Beautiful out door seating, or while waiting for a table. Great food with a varied menu. Great wine and drinks, a bit noisy inside, so I prefer outside only.

The food at Edgewater is of very high quality and (for the Hamptons) fairly reasonably priced. They have a 2 for 1 deal from 5-7PM, so the place fills up fairly early, at least in the winter. Service could not have been better. Nothing revolutionary...More
