    We really enjoyed our dinner here at the Gulf Coast Kitchen. We stayed on site and so we naturally had to try dinner again. My son had the pork ossobuco, which he pronounced delicious, and I have the mussels special that was an appetizer, as my entrée. Both were very, very good. Well-balanced flavors. My son also ordered the clam chowder and he said it was terrific. We also scarfed down all the bread in the breadbasket which came out all hot and buttery. I would definitely recommend this spot for the food, as well as for the ambience.

    We went here on the recommendation of a Hamptons article that listed this place in the Top 10 places to eat in Montauk. We were a little wary of heading out to a 'club' let alone a 'yacht club' but trusted the article (as other places listed were indeed yummy). The main downside was the ambience - it felt like we had traveled back in time 30 years to the 'Love Boat'. Another in our party likened it to 'being at a wedding'. The food itself was ok, even good, but not a fun or interesting place to eat. Needs to modernize! Won't go back - so many other more interesting places to eat.

    Un ristorante nella più bella località degli Hamptons (Montauk), nel posto più bello (lo Yackt Club) meriterebbe una cucina vera e uno chef degno ci questo nome. Un servizio gentilissimo ed un locale molto bello presentano invece piatti sciatti, banali, mediocri, e di gusto terribile. Portate senza senso, dai sapori a volte imbarazzanti. Un vero disastro. E la quantità "da camionisti", non riscatta certo una pessima qualità. Ripartire da zero è il minimo.

    The reservation was not honored. They tried to seat me in the banquet room and give us a table for 8 for the 4 of us. After a horrible start to the night and insisting on a table in the dinning room, the main courses were good. The appetizers were not good. They were busy and service was lacking. It was a very good and exciting atmosphere. I hate to start with an argument. They even called me to confirm I was going to be there and I was there on time. I like the place, but it needs improvement.

    I looked forward to dining at the Montauck Yacht Club with my 3 adult children but was disappointed by the lack of creativity in the menu. We have eaten at many other Montauck restaurants and this one seemed dated and tired. I ended up with a soup and salad because I could not find anything that I really wanted to try on the menu. The view was lovely and we got some great pictures of the harbor. I would not go again.

    One reason of significance was that the waiter & bartender did not ask prior to using Grey Goose for a cocktail; hence I was not presented choice re: possible brands. Also Service was fine but not top knotch as the table was not properly cleaned after dinner & before dessert. Finally, I had listed the special occasion (birthday) on my reservation but neither hostess nor waiter followed up. Still, we would come again.

    Every year we take a chance to eat at this place where the beginning of the season produces a good result and then it goes downhill as the summer progresses. This year was pretty much the same with the exception of hordes of kids running through the restaurant while absent minded parent were enjoying themselves elsewhere. The sea bass I had was decent and tasty, but the dinner portion was smaller than most appetizers so we left hungry.

    Food was good, though surf and turf portion small and expensive. Ambiance was fine. Not a scene in the restaurant, thankfully, but a separate bar area. Restaurant nextdoor also good, more casual pizza/italian place, also with a separate bar. Both kid-friendly. Great location at the marina.

    I went here with my wife and stayed at the hotel. It was on the off seasonso not many places were open so we decided to eat here cause it was in our hotel. We were pleasantly surprised how greAt the food was and the service was excellent as well. The prices were also very reasonably. My wife got the half lobster stuffed with crab. It was excellent. I got the New York strip steak. It was cooked perfectly. I would def recommend this place. We also had breakfast there the next day it was so good and breakfast w We will def be back. Very enjoyable

    not worth the money for the service and feel received. Snow probably limited the staff that affected the staff size and the lobster that was 35.00 was tougher than shoe leather. I have never tipped less than 18% but this time I felt the waiter did not earn his job. We saw him to get our order and bring bread then the bill. The others working in the restaurant showed us more attention and service and they were not being tipped.

    My 11 year old and I decided to go to Montauk for an impromptu time away and we stayed at the Montauk Yacht Club. The Gulf Coast Kitchen was a lovely spot! Despite a big wedding reception going on, the food came out perfectly on time and was delicious. The kitchen sent out an amuse bouche of tuna, that was outstanding! I had mussels that were steamed, which were flavorful and garlicky. My son had the lobster carbonara, and he was in heaven. A t the end of the meal, after a decadent crème brulee, the chef sent out chocolate-covered strawberries, which was a wonderful little touch. It made me feel pampered. The waitstaff was friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend Gulf Coast Kitchen!

    It was no mistake that Michael Jackson's "Thriller" was blaring over the speakers on our recent dinner at Gulf Coast kitchen - a paradox of a restaurant on the Montauk bay. Never have I seen such a beautiful space wasted away by complete mismanagement and indifference. From the inconsistent service to the overpriced food to the mind boggling music selection, the only enjoyment one can possibly find here is in the combined hilarity of it all. No bartenders at the bar. Empty on a Saturday night in mid summer. Something is terribly off here, and it's only going to get worse if someone finally pays attention and cleans house.

    We love the chef! (Full disclosure: we got married at MYC and so are slightly biased. Regardless, in our foodie opinion, the chef is truly talented!) Service can be improved and seems to vary depending on whether or not a wedding reception is also on site. Gulf Coast is top notch and much more preferable over the now overhyped hipness of many of the newer/trendier restaurants in Montauk.

    I ordered the Kobe beef burger - nothing spectacular - tasted like a regular hamburger . My husband ordered the pork chop special - said it was good but would not order again . Our friend ordered the Petit fillet mignon -he seemed to enjoy it . Creme brulee dessert was creamy and delicious ! Bread pudding was a little too sweet . Service was great - we were there on a Sunday night in September so we pretty much had the restaurant to ourselves . Beautiful view of the water and boats . The piped-in music could've been a little lower in volume and possibly the music selection itself could've been a little more mellow considering the atmosphere . I would go back .
