When summer rolls around, we always look forward to Reggae Sundays at East Hampton Point as well as dining their during our lunch hour outside on their deck space overlooking the marina. We love to admire the boats that are docked at the marina and taking in the light breeze as we relax and take in the moment. We have been coming here for lunch and dinner for many years and can always expect stellar service and an impeccable dining experience.
For this particular visit, we came on a Monday afternoon just before 1pm. There were about four other tables of patrons around us, so overall it was a very composed ambiance. To drink, I ordered the Summerset Punch cocktail prepared with vodka, grand marnier, apple, pear, cucumber & mint ($12). Another cocktail that sounded appealing was their Black Mountain Mule with Amaro Montenegro, lime juice & ginger beer also for $12.
From raw bar, we split an order of half dozen oysters ($18). The oysters were satisfactory, though I have tasted better. I always like it when the oysters are large, succulent, and have that straight-from-the-sea texture with tiny grains of sand found in each taste.
For lunch, I ordered the Lobster Roll on a buttered brioche with remoulade ($28). My husband ordered the Cajun Chicken Sandwich on ciabatta with avocado, bacon, fontina & chipotle mayo ($18), and our guest ordered the EHP Burger on a buttered brioche with aged cheddar & applewood smoked bacon ($21). I liked that the lobster roll was served with a generously portioned salad on the side rather than French fries. It made for a very wholesome meal. The chicken sandwich was very filling, as my husband could only finish about three quarters of it. The pieces of chicken were juicy and tender. The aged cheddar on the burger along with the crunchy bacon is what confirmed that seal of approval, two thumbs up there!
For dessert, we split three ways the EHP Chocolate Cake: Chocolate Sponge Cake, Peanut Butter Mousse, and Tahitian Vanilla Ice Cream ($10); and the Raspberry Tart with raspberry filling and kiwi sorbet ($10). Dessert was a winner all around. The tart was fruity and refreshing, with a crunchy crust, and the chocolate cake was moist with a creamy peanut butter mousse enveloping each bite. You need at least three to four people to finish the cake. We have come to EHP just for dessert and cordials, and to watch the sun set, and I recommend you do the same. The deck space is so convenient because it allows Sarah to walk about freely. She loves to point and look at the boats. The restaurant is very family-friendly, with at least five of the tables encircling us having children under the age of five.
East Hampton Point is currently open for lunch and dinner.
