Contemporary American
The primary and private dining rooms are located in the original first floor gathering spaces. The intimate restaurant deftly juxtaposes modern orange vinyl chairs with black and white portraits of Bridgehampton’s agrarian history, handblown glassware with delicate seasonal flowers. Featuring one-on-one service, the restaurant cozily seats 50 while offering a more relaxed atmosphere in the warm months on our private patio, which has been reconfigured to capture the beauty and peacefulness of our Inn’s garden.
Our thoughtfully playful dinner menus change bi-weekly, with the season, and feature the best available, locally-gathered ingredients. That means 800+ recipes a year - how exciting! Each week: the menu consistently serves a form of duck and fish, an iteration of the fritter - lobster, artichoke, zucchini - and our all-time favorite cheeses found at Loaves & Fishes Food Store on cheese stones.

For those returning guests— careful— very different menu and pricing. The roast chicken is now $39 and does not have any accompaniments on the plate. Estimate about a 40% price increase. Limited choices. Example no pasta or fish options on the night we went.

the food isn't always perfect but the dishes are always inventive and fun, a refreshing change from many more conservative restaurants that serve the same old, same old. The atmosphere is especially cozy and relaxed, with attentive but not intrusive service. A great place for meeting up with friends, or for a romantic fireside dinner.

I returned to the Hamtpons for a work project last week.
Friends & I met for supper at The Brisgehampton Inn.
It was divine.
Sybille Van Kempen, the Innkeeper was a marvelous host.
She warmly greeted us & excorted us to our table.
The diningroom was cozy (fire in the grate) , gorgeous wall color & lighting.
Chef Brian cooked us a marvelous dinner. The girls had the hamburger & it was swell.
I had 2 appetizers. We all shared a divine California Pinot Noir.
A really nice evening. Go!

Not very knowledgeable on the menus and selections be warned do not get the price fix unless you’re looking for tiny portions for a price that’s not worth it honestly a scam

It was our anniversary and we were looking for a romantic spot. We ordered Dewars Scotch to start after ten minutes they didn't carry that brand. The scotch menu had probably 25 different brands but no Seward or Johnie Walker. The menu was limited and the one item I ordered they were out of. Need I say more.

We have had good meals here before so perhaps this was an off night. The food was adequate - not inspiring and the portions were quite skimpy. Perhaps out of season the chef changes or standards slip a bit. We shall return as it is a lovely, cozy spot but next time will hope for a better meal.

We enjoyed our first visit to this beautiful spot with our friends that have been trying to get us to this restaurant for awhile. My husband and I became vegans in June, but there were many choices on the menu that fit into our new lifestyle choice. Ingredients were fresh, local, and beautifully presented. The salads were huge- only wish that I realized the portion was so large. The vegetable flat bread was a great choice to replace the Parker house rolls that they didn’t have that evening. Our friends recommended the rolls. I will share some pictures of a few dishes that our party had and enjoyed.

This was my second time taking my mother to the Bridgehampton Inn for a special occasion. The first time was brunch which enjoyed. This time it was a her birthday on the Sunday evening dinner over Labor Day weekend. We sat on the porch. The next table over was a group of 5 couples who clearly had a lot to drink and were very rowdy. They were each shouting to be heard over the others. After a while it was just too much - it was distracting and unpleasant. Nobody on the staff dared to ask them to quiet down even after we asked. (I can’t fault them so much because a big tip was coming from that table).

Much of the food was good. I especially enjoyed the corn chowder. the spicy margarita was very good. The mussels were pretty good and the baby lamb chops were just okay. But the food not good enough to overcome the ambiance which felt more like a TGIFridays than an elegant restaurant.

We decided against staying for dessert and went elsewhere.

I doubt we will be going back.

I recently ate at the Bridgehampton Inn with my husband and our son. Even though it was Labor Day weekend, it was not crowded or frenetic as so many restaurants out here would have been. We sat outside and had a very pleasant meal. We will definitely be back.

We have lived in Wardon Mill for four years now and believe it or not this was our first visit to the restaurant however, clearly it’s now up on our top three favorites in the area and will be coming back repeatedly

Great food, great atmosphere not a scene or a place where You have to wait on a ridiculous line for inferior food.

This is a place to go where you want to enjoy dinner, enjoy hearing the conversation at your table and enjoying great food

We sat in the covered area outside. The outside setting is very pretty with live piano music the night we were there. The piano player and her music choices were great. The food was very well done. The negatives: we could not order any specialty drinks even on a Friday night in the summer, and the service was on the slow side. All in all though, it was a very pleasant experience.

We keep coming back, which ought to tell you something. This time we dined outside on a perfect evening, and it could not have been nicer or more romantic, with a vocalist serenading us in the garden, no less! Food was good (our first time with the new “small plates” concept) and arrived as ordered. Service was unsteady: the usual bartender’s non-appearance had undermined the waitstaff’s equilibrium, for some reason.

What a disappointment! From the moment we sat down we were ignored. It took over 20 minutes to get some water. Bread came with an empty butter dish. Cocktails came half an hour later. I spoke with Ms. van Kempen, the restaurant's manager, in hopes of salvaging the evening, and she promptly ignored us, too. Don't bother with this place.

An uneven experience that started off poorly but ended up far better. We were left waiting at the front desk while the hostess (whom we learned later was probably the manager/owner?)attended to seating and table service issues for 10 minutes - maybe our first clue that something wrong was brewing - before mulling over seating options and finally seating us in the main dining room (the largest of many rooms in the restaurant and one fairly full, the others mostly empty). Then we sat ignored for at least 15 minutes before we saw her running by and said, hey no wait staff had stopped at our table yet for so much as water, much less anything else, and she said oops, I'll fix that. She didn't. Ten minutes more past and we grabbed another wait staff who looked like a food runner and asked for some attention. He brought back water, said he'd find a waitress, another long wait and he came back with a "we're short staff and no one is able to wait on us so I will". Thank god for some initiative.

So he took time to explain the menu - kind of a modified small plates approach - took orders for food and drink, warned us that the kitchen and bar were also overwhelmed and things might be slow. Happily, he overstated the problems with the back of the house and we were brought our drinks and food in timely fashion. The food was all very good, fresh, nicely composed, well prepared. Happy for that.

It's hard to understand how a restaurant can be so inadequately staffed for a Saturday night crowd, and how woefully they responded. We give kudos to the young man who stepped up and provided us very pleasant and attentive service, and we throw some shade at the rest of the wait staff who completely ignored our presence, running by our table without so much as a glance. No manager or senior person ever appeared again during the evening. So, our morale is, good food but boy they need help in running this place.

Service was not good. After we ordered, we waited for an hour before waiter finally came over and said kitchen was backed up and that they would be bringing our appetizers at the same time as our entrees. We told him we didn’t want that and to bring out the appetizers first. He said it was too late and that the food was already being plated. So we went from no food to having the table covered with plates.

No apologies were offered and nothing offered as a way of making amends (maybe a free dessert for the table?).

Very disappointing. Will never go back as there are too many other good restaurants that do a much better job

Service was not good. Everyone did not get there plates at same time for both appetizer course and entree. Had to wait until appetizer was brought to me before my wine was brought which I ordered prior to placing food order. Waitress did not show concern that this was happening. Food was very good and beautiful atmosphere. Quiet so you can have conversation in relaxing environment. It’s sad that we cannot expect great service during season in high end restaurants.
