    Montauk has been a restaurant where we have dined before. The portions are large and the food is good. So, its a great family spot if you have hungry teenagers that have been skiing all day.

    We try to eat here every year when we are in Vail. The seafood is always fresh and delicious. We started some of the specialty cocktails, the bee hive and the mellow gold, which were very good. We shared an order of mussels to start. We dined on the ahi tuna, seafood linguini, and grilled shrimp. We finished the meal with an ice cream pie called, sand pie which was great. The food and service was all very good.

    The fish everyone in group ordered was great but the sides were very bland potatoes, rice, cold slaw type dish, vegetables. It felt and tasted like sides were just kept in large warming dish and scooped on each plate through a cafeteria line. Presentation of food was not that appealing for the price paid.

    We go to montauk every time we are in vail. The chef accommodates all special orders deliciously. This time for starters we ordered calamari, a traditional wedge salad and for entrees, the ahi tuna and the seafood linguini in lobster/white wine broth. The pasta was chocked full of seafood. All very good. And enough for leftovers but too full for dessert! A neighboring table noted our items and ordered the same things. They were also delighted! I saw items on other neighboring tables that I'm eager to try next time. The mussels looked great and we heard the oysters were outstanding. There are so many good choices, it's hard to get to them all!

    While the food was very good, the service was lacking. The kitchen apparently forgot about our food as did our server, and all he could say was that they were sorry they were backed up (even though diners all around us were getting served). He had no idea about what were appropriate portions as well.

    I do this very infrequently, but felt compelled to write this review because dinner at Montauk Seafood Grill was one of the best dinning experiences that I've had in years! The service was exceptional from the greeting by the hostess right to the chef coming out to see how our dinner was. Our waiter was attentive, knowledgable, and made great recommendations! The food was excellent. When in Vail this restaurant is a must!!!

    Dined on 12/25/2013
    Montauk is always a treat, and this time was exceptionally so. The service was fantastic (Ron was our server), the drinks were delicious (Bee Hives all around, a new addition to the menu). Oysters were fresh and delicious. Our family of five was split between the ahi and toro dish as to which was more spectacular - we all tried to be the last to savor that final bite. Coming to the restaurant is a treat, but for those of us spending the holiday away from home, this meal could not have been more special. Thank you to Montauk for such a great experience!

    I had the Mahi with Parm Risotto, which was exceptional. My husband had the mussels, which were good but not great. He said he had hoped they would have had a garlic note in the sauce and would have come with a grilled, buttered bread. The blue wedge was also very good, with a WONDERFUL dressing!

    We had ordered vodka martinis. The wait staff did not know about their new vodka offered called Titos. We received the drinks and they were very weak and the vodka hardly could be tasted. We did tell the waiter, who didn't seem too concerned. Otherwise the dinners were very good.

    The food was excellent. There were four of us and we were celebrating a birthday. The waiter was very helpful in recommending items from the menu. I had a salmon dish and it was cooked to perfection. The other meals were also cooked to perfection. The presentation of the dishes was good. Since this was off season, the prices were reasonable. In season, the prices would be much higher. All in all, the experience was wonderful.

    They seem to do the same thing for years and its good. We always start with the oysters and than pick from the grill menu. This time I opted for the Alaskan crusted halibut and it was very good. My wife had the walleye and liked it. . For the location it's priced moderately. Service is always good.

    I have been going to Montauk once a year for the last 10 years. This is a restaurant that I always recommend to all my friends and anyone who asks who has the best sea food. They are my favorite restaurant. I have never been disappointed with the food or the service. They are excellent with large groups as well. They have served my Credit Union group of 25-45 many times with the same excellent service & food.

Peter, the person who took care of us was excellent and made great recommendations. I had Dunginus Crab that was outstanding. It was a relaxing and wonderful evening. I strongly suggest you do yourself a favor a try this restaurant. I hope your experience will be as enjoyable as ours was.

    Dined on 9/1/2013
    Montauk almost never disappoints. A wide selection of seafood entrees, well prepared. A good selection of oysters and great gazpacho. This night, however, they were off their game. Food was good, but the normal easy going ambiance was lost. In fact, the environment was close to awful. Some clown behind us took more than half a dozen flash pictures with his smartphone that kept disrupting the place, another table featured a women talking at full volume to her companion and another featured a guy screaming into his phone. The room was also hot and stank of stale seafood. I know a restaurant has limited control over it's clientele, but Montauk needs to maintain some ground rules if they want us to return. Too expensive to put up with this.

    Okay, dinner was really good, too, but dessert was amazing! We all but two of them & they were all incredibly good, but the best two were the Sand Pie, an ice cream heaven, & the Espresso Creme Brulee! The consistency of the Creme Brulee was the BEST I've ever had, & only the second place with it even along the correct consistency & not the over hardened pudding texture most places make. In any flavor, this creme brulee would be worth the trip!

    This restaurant was excellent. A very nice seafood selection that they claim is flown in daily. They had fresh Florida grouper - and if I hadn't just returned from a trip to Florida I would have selected this for dinner, Chilean Sea Bass, snapper, and halibut among others. The calimari was nice and light. The wedge salad was probably the best I've ever had. Prices were Vail-like although the Chilean Sea Bass at $49 seemed crazy. We had the herb-crusted Alaskan halibut and it was fantastic. Will definitely eat her again and again. If you like seafood, don't miss dining here while in Vail.

    We ate inside, because it was a cold evening. The tables are too close together for quiet conversation. Noisy patrons. Service was very good; knowledgable waitress. Oysters were excellent, as was the Gazpacho, probably in the top 5 of all recipes we have ever tasted. The Manhattan clam chowder is outstanding!! Very few restaurants serve this. Excellent flavor!! The ladies chose the Scottish salmon (Organic?, probably pen raised Atlantic salmon, which had suprisingly very good flavor and texture. The Ahi tuna seared with soy, accompanied with a tasty shrimp/vegetable stir fry was very good. The rice cake added nothing.. The wine list was so-so. The Sangria was surprisingly good. The ladies enjoyed two of the fruit cocktails.

We love it, the food is always great,service great and sometimes we stumble into the bar on the way back to our room. We always stay at Lions Square Lodge so it's on our way back. It's a GEM and sometimes we even go twice. Deb Karsh Denver, CO
