Description: "This is where Summer begins." The Lobster Roll Restaurant, also known as "Lunch", is a nostalgic beach shack serving lunch and dinner to locals and guests from around the globe. Our critically acclaimed family restaurant serves beach-side favorites like lobster rolls, chowders, steamers, fresh seafood, chicken, burgers, sandwiches, steak and homemade pies. We also feature a full-bar, gluten-free menu, and an extensive children's menu. Our famous lobster salad is made with 100% pure cold water lobster meat, using the same recipe we created almost 50 years ago! Our lobster salad contains no imitation seafood products, no fillers, no preservatives, and no artificial flavorings. It's all about quality! We have indoor and outdoor seating amidst sand dunes, gardens of summer flowers, umbrellas, beach balls, picnic tables, and plenty of smiling faces! By popular demand, our entire menu is available for take-out. We can also cater to you!

We were told to have the Lobster Roll and the fried puffer fish. Neither disappointed. Since we had both, we did each did the lobster slider - like everyone has said, tons of lobster meat, not too much mayo - fantastic. The puffer fish are light and fresh and delicious. They also make some good cocktails. It was so good, we went back and had the hot lobster roll - I think the cold is better - my husband had the fried fish, shrimp and clam platter, which was good as well - if you are into fried stuff.

So happy our Puffers and Lobster Rolls lived up to expectations, and that they made you want to come back again for more. That might be the ultimate compliment right there! I'm not sure how often you folks visit Montauk, but we'd love to welcome you back for more the next time you're in town. Thanks so much for taking the time to spread the good word about us here on TripAdvisor -- we really appreciate it!

From our family to yours,
Andrea

Great to go on a cloudy, drizzling day- not too crowded but as the sun broke through, so did the crowds. Food was fresh and delicious. Fried calamari, hot and cold lobster roll sandwiches - even the veggie burger were terrific. Complimented by delicious sweet potato fries and chowder.
Pricey but not offensive, though (something silly) - they could just refill the iced tea rather than charge for another small cup of the drink. Server was sweet and concerned our meal was right.
Definitely worth the trip out to these far east point. Oh, other funky thing - their credit card receipts do not have space for tips - they almost demand that they are in cash.

So happy you thought our food was worth the trip and that from the calamari to the chowder, you loved your meal. I appreciate you letting others know that our receipts don't have much space to leave a tip, and I appreciate the suggestion about our refill policy -- it's something we can look into. That said, it sounds like you think we've got a good thing going overall, and that you were pleased with your visit on the whole. I'm thrilled and would love to welcome you back for more the next time you're in town!

I am not a big fan of the lobster roll however this one is AWESOME! It is a little pricey but everything is in Montauk. Plus the clam chowder New England style was great as well.

Slow service, lots of fried foods & high prices on a no view location make this a popular tourist trap.

We've been proudly serving out-of-towners and locals alike since 1965, and we think it's because we've got great food and friendly service. If that's not what you felt you got when you came in, I apologize, Connie. That said, we definitely don't consider ourselves a tourist trap, and I'd love the chance to prove to you just why we're such a popular local establishment the next time you're in the area.
