The American Hotel is one of the few historic hotels remaining in the United States. Here, visitors can come and visit and take a trip back in time to the mid-1920s when smoking rooms and jackets were commonplace among velvet furniture and strong whiskey served on the rocks. During the summertime.
Of course, The American Hotel is more than just a hotel, it houses an excellent restaurant as well. There are multiple dining areas depending on what kind of experience guests are looking for. The Main Dining Room is a lively and rambunctious room that holds about 80 people while the Drew Room is a quieter, more private area for those looking for an intimate evening. The food is quintessential American cuisine from across the United States.

For a romantic night out, American Hotel is unsurpassed on the South Fork. Food, ambience, wine list are all top shelf. Yeah, it’s pricey, but a delightful experience is delivered consistently, which to my way of thinking makes it all worth it

Weekend away during COVID. Food was delish: veal chops, lamb chop, steak au poivre, desserts (lemon mascarpone cheesecake and Reíne sabe). Cabbage side was perfectly cooked. And let’s not forget the croque monsieur. Yes...in two day stay at hotel, we ate there four times. Or typical of us, but the good was that good!

We sat in the back garden. Tables are well spaced, heat lamps helped, but be sure your feet are well insulated.
Food was delicious and Dennis was an excellent server.

Always enjoy coming here for a well executed classic line up. However, was very disappointed that after explicitly booking the table by the fireplace, it was given away because I came in 8 minutes after my booking time (when standard restaurant practice is to hold a table for 15 mins).

American hotel is one of my favorite restaurants. I was super excited to spend my anniversary there.
The service was good, waitress nice but certainly wasn’t amazing. When asked the different ways in which they prepare the flounder she gave a very short answer.
Ambiance never disappoints though.
My lobster came and was undercooked. Presentation was amazing but the fact that the chef and servers allowed an obviously undercooked lobster to be delivered to the table I think is awful. Totally fixable with a broiler but then I’m not eating with my husband....
They definitely need to up their game in the kitchen.

Sat on the back patio for lunch, it was all that I have come to expect from this place. Good service, good food, nice atmosphere. The ladies room was a mess but that is because people are slobs.
