We had early dinner in this bar / restaurant, the menu is limited but the fish is very fresh. The raw clams are delicious and very fresh, flounder and soft shell crab are delicious. It is located very close to the docks and is open on Wednesday, be aware that off season a lot of restaurants are closed on Tuesday... More

This is a regular stop for me. I often drive 30 minutes to go there. Located right next to commercial fishing boats, it's always packed with the fisherman. Tourists love this place and the food is good.

What a hoot! Good down by the dock in the boat yard pub foot. An irreverent come hang out with us attitude pervaded through out the place. A sign [one of may] hung on the window stating no locals allowed. Pure laugh out loud funny. Meanwhile there were stand up bars outside from where the local guys could drink their... More

I gave 3 stars only because we had drinks--did not order any food. This was an after dinner stop having walked around Gosman's dock for a while. Inside this is an adult version of "I SPY". Really fun to look around. A mix of locals and visitors.

We were a group of 8 adults touring Montauk Point on our motorcycles that stopped in at 2:30 in the afternoon for lunch. I went in & it took over 5 minutes for someone to even acknowledge me so I could inquire about getting a table for 8. She doesn't even answer me! Then another woman comes over and says... More

Very dark and lively! Pub menu. Nothing special but cozy local vibe. Good location to walk around the docks.

The food here was a bar set high, for me! I was getting a little tired of over priced, high-end places with dress codes, that the food was just mediocre. The Dock was the best meal on my trip! The prices were very reasonable, especially for the quality. I had the shrimp chowder, and the tuna melt - I wish... More

An old-fashioned Montauk original. Leave your pretensions at the door and play by the rules here. Show up with everyone on your party and have a laid-back attitude and you'll have a great time. Don't gab on your phone, don't let your kids run all over, and don't fuss about getting seated when you're an incomplete party. Sometimes you have... More

I had an impromptu dinner at The Dock. Best decision ever! The food was the best I had in Montauk! I highly recommend the raw clams and mussels appetizer.😋 It's a very laid-back setting. So come ready to eat and leave with a full stomach!

Thank Channell M
