Old-School Hamptons

The Hamptons have seen its share of trendy restaurants come and then vanish the very next season.  But what we love most about eating and drinking on the East End are the places that have been around for decades. Dog-ear our list of old-school hangouts and you will truly feel like you’ve been spending summer at the beach for decades.

Lobster Roll

1980 Montauk Highway, Montauk, N.Y. 11930

631.267.3740


Opened in 1965 by father-and-son duo Frederick H. Terry Sr. and his dad Richard C. Terry, Lobster Roll has been in the family ever since. Mistakenly called “lunch” thanks to the word appearing in huge lettering on the sign outside, this unassuming spot is credited with inventing the cold lobster roll by the American Dictionary of Food and Drink.
