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

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.

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
