Although the weather has turned a bit cooler and our thoughts may be on the flavors of fall, summer is not over yet.
Kenny’s Spirited Eatery in Southampton is giving us one last chance to savor the tastes of summer with their final seafood night of the season on September 16th. Since May, Kenny’s has been hosting seafood night each Wednesday, featuring all-you-can-eat snow crab legs and specials on pitchers of beer – what says summer more than that!
Other seafood night staples include king crab legs, oysters on the half shell, BBQ shrimp, and crab bites, but as you can see the moment you arrive, the all-you-can-eat crab legs steal the show. The tables, normally dressed in cloth, are covered in paper and the kitchen door is constantly swinging as servers bring out plate upon plate of steaming Old Bay-covered crab legs to the sound of cracking shells. And they really mean “all you can eat” – this summer, two-and-a-half plates was all I could tackle, but I have been witness to a couple five-plate crab leg feasts.
For those not into seafood, Kenny’s dinner menu offers plenty of variety, from traditional bar appetizers like quesadillas and wings (I suggest the Caribbean jerk wings with chipotle ranch sauce), to a wide variety of burgers and sandwiches, to more sophisticated entrees such as ahi tuna and veal marsala. Perhaps if the cooler weather is an inspiration you’ll try a soup like I recently did; their meat-packed chili has just a touch of heat – enough to warm you up on these slightly cooler evenings.
Kenny’s was established in 1955 as a small neighborhood bar and was recently renovated and reopened. The “spirited eatery” has a full lunch and dinner menu as well as two bars and a full calendar of nighttime entertainment, including weekend DJ dance parties and Sunday night poker tournaments.
For those looking for casual dining, a menu with plenty of variety, daily dinner specials, a lively atmosphere, and, of course, all-you-can-eat crab legs, Kenny’s is worth checking out.
