We sometimes take a drive just to have lunch here. The food is great but if you go for dinner make sure you go early they fill up fast after 5 or 6. Haven't had anything we didn't like here! Enjoy!!

This fresh off the boat Montauk seafood mainstay did not disappoint. The food was very good, prices fair and sunset outstanding! It is family/child friendly. Make a reservation or expect a very long wait for dinner.

Inlet is off the beaten trail in Montauk. Its easy to find though. Large restaurant with fantastic views. Go for sunset but you may have time it right because there could be a wait. As for the food, it was delectable! The apps were scrumptious....More

Hi Jonnygym, it's first come first serve basis, there are a couple of slips, marked "restaurant." We are on the east side of the Inlet, first building on the left.
We are going on a fishing charter and would like to know if you will cook our catch for us?
