“Best dinners in Montauk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

We were fortunate that we were staying within walking distance of the Surfside Inn or we may have missed such excellent food, service and ocean views. We had BBQ duck potato skin appetizer, petite fillet with gorgonzola mashed potatoes, flounder franchaise with mashed potatoes, cinnamin chicken with pumpkin sage grits, and flounder topped with shrimp with gorgonzola mashed potatoes. These were all chef's specials for the two evenings we ate there.

“Amazing food and great service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

I visited Montauk without a car and stayed next door at the Sunrise Guest House. I had dinner at the Surfside Inn all 4 nights I was in town. The food was amazing and the waiters took good care of me, even saving my favorite table to read while I ate and enjoy the ocean view.

“Bring your appetite and savor the delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

First time we ate in this restaurant but it won't be the last. Food and service were excellent ! We enjoyed lobster bisque, calamari, tuna, striped bass, all fresh out of the sea. Pleasant atmosphere, reasonable wine list. Not inexpensive but definitely worth it !

“Nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

We had lunch here as we were leaving town. We were one of three tables. Lovely place...well kept. They were preparing for a rehearsal dinner that night. Our server was very good. Our food was also. I had the crab cake...my husband a salad with chicken...son had the burger. All was good. View was lovely. Went for dinner a few years back....had lobster was good. Worth a visit. Owner very personable. Would like to stay at one of their rooms in the future.

“Excellent!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

we dined on the front porch of this wonderfully converted typical Montauk home. The view of the ocean was incredible and you melt with the sunset. The food was prepared to perfection, we had the filet mignon, nice timing between appetizer and main course - not rushed. White table cloths yet comfortable. Our waitress was very personable and provided helpful history and touring info for our visit :) She seemed to as happy for us to be there and genuine with her well wishes. Desert, key lime pie and deep fried cheese cake with vanilla ice cream, was delis with healthy serving; coffee was fresh. Highly recommend the Surfside Inn for their view and dining experience :)
