Pizza Place
$$
“Long considered the one of the top 5 if not number 1 pizzeria's in the country, Frank Pepe's Pizzeria is a must visit. Unsurprisingly, Hyatus recommends the White Clam Pizza. Invented at Franke Pepe's (they also invented their coal-fired pizza ovens which are still in use today), the white clam pizza is made with fresh clams, garlic, cheese, olive oil, and is just absolutely delicious.”

Pizza Place
$$$
“Nice restaurant/bar which gets extremely busy. They serve good pizza and have a nice beer selection. It really packs out on Friday and Saturday nights so can be a bit of a wait, though there are also a lot of alternate restaurants along this strip.”

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.”

Italian Restaurant

“Well known, well appointed and wonderful food. Northern Italian for the most part and locally grown and sourced produce and fish. Fab brunch on Sundays in the off season. See and be seen!”

Hotel
“It used to be that if you wanted to party on the East End, you were either battling the lines and awful people at horrible clubs like Pink Elephant (RIP) and Jet East (RIP) in Southampton, reverting to your old college ways at Stephen’s Talkhouse, or getting really messy at The Point and Memory Motel in Montauk (which is absolutely still a good idea). Now, everyone just goes to the Surf Lodge - or tries to. At this point, Saturday nights are completely off limits. It’s an absolute zoo. We get our Surf Lodge in around 6 or 7pm for an early cocktail and live music, or on a rainy Friday when it’s empty. Eating a full meal here isn’t necessary, unless you’re booking with the hopes of eating dinner here to skip the line.”
