“Great for socializing outdoors or enjoying amazingly delicious steak or seaford. During the warmer month, ask to sit upstairs outdoors for a great water view. During the peak season, the outdoor bar has live music with outdoor seating as well for cocktails and conversation. There's also a water taxi to take you across to Rumba - another great dinner and bar spot! They are .9 miles away from the Inn.”

Art Gallery
“Great side trip especially on a rainy day. If you are interested in art and art history this is a nice diversion - stop for lunch and shopping in Amagansett or East Hampton afterwards. Be sure to check the hours - as they are limited.”

Caribbean Restaurant

“Really good Carribean food with outdoor water seating. This is a smaller restaurant, so plan to arrive early or have a cocktail at the bar till your table is ready. During the season, this is a fun spot for music. The water taxi here takes you across to Cowfish, another fun dinner spot with seasonal outdoor music at the bar. They are 1.2 miles away from the Inn.”
