July is busting out all over at Jedediah Hawkins Inn. Craig Attwood, who took over the kitchen earlier this year from Richard Kanowsky, is making good use of the Jamesport inn’s lovely grounds.

On Thursday nights, Attwood serves barbecued chicken, pork ribs, corn and cornbread starting at 5 p.m. ($28). And an old fire truck is on hand to dispense craft beer from Riverhead’s Crooked Ladder Brewing Company.

Fridays there’s live music on the patio. Sundays, starting at 3 p.m., Attwood serves a traditional clam bake with lobster, clams, mussels, corn and potatoes ($30). And Thursday through Sunday, the new front patio hosts a happy hour from 4 to 6 p.m. with $5 wines by the glass, spiked sorbets and nutty floats such as lemon-ginger sorbet with limoncello or raspberry sorbet with Gosling's Black Seal rum and club soda. 

Jedediah Hawkins Inn is at 400 S. Jamesport Ave., Jamesport, 631-722-2900,
