Fodor's Review

An integral element of the rose-canopied complex of shingled shacks that epitomizes 'Sconset, the Summer House's main dining room is awash in white wicker and exuberant floral displays; a pianist keeps the mood buoyant. As the latest star chef in residence, Todd English has kept his more playful leanings in check: the menu is on the staid side, as befits the audience (spotted one evening: three generations sporting a rainbow of Lacoste polos). It's in the gorgeous Beachside Bistro down below that the fun stuff is stashed: exemplary fried clams (whole-bellied, of course) and a swell trio of tacos. Throw in a moonrise and you've got one magical night.
