The Dock is one of those places that is ALWAYS good. I have not been there for 10 years - visited Montauk on a weekend vacation and it was just as good as it was 10 years ago. Burger is the best in town, the Mussels are to die for, and the Tuna Melts are outstanding too. Always a pleasure... More

Recommended by the Montauk Manor staff, warned us that cell phones were not allowed. In fact there is a list of things posted on the door to ensure that you are aware that this is not just an average place ! No screaming kids, no moody drunks etc, you get the point, come in , feel welcome but don't cause... More

This is one of those quirky pub/restaurants with great staff, good food and just the most wonderful cosy atmosphere. You feel like a local the minute you step inside!

Went to the Dock this past weekend. As usual, the seafood was fresh, and perfectly cooked. I've been there many times, so I am never surprised by the great food, hard working attentive service, and the freshest Guinness in town. What was bewildering, is how a group of three patrons, apparently from a place that dictates what freedom of expression... More

This is a Montauk hold out! I believe it is the only restaurant that has been in the same location and run by the same family for at least 30 years. My husband and I always get the same thing if something on the special board doesn't catch our eye, and, as I can attest, it is consistently good. The... More

Discovered The Dock and were not sure to start with but pleased we visited. Beer was good and despite some reviews we were treated very politely by the staff. Very mixed crowd obviously some local mixed in but everyone seemed happy and there were families dining. Lots of signs telling you what you can't do but my wife and I... More

My wife and I went here thinking we could get some good seafood, considering the restaurant is right next to Gosman's Fish Market. However, it was very cold inside, so the proprietor, George, started up the wood burning stove, only to smoke up the entire place. Now they had to open the doors to air out the place and that...
