We went here to celebrate my birthday on a tour of The Hamptons. I had the fish tacos that I found very good. My husband had the fried flounder. He thought it was just okay. The place is very busy and the bar seems popular.

Cute place, locally popular. Unfortunately they took off the fresh whole bellied fried clams which would have saved us the trip to Montauk for fresh fried clams. Nice locally owned and operated management. Attached photo is what they “should” be offering 🙈

It's always crowded and needs larger parking lot. Very casual restaurant with good seafood although one time I ordered lobster and it was quite fishy. I rated a four compared to other restaurants I have been in Montauk which is quite expensive in general.

Called through for a lobster roll lunch. Relaxed and friendly atmosphere with great food and service. Very helpful staff who were totally familiar with the menu. Hot buttered lobster rolls were a delight, as was the key lime pie for dessert. Great atmosphere sitting outside...More

I eat here regularly. Always get the hot lobster roll. The steamers are amazing too! The service is good but not amazing. But who cares when the food is so good! Great place!
