Chow-ish Places in Southampton Area?

roxlet Aug 14, 2008 12:54 PM

We will be going to a tournament in Southampton this weekend, and I do not know the food scene there at all since we are long-time North Fork-ites. We are going to North Fork Table & Inn for dinner on Friday night, but Saturday we will be pretty much stuck in Southampton. I do not want to go any further east due to the traffic issues, so any ideas in the general vicinity of Southampton and points immediately west (Hampton Bays, Quogue, West Hampton) would be greatly appreciated!

    I've always enjoyed lunches at Silver's, but I've only been off season. I don't believe they take reservations, so in season there may be an issue with a line. I had the best BLT I've ever had there, and the lobster roll, though expensive, is excellent. We usually order both and then "mix and match" so that we end up with a lobster BLT of sorts.

      it's ridiculously expensive though. the lobster roll is something like $39.00.

        Yes, that doesn't surprise me - it was maybe $34 when I last went, but I've noticed lobster roll prices rising every where.

          I just had another lobster roll there yesterday, and I think it was $30 - a little less than last time I went. I do wish they didn't serve it on a baguette - we split it again with a BLT - and I put some lobster on my half of the BLT. Next time I might just order the lobster salad instead. Also, their espresso is excellent, as are the free cookies you get.

      I'd say either Tuscan House (corner of Jobs Lane and Montauk Hwy) or the seafood restaurant across from Southampton Inn (someone help me out with the name). Both are world class good.

          try Canal Cafe in Hampton Bays on west side of canal. a bit off montauk hgwy north on newtown. Rrrreally good food surprisingly. little atmosphere. lobster roll is great, better and cheaper than most everywhere but fish dishes are better, imho. order from the specials. never had dessert there so cannot comment on that. its always crowded. low key, right on the dock. can be a bit loud if you're sitting near the live music. its small but eat at the bar if you cant wait, just go!

            Sounds great. Are the lobster rolls the mayonnaise type or the butter type?

              ummm mayo i think but not sure, either way they aren't heavily dressed. mostly just lobster chunks and not a lot of celery or other stuff to get in the way. also on toasty square ciabatta roll not the icky white bready hotdog roll. less than(or about) $20 i think too :)

              i like the fish dish with the mango salsa even better though! do try the specials, have not been disappointed yet this summer.

            Stone Creek Inn in East Quogue is very good. French seasonal food in a charming setting. If you want something a bit more low key and on the water drive over to Dune Road and head to Oaklands on the Shinnecok Inlet. It can get chaotic, but the food is surprisingly fantastic. I had the best halibut there a few weekends ago. Very fresh!

              Foody's in Watermill. The owner was a chef from Nick and Toni's. He makes great pizza. Try the whole wheat with smoked chicken and spinach. He cooks over a wood fire. His salads and soups are very good. So are his ribs and smoked brisket. Mozzarella is made in house.

                Tweeds in Riverhead on Main street. They serve bison! When I want red meat, I go to Tweeds. Plenty of other choices as well. Great Place. Never have I been disappointed. They make great desserts too.
