If you want to enjoy the freshest seafood possible, you need to check out Inlet Seafood restaurant in beautiful Montauk, L.I.! The six commercial fisherman that opened Inlet Seafood Restaurant is all about fresh-off-boat seafood every day!! Inlet Seafood restaurant opened its doors in the summer of 2006 as an offshoot of Montauk Inlet Seafood, the largest packer/shipper of fresh seafood in New York State!!
These guys pride themselves on providing their customers with the freshest seafood possible, almost always locally-landed by one of their own boats. You just can’t beat that…and it’s something I love to support.
Also, their location on the East side of Montauk Harbor Inlet offers some amazing sunset and water views that really complete the experience at Inlet. I absolutely love eating and drinking by the water, don’t you? It’s just such an awesome way to spend some time and really enjoy what we have here on Long Island!

Let’s take a look and see what this fantastic spot has to offer!
Inlet Seafood Restaurant
Inlet Seafood restaurant is really awesome because it’s an amazing restaurant on the water to enjoy. It’s also really unique in that it’s owned and operated by professional fisherman. These guys not only know about great seafood, they live it! They catch it and bring it home to the local docks. Instead of shipping it all to other places to enjoy, they keep it and prepare it themselves for their lucky customers to enjoy. I mean…it’s pretty awesome, right?
This place is all about the fish and seafood, baby. Bring your sea legs, people! Dig into local clams and oysters on the half-shell or a bowl of their fresh clam chowder of the day. Cajun seasoned tacos, 1.5 pound Montauk lobster, and a lobster roll can’t be beat either! They even create some delicious pastas, like lobster ravioli, spicy seafood fra diavolo, and linguine with clam sauce!
As you could imagine, the sushi here is super fresh! Much of what you will enjoy was swimming around local waters the day before! The options are huge for sushi, sashimi, and rolls. Tuna tartar, Nori rolls, and blue claw crab California rolls are great! There are a number of creative rolls, including a spicy lobster roll. The largest offering is the sashimi platter, consisting of 21 pieces of Chef’s Choice assorted sashimi.
Of course Inlet Seafood restaurant offers a wide menu selection of fish and shellfish, for both lunch and dinner. That’s a given, but even the non-seafood dishes are pretty awesome too! You land lovers can tuck into some roasted chicken, Long Island Duck, steaks, and cheeseburgers. How about General Tsao’s cauliflower or even an awesome warm goat cheese ball coated in sunflower seeds!
Inlet Seafood restaurant is loaded (pun sort of intended) with great drinks, too! They offer a full-service bar and wine list, draft and bottled beer, as well as hand-crafted specialty drinks and sake, too.

Getting to Inlet Seafood Montauk
Montauk is approximately two-and-a-half (or way more) hours by car from New York City (depending on traffic), and they can also be accessed by the Montauk branch on the Long Island Rail Road or the iconic Hamptons Jitney bus. The Hampton Ambassador or the Hampton Luxury Liner, are more upscale options, with more comfortable seats and better amenities.
It can be a trip to get to Montauk and this wonderful Inlet Seafood Montauk restaurant, but I think once you get there and experience it all…you’ll think it was worth the trip!
