Dee-lish and always fresh!

Always a long wait and they don't take reservations, but we keep coming back. Great food and view. Fish burrito is amazing, perfect balance of crispy ingredients with the Cajun spices fish. Scallops were also great as were the mussell appetizers. Downstairs waiting area is kind of cool, sort of... read more

Loved the location and scenery of this restaurant. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very relaxing atmosphere. They have both indoor and outdoor seating. Save your appetite because their portions are very generous. Enjoyed everything we ordered and their seafood is top notch.

While staying a week a year in Montauk, we always dine at selected restaurants including Inlet Seafood. Last year I had my soft shell crab which was soo good and I was disappointed that this was not on the menu this time. I ordered bass with rissotto, another ordered the LI Roast Duck, and my husband had shrimp and scallop... More

My husband and I visited the Inlet and were not impressed. Dining room is upstairs ( there is an elevator). DR does have nice water view. I ordered Flounder Picatta. Fish was fresh but preparation was not. Fish tasted as if it was cooked earlier and then warmed. Sauce was not lemony in the least. My husband ordered scallops. His... More

We went to the Inlet to see the sunset and we weren't disappointed. The sunset was fantastic. The outside seating could have been a little better. The food was delicious. I highly recommend the black cherry Cosmo. My flounder was great! The risotto was somewhat tasteless. I would return.

The fresh seafood here is very good. We dinned inside as the weather did not permit the patio to be open. The food was great but it is a bit loud inside which takes away from the overall experience. We felt crowded in. Service was good given how busy it was.

Inlet Seafood is a great place for lunch. I wanted seafood, but something a bit different. I had a Cajun Fish Burrito, and it was really good. Next time, I would try the shrimp sandwich. The place was not overly crowded on a weekday, but I bet it is packed at night or on weekends. Montauk is known for seafood,... More

Great views accompanied by very good food. In a lot of places this would be the very best restaurant around, but there are some tough competitors in Montauk. All of the seafood items had by our party of six were quite good, and the sunset view just iced the cake.

this is a great restaurant with a stunning sunset view - very important to me. Food was great and service very well done. We have been there twice and loved it both times.
