“Fun causal outdoor dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Walking around town looking for a simple, perhaps not so expensive place for dinner. We heard fun music and a wonderful night to just eat outside.
We had one scallop dish which really tasted great but was entirely too small a portion and I don't like places that specialize in huge portions. Hubby had grilled chicken on top of salad which was fresh and tasty. Had no appetizers or desserts so can't comment on that portion of dinner. The staff were refreshing and young looking to just make a living. The music was provided by a local band and was fun to listen to.
Would definitely go back for a simple meal, a drink and relaxing atmosphere in what has become a very busy summer town.

“Great food, okay service in an interesting setting.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

This was a really pleasant surprise. The friend food here is cooked at a high temp, which is should be, so that everything was crispy. Great fries, delicious empanadas, excellent tacos, good fish and chips, good Choripan sandwich and chicken sandwich. The only thing missing was a salad dressing, which I had to go to the kitchen myself after being unable to get the waitresses attention.

“Fuad Tacos worth the visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

If only going for a drink, great atmosphere, live music, central location, friendly wait staff. If going for food, everything we ordered was fresh, tasted great, and was well prepared... Burger, Rib eye, Caesar...the fish tacos were a stand out. Packed with fish, salsa, spices and slaws. Only downside is a bit pricey...but seems all of Montauk has become expensive.

“Okay Food And Expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

I don't know why my family and I always end up at the Gig Shack at least once when we are in Montauk. It is centrally located and never crowded. I know that they will have something my kids will like and it is all okay (my husband and I got fish tacos, two kids got a burger and one got the ribs), but it is really expensive, especially when you have kids that won't finish a whole plate of food ($25 for two tacos??) On the plus side, you can sit outside and it is right in town. The atmosphere is beachy and casual. But watch your wallet for just okay food.
