This appears to be a late in the evening place. At 7:30 only medium crowd but it was packed by the time we left. We have been here many times and are never disappointed. The pork shank is a particular favorite and my friend lover it. I tried the lobster ravioli this time for a change of pace. It was... More

Not sure what happened at the Surfisde but this meal clearly wasn't as good as the one we had a couple of years ago. First off, they need to update their website as their are some differences. We started with the "clams surfside" which are essentially baked whole (which was a good thing) calms. Over all they were good but... More

We got a prime table on the edge of the patio at 7:30 in the evening in the middle of August. Either we were very lucky or no one goes there. It's the latter and for good reason... the food stinks. The view, however, was lovely and the service was good. Oh, and it's full Hamptons pricing. Stay away.

We found the Surfside Inn restaurant last summer while driving down Old Montauk Highway. It stands out with its beautiful porch overlooking the ocean. We had an amazing dinner that night, and have stopped by for dinner many times since. The staff is always friendly and welcoming and the food is delicious! Wonderful experience! Thank you Surfside Inn!

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
