My wife and I took a long ride to go out to the wineries in the Hamptons and loved it. We wanted to go out east more in Montauk to have a nice dinner with a perfect view. We passed by the Surfside Inn and it was amazing. Devon and the rest of the crew were great. I loved the... More

This place says Montauk!!!!! The food was amazing and so was the service. Good view of the ocean and the price was normal for the area. A must

Went here recently with friends. The room was rather uncomfortable, and generally needed an upgrade. The food was mediocre, and the staff was pleasant enough. I ordered fish, which was overcooked and not very flavorful. I would pass on this place.

After 30 years of visiting Montauk area we finely found their hidden treasure in restaurants . The Surfside Inn on old Montauk highway is by far the best. On Sunday I had the most wonderful prepared fluke with Frances's sauce over a bed of spinach . My wife had a beautiful 11/2 lbs lobster with shrimp . I'm not knocking... More

Meal was very good, service was attentive, price was fair. Lobster rav and fresh cod both nicely prepared. As we stayed at Hartman's, right next door, we decided to once again visit the Surfside Inn. Its been a few years, no disappointments. Recommend to anyone heading to Montauk.

Made our annual trip to Montauk later than usual this year. Stayed at Surfside Inn. Rooms are simple, hosts are funny and gracious. The highlight is always dinner at the restaurant. All the food is consistently good. But the Halibut, the fish of the day, had the lightest lemon caper sauce and fresh spinach. Perfectly cooked. Extraordinary! We will be... More

We just experienced another excellent meal at Surfside. We began with the homemade huckleberry lemonade, which is the perfect summer cocktail. It was a tough choice for appetizers, but we went with the veggie dumplings: perfectly crisp and tasty. Our entrees spanned the spectrum from delicious, fall-off-the-bone mango barbecue ribs to the ultimate rare ahi tuna encrusted in Chef Gary's... More

Went there on a whim. Ate swordfish on the patio on a cool September evening. Didn't need reservations just walked in. The staff is very nice and the food was good. It was a Friday and they had live music.
