The food and service at The Inlet is consistently good - even during the busy season. Their menu, though leaning more on the seafood side, still has many dishes to satisfy most everyone. With a wonderful view of Long Island Sound, a large bar with great bartenders, and just steps away from Gin Beach, it's a far better place then... More

Seafood is fresh and nicely prepared. Sushi is fantastic. In the summer sit outside for scenic views of Lake Montauk. Worth the drive east from town.

Great food and service, I've been there a couple of times and the food is very consistent every time I go. I've had sushi, Caesar Salad, muscles and the shrimp & scallops penne always fresh food, definitely will recommend to anyone.

This restaurant is in a great location and the views brilliant. I like the fact that it is run by local fishermen, and I thought the meals we got were very good. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Couldn't have chosen a better place for sushi in Montauk! The delicious food, outstanding service and scenic views made this the perfect place to celebrate my nephew's 13th birthday.

Yes, you can get good sushi in Montauk. And they have a big selection of the normal fish-joint food on the menu too. Great selection to tap beers. Great views outside of the water and sunsets. It's true that the place was started by three local fishermen tired of seeing such a huge markup on the stuff they caught.

Our first visit to the Inlet was very pleasant, although I'm not sure I'd have chosen a "very good" rating if TA's system didn't lock me into the choice between average and very good (there is a very wide range between those two points). The view and location are outstanding and in contrast to others' comments, we did have very... More

Went on a recommendation from friends. For a "seafood" restaurant overlooking the harbor and bay there wasn't much seafood on the menu. They had steak, duck, chicken, pasta, and a few fish ir seafood dishes. I was surprised cause the menu was touting fresh caught seafood. I guess the duck was caught in their parking lot. We arrived at about... More

Dear Ricky35345, Thank you for taking the time to review Inlet Seafood. I'm very glad that your meal, the tuna steak served over brown rice with bok choy, was "exactly the way I (you) asked for it," and your partner's shrimp and penne dish was good and "tasty." We want to make sure that every diner's meal at Inlet is... More

Inlet has spectacular views, food, and service. It is one of the best places I have ever viewed a sunset form and to sit at the bar before dinner with Juanita is a treat in its self. We had a shrimp appetizer and I had scallops for a main course which were absolutely delicious our server Daniel could not have... More
