Bell & Anchor was impressive.
They greeted us like we were rock stars the ambiance was electric. You would have thought it was the middle of summer the place was so busy.
The maître D Max was professional and accommodating and helped us select a nice Champage . I don’t drink Prosecco it gives me a headache. We were seated after a little wait to a nice table overlooking the bay as the sun went down . I was not familiar with the oyster selection but our waitress introduced us to Montauk Pearls which were fantastic . A rare kind of oyster that only a hand full of restaurants have in the US. We are glad Bell & Anchor are one of the chosen few.
Our Maître D helped us select the perfect bottle of wine with our meal : Julien Cruchandeau Savigny Les Beaune 2015. Never heard about this producer but this wine was impressive and fantastic with our meal what a lovely Pinot Noir from France.
My wife and I both had the Scottish salmon absolutely fabulous just like the English TV Show.
The coffe is the goodnight of the restaurant and the coffee was as good as my little independent Barrista prepares back in Portland .
We will be back.
Thank you Bell & Anchor !!!!!

Disappointing 2nd visit to B&A. We felt gipped, even by Hamptons' standards. The $12 appetizer caesar salad was described as having anchovies, but there were none. We were told "it's in the dressing." No taste of anchovy. Misleading menu - write "anchovy dressing" not "anchovies" if you are just putting flavoring in the dressing. Frito misto was small portion and nothing special. I had enjoyed the lobster garganelli immensely the first time I came, but this time I felt like there was incredibly little lobster for a $38 pasta dish. Like, I kept fishing around wondering if I was just missing the lobster part. $38 for pasta and a lobster claw. Wow. The quality of the food is generally very good. I could write sonnets about the butter that comes with the bread. If you don't care about the "value for your money" piece and you like a lively atmosphere, you may like it. The location is lovely and the valet parking a perk. I am a foodie and eat at lots of places in NYC and elsewhere and do not mind spending a good amount of money for a good meal. But when I feel like I'm being had, you've lost me forever.

We had a very good dinner. On Sundays they have oysters for $1 each. I then had the prix fixe dinner. I chose the Caesar salad and the moules frites. Both were delicious.

Great birthday dinner. The Wednesday night lobster specials can't be beat. So fortunate the birthday fell on Wednesday.☺️🎉 My whole steamed lobster was not as tender as on previous occasions but still tasty and the sides (fingerling potatoes and haricots very) were delicious! Husband had the cod which he loved. Friend had lobster garganelli. She was impressed that it was not glue-y which often happens with creamy pasta sauces. It was her first time at the restaurant and she is looking forward to going back. We all had a different desserts and they were all good. The management was nice enough to comp a dessert for the birthday boy. All in all, a terrific meal. It was relatively quiet which we much enjoyed.

My favorite restaurant in Sag Harbor for sure and one of the best in the Hamptons. Excellent delicious food, always great ingredients, generous portions, wonderful attentive service. I'm always pleased by the overall experience. Since I'm rather particular and often disappointed by restaurants - my review makes Bell & Anchor stands out even more.

This is one of our neighborhood go to restaurants.....reliable for anything from fresh seafood to a burger. It is consistently reliable though not very exciting. The menu varies very little with the seasons or year to year. The people couldn't be nicer or more helpful. The tables are comfortable...noise level can get loud as this popular restaurant fills up.
