Catch the big game at these great Hamptons spots. (Photo credit: iStock, sirandel)

On Sunday, tens of millions across the nation will gather together to see the title-defending Kansas City Chiefs face off against the San Francisco 49ers for Super Bowl LVIII. For most, the Super Bowl is an all-day affair, with all the pageantry and picking at comfort-food faves. And while we all love a good home-made finger-food situation, it’s ok to get some help from the pros so you’re not stuck at the stove or in line at the grocery store while your friends and family settle in for that 6:30 p.m. kickoff. Here on the South Fork, there are plenty of restaurants, pizzerias and catering companies sure to get you, and your spread, in winning form. And if you don’t feel like cooking, or hosting for that matter, we’re also including some of our fave spots to watch the Big Game, with most featuring drink and food specials. And if you couldn’t care less about the outcome of the game, we’re confident the live footage of America’s uofficial sweetheart Taylor Swift and this year’s Halftime Show performer Usher will keep you thoroughly entertained.

Townline BBQ, 3593 Montauk Hwy., Sagaponack, 631-537-2271

Let the fine folks at Townline BBQ get you ready for the Big Game, as their menu brings a taste of Southern barbecue to the East End. While the Sagaponack location is offering familiar faves like wings (50 wings for $75) and nachos ($40 per tray), folks can opt for ’Que Combos, a build-your-own-sandwich situation designed to feed either up to four or eight people. Smoky and succulent, combos include a pulled pork sandwich kit ($70 for 4, $140 for 8)) as well as a chicken and rib dinner option ($85 for 4, $170 for 8). Both come with coleslaw, baked beans, pickles and other accoutrements. Go big and go home with the Townline Extravaganza combo ($130 for 4, $260 for 8), which includes pork ribs, brisket, pulled pork and smoked chicken. This feast is served with collard greens, baked beans, house-made cornbread and pickles. Be sure to head to the bar area at Townline and grab one of their specialty Super Bowl cocktails: a $10 margarita or a $12 strawberry mezcalita. It’s the perfect sipper while you’re waiting or trying to catch kick-off.

Smokin’ Wolf, 199 Pantigo Road, East Hampton, 631-604-6470

This East Hampton BBQ joint is keeping it classic. Get all your Super Bowl staples here, as Smokin’ Wolf is offering 50-piece buckets of wings for $98 each, two dozen bite size sliders (choice of pork, chicken or brisket) for $55, and jumbo shrimp cocktail platter for $75. Round out your finger-food feast with sweet and spicy meatballs, nachos will all the fixin’s, pigs in a blanket, chips and dips, cheeseburger sliders and that almost-obligatory crudité platter ($48). Gotta get your veggies in, right? Most options are designed to feed up to 10 of your nearest and dearest, but the restaurant’s comfort food friendly-regular menu is available as well, if your game watching group is smaller. If your pre-ordered tab is $125 or over, you can receive a free 12-pack of beer. (Say what?!) They’ll be open from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Sunday for any last minute munchies. Get there!

Club House, 174 Daniels Hole Road, East Hampton, 631-537-2695

If you’re looking for a “fun for the whole family” kind of place to watch the Big Game, look not further than Club House in Wainscott.

For $35 per person, there’ll be unlimited game food, half price bottles and specials on buckets of beer. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

Southampton Publick House, 62 Jobs Lane, Southampton, 631-283-2800

One of the OG sports bars of the East End, Southampton Publick House is offering all sorts of good Game Day fun this Sunday. In addition to having the game screening across oodles of TVs (they have a whopping 21) deals include half-price burgers and 25 cent wings (sold by the dozen), plus half-off all appetizers. Beers are $5 each and that includes all drafts, cans and bottles while glasses of wine are $8. And while kick-off isn’t until 6:30 p.m. specials start at 5 p.m.

Rowdy Hall, 177 Main St., Amagansett, 631-324-8555

Downtown Amagansett has a pub again! Now that Rowdy Hall is at the former Indian Wells Tavern, residents of the hamlet have a fresh new place to watch the game. Adorned with three big screen TV’s plus an ample bar featuring over half a dozen tap beers alone, menu items include classic chicken wings, a giant Bavarain pretzel with beer mustard, fish and chips, burgers and turkey burgers.

Kizzy T’s, 47 Montauk Highway, East Hampton, 631-604-5855

New to the restaurant scene is Kizzy T’s, set inside the former Bamboo location across from the Red Horse Market Plaza. With a tight menu that’s sure to please everyone (think crispy chicken wings, smash burgers and chicken sandos) this Hamptons haunt is brought to us by the same crew behind K Pasa in Sag Harbor and Kumiso in East Hampton. Built like an adult playground, there’s big screen TV’s and a welcoming bar, plus pool tables, foosball tables, giant Jenga, darts, shuffleboard and lots of good grown-up activity to keep you moving if you get tired of sitting.

The Chequit, 23 Grand Ave., Shelter Island Heights, 631-749-0018

Amble up to the ample bar at this Island staple for a little neighborly cheering (or jeering?) of Super Bowl LVIII, where the cold beer (or wine or cocktails) will flow next to their excellent juicy burgers on plump house-made brioche rolls (because, at the Chequit, Sunday night is burger night anyway from 5 to 8 p.m. — $16 for your patty and fried potatoes!).
