Inlet is off the beaten trail in Montauk. Its easy to find though. Large restaurant with fantastic views. Go for sunset but you may have time it right because there could be a wait. As for the food, it was delectable! The apps were scrumptious. The entrees were superb. My husband had seafood medley over pasta Milanese style. I decided... More

The view from this restaurant is just amazing and is worth seeing. The food was good and the service excellent. The manager Merrie was as pleasant and welcoming as can be. This has become a regular stop on our visits to Montauk.

The appetizers (calamari and blue crab sushi) were mediocre. One entree (fluke) was excellent and the other two not very good--bland and over cooked tuna steak and over sauced lobster ravioli. Service was poor, we waited 10 minutes for a refill of water and people who arrived 15 minutes after us got their food 10 minutes before us. The view... More

The view is amazing. Sunsets are spectacular. The food is OK. I had the Seafood fra diavalo. The sauce was lacking in flavor but the clams and mussels were fresh. My wife had the scallops and she said they were very good. Tables around us had ordered the sushi and it looked good. We will try that next time.

They have the best tacos! Also the grandsons enjoy this restaurant which has A children's menu. Many MTK restaurants don't cater to children but this one does. Ismail matter but the warm small rolls are our fave. All in all a gr8 experience! We always go to The Inlet!

This was our first time to Inlet Seafood. They do not take reservations so we decided to go a little early. There are plenty of places to have a drink whether it be on the comfortable downstairs couches..or outside watching the boats go by or on the upstairs deck if you have to wait. Great staff from the hostesses to... More

Yes, the sunset view is perfect but it's free you can walk along the beach and enjoy it. The clam soup is the best , roasted half duck is good too. But the scallop and mussel.. Sorry , have to be a one star. After all, $165 for 3 adult and a kid for such a meal is a little... More

This is our must visit restaurant. It never disappoints. The fish is always so fresh and delicious. Same goes for the sushi...Your view is Montauk harbor,....you can watch the fishing boats sail into and out while you sip your cocktails or while dining. If you're there late enough, a great sunset is there for your pleasure. Plus, the staff is... More

Great sunset, great fresh seafood, great service. This place is consistent time and again. All the specials, even their fresh sushi is terrific. Prices are reasonable. Don't be scared off by the long wait times...it's always quicker than what they say. I love this place, the setting is perfect, the service is great and the food is terrific. Everytime I... More

Inlet Seafood is a favorite. Best sushi in MONTAUK along with a great sunset view. Service is always good. Always busy in the summer but Mary the manager runs a tight ship and all flows well. Very good seafood along with the sushi.
