First of all, it's "Edgewater," as in one word, not "Edge Water." The food here is very good and the location, across the road from the bay, is picturesque but not water-view stunning. We've been here several times, and maybe it was just this night,...More

The wait staff is friendly & reliable. Always a good meal - and with a great view! The only drawback is they don't take reservations for under 6 people and the wait time can be long.More

The best appetizers, the best (warm) bread roll bowl and the best Italian entrees in Shinnecock Hills - and up off the ground with a view of the Bay to boot. Just kidding about the topless wait staff.

We'd been advised to book ahead, and were glad we did. The place was busy, with a good atmosphere. Excellent food, and we rather over-ordered! Good service. We'd go again if visiting the area.
