The Harvest
A "family-style" place with a great location (on fort pond), and great atmosphere. When I say family style, I mean the portion size. When they tell you it's big portions...believe them!!

West Cove
West Lake Drive
(NOTE: West Cove is no longer :(. There is a new restaurant opening in its place. If you go there...please let me know how the food and atmosphere is. Thanks!)
Local fisherman's hangout during the day with a great seasonal crowd at night. You'll hear some great fishing stories if you hang around west cove long enough.
Tell Orla, the owner, Capt. Kevin says to get a website!

Nick's on the Beach
South Emerson (in town)
Ok, Nick's isn't up in the harbor area, but it's worth the extra drive (or taxi) into town. Views of the Ocean are AMAZING upstairs and the food is top notch! Oh, and did I mention the outside bar puts you right smack on a tropical island. Nick and Claire are amazing hosts! Trust me, I had my wedding reception there.
(631) 668-4800 (april - november)
On a sad note, Nick Deane passed away recently 8/08. He will be greatly missed, but his legend will live on.

Gosman's TOPSIDE Restaurant
West Lake Drive
Be careful, I said the TOPSIDE restaurant. They have three over there. Well, what can you say about topside, but what a view! The views of the boats entering the harbor are breathtaking, even for a salty dog like myself. It's a little pricey, but well worth it for the atmosphere.

closes, relatively early

Sail Inn
Westlake Drive
A real locals hangout, but worth stopping in and saying hello. Many of the Captains and Mates from the charter boats hang around the Sail Inn after they are finished with their day. Montauk locals are a jolly, friendly bunch. Drinks and food are cheap, but don't expect fillet mignon on the menu or even attempt to order any fancy drinks.
631-668-2800 (open year round)

Lenny's on the Dock
West Lake Drive
Lenny's is a big hanout for the walk-by charter guys. This is the area where all the tourists get their charters. Lenny runs a great place with good food and you can watch the boats unload their catch while you eat.
