We celebrated our 23rd anniversary here. The staff were so welcoming, everyone had made note of our anniversary and stopped to wish us well. food was so fresh, presentation wonderful, lively atmosphere. Our waiter was charming and surprised us with a complimentary dessert with a candle in it. I went to the powder room while my husband got the check... More

Very pricey, but well worth every penny. The wait staff is cordial, polite and very attentive. The food was phenomenal. I recommend this place for a lovely on the ocean experience.

We enjoyed the Surfside restaurant so much, we went twice for dinner during our Sept. week in Montauk. We were happy to be seated at one of the 5 inside tables with white linens and teal glassware overlooking the ocean both times. Our professional, informative servers Mario and Richard immediately brought menus, described the specials, took our drink orders and... More

We were staying down the road so we went in for dinner. I've been coming to Montauk for 40+ years and have never been to this place. The owner got us into a table even though the place was packed. The meal was fantastic as was the service. Try for a table facing the ocean.

I love this place not only for its excellent cuisine but because of the sign as you enter stating that if you have children they must stay seated and be perfectly behaved so as not to upset the other guests. bravo surfside inn for caring about people like myself who have been upended by these little brats and their parents...

We ate at Surfside on Sunday evening for the first time in six years. We chose Surfside because Harvest had no reservations available and one of our party likes to dine with tablesclothes. We were a party of four and seated promptly at a table by the window where we looked out at the ocean. We wanted to relax with... More

The food was adequate and overpriced. The waiter weemed like he wanted to be someplace else. No customer service at all. Not a smile, not reason to return.

This restaurant is located in Montauk on the Old Montauk Hwy, so if you do not have a care here, you'd harder reach the place from the center or the harbor. The local is nice, and the building is a mix of a seashore villa and a ship. The mix between sea and sand is continuous and is stressed by... More

I came here for lunch on Labor Day Weekend. The ocean view is a very big plus. I had the field greens salad followed by a lobster roll, which the waiter said was "The best." It was good, not sure about "best," but the price at $18.95 was reasonable. The First Mate's Tartufo (raspberry sorbet and vanilla gelato with a... More

If you are looking for a reasonably priced but excellent meal and don't need to be seen in a hip restaurant with lots of noisy customers, definitely consider the Surfside Inn. Service was gracious and not rushed, the seafood was fresh and delicious, and the ocean views marvelous, as we sat outside on the front porch. Great, stress-free evening.
