We sat outside for dinner. We went early around 5, and it wasn’t busy when we got there. By the time we left it was packed. We were there on a Wednesday. The linguine with clam sauce was not short on clams! It was scrumptious....I wish I could’ve eaten more. My husband had a steak which he enjoyed. He asked for medium well; it came out well. Not a deal breaker for him. Drinks were good. For an appetizer we tried their jerk wings. They are grilled instead of fried so they take a bit longer. They were delicious!! He even asked our server to leave the plate so he could dip his steak in the remaining sauce lol. Our server was very sweet and pleasant.More

The service and staff at this place are absolutely horrible. They are incredibly rude, they rushed us the entire meal, and the food was inedible. Do not come here - save your money and go somewhere else. Staff is unprofessional and mean.

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.

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.

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.

Great place to take in the crowd and spectacular sunsets on Fort Pond bay. Food is terrible and drinks expensive but who cares the view is worth it

But I bet when they have everything in stock, and it’s not a gray, cloudy sunset..this place would be awesome! High up on a hill. Overlooking the bay, with a nice western view. Picnic table seats outside. Dock-bar vibe indoors, with live music sometimes. Decent...food. We just ordered some appetizers to split: calamari (A-..as expected), fried scallops (B+..great sauce, too thick for me), French fries (B). It was a joke that every drink we ordered was out. But the waitress was great, and took our kidding in stride.More

Parking attendant at Montauk Lighthouse recommended this spot. Rustic coastal original. W a cool clothing boutique w vintage high end hand bags and clothing... it was fun to browse. We had the fish tacos w vodka & lemon aid. We arrived just before 3. (Food...shuts down between 3 and dinner). Happy hour includes some beers, house wine and (bar spirits) drinks. I found the vodka and lemon aid a bit light on the wodka... but the bartender and the wonderful view of islands and states was worth a $60 lunch. Could not stay for the setting sun. But saw it lining up and it does present a glorious position for the end of day sun.More

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