Good seafood and service

Next door to our motel (Briney Breezes) and recommended by the motel people. Seafood was delicious, steak was over done but tasty. Service was very nice.

My wife and I stayed at the Inn for a memorable birthday weekend topped off by a most delicious dinner right downstairs in the dining room. The owners, Helene and Tom, and their staff could not have been friendlier or more accommodating. At dinner, my broiled flounder entrée was fresh, perfectly prepared and seasoned. The mashed potatoes were great. The... More

Previous years this sleeper was always accommodating and a sure shot , especially on busier weekends,, a throwback in time, a bed and breakfast type of establishment, known more for brunch on Old Montauk Highway in Montauk. Fast forward to Saturday evening, a party of 10, family and friends celebrating each other, laid back, happy…willing to see if we can... More

We had a reservation on Sunday evening at 7:30. We arrived 5 minutes early and were told to sit anywhere we want. We selected a booth at the window overlooking the ocean between two other occupied booths. There were 4 other tables in the restaurant with diners. The manager (owner?) said someone would be right with us. 5 minutes later... More

On the way back from the beach for a cocktail this place is excellent. Even if you are staying in East Hampton it is worth the trip. Make sure you are wearing your Orlebar Brown swim trunks and Maui Jim Sunglasses with a shabby chic tee. Although whatever you are wearing the wait staff will likely be off duty models... More

Surfside is the quitisenshel Montauk restaurant. The location and building style reflects the charm of Montauk. The food is always fresh and beautifully presented. Don't miss the ribs! And the warmth of the owners Tom and Helene as well as the staff should not be missed.

We have visited the Surfside regularly for many years so it was quite a shock to us tonight to find that the quality of both the food and the service was substantially sub-par. From the way we were seated in a less than inviting manor, the menus tossed on the table and the gentleman who seated us walking away quickly... More
