A word from South Edison
South Edison is one of Montauk's top tables. Offering classic Montauk beach fare with a fresh and creative twist, South Edison is "the model of a summery eatery in a beachy town," says Peter Gianotti of Newsday. Chef Todd Mitgang, of Manhattan's three-star Cascabel Taqueria and formerly of Crave Ceviche Bar, offers a seafood centric menu with inventive flavors. A mere two blocks from the ocean, South Edison offers a menu changing almost daily to highlight the fresh local seafood, most of it sourced from the fishing docks only a mile away. Everything at South Edison from the colors and the furniture to the décor and lighting says Hamptons beach house. Look for creative cocktails such as dirty sandbox, patio pounder and the Montauk mojito at the bar as well as local brews from Six Point Brewery at the bar or in Growlers to go. Whether it's an après beach cocktail and a snack or a candlelit dinner for two, South Edison is a perfect summer spot.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The food is always excellent at South Edison, the drinks--amazing. I'd have to say, though, the fried clams leave a little something to be desired but the clam bake and seared tuna were wonderful."

  • "My first time back this season & it wowed. Loved the short rib. All dishes have an incredible combination of flavors."

  • "We were excited to try South Edison. The menu seems exciting, refreshing and exotic. Diner beware. The only small plate that was edible, were the fried oysters. The carrot/ clam soup was merely carrot broth and cream. The clams must have jumped ship before being served. The Sashimi had a smell so horible it was not edible. The waitress had no opinion on the food what so ever. She offered no insight,no condolences when she took an entire plate of un eaten food away. Pistachio ice cream was really vanilla. No care, concern nor attention paid to the table. The only thing that had real taste was the Taffy but that free salt water taffy came with an expensive price tag, and an evening of just sheer disspointment."

  • "My husband and I love it here so much. Every bite you take has nuances that are surprising and perfect. This is our go-to place; it never disappoints."

  • "Nice decor but the food is about average, we shared couple of appetizers, nothing was really special."

  • "We visit Montauk annually and are always looking for new restaurants to try. South Edison was recommended to me by the staff at a high-end restaurant in Sag Harbor, where I stopped for lunch, on my way into town. And, I have to say, my girlfriends and I were not disappointed. The menu was creative but balanced, offering options for all kinds of palates. The only "mistake" I made was in ordering all items that were very lemony & peppery, including the pepper basil gimlet (which was very good), so everything kind of blended together for me. I did try some of my friend's dishes, and think that all of the food was well-prepared. I would definitely recommend this restaurant, and I expect to return."

  • "If it wasn't for the fact that Dave's Grill has such a degrading reservation policy we never would have tried South Edison. We were so glad we did. Atmosphere was relaxed and hip. Menu made it hard to pick just one dish! Service was responsive. What a great meal!"

  • "My friends and I arrived late after Friday night traffic. They easily changed our reservation, and sat us right away even though place was bustling. Food was very good. My only complaint was the timing between apps and main course - we weren't finished with appetizers before the main course came out, and the waitress was a but flighty, but well-intentioned. Overall we were happy we ate there and would definitely go back next time we're out in Montauk."

  • "great food, attentive service, but the noise level can detract from the overall experience. Very attractive décor. I'd go back."

  • "Not much to choose from. No steak ot pasta. Didnt like wine by the glass selection. Didnt like the apps. "

  • "We've been coming here since they opened three years ago. The first year impressed us with their original and unique menu. Last season we ate there about 3-4 times, and each time there seemed to be a disappointment of one kind or another, either with the quality of the food or the service or the noise level. So we tried them again Saturday evening May 10. The food was again original and excellent. The corn/crab chowder was unique and very tastee; the octopus tacos (a holdover from last year) were as good as they've ever been. We ordered the three lobster roll sliders ($27) and the Scottish salmon as entrees and were not disappointed at all. That said, this is really pre-season. The real test will come during the season. Here's hoping…"

  • "I visited South Edison a few times this summer and consistently had the same experience. The food is awesome, the waitstaff is so-so, and with a reservation sometime you had to wait, which isn't the end of the world because they have one of the best bartenders in town."

  • "Enjoyed South Edison when it first opened. They still struggle a bit with the Saturday night crowd (ran of wine glasses?) but are professional. Food is consistently inventive and very good but would like an addition or two to the menu over the course of the summer."

  • "Our server Jessica was amazing, food was delicious. I would only tone down the salt on the caramel dessert, but otherwise everything was excellent. South Edison never fails to create an amazing dining experience."

  • "Our third time dining there and we loved it...again. Octopus tacos and fried olives not to be missed."

  • "Away on vacation in Montauk and wanted to visit a special Resturant. Went through Trip Advisor and got good reviews. We agree with those reviews. The service, food and wine was very good. Excellent waitress."

  • "We went with a group of people and we were disappointed. First in the service- that they took 20 min to get someone at our table for drink service. Then we ordered the Kale chips & they were SO greasy; the grilled romaine salad was nothing to write home about and our entrees were fair. Best thing at the table was the fried chicken."

  • "South Edison never disappoints. We have eaten there several times and it's always our best meal in Montauk. We love the creativity of the dishes, the quality of the preparation, the freshness of the local produce and seafood. And the service is casual, but attentive and very helpful. Although the menu might be considered small by some, there is a wide variety of choices and we always find something to please everyone. Try the fried olives, a delicious surprise. The prices are high, like most places in Montauk, but definitely worth it. Our only issue with South Edison is how hard it is to get a reservation."

  • "We went to South Edison again. And again had great experience. This restaurant is on the top of my list to be recommended to people trying to make good dinner plans. Food was excellent so was the service. Cant wait to come back"

  • "Went here Tuesday night for 7 pm reservation. Restaurant wasn't very crowded...surprising for Montauk. Service was inattentive...waitress never checked to see if we needed anything, waited for seafood forks and cracker for Jonas crabs and was then unavailable to take payment...paid in cash and left. Food was good in spots...oysters, lobster sliders, smoked potatoes; other food not very good...baked clams, fried belly clams dry and shriveled. Pretty expensive considering service and spotty food."

  • "The lobster roll appetizers were the best I've ever had! The seafood was so fresh. I had the prawns and would have preferred to not see the heads. But they tasted great!"

  • "we ate at South Edison last summer while vacationing in Montauk, and i have been looking forward to going back for a whole year. This year's meal did not disappoint! even though they were out of kale chips :( i was able to enjoy what i believe to be the perfect entree--lobster sliders! imagine...lobster meat, butter and brioche! What could be better. We sat outside on picnic tables, just a block from the beach (you can smell the salt-air) with just enough light to provide ambiance, while classic rock soundtrack played. pure heaven! if you're in montauk, don't miss it!"

  • "We had a lovely dinner on a beautiful July evening. The Salmon with strawberries was very different and delicious! One of our party doesn't enjoy fish and ordered the cavetelli which had us fish lovers jealous. Our flounder sashimi crudo was extremely small BUT our excellent waiter advised us of this when it was being ordered so we were forewarned. It was absolutely delicious as was everything else served. The staff was attentive without being intrusive. The desserts were delicious and the bottle of wine we ordered was affordable and very good. Overall, a bit pricey but no one felt at all cheated."

  • "Nice dinner, good vibe, youngish crowd (20s-30s). Stick to seafood--octopus tacos & lobster buns were fantastic; pasta entree, not so much. Terrific blueberry shortcake for dessert. Salted caramel ice cream bar way too salty! Attractive host staff look incredibly bored & unwelcoming, more engaged with computer than any customer."

  • "Highly dissatisfied at the poor service. Don't order the Jonah crab claws, they were meely . The wait between appetizers and the main course was over an hour long and the restaurant was not even full. Also, we arrived on time for our reservation and still has to wait for our table that sat empty for 45 minutes."

  • "My husband and I have been to almost every eating establishment in Montauk and South Edison beats them all. The fresh ingredients, the complimentary textures and flavors of the is food is incredible. We first grabbed a drink at the bar while we waited for our table. The bartenders were excellent and were very knowledgeable about the menu. Once we got to our table the service was a little slow for the waitress to take our drink order. For our meal we ordered the Spicy Tuna BLT Chalupa and the Fried Belly Clams to start and then the Braised Boneless Short Rib and the Buttermilk Fried Chicken Leg. I highly recommend going here if it’s just 2 people or a big group. I will definitely be returning next time we are in town."

  • "sorry but the place is over rated. The prices are high for the quality of the food and as a sea food destination? doesn't have too much in way of the variety. Salmon was decent but curry sauce wasn't all that. The grilled romaine was good but weak on the amount of tomatoes and asparagus in there. Bread is good as is the butter that comes with it. Best thing on the menu is three mini lobster buns that come without mayo with a side of drawn butter. Not enough to draw me back though .. plenty of better choices for the money"
