Beach Hut at Meschutt Beach, Hampton Bays
Had dinner on Saturday at the Beach Hut at Meschutt Beach.
Great atmosphere! Good beer! Poor Service. Cold Food. Loud Music.
Suggestion: Stick with the beer and wine.
Stay away from the clam chowder. The chef probably lost the top of his salt shaker, since it was totally inedible.
We were a captive audience as we came by boat for a few days and the only other option was Tiderunners, which we did on Friday. Food was good, service was poor, prices were high.
We love Tiderunners; actually we've loved the location in all of its reincarnations, what a great spot (especially if you don't have a boat, as you can sit outside on the canal and pretend you're on one, deisel fumes and all!). But it IS expensive, and can be hit or miss.
Been planning to go to Meschutt Beach Park soon: wondering if Beach Hut is at the Marina, and used to be connected with 75 Main? It wasn't any good then, either.
The Beach Hut is about a half a block northwest of the Marina at Meschutt. The parking lot charges during the daytime, but you may be able to find a free spot around the neighborhood.
There are other Beach Huts, like in Cupsogue Park. I saw a Beach Hut catering truck parked in the winter at the Garden Grill in Smithtown.
The blackened tuna sandwich is not bad, as well as the steamed hardshell clams. I ordered two orders of steamers, since they are an appetizer. Stay away from the chowder.
It was really beautiful at dusk. On Friday nights, people bring alot of antique and vintage cars and exhibit them in the parking lot.
