Shagwong has been there forever.
Its a good local pub with average food and, not crazy expensive.
Locals hang out there too.

Good for families, has daily specials but - it can be pretty loud in there.
Good for a burger / fries.
Very casual attire is fine.

Never a bad call to venture into the Shag for a few cocktails and a good burger. The fried calamari is pretty good also. There isn't a whole heck of a lot to choose from in Montauk. So this place is safe. Clean and pretty tasty food all around.

We dined at a high table on the bar side because we were ordering from the bar menu. It was early evening mid week in June, not crowded. Big flat screen tv and locals trickling in and out of the bar. It was interesting watching the local scene. We ordered charcoal grilled cheeseburgers with fried onions and french fries, OMG! Everything was excellent.........with every bite, we uttered "mmmmm". If french fries aren't really good, I leave them. There wasn't a crumb left on our plates!

Shagwong has been here forever. Right in town. Always a great meal and cold drinks. They have a pretty good staff and have never had a bad meal. Get the Mako special if they have it.

It had been a few years since our last meal at this dive. Keep in mind, no one comes here expecting fine dining. It's kinda seedy, and you can see that right off. But seedy Shag has always had its quirky charms, like the steady stream of well pickled regulars at the bar, all the funky old what nots hanging on the walls, and the whole old school Montauk vibe that's getting rarer out there every season. That, plus AC that mostly worked, and food that was mostly edible, made a visit here mostly enjoyable. Not so this time. About the only positives I can report are that the bottle of Corona was cold and that the pickled people watching was as full of characters as always. But I won't be back. When a dive sinks this low, its over.
