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!

After being in Montauk which is very pretenious and pricey we happened upon the Dock. It is an adorable little bar filled with friendly locals. The bartenders were super nice. The beer was ice cold and we had some delicious fresh clams on the half shell. So glad we took a chance and visited the Dock. Had a great time!

Favorite place to eat and drink in Montauk. Friendly locals and bar tenders who have been there for years. I look forward to returning every summer. The food is excellent, and they often have gourmet specials. I love this place- decor and all.
