Great local spot with terrific food!! A true beachy feel with local bar crowd, tear around. Easily accessible, good parking. Bring your boat and tie up.

I really want to love this place, but the food is consistently terrible. However, the location is great and the bar a lot of fun, so it gets three stars instead of just two.

This is a great stopping place between NYC and the Hamptons. Since it changed ownership sever a years ago it has improved markedly. The service is friendly and for the most part professional--at least the waiters (not the bus staff). the menu is more varied than under previous ownership and the food is very good. Recently we have been pleased... More

Rather than eating before we left Sag Harbor, we decided to stop here on the way home. The restaurant is just off Rt 27 right before it becomes a highway as you leave the Hamptons. We were given a friendly greeting and choice of tables, we chose to sit at the window overlooking the water and were treated to the... More

The ambiance is LACKING. UNCOMFORTABLE tables and the lighting is off as well. Food is what you would expect

Been eating here for over 30 years. It's just not the same anymore. Food was average. Ribs were very fatty. Sauce was nothing special. Other dinners were not that good. Service was bad and slow and it was not crowded. Atmosphere is still the same but I need good food to enjoy a restaurant. We'll keep our memories and move... More

I really wanted to love this place, because I came here a few times as a little kid and this was my first time back in 20 or so years, and there is also a shortage of dining options in the area. The location is nice on the water, and at first the place has a laid back casual seaside... More

Love the feel here- very casual, down to earth, family atmosphere place along the water. Service is very casual. View of dock and some fish jumping around in the water. Plenty of outdoor space, screened in, and indoor. With that being said, it is a place to go to have some lobster and beers. If that's what you are looking... More

We've gotten the SPLAT for years. then had a ten year break and now we're back to try it again. For those who don't know, the Splat is the steamed shellfish platter-2 whole lobsters, king crab, shrimp, clams, steamers and mussels with potatoes and mixed vegetables to share for 2. It's a huge amount of food for 2 people. It's... More
