Don't be let the signs that greet you of no whining and no cel phones scare you off. Great nachos and burgers plus a usual Bar Food menu (all good). Being that it's Montauk ~ an oceanfront hamlet know for its fishing ~ one can also expect to get good seafood dishes like soft-shell crab sandwiches and my favorite ~... More

We stopped here as others because it was one of the only restaurants that was open on the Friday we visited Montauk. But, when we had been there before it had caught our eye as being a local's joint due to the number of vehicles outside, when many others had empty lots. The decor is eclectic and some maybe not...

This is a little local love - - and looks like a hole in the wall if you don't know what you're looking for. Luckily, our cousins are locals and take us to the best places when we visit. If you are offended or sensitive, don't even shadow the door. Seriously. The signs and humor is funny for sure but... More

If you like to eat burnt food fried in rancid grease, this is the place for you! Soft Shelled Crabs were coated with a heavy breadcrumb and then burnt in rancid grease along with the accompanying french fries. This is such a simple meal to prepare, I can't believe a restaurant can't get this right. Mussel appetizer was saturated with... More

And, the baked clams were awesome, too. We knew this was going to be a great experience, and are now sure that anytime we head out to Montauk, The Dock will be our go-to bar! Thanks George for making us feel at home!

Stopped in for a late burger and beer with my wife. I had first eaten in The Dock almost 40 years ago. Little has changed, the food is still awesome, the beer is still cold and the price is right. This is Montauk the way it should be, if you want a Hamptons feel, I would strongly suggest you try... More

There were people waiting to enter at noon on Sunday and all the tables were full by 1PM. Good food, reasonable prices for this area and fun atmosphere.

Great place, great food. Opens at noon, not a minute prior. Turn off your cell phones. There's a lot of interesting things in the restaurant to look at.
