The view is amazing. Sunsets are spectacular. The food is OK. I had the Seafood fra diavalo. The sauce was lacking in flavor but the clams and mussels were fresh. My wife had the scallops and she said they were very good. Tables around us had ordered the sushi and it looked good. We will try that next time.

They have the best tacos! Also the grandsons enjoy this restaurant which has A children's menu. Many MTK restaurants don't cater to children but this one does. Ismail matter but the warm small rolls are our fave. All in all a gr8 experience! We always go to The Inlet!

This was our first time to Inlet Seafood. They do not take reservations so we decided to go a little early. There are plenty of places to have a drink whether it be on the comfortable downstairs couches..or outside watching the boats go by or on the upstairs deck if you have to wait. Great staff from the hostesses to... More

Yes, the sunset view is perfect but it's free you can walk along the beach and enjoy it. The clam soup is the best , roasted half duck is good too. But the scallop and mussel.. Sorry , have to be a one star. After all, $165 for 3 adult and a kid for such a meal is a little... More

This is our must visit restaurant. It never disappoints. The fish is always so fresh and delicious. Same goes for the sushi...Your view is Montauk harbor,....you can watch the fishing boats sail into and out while you sip your cocktails or while dining. If you're there late enough, a great sunset is there for your pleasure. Plus, the staff is... More

Inlet Seafood is a favorite. Best sushi in MONTAUK along with a great sunset view. Service is always good. Always busy in the summer but Mary the manager runs a tight ship and all flows well. Very good seafood along with the sushi.

Food was very good, had mussels and sushi rolls for apps. Several of us had broiled lobster which was delicious and the other entree's were well received. Service was good, our waitress seemed experienced and was efficient. A real bonus is the sunset, which was awesome and watched by all. It is a mini event. The only down side was... More

Indoor and Outdoor dining available. Located on East Lake Drive which is arguably the best vantage point for viewing sunsets. Food is terrific. This last visit we had mussels in white wine sauce (not gritty at all), sushi and sashimi and oysters. All were perfect. Warning...there is an Inlet Cafe on the other side of the lake at Gossman's dock.... More

I raved about the fish tacos and had planned on ordering them my first time back. I stopped short of ordering when I saw a fish taco order being served to a nearby table. Besides the deliciously seasoned fish they used to fry the corn taco shells. The taco shells now being used looks like Ortega brand or similar. How... More
