Food and service were excellent. Window shop for boats while you wait. Summer mule Es refreshing. Calamari was good and very fresh. Broth with the mussels was amazing. Tuna dish was good as well - very large serving.

Great year round spot! Solid bar service with excellent cocktails. Outside seating on the deck overlooking beautiful Hamptons Watercraft Marina & the Shinnecock Canal. Consistent quality food with daily fresh caught seafood. Best lobster roll on the east end!
