“Great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014 via mobile

Amazing food and view. The staff was friendly and gracious. They were extremely attentive to our table. I would like to address the previous review saying this was not a kid friendly place. Our children were treated very kindly because they have manners. They did not run around and sat in their seats (what children should so in a restaurant) Overall, great experience!

“Exquisite.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

Exquisite seafood. This is that kind of cozy restaurants with a heart stopping view, in front of the Atlantic Ocean. This time we got the sunset. The best seafood and comfy. Gorgeous and splendid seafood. The best choice, number one for dinner in Montauk. I had the duck skins, the pork ribs, the shrimp cocktail,
The bottle of pinot noir was light, acceptable. The food was alluring, appealing and provocative.

“Not kid friendly!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

After reading reviews that it was kid friendly and calling to hear the same....as we walked up the stairs there was a huge sign that read..." Please keep children Quiet and they must remain in their seats!" WHAT? So we proceeded anyway and as we did my two yo daughter touched the chalk board with the specials...wiping away a little writing and we got a "if looks could kill" stare! I'm sorry but that's NOT kid friendly. I'm all for kids behaving well at restaurants but if you want to be that strict then put an age limit on your "kid friendly" restriction! Oh and btw we left and will never go back:)

“Clever, Consistent Catch of the Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

Always our 1st stop for dinner - also for the last 15 years. The best local fish dishes - halibut, striped bass, fluke - clever but not overly complicated - the fish is the star - sometimes Asian flavors, other times the American South or Latin America. Their chefs return year after year so the menu is consistent, the servings are generous. Other great choices - the mango ribs, shrimp and veggie pastas, mussels (always!) and new this year - popcorn shrimp with a soy ginger glaze. And right on the ocean, comfortable dining room and really great service (great to see the same waitstaff year after year)!

“An Annual Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

Once again, my wife and i and our friends enjoyed another great meal and evening at Surfside Inn. We've been coming out to Montauk for over 15 years and since we discovered this wonderful restaurant we always end our vacation here with a great meal. This year , three of us had the halibut special with a horseradish crust and it was excellent. My other friend had the seared tuna. He loved it. The service is very friendly and the view is one of the best of the ocean. And, its out of town where it is getting more and more hectic. For now.
