Montauk Dinner - Special Occasion during Restaurant Week

My husband and I are traveling to the Montauk Yacht Club for our first anniversary. We are looking for nice dining experience, where we can enjoy good drinks, good service and excellent food in a fun atmosphere. Although we are not trendy by any means, we aren't looking for a fish shack experience; something more formal. Our dining preferences include white fish, lobster, shellfish and sushi.

On another note, we know it is restaurant week in the Hamptons so any preferences of those choices are welcome.

Lastly, we hear that Robbin Haas has taken over the restaurant located in our hotel. Any word on the menu and/or reviews of the restaurant.

  1. The Inlet in Montauk would suit you fine
    Westlake is equally good with the fish and sushi, although sort of a bar/fish shack/marina hangout atmosphere. Not sure when they're opening though, Inlet is open now.

      Thank you for the feedback on Inlet. What is the dress code? Also, I heard good things about Red Brasserie and East by Northeast. Any comments.

        I love North by Northeast, but since you didn't say exactly when you were coming out (there are a couple of Rest Weeks in the Hamptons), I didn't mention several places that won't open for another month or two. I don't think anywhere in Montauk has a "dress code", you could probably go in your bathing suit if you wanted, no matter how upscale the menu.

          We will be in town on March 26th. Is Surf Lodge and Dan's closed? What about the lobster shacks?

            Lobster Roll and Clam Shack usually open in April sometime, weather permitting. Surf Lodge I bet around Memorial Day. Who is Dan's, it's drawing a blank.
