Lobster Roll (a.k.a Lunch), Amagansett

1980 Montauk Highway
Amagansett , New York
Tel: 631 267 3740's insider take:

Since 1965, the Lobster Roll has been the quintessential Long Island seafood joint. Also known as Lunch, thanks to the sign on top of its roof, this seasonal spot welcomes families with a kid-friendly menu, a warm staff, fast service, and a casual dining space. Groups gather on benches for bowls of mellow lobster bisque; tender, well-spiced crab cakes; old-fashioned egg creams; homemade rhubarb pie; and, of course, the famous lobster roll, a classic that comes on an overstuffed hot-dog bun with creamy mayo and crunchy celery. Lunch (which also serves dinner) recently reintroduced a hot lobster roll, served with scampi butter, and offers other surprises, too, including a gluten-free menu and tempura-style blowfish.—Updated by Darrell Hartman

Open May through October; weekends only before Memorial Day and after Labor Day.
