    This is a great place in the Hamptons. Very real and unpretentious. Service was wonderful and attentive. Basic food is excellent: burgers, salads, sandwiches, etc. And the ambience is really pleasant, mixing the virtues of a good restaurant, a sports bar and friendly pub. Highly recommended!

    We arrived early and the staff accommodated us with early seating. Then we added two more to our table and that was no problem for them. They were out of some of the specials, which was disappointing, but the food was very good. Will definitely return!!!

    Had a reservation - booth was very tight with plywood attached to back of booth - on other side of room there was no plywood. Very very noisy. Ordered a burger - it arrived barely cooked and cold. I didn’t send back because I didn’t want to hold up others at my table. Had a similar experience 6 months ago. Cold potato side. I have eaten at this location many times and up until this past year have had favorable experiences. Change of ownership? The waiter and other service people were outstanding. Need to pay attention on the kitchen and what’s coming out of there.
