This is a laid back spot is Kismet. We usually walk from Robert Moses via the Lighthouse. Love the walk and love the restaurant. I feel like I am in a vacation spot. We always sit outside and the food is great. Recommend the Grilled Brie sandwich and the fish and chips too. Very fresh.

Food here is very good; the menu is very extensive for a Fire Island restaurant. Morgan, our waitress, couldn't do enough for us. But.......the hostess had absolutely no personality and made no bones that she wanted us to leave because she had people coming in with reservations. We were the ONLY guests sitting outside!!!

Restaurant with lovely terrace and laid-back atmosphere next to Watertaxi dock in Kismet. They offer a menu with a good variety of dishes. I loved their sushi: the rolls are delicious. Go for green apple if you like something special (no rice, just tuna, with tempura crumble, avo and mayo). Also the Quinoa salad with kale was one of the... More

The Out is a great Fire Island restaurant and bar. They have seafood, great sushi and a nice Continental menu. The outdoor patio hosts live bands and has a beachhead theme.

This was the first time been here. We were visiting relative & she took us to several different places all around Long Island & the Hamptons. We walked here from the beach (about 45 min walk). There is a walkway to follow & you pass by a lighthouse about halfway there. Nice pleasant walk. This place is right near the... More

As first time visitors to Fire Island we were pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. The food and service are excellent. A wide variety of delicious appetizers - highly recommend grilled octopus with white beans or guacamole. Every one of our eight entrees were excellent especially the sushi bowl (tuna and salmon). Delicious chocolate lava cake capped off the meal.

After the walk from the lighthouse, this place is perfect. The food is good. Had sushi, fish tacos, lobster mac&cheese, and a sushi bowl. The waiter was friendly and attentive, the drinks were good. It can get crowded , but the vibe is fun. A must go.

Really casual, good food, fun atmosphere. Gets a bit noisy as the night goes on but that's the environment. Service was great

Food is more mainland type - service is not always consistent. Bring back some of the old menu! Fish is good and sushi is great.
