Southampton’s inveterate hideaway Fellingham’s (17 Cameron Street) earned our Gold award for Sports Bar.

Tied for Bronze, and Gold winner for Family Attraction, The Clubhouse in East Hampton (174 Daniels Hole Road) might just be the Hamptons’ ultimate sports complex. Huge and full of food, drink and entertainment options, this spot is offering specials galore, raffles and giveaways, and, of course, football fun at their Super Bowl Sunday brunch and tailgate party. 631-537-BOWL,

Finally, Southampton Publick House (62 Jobs Lane) has a great Sunday Brunch and Super Bowl LIII on big screen TVs. This place has $5 pints, including their own signature beers, $5 burgers and a traditional bar, ready for you to pull up a stool and dive into a plate of half-price wings, buffalo potato skins, Irish nachos and more fabulous foods. They have party trays to go as well, but call early. 631-283-2800,
