“Self serve and good lobster!”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

For a rustic meal where you serve yourself and sit on the docks and relax with good company, Duryea is THE place for seafood lovers. They have a varied menu of shellfish, clam chowder, and fresh caught fish. Remember to bring your own alcohol!

“A Rustic Lobster Shack”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

You don't have to visit Maine to experience an old-school Lobster Shack. Duryea's fits that bill to a tee, and if you are a Lobster Lover, you'll be in paradise.

The menu focuses on Lobster and other local seafood, and the outdoor deck features beautiful views of the local bays.
The setting is rustic, and perfect for chilling out, and enjoying your company, and the Lobster.

They also feature a seafood market that is open year round, and in the off-season they spotlight a Lobsters Lover special to go, that is worth the drive to Monatuk.

“Laid-back Montauk at Hampton Prices”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Great spot on the water to kick-back and eat good food. A bit pricey, but you can bring your own beer/wine and the food is delicious. Always crowded but always a good meal. The help is summer help from eastern europe/soviet union so there's a bit of "attitude" to the place. Although we got there just before they closed and they all left before we were finished and just asked us to throw our stuff away when we left and make sure the tops are on the garbage cans. Always reminds me of a scene from "The Russians are coming". Ha!

The people who wrote good reviews are clearly on the take--as was the guy at our hotel who recommended this spot. A losbster dinner was approximately $35--three times more than you would pay anywhere else in the area. In addition, the lobster was dry, tasteless and clearly over cooked. The lobster roll--cheaper than a dinner by a very narrow margin--was mostly mayonnaise. Dinner for two adults and a child was almost $100. Way too much money for a place that where you have to serve yourself on paper plates. Don't get taken in by the recommendations like we did.

“If you love lobster, you'd better come here”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

Duryea's Lobster Deck is a must stop for anyone who loves lobster. However, if you're expecting to eat your lobster in a fancy restaurant setting, you're going to be disappointed. At Duryea's, you're going to eat outside with plastic chairs, tables, and utensils. However, whether you go with the whole lobster, the lobster roll, or the lobster soup or clam chowder, your taste buds are going to thank you. I've never had a bad meal in the half dozen times I've been here. I even showed up once as they were closing hoping to make a large order, and they accommodated me. Now that is service! Once thing to take note here....its cash only.
