Very good food

The food was excellent. We had the smoked tuna dip, which was creamy and very good! The Asian ribs appetizer had a good flavor but was overcooked. Had a strawberry blond mojito which was very tasty, but overpriced at $15 for a tiny glass. I would have had a second and spent more overall if the... read more

Had a 8:30PM reservation got a table at 9;15 ordered a drink and waited 30 minutes for it. Had dinner at 10;15 and finished after 11PM. Got many apologies for the poor service but no compensation. Good food not worth the wait.

Dave's grill is one of the best restaurants in Montauk! Although they do not take reservations in advance, you can call that day to be placed on the list. The food is good size portions, fresh sea food daily and the chocolate bag is a desert not to be missed!

It is always fun going to Dave's. The food is consistent and some of the specials are outstanding. The fish stew is great and the fresh fish of the day is outstanding. Desserts are generous and delicious. The atmosphere is local, friendly and laid back. The inability to make a reservation except at 4pm on the day you want to... More

I wasn't there this year but over the years I've visited it's always been consistently delicious, lovely view, and we were never sorry we spent the big bucks to eat there! Hard to get in but worth it!

From the minute you walk in the door and are greeted by Julie you feel like you've come to a warm, friendly place. As many times as we've eaten here it never fails to please. The service is well trained and always attentive. Dave's sound track is just the right volume so you can enjoy both the music and conversation.... More

The service was friendly, the food was okay, a little bland. We both had daily specials, seafood and pot roast and the wine special. After dinner we went to the bar for a drink. Bartender served us and went to the end of the bar to talk to regulars, didn't even acknowledge us when we left. Even so, we would... More

Those lucky diners who know about Dave's Grill know that it is among the very best on the East End of Long Island. Since our last visit many years ago Dave's has grown into a handsome series of artfully lit rooms, developed a truly refined menu and cuisine, and become a seriously fine dining experience-with a happy and vibrant crowd...
