Join us at South Edison and enjoy a menu packed with local seafood and produce. Chef/Partner Todd Mitgang, who developed our original creative menu, and Executive Chef Frank Fuschetto continue to craft new dishes to complement our customers' favorites. Frank has performed as pastry chef at South Edison and our sister restaurant, Bo's Kitchen & Bar Room in NYC, to rave reviews. This summer he proves he's a hit with savories as well as sweets. Walk right off the beach to try our extensive raw bar, a wide selection of wines and beers, and our signature Pickle Martinis garnished with house-made local veggie pickles. Our original cocktails also bring a refreshing start to a summer evening. After dinner, don't miss the extraordinary desserts. Just one block south of town, South Edison reflects Montauk's fun and casual atmosphere. Stop in, kick back, and enjoy!

Unique Restaurant with Interesting Food

This was our second time dining at South Edison. The last time was three years ago when we were in Montauk and having just arrived again this afternoon we decided to come again because we recalled having really enjoyed this restaurant before. We made a very good choice. Although we were quite... read more

I was definitely expecting more based on the reviews this place received. It was over-priced and the food was just average. They had quite a few vegetarian options if you're into that sort of thing, but overall, it didn't live up to the hype.

Montauk is at the eastern tip of Long Island, surrounded by water. Fresh seafood is what you want to order here. I had the scallops entre, it was great. My wife had the Tuna, I wanted to take it from her, but I didn't want a fork in my hand. Both were fresh. I loved my scallops, but I want... More

Manhattan quality food with a low key Montauk vibe. Loved this place and wish I lived closer! I shared the cauliflower (a perfect dish for vegetarians) and the local fluke. Both were delicious.

South Edison impressed us with its service, drinks and food, and the room was comfortable but in no way fancy. Service was friendly and on-it. Special martinis with chiles were fab. Street corn appetizer was yummy but not impressive, flounder and giant meatball entrees were great - worth a return visit. Dessert profiteroles were yummy but not impressive. We'll definitely...

Beautifully decorated restaurant with a nice bar area. Oyster's were delicious, drinks were crafty but the smoked lobster was overpriced a huge disappointment. I'd probably go back for Oysters and a drink but not for a full blown dinner.

Nice atmosphere, open and airy, not too bright. Sat at the bar to eat and both bartenders were friendly and helpful. I was impressed from the start when I asked if the clam chowder was made with bacon and the bartender was able to provide a solid answer with additional details. Since I don't eat meat, I was glad to... More

Love this place, get the Shishito Pepper app. Great food and a casual atmosphere. The bar area gets crowded around 8pm.
