The restaurant is on the second floor, has wonderful ouitdoor as well as indoor seating, and offers a great menu for lunch. The views are spectacular.

It doesn't get better than this. We've dined here several times. The setting is spectacular. Beautiful views of the sunset, the inlet and the returning fishing boats. Have a predinner cocktail on the deck before dinner. This is a no reservation place so on the weekends the wait can be 45 minutes. But the great thing about this place is... More

I was really impressed by the food here. The Thai mussels are the best I ever had. Clams on the half shell had the seafood sauce done right seasoned perfectly. Don't leave without having the lobster bisque absolutely fabulous , its rich creamy and compliments any seafood entrée. The nice surprise was the sushi. The variety is surprising when all... More

Have dined here several times over the summer. Food is consistently good. Love the lobster roll on a buttery brioche bun. Full of tender lobster meat. Fish tacos are the best! Made with fluke and served with sides of salsa and guacamole. Sushi is always fresh and creative. Great atmosphere. Not the typical "Hampton" restaurant. Wait staff and bartenders are... More

This restaurant is right on the inlet with the most beautiful water views all around. It has inside and outside dining, with chairs in the back yard to sit, relax and enjoy the view. The food is excellent and the staff is kind and friendly.

Very disappointing food. Clam chowder very thick with unusual taste (sage??). Sushi very fresh. Scallops in penne with shrimp/scallops sweet and delicious--not so much the shrimp. Huge portion but cream sauce very heavy. Service friendly. Eat indoors or out. Pricey for the quality but I guess you pay extra for absolutely gorgeous sunset/inlet view.

Beautiful spot. The decor is disappointing and the food was truly awful- tasteless, slathered in butter, and the portions were enormous. The waitress was gruff and unfriendly and service was slow. Blech.

We had been to the Inlet several times previously, but not in a few years. We were looking forward to our visit, especially since we enjoyed our previous trips to the restaurant. Unfortunately, the Inlet is rather symptomatic of what has occurred in Montauk over the past few years. Long waits, pushy customers, an indifferent wait staff and a definite... More

While walking around Gossman's in Montauk...I am glad I notice this restaurant across the way and that I followed a friend's recommendation. It was worth the drive around. The mussels were delicious and the fish tacos too! Tasty Bloody Mary's too! Try to sit outside!
