It’s hard not to feel right at home at The Garden at Water Mill. The doors are open seven days a week at the charming eatery with feel-good fare meant for sharing. Have a seat indoors (there’s 60) surrounded by exposed beams and cherry wood floors that open out onto an expansive, outdoor backyard, complete with a floral garden and lawn games.
The menu is all-American… think shareable snacks, summer crudos and other killer dishes accompanied by cocktails and an extensive wine list. Family night is covered thanks to the lobster bake, the resto’s family-style plate. The bake includes a massive pot filled with lobster, mussels, shrimp, corn, potatoes and homemade bread. Between the familial atmosphere and savory food, we can bet you’ll be back. 755 Montauk Highway, Water Mill, 631.500.9373, thegardenatwatermill.com
