Very good dinning experience

Nice setting with dinner on the veranda overlooking the ocean. Seafood was fresh and well cooked. Service was fine. One of the nicer upscale places for dinner in Montauk.

We visited on a Sunday night in July. We did not have reservations and we seated immediately. This place is like other reviewers have stated "Old Montauk". It is quiet and has the most beautiful view of the ocean. Our server was stellar. He was polite, prompt and informative. We shared the vegetable dumplings light and delish. My husband enjoyed...

It's no secret everything in Montauk is expensive, however, this restaurant is well worth the price. It is located about 1 mile from the circle in central Montauk so it can be walked, or driven if the weather is too hot. The interior is very nice with plenty of outdoor seating to enjoy the breezes and absolute picturesque view of... More

Always great to start the summer at Surfside Inn & check out what’s new and what is deliciously the same. New desserts Lemoncello and Toasted Almond were homemade on the premises, and rival Chef Juan’s consistently excellent Key Lime Pie. This year we stuck with the fresh fish specials - striped bass and flounder simply prepared so the fish really... More

What a wonferful find. The view of the ocean was spectacular and the food was fantastic! The fresh fish of the day (flounder) was outstanding, the steak was cooked to perfection and the toasted almond cake was a perfect end. Definitely going back to have the lobster and mussels outside on the deck as the view is the best in... More

We enjoyed another great dinner here during our recent visit to MTK. Started with a Rum Punch - authentic and delicious. Enjoyed the special app of watermelon and goat cheese - refreshing, but the Mussels were one of the best we have had in a long time! Dinner of Cajun Shrimp and Andue sausage had a bit too much smoke.... More

Four of us enjoyed a great meal at the Surfside Inn this weekend. I had the lobster special and my husband had the filet mignon. Perfectly cooked and delicious. Would recommend this to friends and family.
