Always love dining out on the patio. Lobster, THIS time, seemed smaller than 11/4lb that I usually order. Very little lobster in the main portion. I feel this was the exception, not the rule, because my prior orders have been perfectly fine. We will be back soon.

Overall, nothing could have been better. But there was one small thing that made me wonder. I made my reservation for Saturday, 4 PM, in the outdoor patio. On Saturday, the weather forecast was for severe thunderstorms. I decided to "amend" my reservation from the outdoor patio to the dining room. When I attempted to do this, the only things I could change were the date and time...not outdoor or indoor. It left me wondering, when I party arrived and outdoors might be out of the question, would then be able to seat us indoors. Well, when I presented myself and told them we had a reservation, they immediately took us to an indoor table (even though there were some people dine outdoors) without question. That part confused me.

Everything was perfect! Food was excellent! Server was good, although we had to ask a couple of times for napkins (which is not a big deal). We loved the outdoor patio, and shrubbery helped to block highway traffic and noise. Overall, everything was wonderful, given the circumstances.

We had a lovely dinner at Buoy One last night. Sitting at the outside patio with friends, sipping wine and eating a very fresh lobster dinner: what could be better? It was a little noisy from Montauk Highway, but not terrible so. The baked clam appetizer is delicious, and they gave us two plates of four each for the four of us, which worked out perfectly. The server was very attentive and professional.

Food is always fresh and made to order. Our waitress was excellent. Only major issue was in getting your food. They were backed up with take out orders which made for a lengthy dinning experience. Having to eat outside due to Covid made the food come out warm and not as hot as would have been if we were able to dine inside. Table spacing and cleanliness was out standing! It was a nice night out.

The server was very good but I found my dish (I had the Tuna) to be quite tasteless and the stir fried vegetables were also without much flavor and too wilted/over done. Also I requested that the tuna be black-n-blue ie: not well done/close to rare but it was not black-n-blue. The Caesar’s salad was good. My husband did not enjoy his meal much either but I tasted his rice and the rice was good.

We asked for actual menus instead of the QRCode one. We were 5 people and they brought us one menu then proceed to tell us it was the only actual menu in the restaurant. Service was a little slow.

Food was good and prices are reasonable. Outside dining area ok except for road noise. It took us about 40 minutes to get our food-
