Dave has moved down to the marina and the views are amazing! The food is still works of art and never taste better. Some of the classics have remained on the menu but there are a few new additions that are a must try! This is a much more relaxed atmosphere and the staff is always accommodating! Dave may have...

After years of going to Dave's Grill and considering it one of our favorite LI restaurants, Dave's Gone Fishing was a real disappointment &, no, we won't be back. At an early dinner, half of almost every couple seated inside will be looking directly into the sun--very uncomfortable. The mussels Provençal, one of our favorite dishes: about half the portion...

Went for dinner with a reservation for 8:30 pm. Got to restaurant 7:30 and had a drink. When the hostess came over to us she said she had a table but we needed to share with 2 other people. I said no thanks, and said to the hostess is this HORN & HARDART? She laughed at me and said of... More

Beautiful setting on Eastlake Drive and comfortable, but very small, space. We have been frequenting Dave's for years and decided to check out the new Dave's Gone Fishing after the Labor Day exit. No problem getting seated, with the same smiles from the hostess. Did not recognize anyone else on the wait staff, although very pleasant. The menu was very... More

As mentioned, Dave's Grill is now Dave's Gone Fishing in new location on Eastlake Drive. Location is great, facing Montauk Yacht Club and nicely appointed. They are now featuring small plates, which means they have taken many of the old favorites (Ciopinno, tuna spread, etc.), charge you the same amount for about 1/3 of the original amount. Same attentive staff.

Now located in the Gone Fishing Marina on Eastlake Drive in Montauk, Dave's is a more casual approach than Dave's Grill. Overall the Marcleys have done a good job here. The dining space is fresh and casual; the bar area is intimate and there are several places to sit and relax w a drink before dinner. The dining room is... More

I miss the original Dave's. The new location is just not the same. Not a lot of choices and no chicken or steak for non seafood eaters. Overpriced and underwhelming. So sad because the original was so good.

Dave's Grill has relocated and has a new name but the service and the food is still excellent with a great view of the marina. New location is between Ricks Crabby Cowboy and Inlet Seafood.

I've been going to Daves Grill since it opened. Always look forward to going there when coming out to Montauk. The new location is quite nice. Great views sunset on the water. The food what little they gave you was spectacular. I just felt it was way overpriced. The striped bass which is very plentiful at this time was approximately... More
