Instead of going into the restaurant I went to the take out window which is about 30% cheaper for the same great seafood. Plus one can just sit outside at one of the many nice tables right by the water.

Perfect place in Montauk to watch the boats come through the harbor. Known for their local seafood dishes and sushi . They have two restaurants. Topside is on the upper deck . No children are allowed . The view is great !

Lovely fresh clams, great view. We stopped off with my cousin for a meal, and we got a seat outside overlooking the inlet, which was great. The service was fine, fairly good standard menu, and tasty.

The dining room is closed on Tuesdays, so my wife & I ate upstairs at the Inlet. Since we like to start our vacation with a lobster roll lunch, I paid $26.00 per roll & was disappointed in the quality & portion given for the price. Oh yea,it did come with fries.

Went there with my wife, the two kids and two american cousins. We arrived at 4pm so there was no people, we had a table outside on the edge of the water with a very nice view. We ordered some sushi which was good but not exceptional given the price you pay (4 dollars each for a shrimp nigiri!). I... More

The upside: location The Downside: The food is barely average and overpriced. After ordering from the self service walk up window, you wait around the corner for your food to arrive. It's presented.on paper plates with plastic utensils by cranky teenage girls. Then have a seat at the plastic, dirty, picnic table, where you really don't have a view of... More

Was here with Family, food and service good. A little pricey but that's understandable based on time of year and where you are.
