This is the most casual place to eat in Ocean Beach. You sit outside on picnic tables in the sand and look out at the bay. The lobster special is the best value in Ocean Beach.

Reasonably priced meals in an expensive beach town. Picnic tables in the sand overlooking The Great South Bay. Lobster special is priced to enjoy. Bar food, burgers and ice cold drinks!! No reservations taken restaurant hidden behind the bar!!

This place is def under the radar of most of the visitors to FI. Once you head to the back, where you can watch the sunset and have a drink, you'll never want to leave. The other places on Ocean Beach are all overpriced and aren't even that good. Here you feel at home and you can really go back... More

Loved eating out on the deck overlooking the bay. The prices are reasonable, the food very fresh and the kitchen will customize. Loved the awesome sunsets over the Great South Bay!

While most of Fire Island's restaurants are over priced and not fine dining, at least here you get good value for your money. The lobster is steamed and sweet. The drinks are in good supply and if you sit on the outdoor patio you can watch the sun go down.

The lobster special can't be beat! You get a steamed lobster, corn on the cob and fries for $9.95. Go through the bar to the back patio. You can enjoy the boats going by, or watch a gorgeous sunset over the bay. Try the house drink...a zippy cooler ( stoly limon, cranberry juice, and 7-up) Yummy!

Ate lunch here on a Thursday afternoon. Good food, very good service and great view. We were reluctant to try it as I think it is same owner and perhaps same chef as Mathews where we ate two nights earlier and did not have great experience(see review). Well this was much better all around so perhaps we hit Mathews wrong... More
