Although still on the menu, the waitress quipped , " no more lobsters ". Got subpar shrimp cocktail , shrimp cut in... More

We went here based on a recommendation. The food was really good. The staff was very nice. The setting is what made it unique. I think the entire dining area had a view of the horizon. Perfect for watching the sun set into the ocean. Spectacular. Enjoy.

The inlet is on east lake dr. So it is going to be a little bit of a drive from town or the other restaurants near gosmans, but that is the only down side, if you consider that a down side. I took my lovely bride there for lunch and although the menu was slightly limited if you don't do... More

It's off the beaten path. A great place to eat if you want a view. Great bar. Nice view of the inlet. A lot of great sushi choices on the menu. Specializes in seafood. It does get crowded on the weekends

The view is great. The food is good. But the staff are very rude. There are plenty of other places in Montauk that value customer service. I hope they get their act together as the location is great for sunset

We love this restaurant and look forward to it each vacation! We two couples vacation in Montauk each year and truly enjoy our dinners here- lunch is great, too. Casual, eat inside or out, the amazing sunsets and great cocktails make it romantic, a collaboration of Montauk fishermen, sparkling fresh food. Outside seating available. fyi...Inside can get very noisy due... More

Best sunset on the East End. Have been to this restaurant many times and it is always fun with good food. Owned by local fishermen and the fish is always fresh. Great views of the inlet and ocean from almost everywhere. Out door dining and friendly bar. I keep going back
