Nice view and that is the only thing nice about this place. The food is tasteless and overpriced. The service is reluctant. Indoor seating is unappealing; outdoor seating is without any shades. This place needs a complete overhaul to be ranked as a restaurant. How...More

Had lunch at the Inlet a few days back. The seafood chowder was a great soup to starts things off. Next up was the grilled flounder sandwich. Simply one of the best seafood sandwiches I ever ate. Must go to place in montauk.

This restaurant is right across the channel from Gosman's Dock. The service is good. They did sell clams that were too small to be selling but they didn't charge us for our inconvenience. The food is absolutely amazing!!!!!
