    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 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.

    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!

    The roasted oysters are drippy, warm and delicious, and come topped with savory garlic butter. Read more

    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.

    Drippy, buttery and delicious, this is a most comforting way to serve them. Filling and warming to the toes, could there be a more perfect oyster dish for fall? Read more

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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.

    Ditch Plains injects a little Midwest-style inventiveness into the heart of the West Village. May we present, the mac-and-cheese-covered heart attack hot dog. It kind of had to happen, didn’t it? Read more

    BLOODY MARY! I won't judge you if you get one at midnight. They're always good (and spicy).

    Blody marys are intense. Horseradish, pepper and spice punch you in the mouth. Spicy tecate is the bomb.

    Though it looks fancy, Ditch Plains is a comfortable spot to snack on seafood-shack cuisine and burgers.

    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.

    get the ditch dogs with bacon. do it.

    Nothing on the lunch menu costs more than $15. On a recent visit, the daily po'boy was made with five fat, juicy fried oysters. A plentiful BLT is summer comfort food defined. Read more

    Don't get the ditch wich, it's literally a foil wrapped ice cream sandwich. Might as well go to the grocery and get a whole box of ice cream sandwiches.

    Nice bartender. Uncool vibe. With flat panel TVs going and bad music. Good cocktail though.

    The French toast looks like a tree trunk but its actually pretty fluffy inside. Order it, you won't regret it.

    Yummy oysters from VA. But the seafood cobb salad is for people who don't like to eat salad.
