We have been coming to Sunset Beach, on Shelter Island, for several years (while renting houses in other villages of the Hamptons) mainly for drinks while enjoying the beautiful sunsets. It is a must see part of Long Island and the hotel/restaurant feels like you are in the south of France. It is a popular spot making people watching an interesting experience. On our most recent visit, we decided to stay for dinner. It was a warm and humid night and, as all the restaurant levels/areas are open- air, there is no air-conditioning. We were seated in the lower level dining room which does not have cross ventilation so it was particularly hot. We waited quite a while for a waiter to take our drink order and then another long while for our meal order. Although we asked for more water, the busboys were slow or remiss to refill. At one point, my husband got up and retrieved a pitcher of water from the bar himself. We were parched. Our waiter was brusque. The food is good but overpriced as are most restaurants in the Hamptons in the summer. However, for the price, diners should expect good service and we were very disappointed in this respect.
