Following a series of renovations and an early spring cleaning, Southampton‘s landmark dining spot The Driver’s Seat is once again welcoming back the hundreds of loyal families and businesspeople who have made the historic restaurant the “meeting place of the Hamptons‘ for over 50 years.

Under the management of the Herzog family—themselves longtime customers—since 2005, The Driver’s Seat continues to reign as one of the most family-friendly dining establishments on the East End. Owner Irma Herzog and her sons were on hand to welcome back guests this weekend.

Famed for such dishes as their lusty Clam Casserole, Irma‘s Fajitas and great steaks and burgers, the restaurant offers a broad dining experience with all dishes featuring the finest in local produce, fish and meats.

The Driver’s Seat offers breakfast, lunch and dinner Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Saturdays and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. The restaurant also boasts a lovely flower filled patio for spring, summer and fall dining, as well as, an outdoor bar that has long been the favored meeting spot for both local residents and visitors.
