    It’s been here for five decades. Affectionately known as Lunch after the large sign on the roof, The Lobster Roll Restaurant remains the quintessential Hamptons seafood shack. My recent stint in East Hampton warranted a jaunt out to the roadside joint. The eponymous staple is served up in an overstuffed hotdog bun, with creamy mayo and crunchy celery to the delight of locals and celebrities alike. This seasonal spot welcomes families with a kid-friendly menu, a hospitable staff and casual dining area complete with outdoor picnic tables. The sun is dipping below the Amagansett horizon as we unwind to the raising of our beer glasses. I stick with my seafood go-to, fish & chips. Though not out of this world, it’s befitting of a small town dive (malt vinegar covers a multitude of sins). Eating so close to the road, the northeast summer isn’t lost on our dining experience. Maybe next time I’ll try the lobster roll.

    The lobster rolls are great, but the chowder and the Fish and Chips are other worldy

    Reminds me of a Lobster Shack in Kennabunkport my mom and dad used to take us to in the 1980s. Still remember the taste of the lobster rolls 25 years later.

    @ Christian - it is worth the consequences.  Eat lobster rolls.

    Looks really awesome, too bad I’m alergic to lobsters.
