“Bird on the Roof - Breakfast and Shopping, what could be better?”
Reviewed July 15, 2009

The Bird is a real Montauk experience; family owned and operated for decades - personal attention - and you can find summer clothes and sweatshirts on the way out! They have the best pancakes in Montauk! anthony will make all kinds of specials and you don't have to wait around outside the restaurant like a vagrant! Yes, you will find kids and sometimes their parents aren't great at making them act like little humans, but, since it's family owned, Joanne or one of the family will step in and try to minimize the noise with crayons and such. I'd rather eat there than anywhere else for breakfast!

“Homey Breakfast Nook”
Reviewed August 29, 2007

Bird on the Roof is a cute, homey breakfast nook tucked away on a side street in Montauk. Its a family owned business and their personal touch is evident through out. a cute little boutique is connected to the restaurant and sells well-priced beachy, cute and ktichy fare - great for kids gifts and the must-havemontauk momento.

their basic menu is wholesome and simple (incredibly light and delicious pancakes) and they have their more inventive fare displayed daily on their blackboard (frittatas are the standout). prices are reasonable. yes, it does get crowded and sometimes noisy with kids but that also adds to the charm. its like having breakfast with 50 chatty relatives all at once!

i just love Bird and highly recommend it. if you prefer the standard diner atmosphere, dont come to Bird.

“was really relaxing at around 11:30”
Reviewed July 27, 2007

we loved it. We went to the beach early - then when the beach got crowded with families, we decided to take in a nice late breakfast. We walked right over to bird on a roof - andsat outside. I had the french toast - it was wonderful. My husband enjoyed his pancakes. We didnt have the kids with us - and there were no screaming kids when we were there. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. The store attached to it is great also. Lots of really different things - you will find good buys there too.
I would go there again! Loved it!

“Breakfast with screaming kids”
Reviewed August 21, 2006

Bird on the Roof must have been a great breakfast spot at one time, but that time is over. Average breakfast fare: eggs, bacon, home fries, pancakes. Place was loaded with families that didn't bother controlling their sceaming kids. Both "John's" on Main Street a bit better, both in food, ambiance, and service. But those 2 still pack you in like sardines. My choice for breakfast: Joni's.
