Dined with friends while taking a leisurely Saturday drive from the city to Montauk. Stopped in around 6:30 PM for dinner and The establishment was packed. We ordered several appetizers and mains. The calamari was tasteless and just about the worst I've had. The ceaser salad was delicious and inventive however. My main pasta was undercooked and had huge sections of half cooked pasta stuck together. Totally unappetizing and unacceptable. The service was really poor - our server rarely came by, took an hour to take our order, forgot to bring us water and more water several times, didn't bring us utensils, tried removing our food before we were finished eating!

I would never come back here... Quite a disappointing experience, both in terms of food and service.

Great location right in the middle of town. Simple but lean design. Great for both couples and families with kids. Hospitbale, low key and good food. No reservations though.

Went with several friends after the movie. No reservation. We're seated right away. Busy bar scene but we preferred the back room. Their regular $31. steak is on special every Wednesday night during the winter for $19. Delicious prime steak served 3 ways. I had the herbed steak with the roasted brussell sprouts. My friends all had it with arugula salad and truffle oil. All loved our choices. A great winter special in East Hampton.

My husband and I go quite often. We usually sit by the bar, watch sports on their 3 large TVs, drink and eat. The food is fabulous no matter what you eat. From salads to pastas to fishes to meats to pizzas. The bartenders are great and friendly especially JJ. He always remembers what we drink and usually has it ready by the time we sit down. An overall great experience each and every time we go. We love this place!
