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

That nice restaurant, not only have seafood but some veggie dishes too, large and very cozy with a great full Bar and a Sushi Bar too. There is also at least 3 different decks with great views. The personnel is very friendly and polite, so the attention is second to none, our server (and Bartender too), Matt, make us feel... More

My husband and I went for lunch here. The location is beautiful and it was a lovely day so we were able to sit outside on the balcony. We asked the waitress questions about our food, but she couldn't give much information. We had calamari, which was very oily. My husband ordered the dish of the day, which turned out... More

We arrived around sunset and found it very crowded. However, we waited at the bar for our table and enjoyed the sunset from there. Prices are quite high, the fool was good but not special. Go for the ambiance.

This is one great sea food restaurant. The sea food is fresh and cooked to perfection. There are daily specials most likely based on local fisherman catches. We had excellent calamari for an appetizer. I then ordered swordfish and my wife ordered tuna. Both of us were very happy with presentation and taste. The prices were very reasonable for a... More

We were very dissapointed, specially after seeing the great reviews. Two of three appetizers were great: the cauliflower tempura and shishito peppers. The parsmesan fried calamari was so chewy and tough. The cod fish was good. The chips were refried , hard and dry. When we asked for some fresh fries they took them and brought same fries refried again,... More

This restaurant overlooking the water at Montauk's harbor area is a delightful place for delicious seafood. The menu has lots of options but here seafood must be king. My husband had 2 sushi rolls and both were beautiful and he loved them. I had scallops on mushroom risotto and it was perfect. We each had started with a cup of... More

The view was great and we had the lobster roll and mussels which were super. The view was super at 360 degree and on the second floor. We had a lunch and it was not crowded on the last week of September 2016.
