A trip

This place could be with a traveling carnival. It is eclectic in its decor and right on with its food. Will never forget it. Had as much fun and enjoyment looking around as did eating. Its a no phone zone and thats great! Enforced by lunatics with bullhorns.

Recommended by locals, off the beaten path, tucked away on the docks near Gosman's. It's a small, darkish bar and dining room. Friendly host, ok wait staff. We heard that if you used your cell phone there the host would throw you out. Good local fresh food. Eclectic decorations (ok except for the gross animal heads). Fun to try a... More

Went to the dock after a day of whale watching with Viking in Montauk. Food for the second visit was as good as the first time. The fish is soooo fresh and the beer always cold.... Service is also excellent.... Can't wait ti the next visit

Perfect for a casual night out. The Dock is filled with locals so it must be doing something right. As the name implies, situated right at the Montauk Harbor dock and the Little Necks could not have been fresher. For the land lubbers, try the burger - just enough to satisfy any appetite

This place tries really hard to be a dive bar. The decor is very cute - they have kitschy stuff all over the place- and we were quite charmed by the look of the place but it's a bar first and a restaurant second. The food was decent (the clams casino were quite good) but it's not a place to... More

Every time my husband and I are in Montauk we make sure to eat here. The food is very fresh and a good value. It is where the locals eat and we can see why.

The quintessential Montauk joint---good food, lots of locals, a classic bar plus the 'tude from the dude", proprietor George Watson. Funky old in-your-face "atmosphere" yes. But, the best mussels on the East End and good beer on tap. As George states on The Dock's window: "We've our standards...up yours."

Great service, fantastic seafood! I ventured in on a recommendation from a friend and was happy to have taken her advice. I will be back!

Love this dive bar! Great seafood dishes and hilarious signs. Laid back and cool. Try the Tuna melt or the Lobster BLT if they have it. It's AMAZING!! If you're lucky some locales will grace you with their hilarious one liners at the bar.
