Wonderful. The simple but pleasant atmosphere. The food was excellent all around, each course. Our anniversary and the manager Rob did a few special things for us: champagne, flowers, a note on the table. The best of all was Chelsea, our server. We wanted to adopt her.

All of the hosts and waiters/waitresses were very friendly and helpful. We actually went back three different nights during our stay. My wife and I shared the Tower as a full meal one night! We also ordered the Halibut, New York steak and the wedge salad.

Everything had such intense flavor. Not spicy, just rich but not overdone. Loved everything we ordered.

Both my wife and I were extremely pleased with our meals. They were well prepared. My halibut was perfectly cooked. My wife had seared tuna, which I thought was a bit too seared, but she was very happy with it. We shared a single dessert that was of ample size for the two of us. We would definitely return if in the area again.

We have been going to Montauk's for many years and the seafood lovers in my family are always thrilled with the fresh from the sea offerings, especially the king crab legs! The steak lovers likewise are never disappointed and last night's NY Strip was perfect!

The food was amazing. Unfortunately, our server made us feel rushed and like an inconvenience. The other servers in the restaurant seemed open and friendly. Compared to the other restaurants in Vail, we were saddened to receive this kind of service at a restaurant with such excellent food.

I grew up fishing on the east coast and the freshness of Montauk's food made me believe it had been caught that day. Service was attentive and it was an awesome meal.

Service is always top notch at Montauk. I know it is a seafood place but the steaks are some of the best in town. Perfectly cooked with amazing sides to choose from. Always on our list when we visit Vail.

Food was outstanding. Service rushed and was for a special occasion and didn’t feel anything extra was done.
Felt because they saw us show up with kids we were relegated to a less than good spot. Food was outstanding and would go back felt a little disappointed in how much I spent vs treatment

We returned to Montauk Seafood Grill over Memorial Day Weekend after they had re-opened for the summer season, and it was another fabulous experience! We had oysters, grilled scallop dinner, a chef special crab cake dinner and the mud pie dessert and everything was awesome. Super fresh, amazing flavors and delicious!

We had a great dinner at Montauk Seafood Grill. It was actually the best restaurant/meal of our entire week in Vail. From the appetizer to the desserts, everything was fresh, delicious and well made. The waitress was very friendly and catered to all our needs. The ambience was great. They did a very good job spacing tables to keep people distant due to COVID. I highly recommend this restaurant.
