Stopped here due to the reviews and the fact we had our little 4.3 pound dog and they had wonderful outside seating overlooking the canal & marinas. Food was good, service was fine, overall a quite nice experience.

This is small restaurant and bar on the Shinnecock canal. It views are excellent as is the food and drinks, recommend the Gardiners lemonade and rum punch. All the food is excellent and so are the bartenders. Don't miss this place!
