We had dinner at Inlet Seafood Restaurant recently and really enjoyed the sushi. The restaurant is at the very end of Montauk harbor and is worth the trip just for the view.

Great oysters and claim chowder. The goat cheese salad was disappointing. What a fantastic view. Lunch was perfect except our waitress didn’t want to be working and had a caustic personality. It really ruined our first visit to the beautiful area.

Out to dinner with my bride, both looking for seafood. I had fresh PEI mussels which were the best I have ever had served to me! Wifey got sushi which was fresh. We both got fluke fish dishes which were yummy too! Server was attentive.

Highly recommend this restaurant. Fish is fresh and views are fantastic. Make sure you call for reservation on weekends as it does get busy but well worth the visit
