Worth a visit.

Stopped there for lunch midweek. Small, friendly crowd. It fits its description, not pretentious. Rules are listed everywhere; next to mounted animalheads and pics of days gone by. Bulletin board is a "must see." Good burgers and EXCELLENT fries. Wait staff is courteous and efficient. Certainly... read more

It was our worst meal in Montauk. It was our last night and had we not had much better meals we would never come back to this town. It took forever to get our food and when it came it was a disgrace. When in say "forget about it" just forget about it and definitely don't go there. They should... More

Small local pub with casual good food. Ambiance is dark but always a good stop when staying in Montauk Harbour. We ate nachos and burgers. The nachos were huge as well as the burgers. The food was very good.

The food was excellent. The place was very crowded and had a long line outside it on a Thursday night. We just beat the line, luckily, and got a table immediately. What was a problem for me was the lack of air conditioning. It was very humid and I'm not one who does well without air conditioning. I wish I... More

The dock is such a fun place to be. I have been there many times and always find something new in there that makes me smile. The food is also amazing and not the pricey for the quality of food that you get. The staff are also pleasant and helpful. Full 10/10 for the dock after spending 2 summers in... More

We just wanted a small bite to hold us over before dinner. And this was just the place to hit. No cell phones or unruly kids allowed!!! A quirky joint with great food as pub fare goes, and lots to look at during the wait. The staff is very accommodating and friendly.

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 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.
