The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Escape the Hamptons on Shelter Island


4. Insider’s Tip

The Pridwin's front-lawn barbecues are a long-standing tradition for islanders.  

Take part in a Shelter Island tradition on the front lawn of the Pridwin at their Wednesday night barbecues ($35 for adults, $19 for children), where you can chow down on all-you-can-eat items like grilled shrimp, clams, steak, hamburgers, hot dogs, and corn on the cob, while listening to live music and chatting with local islanders. Originally started as a way to give the chefs a night off, nearly 50 years later the weekly sea-view barbecue is a cherished summer ritual.
