At first glance, this old-school fish market may not look like one of the Hamptons’ most beloved restaurants, but step inside the tiny, 50-something-year-old grocer and head to the back for a pretty unique dining experience. The extensive menu can be overwhelming in the best way possible, since there are so many options for people who love eating stuff from the ocean. Go for the made-to-order combo seafood platter with fried scallops, shrimp, and white fish, and add cocktail sauce on the side. They also do a catch of the day, like blackened tuna steaks or grilled miso-glazed halibut, chowders, bisques, and more.

Prices are reasonable for the generous portions—a heaping takeout container of hot fish goes for about $20—and the small outdoor patio is perfect for eating on-site. Otherwise, take your picnic to a nearby beach (Wainscott Beach is a five-minute drive). Rumor has it, Ina G herself buys her fish at this Wainscott shop, but she has yet to text us back to confirm.
