We visited this restaurant as two couples looking for dinner, drinks and a sunset. This place has great reviews and a waterfront location. We were greeted by a tattooed server who must have been on work release from Sing Sing correctional institute. We triggered her...by asking if we could move from the picnic table next to the chicken wire fence to a vacant table more suitable for dinner. She threw her hands in the air and exclaimed “I can’t deal with this...”. Thinking she may just be having a bad day but also a little intimidated by the possible gang affiliations, we decided to ask the bartender the same question. Based on his response he was obviously trained to deal with a rougher clientele, perhaps the Hell’s Angels. He abruptly and unequivocally stated that he made the rules and there would be no changing tables. So, we paid our inflated bill and left, never to return. Thank you Montauket. We would not have found Gosman’s Restaurant had it not been for your rude, insulting lack of service. We emphatically do NOT recommend this seaside roadhouse. But, if you do brave it, check the math on your bill and protect your belongings.More

One of the best places in montauk for happy hour and sunset is the Montauket. The frozen drinks pairs with this years mandatory “Cuomo apps” felt like old times.

Gorgeous view, but food was average. Nice guitar player. Totally casual, picnic tables. Fun evening.

This restaurant has been in Montauk since the 1920's. Once a rum runners hideout. Now THE PLACE to go to see spectacular sunsets and have a cocktail/beer with your neighbors and friends.

This laid back venue was perfect for the sunset. It was a good vibe and they had a great playlist. Two gripes: no bar snacks (meals only) and everything was served out of single use plastic. How can you look out onto such a beautiful...view of the ocean and be actively destroying it because you can’t be bothered to do the dishes?! Come on.More

This restaurant was off the beaten path a bit and really gave you a neat secluded feeling. The bar is definitely an 'old time' local feeling place and was crowded. We sat out on the deck area and had mussels, broiled seafood platter, and a...cheeseburger. All of the food was delicious and they have really good thick cut fries! Worth a visit!More

The Montauket is a montauk tradition. It’s a montauk casual atmosphere with a flip flop beach feel. It is the best spot to watch the sunset with a cold drink in your hand.

Do not go there expecting food. Bar is great as are the bartenders. Kitchen is a joke they closed it on a Saturday night in July at 7:00 pm. Place ain’t want it use to be

If you want to visit the real Montauk, this is it. Lowkey tavern of local folks at the bar, with the best view of the sunset on Long Island.

This is more of a bar. I think The Inlet would be a better spot for a rehearsal dinner
