The lobster was great but the potatoes that were served with the lobster were not my favorite - I always have a baked potato with my lobster or french fries. The corn on the cob was not that tasty but certainly understand that sweet corn is not in season. The service was fabulous, and the bartender does a nice pour.

This is as our first visit back to one of our favorite places. The restaurant looks fresh and new and still has the same comfortable environment. Our wait Tom was fantastic and all of our dishes were delicious. For a great seafood meal in an iconic location Manna’s Lobster Inn is perfect.

Love this place but they should fix up the dining area. Was seated at a table with the back of my chair up next to a step. Table didn’t move and pinned up next to table. Overall food is great just needs some attention to the ambiance. Also very drafty!

The food was cold and awful. The lobster had some kind of black goo in the shell and the sea bass was tasteless. Don’t go here.

Very nice location. They definitely have to lose the music. Very loud club dance music playing, It didn’t fit the ambience for a waterfront seafood restaurant. Made me want to leave. Food was OK. Nothing special.

This is an east end iconic place that I have been going to for decades. Sorry to see it close, happy to see it open. Everything is great but the music is for a sports beer not a great seafood restaurant with a view

We live the setting by the water. Beautiful sunset. You feel like you are on a boat. Appetizers are excellent. Love the blue fish spread and stuffed clam. Lobster was perfect but a little pricy. Service was excellent. Great place for date night. We will be back.

We’ll it’s not the Lobster Inn. Service was excellent but the food was not. The most gorgeous shrimp cocktail. HUGE pink/white shrimp but NO flavor at all. Possibly a bit chlorine flavor???? Can’t explain it. The meatball app was delish, raw clams also good. Surf and turf was okay but much better probably anywhere else. Key lime pie probably would have been good except I could only taste the raspberry sauce it was smothered in. But the service was great/food delivered hot/table cleaned often etc. sorry! Feel bad being so negative but Lobster Inn it was not ☹️

We had a very good dinner at Manna at the Lobster Inn. I had the baked clams to start followed by the steamed lobster. It was delicious. The two men with us had something from the raw bar and the other two women shared a Caesar salad and a shrimp cocktail for a starter. Two of them had the lobster, one had a fish that she liked very much, and another had pasta (go figure!). Everyone was very pleased with their meal. Our waitress was new and friendly and we enjoyed speaking with her.

We came for lunch at 4 o’clock on this past Sunday and were so disappointed. Ordered the splat for two and Brussels sprouts. Waited 20 minutes, waitress came out with lobster, one ear of corn and potatoes. We asked her where is the rest of the order. Said she made a mistake and took back the order. Waited another 20 minutes and finally the order came which included a very small lobster, mussels with nothing in them, four shrimp, one ear of corn and red skin potatoes. I never was so disappointed for $95.00. We went home hungry.

We Had Another great meal at Manna. We have been here quite a few times over the summer . Each time we were in different areas of the restaurant. Tonight we were facing the beautiful sky during sunset views while drinking our wine and eating our meal . Each time we visited , the meal was amazing. The mahi tonight , Tuna the time before , the Cole slaw, Thai mussels and deviled eggs all some of my favorites . Each and every time our server was attentive. Tonight Stephan was around when needed and gave suggestions when asked . We are happy to have Manna at Lobster Inn back again ! We will be back soon!

We were delighted to see the Lobster Inn re-open. It has kept all of its charm and even been improved with some freshened paint and decor. The lobster seemed a bit pricey so during 2 separate meals we ate other items, which we liked very much: baked clams, crab salad appetizer, the Tackle Box platter (which also includes that delicious crab salad dip), baked salmon, creamed spinach and a positively delicious side corn on the cob with a tasty garlic butter. A slice of key lime pie was a delicious dessert. We also enjoyed some St Francis chardonnay and a draft Oktoberfest ale. We will definitely be back!

How can a fish restaurant overcook the fish and leave grit in the baked clams? Very nice waiter, great ambiance, but you do have to eat.

Called to ask a question about reservation 2 days in advance, left a message, no return phone call. Had to ask the waiter about specials and price of lobsters. Ordered a splat that was served with a buttery herb broth. There wasn’t any type of bread served to use for the broth. There wasn’t a bowl for the shells so some were left on the table. When the table was cleared the extra shells were left on the table. Waiter never asked the complete table if they would like additional drinks. He didn’t have the beer for one guest so he just walked away. Waiter didn’t supply hand wipes for the guests who had lobster, not even extra napkins. Lastly the check and credit cards were returned on a wet plate . The checks were wet and the credit cards had to be wiped off on dirty napkins……food was prepared correctly but this establishment is not prepared for service.

Lobster roll was good nicely cooked and substantial, baked clams were poor a pile of bread crumbs on top of a clam. Service was pathetic we asked for extra lemon and even though the waitress wasn’t busy she forgot to bring it. Physically the space is unchanged they may have painted it but other than that no changes in the last 20 years

Service was not great. Execution is poor. Seafood tower that is supposed to come with 2 shrimp had none. When this was pointed out, the server brought out one shrimp. Side orders came well after entrees were served, almost when we had finished. Broccolini were over cooked and water logged and corn on the cob was cold. Mixed drinks took a long time to be served to us.
Server was nice, but could not make up for the shortcoming of the bar and kitchen.

so wonderful to see this restaurant open again there's no other spot like it in the Hamptons the interiors have been renovated with crisp clean white interior and the menu ranges from a perfect steamed lobster to more interesting items like fish Milanese.

Very disappointed

I would think with restaurateurs who own several other restaurants this on would be a slam dunk. It wasn’t.

They tried to use the fame of the Lobster Inn to attract customers and specifically used the old standby “Splat” which was an old standby of the Lobster Inn to entice customers.

The atmosphere also disappoints. They whitewashed the walls but keep some of the same tables, which when it was the Lobster Inn was charming but not for an upscale wanna be like Manna @ Lobster Inn.

Overall very dissatisfied

Really fresh and delicious seafood platter with oysters and clams and crabmeat. Lobster roll was excellent. The ambience is perfectly seaside simple and clean. And the service was very friendly and attentive. Looking forward to going back 👍👍
