Hamptons Bar & Grill is a New York Style restaurant, located next door to the Savoy Hotel. This place is ideal if you’re looking for something slightly different than your regular burger.
Go for something a bit fancier with a Hampton’s burger. How often do the burgers your order come complete with Portobello mushroom topped with béarnaise sauce? The Hamptons 10oz Gourmet Bearnaise Burger does.
If you’re in the mood for a burger that’s a little more mainstream, check out their Hickory Burger. This is the Hamptons we’re talking about though so instead of ketchup it comes with specially blended tomato relish and instead of your regular cheddar, these cheese slices are cut from vintage cheddar cheese. Enjoy!
