Horrible. They informed us that they are closing in 2 weeks and it's a good thing because it's horrible, as I said. The ambiance is gross and depressing and I certainly don't want to feel that I'm eating in a sports bar with the 3 big screens. The menu is so uninspired and in this day and age it's really unforgivable.
I can totally understand why they are closing and know that this review will be meaningless.

Solid if not inspired food, but pleasant neighborhood casual place with decent prices and friendly staff. Sunday brunch was dead (which was welcome) but often it is quite vibrant at night. Good for souped up basics and bar food.

Staying at a hotel down the street and was looking for a quick bite to eat without waiting in line. Management accommodated us quickly and personally took care of our table ( They had a surprise wedding party show up that wasn't planned for ).
Fire roasted oysters were excellent, I decided on the grilled chicken salad which was surprisingly wonderful with the lemon vinaigrette dressing. Side note: I don't always eat this healthy, but was on vacation and haven't had a chance to exercise lately. My wife splurged with the fish and chips and she said it was tasty.

The restaurant was empty at 12pm. The service was very good. The food was hit or miss. The fried shrimp deviled eggs were very good as were the tater tots. Everything went down hill from there. The fish tacos although crunch were tasteless. The nachos were very basic, and the pancakes were very small.

We went to a movie at the Film Forum a block away and came here for dinner. Not sure at 8:00 pm we were prepared for as dark a bar as this is. Lots of surfing movies and also sports. Not fine dining. The waitperson was nice and friendly and service was fine. Hard to read the menu in the dark. For two draft beers, a vietnamese wrap and two tacos with tax and tip $56. Not expensive but not a cheap eat. The tacos were great and the vietnamese wrap a bit on the tasteless side, but fresh. It came with a good sized and tasty green salad. I don't think we would go back, but the ambiance for the younger was good.

Disappponted. Everything was bland and under-seasoned. The service was not very enthusiastic and was unhelpful in ordering. The drinks were not impressive. I would not return, and judging from the restaurant being nearly empty at 8pm, I assume they struggle with repeat business.

I was excited to visit a Marc Murphy restaurant and found this location convenient to our hotel. My husband and I both had fried fish preparations--he had the fish and chips meal and I ordered the fish tacos. We each found our dish to be excellent, in taste and portion size. We would definitely visit again and recommend to others.

Good small plates - deviled eggs with shrimp, and the jalapeño cheddar tater tots. The spam and fried oyster sandwich was just OK. Good cocktails- beer selection is OK

We want to move closer so we can come here all the time! Great ambiance and service. Went for the seafood but wound up having chicken burgers and hot dogs with mac and cheese (it was Memorial Day Weekend and as close as we were getting to a barbecue).

Only downside was the very small number of wines available by the glass.

Can't wait to go back

The lobster rolls and Montaulk Mules are the perfect combo for a summer afternoon. The lobster mac and cheese is amazing as well. Rob is the best bartender there, always so nice!

One of my favorite neighborhood joints for creative cocktails and comfort food. Service can be a bit slow at times, but otherwise top notch. The lobster mac & cheese is heaven in your mouth and there are so many great app options (bring a group to try them all).

Kind of disappointing, we felt the lobster roll was way over seasoned, all you tasted was tarragon and didn't taste the lobster.

Good West Village lunch option, close to West 4th St subway too.

Kudos to the bartender for his excellent music playlist.

Great food, prompt service. It was a little loud but there was a large party going on the night we were there. The dining areas are surrounding the bar so the entire place is a little on the loud side. Overall very good!

I loved the food at this restaurant and it came highly recommended by friends. The one issue during my visit was, one person in our party had a shellfish allergy and we found out that all the food is fryed in the same fryolater oil as shrimp, so he could not really eat anything on the menu that was fried which was disappointing. We were planning to order the calamari or guacamole and chips and he normally would eat those no problem, but he could not touch them. He would have liked french fries but did not get those either. I would have assumed since a shellfish allergy is not an uncommon one, and they have so many friend items on the menu that they may separate the oils.

There was a dog sitting on a woman's lap at the next table ! At one point I saw that the dog had his paws on the table and was licking the table ! Not a place I would ever go back to.

Average food for high price. And I'm a West village native of 11 years. Average service, had to ask for everything. TV sports bar vibe in what should be a nicer environment to reflect the feeling of Montauk, a place I visit frequently. Do not recommend compared to all the other choices in the neighborhood
