Excellent food, attentive service...

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.

One of the last standing, authentic restaurant's in MTK and there are a few great reasons for that: excellent food and drink, best ocean views on the East End, fantastic service and a piece of Montauk's History, unspoiled.

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
