I will never go back. The manager is belligerent.
The restaurant was good enough for our group. With the shortage of staff that everyone is experiencing, it was not surprising that things were not perfect. We had a shrimp cocktail incident where a full shrimp cocktail was dropped on one of our guests. The cocktail sauce just missed two people in our group. Fortunately, it was a relatively minor incident. Unfortunately, there was no effort made by management to handle the situation gracefully. There was actually no acknowledgement. At least they didn’t charge us. The waiter took it upon himself to comp our drinks.
All in all, it was a reasonably good evening, but it was our group that made that happen.
The meal could feed a party of 4, and we were just 2. It was Pasta Night so we ordered from that menu. Very clean, waitstaff friendly and nice family atmosphere.
The food was excellent. Fresh, plentiful and good value.
The service was terrific.
Busy restaurant that still manages to deliver great food and service!!
We were a party of four -two enjoyed burgers, one had shrimp fajitas and one had chicken Milanese. All very good. Service was exceptional!
Great dinners! The specials here never disappoint! The mahi-mahi and chicken Milanese were delicious and reasonably priced for this area! One of our favorite places!!!
Dowling's is a very popular spot for locals and tourists. It is a friendly, welcoming restaurant. All the food on the menu is delicious and reasonably priced.
The special s of the day are a tremendous bargain. We enjoyed a Caesar salad, salmon and cheesecake for $29. The slice of salmon was huge and the presentation lovely with spinach and ratatouille.
Best buy in Sag Harbor and delicious food.
It is reliably good food, with good service in a comfortable setting. We sat outside in the garden fir the first time and it was very very nice.
Perfect for what it tries to be: a real sports bar with solid sports bar food at a very reasonable price (for the Hamptons).
Great food, nice staff and service
We definitely will be back
Great food, friendly staff. We sat outdoors with kids and this became a surprising Open Table find. Perfect for what we needed. Will return.
Great menu and the food is always good. Parking can get tight when it’s busy. One of our go to joints in the Hamptons
Great local pub. Food is consistently good as well as the service from provided by friendly competent staff that have worked there for some time. Great Fajitas, burgers, gyros, nachos and pizza.

Excellent food and awesome service. Definitely go back
Friendly atmosphere with great service and food.
Great neighborhood spot. Friendly attentive staff, good food at reasonable prices.
My group and I dined twice in one week. Two different waiters were both attentive and patient. All of us were happy with our meals and we had a variety of salads, appetizers. and entrees. Also, it the hamburger was the best I’ve ever had anywhere.reasonably priced too. A pleasure.
Food good. Very slow service, we believe the waiter was stretched beyond his capacity. He was very nice and accommodating, but way to stretched.
Wasn’t happy with paying for refill of seltzer, but given it is during the pandemic. We will give it a pass.
Food was simple but tasty, atmosphere outside was lovely, service was great.
Good food, reasonable prices, nice outdoor patio with tables well spaced. Some noise from road traffic but due to spacing other customers aren't a disturbance.
YUM! My favorite place for a burger and a beer on a fabulous weekend.
