Inlet is a little off the beaten path from other parts of MTK which makes it that much more authentic when you get there and see the beautiful views. Along the way you pass Lake Montauk where you can see locals catching oysters. The seafood...More

There have been multiple times I have dined at Inlet Seafood and this time was no different. The food was fresh and the service was great and attentive. They have an extensive menu plus they always have additional specials, which makes it hard to choose....More

We had two dinners recently at Inlet Seafood Restaurant. They couldn't have been better: fabulous shrimp cocktails, steamed lobsters, sushi and a wonderful view. Both our servers were relaxed, pleasant and helpful. We will go back for sure!

It just does not get better than this! Don't know how the Inlet is not the number one Seafood restaurant in Montauk. This is a lovely place for lunch. Usually less crowded then, especially on weekdays. The lunch specials are very good, and reasonably priced....More
