Surprisingly great find

After going to a couple of highly recommended Montauk restos on a Sunday eve to find out that wait times were over 1.5 hours, we stumbled upon South Edison. I iam so glad that we did -- the food was amazing. Our server wasn't the friendliest but she was efficient - did manage to get a half a... read more

We made a reservation based on trip advisor reviews. The windows faces a road. Plain, unattractive decor. The menu is very limited. No entrees were desirable.ordered the lobster buns appetizer. Three little buns with a tiny bit of lobster in each for $29.00 Needed tums after eating there.

Food here was enjoyable although there wasn't much on the menu that seemed to interest me. Reservations are a must to get in. The down side is tables on top of each other and the acoustics is terrible. It's so loud that we had to yell at each other to try and have a conversation. It was that bad -... More

We had Lobster buns, tuna BLT, homemade fettuccini and charred romaine salad. Each dish was so delicious and flavorful. Even dessert and expresso was amazing.

I know the title is over-the-top, but honestly, I don't like pretentious restaurants unless the food/service and drinks knock me out. My wife and I were not knocked out here. we each tried two different custom drinks created by the barmen and, unfortunately, did not like either of them. Both were very disjointed leaving you wondering "what that taste was?"... More

In the land of overpriced entrees presented with terrible service, South Edison stands far above the rest. We went with another couple, and every morsel on each of our plates was so delicious. The fact that South Edison uses locally sourced ingredients with a nouveau flair, in a comfortable trendy atpmosphere, provided by friendly attentive staff, makes you wonder why... More

The atmosphere and music are wonderful. The menu is very different. I was disappointed that there were no specials. Over all a good experience for a beach weekend.

This should be on your list of places to eat while in Montauk. I'm not sure why this isn't rated higher on TA. Perhaps because Montauk has that surfer dude/rustic sea side town vibes and this place is seen as close to "fine dinning" creative, innovative cuisine. The oysters were great, the seared yellowfin tuna was amazing. The Octopus tacos... More

I had the tuna and spouse had cauliflower steak. It was good but missed something. Had a grilled romaine starter that was great. Service was great and efficient. It got a bit noisy and the ambience was lacking. I think for the eye watering price, the location and good but not outstanding food lowered the rating.
