“Great summer spot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

This is a great spot for lunch or dinner. Great for having girls day out or date night. Love the atmosphere very up beat. Staff was very friendly. I highly recommend the lobster roll it was fresh and full of flavor. Best lobster roll I ever had. Love love loved it! The burgers were tasty and juicy nice and big. Can't wait to go back !

“Lunch in the Hamptons”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

What can I say.. This restaurant has the best of everything, Location,( quaint little village with local fare) atmosphere( I sat out in their courtyard surrounded by pots of Hibiscus and trellises of beautiful vine flowers) great service with a smile and then the food! I had a healthy lunch that was very tasteful and satisfying. My friends let me taste their lobster roll which was the best I have Ever tasted. From their outside bar I was served the most amazing concoction. It was a frozen combination of a piña colada AND a mojito if you can imagine!!!! Now this is a drink for those of
Us who cannot make up our minds and love both of these . Well amazing and addicting is what I call it.. First sip and I immediately knew I was having another!

“Smart cafe/informal restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013 via mobile

Seating in x2 separate areas - we chose to sit outside at back. Front end of restaurant more Bistro-ish & outside rear more terrace-like. Suited to children, as plenty in there at time quietly dining, otherwise unaware. Meals moderately priced for the area. Clam chowder nice, but a bit salty. Burger fine, but lacked extra touches, pasta dish ok and fish dish fine, but rice accompanying it seemed mushy. Good atmosphere and attentive staff. Toilets accessed down steps.

“Think average "diner".”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2013 via mobile

This is a restaurant that has a very nice athmosphere is you are looking to have a quick lunch. It has a nice dehors in the back as well as 2 tables on Jobs Lane.
Service is friendly and kind.
However, do not expect anything amazing. Think "diner"!
I would compare it to a Friendly's in the 80s... in Southampton!
This should describe the food and give you an idea of what to expect.
