We ended up here recently (4/08) because there weren't many places open. I guess it was better than nothing, but not much! A loud group of workers came in cursing and carrying on--no comment was made to them about their behavior or that others there for lunch might not be interested in whether or not they got laid the night before--but my mom got a call on her cellphone & practically got thrown out of the place (she's 72). "NO CELL PHONES" the owner yelled. So loud obnoxious talking is okay, talking quietly on a cellphone isnt'? That's a great business plan, dude! Then when the vegetable quiche came (not much else looked appetizing on their daily specials list), it was mostly egg, hardly any veggies. And teeny portions. The pan it was made in couldn't have been more than 6" in diameter.

If you have a choice, go elsewhere! Like the new bakery in town near the bookstore!

This is my favorite place in Montauk. The food is always good. Nothing fancy, but it is always done right. I have never had a bad meal at this place. Get the tuna melt, you can not go wrong. If you want to get a real slice of Montauk go in the afternoon during the week and just sit back and watch. The owner is not cool about kids though so watch the little ones if you have them in tow.

I have visited Montauk regularly for 25 years. Each trip always includes multiple stops at The Dock! Their Tuna Melt -- a healthy sized grilled tuna steak served on an english muffin with lettuce, tomato and tartar sauce, is something I look forward to every time. Meals are reasonably priced (for Montauk) and outstanding. The steamed mussels are a favorite. Their little neck clams on the half shell are always fresh and tender. Their menu hasn't changed in years and doesn't need to. The memorabilia displayed throughout the bar and restaurant is always intriguing, no matter how many times I've seen it.

Between the great food and the irreverent atmosphere, the Dock is always an outstanding experience.
