Hamptons area seafood lunch - baby friendly options?

We will be in the Hamptons area the end of Sept for the day and would like to find a good seafood place for lunch. I'll have my 7 month old son with us so nothing too upscale will work. Any ideas? It would be a weekday if that makes a difference.

    Here's a link with recommendations in the area:

      Thanks for your reply. I guess I needed to be more specific. I meant the eastern end of LI. Never even considered there was another place it might be confused with. Any suggestions anyone?

        What areas will you be near? Hamptons LI covers about 30-40 miles.

          I don't really have anything specific planned. Thought maybe we'd stop in Southampton - I seem to remember some cute shops there, but we're open to just about anywhere.

    2. On your way in to the Hamptons, you can stop by Brewsters in Hampton Bays. Very casual and very good. They are also a seafood market and you can also do Lobster bakes for take out.

      1. Almost everything in the village is upscale, I was thinking maybe the Lobster Inn on Ct y Rd 39, I know they're open until Columbus Day. Very old fashioned kind of family place. We always enjoy their simple dishes, like lobster or oysters and clams on the half shell, although some of their fried stuff is really heavy. Has a salad bar and over the top nautical decor, as long as that doesn't turn you off. On the plus side, it's on the water.

        Right in the village on Jobs Lane is the Drivers Seat, pubby and not stuffy;some of their fish is fine but some is terrible. Don't get the stuffed clam casserole, it's just a dish of bread crumbs! But location wise maybe it'd work for you, and I know the little one won't be a problem.

        1. If you are taking the LIE out stop for lunch at the Lobster Roll. And when you are done grab some sweets at Briermere Farms. Both in Riverhead. THEN head south. Enjoy your day!
