We stopped in for dinner without reservations and we chose outdoor seating. The steamers were fantastic (rival to Gosman's for sure), the lobster roll was perfect (almost no mayo) and the grilled fish was awesome. They sell Smores kits for $10.00, which we used at...More

Was a great location for a beach wedding even though it was a rainy day looking out over the ocean from under tent or indoors was nice.

Friday night seemed to be a good night to try “Ricks.” There was no wait line at 7:30 pm and outside seating is spacious. It’s great for kids; a guitar player; dance floor; string lighting; grilling “so-mores “ and planes from the local Montauk airport...More

My family and I visit Rick's every year because my grandfather owned the restaurant in this spot in the 70's - Rick has done a fabulous job of making this a family friendly and delicious place to visit while in MTK!!!

Off the main strip in Montauk by the harbor...no too crazy but still busy. Good service- waitstaff hustle hard here! Nautical atmosphere and pretty breezy so bring a jacket! Great sunsets too if weather cooperates. $30 lobster roll- pretty pricy but in Montauk it’s to...More
