    Maybe the greatest sandwich of all time-- let me introduce you to the Ditch Dog... 2 well done hot dogs with Mac n Cheese on top with a perfect bun served with crispy fries---and the beer is ice cold!

    Friendly service, good for groups and low key. Tasty Hamptons inspired eats incl lobster rolls $29, jalapeño tater tots and creamy crab dip. Skip pigs in a blanket, and chewy buffalo wings.

    Don't believe the lukewarm rating!! GREAT happy hour! Tacos are tasty, tater tots are the tits, and solid drink specials. This place is a hidden gem. Almost guaranteed space for your group after work

    Try the lobster roll, a perfect balance of succulent Maine lobster, house-made garlic aioli, Old Bay seasoning, celery, green onion and tarragon. A delicious contender in our 2012 Lobster Roll Rumble: Read more

    the deviled eggs. the ditch dog: mac and cheese on a hot dog on a bed of fries. remember as a little kid when you could only have one of those for dinner?

    The lobster roll is good and generous, but has too much seasoning for my taste. The fries that come with it are perfectly crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

    Come for the Surfer Sundays (and Mondays) for their $30 Lobster bake. Any other time, come for their Lobster Roll, Mac ‘N Cheese or Cajun Shrimp & Andouille.

    Not a lot of tables, and the front turns into more of a bar, but it doesn't disrupt your dinner. Service was good. The salmon, Brussels sprouts, and grits are amazing!
  • Gansevoort Hotel Group
    Get the crab dip and lobster roll or try the infamous ditch dogs (macaroni and cheese topped hotdogs)! Really cool space with great casual food - you'll definitely enjoy every bite of it.

    Do you love Mac ‘n Cheese? Do you love Hot Dogs? Then you simply must order a Ditch Dog (a hot dog smothered with delicious mac ‘n cheese).

    If you are here for dinner and ready to EAT get the shrimp and grits. Best thing hands down. And I've eaten 75% of the menu.

    Great neighborhood spot, never disappointed. Service can be spotty and they need to add their grilled cheese onto the dinner menu. So good.

    The Spicy Tecate is one of my favorite drinks in NYC, great for brunch. "How spicy is it?" you ask? It's pretty spicy, but not overbearing.

    In keeping with its seafood focus, Ditch Plain gives away saltwater taffy to its patrons. The rainbow-colored candies come in a glass along with the check.

    The service was rude. They could not provide a table for 12. They only had half bottle of wine?! Why? They would not do a glass of sparkling only a litre. #Bar tab non transferable to table - why?
