I love this restaurant. It is the second year in a row that we have visited and it keeps getting better. Staff works their butts off due to it being so busy. We will return for a third year and I can't wait!

Great little hotel on a very pretty piece of land in Montauk bordering the lake. Laid back and casual yet very comfortable. Rooms are relatively small yet well furnished and accessorized. Wonderful beach area offers a nice alternative setting for cocktails and lighter fare. Bikes and beach passes are complimentary to help round out the Montauk experience.

This is the best restaurant East of Southhampton. The vibe is fantastic, the food was delicious (one of the best ribeye's I have ever had) The drinks were unique and wonderful. And the wait staff was attentive and always on. They need to figure out the parking. The valet lot gets full by 7PM on weekends and then you are... More

I think the tv was HD,.... even though I can live without, always turns me off when in 2015 it is low de.. Free stand up paddle board use in clean water without a lot of boat traffic. Nice to eat...

The water-side location is charming and the atmosphere appealingly Montauk-hip BUT come on guys -- at these prices don't rush us through our 3-course meal as if we ordered a cup of coffee in a diner and have overstayed our welcome. This place tries on the one hand to be a fine dining restaurant but very strongly on the other... More

Time heals all wounds, except the injustice of my dining experience at the Crows Nest. My former review seems to have been lost, but it basically spoke of the establishment's poor attempts to feed our party. Since we were there to eat, their failure was resonant. The experience, that burnt piece of chicken, and the radish remain seared in my... More

Places like this are hard to find, not just in Montauk, but the world. The food was exceotional, from the grilled octopus to the bbq chicken with harissa and an eight hour slow cooked rib of beef. Front desk service was necessarily firm but polite (busy Labor Day weekend) and table service from Mel deserves special mention. The fairy lighting,... More

Crows Nest is the perfect place for sunset drinks followed by dinner. They don't take reservations so get there early have a drink down by the lake and your table will be ready before you know it! The seasonal cocktails are fantastic and I highly recommend the risotto,it sounds heavy for a summer dish but it's delightfully light!

My wife and I were able to secure a table for dinner here during peak season without a reservation, but we had to come before 6pm. It turned out to be a great evening with amazing food and great service. The restaurant is beautiful with an idyllic view over the bay. The food was extremely fresh and presented elegantly. We...

This hotel is super cute cabins or a private cottage. We stayed in the cabins. They are chic rustic with lovely decor and comfy beds. Each cabin has a little balcony. Only downer staying here was when it rained it was impossible to sit outside on the balcony because the leaked so badly that you were soaked also very noisy... More
