We were unsure how good the seafood would be at a Long Island named/themed restaurant in the middle of the Rockies, but Montauk carries a nice variety of seafood items, and they are all fresh and well-prepared. Service was prompt, and the hostess was diligent in insuring that diners needs are met if the servers are busy. We dined during... More

I have never tasted trout that was so delicious. Everything was fantastic! The appetizers were great and the enters divine. Even the carrot cupcake for dessert, shared by 3 of us, was the best carrot cake I've ever tasted. You do not want to miss this experience!

We chose this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews and the menu. We both had the Seared Ahi with stir fried shrimp and vegetables and a rice cake and it was excellent. Michael, our server, was outstanding and generous with his time to direct us to local resources to gather information on the early history of the Vail area, before... More

The restaurant offers 20.16% off the entire bill during this offseason period. The food was excellent. We started with a shrimp ceviche which was nicely spiced with papers and pickled onions and was flavorful. I had Alaskan Halibut that was grilled to perfection which is not easy to do with that fish. My wife had Alaskan King Crab legs which... More

In our 6 nights, we ate at Montauk twice. There were lots of fish choices,and one could choose the way in which the fish was prepared. The wine list had prices beginning at $30. When we were there the menu was discounted 20.16% - an unexpected bonus.

From the wine to the entrees, everything was good. We had a nice bottle of Chardonnay to start. Our entrees were all selected from the grill portion of the menu. We had trout, halibut and the pork chop. All were very tasty. They were accompanied with two side choices. Just an excellent dinner with good service, food and fun. In... More

This is a wonderful place with incredibly fresh seafood. Oysters were yummy and you could pick a variety for your tray. The seared tuna is a must have. Nathan our waiter had the best up beat friendly personality. He made our night. Specialty cocktails are great also. Can't remember the door hostess' name but she was so bubbly and cute!... More

We were visiting friends that took us to Montauk Seafood Grill. They had a two-man band that kept us entertained with music from every genre. The restaurant is located at the base of one of the ski lifts in the area. A beautiful area!!!
