When there with wife for a quick lunch. I had a large Bloody Mary and a grilled chicken sandwich. My wife had the arugula salad and a dire coke. We sat at the bar since all the tables were taken. The service was outstanding the food was delicious and the price was fair. I would highly recommend. Excel let atmosphere... More

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!

Stopped in several times during our week in Montauk: lunch, drinks, appetizers. Staff is great. Love the mussels, tuna melt, etc.

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.

Montauk has changed so much, not to our liking either. All the classic Montauk / fisherman's pubs restaurants have been replaced with all this upscale / tapas places which are grossly overpriced and a stuffy atmosphere. At The Dock - it's like it was 40 years ago. Down home pub with really good food and a carefree atmosphere. The crowd... More

We shared the Kale Caesar salad, a daily special, along with a bowl of the Montauk Clam Chowder for a late lunch. Both were excellent. Although the place was crowded, the hostess was able to sit us at the bar as we requested. The staff was very accommodating and attentive. Would highly recommend a visit just for the ambiance.

The Dock is a special bar restaurant. Good busy bar and ever a surprisingly excellent restaurant. The food is always fresh, well prepared and amazingly consistent all through the many years that I have been going there. Best burgers in MONTAUK along with many daily specials. Waitresses are always friendly and efficient. And then there's George!

A great places for those who want to go where locals go here in MTK. You either behave by the rules, or your called out and shamed by George (the owner) in front of everyone. Then again, it's pretty nice to actually hear the people your dinning with instead of a person talking on a cell phone. The food is... More
