The Driver's Seat Restaurant


The building that is now the front bar room was built in 1888 and was a produce store at that time. It was first used as a restaurant in 1960.

The owner then was Kingsley Moore, who had a passion for auto racing. He knew many of the drivers at the Bridgehampton Race Track, which was a major stop on the racing circuit back then. Kingsley Moore decided his pub would be called “The Driver's Seat” and it became a hangout for the local racing set when they were in town.

The Driver's Seat under more recent ownership from 1976 to 2005 underwent extensive renovations and additions to the front bar, back dining room and outside patio/bar.

In early 2005 the restaurant was purchased by a local family who loved the restaurant and wanted to restore the restaurant to its original grandeur. Since then the facilities and menu have been updated. Our experienced full-time and visiting chefs now offer our patrons a more broad dining experience. Today, the Drivers Seat continues

providing guests with the best dining quality and value in the Hamptons.
