Dave's Grill was our favorite back in the 90's when Julie, Dave's wife, sang in the restaurant and the stuffed lobster was amazing. Well with barbecuing on our deck and entertaining family in our home, we let this fantastic restaurant slip away - it was time to return and tonight was the night. We had the most fantastic meal and... More

Made our 4:15 calls from the beach. Did not get a table the 1st nite but we did the 2nd. Drinks out on the porch were good. We had the blue cheese salad and calamari for appetizers and everyone had the Cioppino for the main. This time it was over linguine. This is a family favorite as everyone ordered it.... More

Dave does a wonderful job and we attempt to eat here every visit we make to MTK ... which is usually in early or late season and therefore the reservation system is not really a concern. We started with a wonderful special of fresh ricotta with shaved truffles, truffle oil and local honey ... it was wonderful and a delicious... More

My last request on earth would be Cioppino at Dave's. We have been coming to Dave's for many years and it is without a doubt one of the finest dining experiences you will ever have!

Ate there again twice this month. Great swordfish. Wonderful wine. Terrific and attentive service. On a crowded Friday night, they honored our reservation at exactly the 8:30 time we reserved. Really another perfect evening there.

This a a fantastic, casual atmosphere with absolutely fabulous food. The chopped salad was fresh, fresh, fresh - a great start. The cioppino was terrific - the lobster, clams, osyters and shrimp were expectedly fresh and wonderful, but even the white fist - sword fish - was perfect. I love Oregon pinots and you rarely see Cristom in a restaurant... More

tl;dr This is a must if you're in Montauk. - Cioppino was beyond awesome. - Get the chocolate bag for dessert. - Came here the first day they reopen for 2014, so we didn't have to wait but it seems like it's a busy place during peak season.

Have tried many of the montauk restaurants and this one rates high on the list in food quality. The atmosphere and staff although are among the best in montauk. Drinks are on the pricey side. Simply put if u want great food excellent service and great atmosphere go to Dave's,

I had been to Dave's a couple of times for dinner. I made a reservation and returned with friends to have another delicious fish dinner. We all loved our food. Friendly attentive service. Jeremy T

I do not live in this area but have visited The Hamptons and Montauk and I must say Dave's Grill is still the best of the best restaurants and worth the drive if you are not staying in Montauk. I always order seafood. It is pricey but worth every penny. It is also worth calling and respecting their system of... More
