Hostess rude and brusque. Food just okay. Entree came before we were done with appetizers. Rushed and not welcoming. Martinis good. Bartender very good.

Got to the restaurant and there was no wait. After 2 minutes of being seated outside, we asked to be moved inside and we're told no, there's other people ahead of us and it would be an hour. It was so windy that other people's mussel shells and artichoke leaves were blowing into us. Waitress was apologetic and attentive. The... More

When most of Montauk is overly crowded and the parking difficult, this is a fine place to go for a good meal and wonderful views. The menu offers a good variety including the classic lobster roll for lunch, complete with a right tasty French fries and rustic coleslaw. It wasn't the best I've had, but very good, and made for...

This was our first trip to Montauk and Inlet Seafood Restaurant. The views from this restaurant are fantastic, you don't want to leave. The food was very good. We had the lobster roll, fish and chips, sushi and fish tacos, and everyone thought their meals were delicious. Thank you to our waiter, the man from Tipperary. He provided great service.... More

I have been to the Inlet several times. The food is always good. The sushi is always amazing and that's why we return. The waiters and waitresses need a bit more training. They aren't very friendly. They don't believe in "Service with a smile." Maybe when we return we will be greeted differently.

We go to sit at the bar and have a martini along with mussels. The mussels are the best in Montauk. Get there around sunset and its a perfect dinner

The food was only okay and the service was not good. It is a great place to see the sunset but I would not come back based on the service. The waitress was nasty as if she was doing me a favor by serving us. It was a shame a very costly dinner for not a good experience. There are... More

We had a fabulous sushi lunch at Inlet. Great tuna tartare, yellowtail with jalapeños, blue crab rolls, salmon rolls, and tuna rolls. Freshest fish imaginable! Incredible views and welcoming service add up to a perfect lunch.
