia nut torte. It's a splurge, but if you can afford it, do it.

“Great food in a beautiful atmosphere.”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

While staying in Sag Harbor we went to The American Hotel for dinner. We didn't have a reservation so stepped to the bar to wait for a table. Wow, wow, wow. Great wines by the glass with wonderful people watching and while there is not a cocktail menu, they will make anything you want. Then on to dinner! The four of us all had seafood dishes and they did not disappoint. Everyone should try this Sag Harbor classic.
