The 10 Best Restaurants in the Hamptons

North Fork Table 
What are you doing still at your computer - it's summer! Shouldn't you be on the Jitney to the Hamptons by now? If you are going to head out to Long Island for the Fourth of July or if you're planning a vacation later in the season, you've gotta eat (despite the rail-thin fashion types that lounge on those beaches). The Hamptons are full of excellent restaurants, but we're going to help you choose by narrowing them down to the 10 best, as published in our 2012/13 Long Island Restaurants Guide. After all, the less time you spend planning, the more time you have to chill out and soak up the sun.

  1. Not all of these restaurants are in the Hamptons. Some are on the North Fork of Long Island.

    In addition, some of the addresses say "Brooklyn"?

  2. 1) Wading River - is not in the Hamptons. Most people define the Hamptons as the South Fork.

    2) The list is a joke without The Living Room in East Hampton.

  4. A Top Ten list of restaurants in the Hamptons, without SouthFork Kitchen, probably THE BEST restaurant in the area? No inclusion of Almond, or Red Bar, two of the best and most consistent eateries on the South Fork?! But you include restaurants on the North Fork, and in Wading River? I'm sure they're fine restaurants...BUT THEY ARE NOT IN THE HAMPTONS!
    This list is clearly a joke meant to dupe tourists (imagine the look on their faces when they decide to head out to that great Hamptons dining establishment La Plage as they punch in the address on their GPS!)
    In the interest of fairness, I've no argument with Stone Creek Inn, or Dave's Grill...Those are top choices, for sure. But Mirko's? Plaza Cafe? Cuisine-wise, those places haven't been relevant for YEARS, if ever.
    People are always going to have issues with the specific inclusions on any Top Ten list...But as someone who has lived in the Hamptons for over ten years, trust me when I say there is more wrong with this list than there is right. Dine at your own peril!

  5. The top two picks are not even in the Hamptons! How is this a top ten list of Hamptons restaurants, when the top two choices aren't even in the area!?!?!?!

  6. Why do some of the addresses say they're in Brooklyn??

  7. This is a completely absurd list! Has anyone there ever been to the Hamptons? Not only are several of these restaurants not in the Hamptons but you've managed to miss the best ones out here! Where's Beacon in Sag Harbor? Where's the American Hotel? Where is Nick and Toni's? This really is a shock to think that Zagat is so ill-informed. Makes you wonder about your other lists, doesn't it?

  8. This is THE STUPIDEST list of restaurants for the Hamptons I have ever seen. You guys did a horrible job.

  9. I can't believe the Palm made the list. What a dreadful restaurant. Salads that look like salsa and desserts so old they taste like the cardboard box they come in. Ewue.
