Still has the local tavern flavor, live music after 9, but now has a small and diversified menu, very delicious. Tried many different items on menus and all great from fresh fish to good steaks. Service even on a busy night concerned and professional. New chef really hit it out of the ballpark. I will return!!

Had the salmon, it was severely undercooked, I ate around the sides (I don't give food back), wifey had a salad, which was not awe inspiring. Service was really fast, maybe that was the problem, that they were in a rush to give us our food. People were nice, and the bar seemed like it was hopping for a November... More

The place has been updated. Gone are the smoke stained walls and ceilings. Good drinking bar. Nice big dining area. It can get crowded on the week ends.

20 years ago, my wife brought me here for a surprise birthday dinner and overnight stay at a local motel. It was wonderful because the food was spectacular and the prices were reasonable. It was a place frequented by fisherman and other locals who knew where to go for drinks and food. It changed a lot. It changed hands several... More

Bar restaurant. Was ok. Burgers and fries and fish of the day were good. The salads are pretty big. Good service. Place fills up pretty fast so try to be there before 730pm.

When we walked in there was this couple who was waiting to be seated, looking around for help. The waiter came over and asked us how many and we pointed to them as they were there first. I asked what kind of beer he had on tap and he replied 12 beers, so tell me what you like. Wrong answer... More

Friendly atmosphere. First night I had the Seared Salmon. It was great. At have been there a long time ago, but I wasn't impressed. This time I went because the people at front desk at Surfclub recommended it. They said that it has new owners, and a new chef. Just passing by the smell of the food is delicious. Second... More

Visited this famous Montauk restaurant with my family of 5 and another family. Great seafood! Everything was fresh and delicious. The clam chowder is not to be missed and the kids loved the fried macaroni balls. They specialize in traditional American fare and do not dissapoint!
