A taste of the Hamptons in Santa Monica? That sums up this charming restaurant overlooking the Pacific Ocean, right on Ocean Ave.
I've been wanting to try this place for a while now and finally had the opportunity a couple weeks ago. Seeing how there always seems to be a wait around peak meal times, we arrived exactly when they opened at 11:30 am.
Yay! First ones in the door! We sat at a corner booth right next to the front door. OMG, it was freezing because they had the door open, but thank goodness the waitress offered to close it.
We perused the menu and both decided to get the lobster roll ($22) on a brioche bun. I got mine with fries and he got his with sweet potato chips. I also ordered 2 oysters for myself.
The waitress recommended the Hogg Island and Luna Bay and both were tasty! At $3 a piece, they better be.
The lobster roll came out shortly and OMFG, they sure didn't skimp on portions. The lobster meat was overflowing on the buttery brioche bun. It was delicious. Totally worth the $22. The fries were decent, chips were just okay.

Service was decent, although I found it a bit weird that the waitress wore dark sunglasses while talking to us. We were indoors and it was overcast that day.
