“When you want a great hot dog or sandwich”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2012

Sip n Soda is a great spot for breakfast or lunch if you want something way better than fast food. Wait staff is good. Atmosphere is nostalgic. Menu is traditional diner. Hot dogs are great. Ice cream is the best. It's where we go when we go for lunch. The best.

“You got to Love it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2012

As for the long lines, and the wait, it's well worth it. Some of the best ice cream around, and candy from when even I was a kid. You have to try it!

“Part of the real Southampton experience....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2012

If you haven't been to Sip N Soda...you haven't really experienced the real Southampton. A mainstay in the fabric of local Southampton life for more than 50 years. I remember watching them dig the foundation for Sip N Soda and from the day they opened their doors till today and every day in between two brothers made this more than just an ice cream and hamburger stop, it was their home and yours too. Over the years more business and politics have been conducted over fresh coffee and their breakfasts specials, if those plates could only talk. In the early days teenagers' books would be piled high in front of the restaurant as it was the place to go for "Cherry cokes, the perfect french fries and a hamburger." I see many of those teenagers, now grandparents at Sip N Soda with their grandchildren enjoying the same meal. Locals and summer visitors alike have enjoyed the consistently creamy quality of their home made ice cream for generations. Everyone who goes to Sip N Soda can recite in a heart beat what their favorite meal is...and I am no exception. For me.... tuna fish on rye toast with a slice of tomato, a sprinkle of pepper and hold the lettuce, a side of their amazing french fries (I know I shouldn't but I can't resist) a cream soda and a scoop of orange sherbet and a scoop of vanilla (a creamsicle without the stick) in the same little silver dishes I have been enjoying for years...no cone for me...'cause I am dieting! The flavor and quality of my favorite meal has never changed over the years. I am sure you would hear this same statement over and over. Sip N Soda is still owned by the same two brothers and although like everyone else the generations have added to the new faces on both sides of the counter, the same service, quality of food and atmosphere has never changed. There is a certain comfort when stepping into Sip N Soda weather you are a local or summer visitor knowing that your favorite flavor of food or ice cream will always be waiting for you. If you are new to Southampton, make Sip N Soda a "must stop" because your new favorite flavor is waiting to be discovered.

“There's no place like Sip's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

Age is irrelevant. So is wealth, social standing and title. Whether you're priceless or a princess, everyone gets the same greeting and friendly service at Sip 'n Soda in Southampton Village. The burgers haven't changed since I was a kid and that's really saying something. But it's the unique things about Sip 'n Soda's menu that makes them memorable. Like Lime Rickey's...which you can only get "in season"...not "lime season", but summer season, from Memorial Day to Labor Day. And how about the homemade ice cream with fresh fruit flavors at the height of peach season in August. It's just like homemade! Kids and adults alike love the grilled hot dogs and where have you dined out on a grilled cheese sandwich and fried? At Sip's, of course. Best time to go? During the week when the "Bridge & Tunnel" crowd has gone home. Don't forget their breakfast, too. It's when our local politicians meet to discuss current "affairs".
