About

Summer in the Hamptons means warm air, waterfront activities and great food. Bay Kitchen Bar, rated "Excellent" by The New York Times has it all. The latest venture from chef/owner Eric Miller (of Food & Co and Miller's BBQ fame) and co-owner Richard Silver. The restaurant offers awe-inspiring sunset views, indoor/outdoor seating, marina access for boaters and, of course, great food. Eric Miller will rely on his relationships with local fishermen and baymen to source the best possible quality ingredients.

Sample menu items include a raw bar menu with local oysters and littleneck clams and dishes such as day boat sea scallops, just-caught harbor fluke, Snake River Farm steak or our famous Lobster Roll. A series of public special events is in the works, including clambakes, BBQs and whole animal roasts in Miller's authentic Southern smoker.

Spectacular sunset view from the covered but open dining room. This is a real, seafood restaurant with excellent choices and variety of fresh fish, clams, mussels and lobster. This is a gem.

Only downside is that I found this gem on the last night of the season. Living in NYC I eat out way more than I would like to admit and can honestly say this is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. Ambience, service and food were spectacular. We were a party of 4. We all had seafood appetizers and seafood main dishes. I couldn't pick a favorite because everything was spectacular (nice problem to have)!

The food is always delicious, staff great but the evening we went - not so good. I have been there a number of times and always loved - the view, the scene, the food so I was disappointed that the host and our waiter were less than helpful - waited 20 minutes for a drink (I finally had to go up to the host and request a waiter) - no apologies from the waiter - nothing. Talk about setting the tone for the evening and that's the way it went! End of season blahs?

when i told the staff that the place was full of bugs (there were all over the ceiling they were dismissive and said the bugs congregated around the lights

the place is a rip off! $39 for a little plate of food

The food was very good, bartenders and servers were very attentive but the wait for the food was a little too long (the couple sitting next to us got up and walked out after waiting 30 minutes for their appetizer to show up) a little pricey but given the location it was expected, considering its the end of their season we tolerated the shortcomings.

Menu has been changed to eliminate some items and raised food price by 15 to 20% on all items except salads. Price increase does not correspond to quality and quantity of food, especially quality. Food what we ordered was blend and tasteless. Hope it was one off day for the chef. We will give another try hoping to see improvements on quality of food. Until then, will not recommend to any of our friends.

I find that on Mondays and Tuesday's the food is not consistent with what you would get on Thursday-Sunday. .
This is also typical with many other restaurants. It's possible the head chef is off those days!!!

What was to be our first wonderful dinner in East Hampton was far from nice. From the beginning the host was rude, we asked to be seated at another table, he replied NO and dropped the menus on the table and walked off. So for the next hour and a half I was bumped into no less than 50 times by guests and staff as we were stuck at the worst table in the restaurant. The totally hyped out waiter was only interested in turning his tables as fast as possible, rushing us at every turn. Our appetizer had not even been cleared when the entrees arrived. For dessert, he fired off the list of options expecting us to immediately decide and when I asked for a list he acted put out. You had to beg to get your water glass refilled and the bread is generic. Really disgusting when you are dropping easily $250 a couple, thinking you are going to have a relaxing upscale fine dining experience. The service was the equivalent you would get at a local diner. The food was not bad but totally overshadowed by the rest of the experience. If you are looking for a restaurant with lots of arrogance and attitude, horrible service with OK food and a nice view then this is your place. But trust me, you can definitely do far better than this and we would never in good faith recommend this place. At the most maybe get a drink at the bar for sunset and then go elsewhere!

My friends and I have been dining here since it opened. Yes, the food is consistently delicious, however the service has really declined. I made friends with some of the very professional staff over the 3 years it's been opened. I was looking forward to going back not only for the fantastic food, but to see these people I had befriended. Much to our dismay, they have left BBK.

We now know why they left. Same owners, different waitstaff...the only issue...it seems that they have done their best to hire everyone under the age of 25. They need much more training on how to take orders, clear tables and not to throw utensils down on the table. Trust me, my friends and I are not hard to please, but until the service improves with ppl that actually care about their customers feeling like an $18 crab cake appetizer is not just a crab cake, there may be no reason to return for dinner. The bar is great for sunsets and cocktails.

Have been to this restaurant several times. Prior to this was last summer on a Saturday of 4th of July week and the staff could not manage the crowd. Food has always been superior but service then was really bad. This time our experience was absolutely perfect and fully redeemed our patronage and accolades! Very glad we gave this another chance.

Give zero regard to food allergies. We left without eating anything because we were served food that could not be consumed. The hostess was awful. Made us wait over an hour for our table when other people who came in after us were seated before us. I would never recommend this restaurant to someone.

The view was beautiful. Hostess was very kind. Our waitress was horrible. She asked for our orders without telling us the specials. She never gave us bread or refilled our water. Our entrees took 30 minutes to come after our appetizers. The octopus was burned and frito mis to was over-fried. When I asked why we didn't get bread her response was "that's a good question" and nothing more. Bad experience.

Drinks watered down and warm. Waited too long for replacement. Food not warm and lobster dried out. Service was too fast for apps and mains. Felt like a dinner. Server brought food and left without giving utensils. I won't go back.
