1. Dave's Grill

468 West Lake Drive
Montauk, NY 11954
(631) 668-9190
Visit Website

A contender for all around best restaurant in the Hamptons, the lobster pasta and lobster roll are absolutely killer, but don't turn your back on even simple stuff like their chopped salad, either. The food is good enough to make the somewhat cheesy digs charming. And know the system: reservation line opens for same-day-only reservations at 4:15 PM sharp.

2. The Hideaway

This unmarked Mexican joint is a little bit insidery and the food is a little bit mediocre, but the setting is fantastic. The drinks are strong and the big screen TVs are always tuned to sports, which make it a great place to have tacos and watch a Saturday afternoon Yankee game.

3. The Clam Bar

Clam Bar is the truth. The post-beach lobster roll with fries and a beer is the reason we come to the Hamptons.

4. Crow's Nest

4 Old West Lake Dr
Montauk, NY 11954
(631) 668-4483
Visit Website

Rosé-and-a-blanket service is available for lounging on the lawn, which may turn it into Cyril's for adults. Independent of that, and forgiving them for a horrendous 5x mark-up on $12 Wolffer rosé, meals here are refreshingly light and rarely disappoint.

5. Nick & Toni's

Copy Link
136 N Main St
East Hampton, NY 11937
(631) 324-3550
Visit Website

It can be punishingly sceney during high season, but there is a reason Nick & Toni's is so hard to get into. Pastas are consistently great, but so is the rest. And if all else fails, there is no disappointment in store from the fried zucchini chips and a roast chicken.

6. Rowdy Hall

Copy Link
10 Main Street
East Hampton, NY 11937
(631) 324-8555
Visit Website

Known for the “Rowdy Burger,” this French bistro has been a favorite of locals and out-of-towners for quite some time now. The atmosphere is low-key, the beer selection is solid and the menu is varied enough that everyone can find something they like.

7. The Living Room

Copy Link
207 Main St
East Hampton, NY

We don’t know what we like more about this restaurant, the food or the décor. The Scandinavian cuisine is consistently good, but it’s hard not to let the expertly curated photography that hangs on the walls steal your attention. Even the bathrooms are fun to look at.

8. East Hampton Grill

99 Main St
East Hampton, NY
(631) 329-6666

Some might bemoan that a chain—it’s part of the Hillstone Group—has infiltrated the Hamptons dining scene, but we’ve yet to have a bad experience at the former home to Della Femina’s. The staff is knowledgeable (if a but Stepford Wivesish), the bar is always busy and the food never disappoints.

9. Round Swamp Farm

184 Three Mile Harbor Rd
East Hampton, NY 11937
(631) 324-4438
Visit Website

If you can tolerate the less-than-ideal parking situation and cramped quarters, you’ll be rewarded with some of our favorite baked goods on the East End. Their pies—especially those with the crumb topping—are always a crowd favorite.

10. The 1770 House

Copy Link
143 Main St
East Hampton, NY 11937
(631) 324-1770
Visit Website

The Hamptons are chock full of high-end restaurants for your to get your grub on, but only 1770 House’s downstairs tavern is an absolute must. It’s an intimate atmosphere with low ceilings, antique exposed beams and a truly killer burger.

11. Southampton Publick House

Copy Link
40 Bowden Sq
Southampton, NY 11968
(631) 283-2800
Visit Website

If craft beer is your thing, Southampton’s Publick House should probably be on your to-do list. Though they lost their long-time brewmaster before the season, his replacement promises to bring the same quality to his buzz-inducing suds.

12. Wolffer Estate Vineyard

Copy Link
139 Sagg Rd
Sagaponack, NY 11962
(631) 537-5106
Visit Website

If you haven’t had their rosé, where the hell have you been? It’s basically a staple of everyone’s diet during the summer months. And if you haven’t checked out their Winestand for a Sunset Friday, we suggest you do so with a quickness before they shut it down for the season.

13. Marders Bee Cafe

Copy Link
120 Snake Hollow Rd.
Bridgehampton, NY 11932

When Charlie Marder and his wife, Kathleen, opened this garden store more than three decades ago, could they have foreseen a future in which they'd traffic in trees larger than some in Central Park? No matter. If gardening speaks to your soul, you'll want to speak to the Marders.

14. Sag Harbor Variety Store

Copy Link
45 Main St
Sag Harbor, NY 11963
(631) 725-9706
Visit Website

A throwback to the days of five-and-dimes, this store is filled with amazing, nostalgic-but-worthwhile rainy day things like puzzles, Scrabble, butterfly nets, sewing kits, rope bracelets, Radio Flyer wagons and penny candy.

15. Sloppy Tuna

Copy Link
148 S Emerson Ave
Montauk, NY 11954
(631) 647-8000
Visit Website

Some will undoubtedly question the Tuna’s inclusion on this list, but if you’re looking for a drunken good time, you really can’t beat Montauk’s only oceanfront bar. New for this season: They added a bar on the second floor so you can actually, you know, see the ocean. Pro tip: You may want to reconsider wearing designer duds if you’re planning on a visit. They don’t call it “sloppy” for nothing.

16. Naturopathica Spa

Copy Link
74 Montauk Hwy
East Hampton, NY 11937
(631) 329-2525
Visit Website

Because sometimes you need a vacation even while on vacation, this famed spa gets the job done better than anyone. We recommend their signature massage.

17. 18 Bay

Copy Link
23 North Ferry Rd.
Shelter Island, NY 11964
(631) 749-0053
Visit Website

Andre Balazs’ Sunset Beach may get all the press, but 18 Bay is the spot you really need to hit up if you’re looking to sample Shelter Island’s best cuisine. The $50 tasting menu changes weekly (sometimes daily) depending on what’s available at local markets.

18. Main Beach

Copy Link
104 Ocean Ave
East Hampton, NY 11937
(631) 324-8158
Visit Website

Parking may be an issue, but there’s a reason why this beach is always packed: It’s absolutely gorgeous. If you’re looking to avoid the crowds, we recommend going early in the morning when it’s generally empty. It’s not very often that you get to enjoy one of the nicest stretches of sand in the country all to yourself.

19. Stephen Talkhouse

Copy Link
161 Main St
Amagansett, NY 11930
(631) 267-3117
Visit Website

While Montauk’s musical offerings have been on the rise the last few years, there’s really no beating The Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett for live tunes. The smallish venue packs some truly killer acts and has a sound system to match. Bon Jovi has been known to perform unannounced on more than a few occasions.

20. Red Horse Market

Copy Link
74 Montauk Hwy
East Hampton, NY 11937
(631) 324-9500
Visit Website

The new store brings together a trio of three distinct, yet complementary, enterprises: Pasquale's Homemade Deli and Pizzeria, Tim's Prime Meats & Seafood, and a bakery from William Bertha, formerly of Gurney's Inn's Beach Bakery.

21. Bobby Van's Steakhouse

Copy Link
2393 Montauk Hwy
Bridgehampton, NY 11963
(631) 537-0590
Visit Website

Some may rave about the Palm’s steakhouse classics, but our beef-loving vote goes to Bobby Van’s in Bridgehampton. Not only is their filet mignon enough for two people, but they’ve got a lunch menu that’s worth checking as well. And if you’re there on the weekends, they also offer French toast and pancakes…an excellent cure for the common hangover.

22. Montauket

Copy Link
88 Firestone Rd
Montauk, NY 19954
(631)668-5992

One of the remaining bastions of old Montauk, this run-down but charming hotel is on the market for just under $15M. Better make your way here for sunset drinks before this tradition slips into the past and you find yourself looking at another cocktail list with $18 mojitos.

23. Cyril's Fish House

Copy Link
2167 Montauk Hwy
Amagansett, NY 11930
(631) 267-7993
Visit Website

Sure, parking here is a headache bordering on dangerous, but there’s a reason why Cyril’s Fish House is overrun every weekend during the summer months. Namely, their signature drink: The BBC…Bailey’s Banana Colada. Just make sure to look both ways when crossing Montauk Highway.

24. Stone Creek Inn

Copy Link
405 Montauk Hwy
East Quogue, NY 11942
(631) 653-6770

A former Victorian speakeasy happens to offer one of the best fine dining experiences on the East End. The French-Mediterranean menu conjured by the very talented chef Christian Mir (who co-owns the inn with his wife, Elaine) does not disappoint.

25. La Capannina Restorante & Pizzeria

Copy Link
364 Montauk Hwy
Wainscott, NY 11975
(631) 537-2626
Visit Website

While Sag Harbor’s Conca D’Oro topped our reader poll for the area’s best pizza, we’re huge fans of the slice being sold at La Capinnina in Wainscott. Sadly, they don’t offer delivery and getting in and out of the parking lot can be tricky, but trust us, it’s worth the trip.

26. Sag Harbor Cinema

Copy Link
90 Main Street
Sag Harbor, NY 11963
(631) 725-0010

While we enjoy a good summer blockbuster as much as the next, our love of film takes us to Sag Harbor’s theatre over and over again. Featuring limited release movies, the small, run-down theatre is a must for anyone who considers him or herself a cinephile.

27. Little Red

From the owners of the Red Bar Brasserie is this more casual dining option near Agawam Park. Solid food, nice atmosphere...you can't ask for much else.

28. BookHampton

We love a good independent bookstore and Bookhampton fits the bill quite nicely with expertly curated and staffed locations.

29. Longhouse Reserve

Copy Link
133 Hands Creek Rd
East Hampton, NY 11937

If you've never been, we highly recommend checking it out this 16-acre sculpture garden/nature preserve/art installation. It's definitely worth the $10 ($8 for seniors) admission price.

30. Murf's Backstreet Tavern

Copy Link
64 Division St.
Sag Harbor, NY 11963
(631) 725-8355

This is THE best dive bar in the Hamptons. End of story. Go there after 2am for the most interesting mix of people you're likely to see east of the canal.

31. Suki Zuki

Copy Link
688 Montauk Hwy
Water Mill, NY 11976
(631) 726-4600

For an area known for the quality of its seafood, there aren't many decent sushi spots to be found...save for Water Mill's Suki Zuki. The service could be better, but the food is worth the wait.

32. Guild Hall

Copy Link
158 Main St
East Hampton, NY 11937
(631) 324-0806
Visit Website

A visit to the Hamptons isn't complete until you've checked out at least one of Guild Hall's offerings. From movie screenings to art sales to speakers to exhibits...GH has got you covered when it comes to getting cultured.

33. Bay Street Theatre

Copy Link
1 Bay St
Sag Harbor, NY 11963
(631) 725-9500

For a while, locals were worried that the Bay Street Theatre would have to leave its home on...well...Bay Street. Fortunately, the landlord was amenable and the Sag Harbor institution is slated to remain for the next decade. In the off season, look for their dinner and a movie deal with The American Hotel...one of our favorite prix fixes in the area.

34. Pollock-Krasner House

Copy Link
830 Springs Fireplace Road
East Hampton, NY 11937-1512

Here in Springs, north of the bustle of East Hampton proper, artist Jackson Pollock and his wife, Lee Krasner, set up shop. In the summer, this legendary homestead is usually open to the public on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, but check hours before making the trek.

35. Fish Farm

Copy Link
429 Cranberry Hole Rd
Amagansett, NY 11930

There are fresh fish markets across the East End... and then there's this truly remarkable spot, nestled among the Napeague dunes. Amidst the rotting industrial warehouses, chicken coops, and man-made pools, you'll find some of the freshest fish to be had anywhere.

36. Tate's Bake Shop

Copy Link
43 N Sea Rd
Southampton, NY 11968
(631) 283-9830

Not just for the iconic cookies—the pies and cakes are equally worth breaking your diet over.

37. Mary's Marvelous

The lines can be long and the prices high, but the sandwiches, baked goods and drinks make it all worthwhile.

38. ???

111 Shelter Island Avenue
Sag Harbor, NY 11963

To avoid another situation like the one Indian Wells has been facing this summer, we’re keeping the whereabouts of this stretch of sand to ourselves. It’s serene, offers some truly gorgeous sunsets, and is generally devoid of people. Montauk? Amagansett? Easthampton or South? We’ll never tell.
