I was very disappointed that I paid $11 to climb the lighthouse but no one told me that I will not be able to go outside on the top.Whats the point of going up the stairs and not able to see view from the top??

Everyone of all ages should go to Montauk Lighthouse at least once. Great views, historic, wonderful grounds. Even if decide not to climb lighthouse (although should be done at least once), there is a museum, views, grounds. Been going for 40 years and still enjoy.

Defintely worth the trip from NYC across entire Long Island. Don´t mind the roads, they will never be a German Autobahn. But then again the atmosphere surrounded by the Atlantic. On clear days you can see Martha´s Vineyard..

A very pretty view. We have visited and climbed several lighthouses. This one is very doable! Beautiful!

I had the ranch burger and my wife had the lobster roll. Food was great and the view perfect. Eating outside and watching the boats was relaxing. It seems we always meet folks from out of state or the country, which just makes it better

The Lighthouse and its museum is a great way to see out over the cliffs as well as a great activity for a semi-rainy, windy day. The museum is small and easy to do in one hour. The climb to the lighthouse is not too...More

I did see several dogs leashed on the property. I do believe they can go in the lighthouse though
