Great Dinner

A wonderful spot to eat dinner. The food and service was great. Little Neck Clams were fresh and sweet. The Lobster Buns should not be missed. Had striped bass which was excellent.

This is such a laid back place and yet the consistent crowds give a nice vitality. Happy yellows and blues set the scene with a beach town vibe. The chef, who is celebrating their 5th year in business here, has a real passion for locally sourced produce and a sensitive way with some unusual herbs and seasonings. We enjoyed a... More

We visited South Edison after my dear friend told me it was her favorite place in Montauk. Food was delicious and they use fresh ingredients, which is very important to me. The ambiance was perfect for our small group; not quiet but definitely not too loud. The cocktails were dangerous because it was hard not to order more of their... More

Short interesting menu. Soft-shell crabs, fluke worked well. Interesting desserts - 5th anniversary sundae worked well for me! Interesting wines with a strong Spanish influence. Went there for two of our five nights in Montauk. Had to sit outside both nights as inside was full, but it's a pleasant place to sit and watch the world go by.

We stopped in here after a day at the beach and decided to stay and eat an early dinner instead of trying to make a reservation for later. We were in bathing suits and coverups and ate outside. We split a few starters and a main pasta dish, all were very tasty. The harvest salad, octopus tacos, shishito peppers, and... More

Like the surroundings and decoration. Great raw bar selections, good drinks and a limited kids menu. Fresh ingredients. A good choice in Montauk.

The restaurant is beautiful and well located. The service is friendly but very professional. Four of us split two appetizers, Edison Baked Clams and Fried Olives. The Clams were freshly prepared and delicious. The fried olives came with goat cheese and everyone loved them. Two people split the Edison clam Bake and raved about it. One had the Heirloom tomato...

Lovely atmosphere, great drinks and great raw bar. I enjoy it so much! Also--they sometimes have an apple ice cream or sorbet that is just wickedly good. Be sure to ask about it !

We took the trip from Southampton Village to Montauk late in the day, just to try South Edison; now 5 years in the running. We went with 2 other foodies, just to sample their fare. Drinks were painfully slow in coming, but the rest of the service that evening was nothing short of spectacular; their kitchen is amazingly well coordinated... More
