The Backyard Restaurant is inspired by a healthy approach to diet and lifestyle – but not obsessive in its goal. We are all about good, wholesome, fresh, natural ingredients and sources (organic meats and vegetables from the local farmer’s markets, fresh catch from the local fishermen). But we can make a pretty nifty drink too.
This season, new resident Executive Chef, Larry Kolar, will be applying a unique, modern interpretation to market-driven, market fresh cusine.

We arrived at the Backyard shortly after sunset and 15 minutes early for our reservation. They immediately seated us at an end table by the pool which was lovely. The service was impeccable in the best way as they were very attentive yet not invasive. They brought us some bread and butter which was awesome! Maybe the best bread I've... More

The Backyard Restaurant is set at the front end of the hotels swimming pool. The pool is surrounded by lounge beds that make you crave to lay down, grab a book and a cocktail and just relax. It's a unique setting to most of the other Montauk hotels. I love the ambiance of the tranquil backyard feeling. Sadly. I found... More

While I cannot attest to the hotel accommodations, after a few visits to the restaurant and attending the Maxi Priest concert, I can honestly say that Sole East is a special destination. The new chef (adam) is taking local Montauk fare to the next level. Their award winning New England Claw Chowder is one of the best in town. Fluke... More

We had a reservation for 5 at 9 pm and were promptly seated. We already had drinks and apps prior to arriving for the dinner and just wanted to eat. We ordered our food and waited and watched as the tables filled up around us. Those who sat down around us and after us were all served with in 15-... More

We had apps and a bottle of wine when we stayed at the Sole East Resort and we enjoyed the service, food and wine. It can be a bit pretentious, but not to the point where you feel uncomfortable. Also they should move the beds out from under the trees and invest in more umbrellas. They are providing warm bodies... More

Sole east is located at the old shepherds neck in Montauk. Our waitress was sweet and attentive. The meal, however, left us cold. We live in Montauk....a half a broiled lobster for $36? And a 1 1/4 one at that! And the took the lobster out and chopped it up. My hubby ordered the swordfish...$38 with soggy fries as a... More
