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.

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

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!
