From the Welcome to the "Thank You for Visiting" the visit can only be described as outstanding. The Ocean views are spectacular. Nothing on the Menu disappoints, don't miss the Baby Back Ribs! Dinning should always be a event and this was truly memorable from appetizer to dessert. The accommodations are country inn excellent and all of the staff makes... More

We booked here for dinner. Showed up and were created and seated with a warm welcome. Romantic view of the ocean. Appetisers crab cake was delicious flavour and texture, and the popcorn ginger sesame shrimp was a real treat. Mains lobster ravioli and whole lobster were superb. Side of seasoned sweet potato wedges highly recommended. Finished off with sharing a... More

We had salmon, ribs and mussels between is and not a thing was left on the plates. Service was good and friendly ,... More

Haven't eaten at this attractive place in years, mostly because I forget it's there. Amazing that on a Saturday of 4th of July weekend it was less than half full. It may advertise kid friendly, but it's not, which is why I highly recommend it. When parents complain about signs asking you to keep your children seated and quiet, that's... More

My wife and I spent the weekend at the Inn. The room was spacious and very clean. The view was spectacular. We had dinner there, on both nights and it was outstanding. The fish was fresh, the ribs sweet and spicy and the fillet of beef was tender and flavorful. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. When ever we visit... More

The Surfside Inn is a very pretty restaurant overlooking the dunes and the ocean. The food was excellent! My husband had the steak and grilled brussel sprouts...yummy! Get the mussels...they are amazing! Service was great and we were treated very nicely by everyone there. This is a definite if you are visiting Montauk!

My sister in law and I and our 94 year old mom had dinner here tonight at my moms request. What an excellent night the staff could not have been more accommodating - from helping us get seated to treating my mom like an extra special guest. Our waiter - and I apologize but I didn't get his name but... More

Chef Gary was very accommodating with our group of 35, including kids. The food was fresh & delicious. They took our large group and provided excellent service! Not easy to find places out east who would accommodate so many in short notice. Great atmosphere, great food, great service!!

We had a terrific meal at the Surfside Inn. We had great drinks at the bar first. The very friendly bartender gave us some tips about the area. We then were seated in a nice booth with a beautiful view of the ocean. Our waiter, Richard, was well informed and friendly. I had the steamed lobster special and it was... More
