I came here a fee times with my kids for an early dinner. Great outdoor dining and ping pong tables and hammocks outside. After 8 the place fills up with 20s and 30s and it is a good scene on Friday and Saturday?, including a DJ at the inside bar.

The worst dinner and the worst burgers in the last three years in the United States. But the service is friendly and the restaurant is nice.

The menu was limited, but the food was delicious and healthful. The decor was farmhouse country, making the atmosphere friendly and informal. Our servers were friendly, too, but the food and drink was slow in coming. We were there without our kids, but a number of other families were there with kids of all ages.

This is a Montauk "hot spot" on weekends, a club scene, active bar(s), crowds, very hip--so I am told. But my wife and I went there for dinner on a Monday night, no hippies, no bar scene, just a half empty reasonably quiet dining room, pleasant service, excellent food and we can't wait to go back--on a Monday night!

We were meeting a bunch of different friends in the Hampton's Friday night, and had made a reservation for Resuchmeyers Friday eve. We tried to expand it for a large group but it was impossible. When we arrived there were huge empty tables!!! This was incredibly frustrating. The food was great, but that was not a good experience.

We went to Ruschmeyer's on a Tuesday night. Imagine our disappointment when we learned we had 2 choices, burgers or pizza. End of story. It was there unadvertised burger night. Nevertheless, We decided to have a nice glass of wine before moving on to another Montauk restaurant. Imagine our ensuing disappointment when the wine, a local Cab Franc, overpriced at $18 for a short glass, had that "been in the bottle too long" taste. End of story. The service was friendly and professional. The offerings, not so much.

Had brunch here over 4th of July weekend - arrived early so it wasn't too busy, we were able to have our choice of outdoor picnic tables. Bloody Mary, cappuccino, and Eggs Benedict with crab were all awesome.

We were a little disappointed when we found out that a party of our size required the prixe fixe tasting menu-- but the food was really good, so we got over it. Overall a great outdoor dining experience.

For people way cooler than us. A hip & hot spot for cool twentysomethings (if I remember correctly that used to be me...it was so long ago).

They made us feel welcome and we had a fun night people watching and remembering

Generally seasonal restaurants have struggling opening weekends, however at Ruschmeyers this was not the case (nor was it the case last year either!). We arrived an hour early for our reservation and were seated immediately by the wonderful hostess Kristin. Our server was attentive and sweet, and even brought me over a birthday glass of prosecco! While there aren't a huge amount of choices in Montauk, this has always been my #1!

yes, the clam pizza is quite delicious and one of the best versions I've had. All around good dining experience, very cool place. Servers, including bar tender at times act sort of indifferent. Couldn't tell if that is supposed to be what they are aiming for?

When we arrived the hostess asked us if we wanted to sit outside or inside. We said we were never there before and we wanted to sit where it was more fun. She sat us outside in a less than vibrant environment and immediately we asked to be moved inside. She told us that the table she had open for us was no longer available. We stayed outside in a less than enjoyable environment with poor service and bugs which were horribley biting us once the sun set. We could barely finish our meal. The lack of customer service was really surprising and with all the great restaurants in the Hamptons we will not be returning to this restaurant.

Ruschmeyers was truly a disappointment. For all the trouble it was getting a reservation and the back and forth with confirming it was not worth it at all. The service was awful and the food was just ok. They were very snooty and I would not go out of my way to ever go there again!

After having a good dinner there a few weeks ago, however, the service was awful, we went back for a second time. Again, the service was awful but, unfortunately, this time around so was the food. Awful wine list. Great hangout spot in Montauk, pretty people, outdoor seating. Go there for cocktails and to meet and greet but be prepared for long lines and rudeness.

This place was recommended, loosely, by my daughter. The dining area is lovely although, I found the large Japanese hanging lanterns to be incongruous with the beautiful wood structure. I sat on a very thin pad that was not very comfortable. The wine list left a lot to be desiredI ordered a beet/grapefruit salad that was not extraordinary, and roasted veggies were soggy, and roasted potatoes. The potatoes were hard on the outside and dry on the inside so, I sent them back. The waiter brought me asparagus and said he had tasted the potatoes and they were pretty bad. My boyfriend ordered swordfish that arrived decidedly overcooked. Desert was blueberry panacotta served in a small bell jar and was good but not enough to erase the dinner.

you may feel like you're at summer camp when you step foot onto ruschmeyer's, but be assured, you will not be eating camp food! i had one of the best lobster rolls ever at ruschmeyers. But even better...their de-constructed s'more dessert--perhaps one of my top ten favorite desserts ever! great cocktails too!

I've heard rumblings about this place via Unique Eats and Goop and I'm so glad I reserved a dinner date at this restaurant. My boyfriend and I loved everything about it. The ambiance, the layout, the view, the service, the food - it was all fantastic. I absolutely devoured my swordfish and my boyfriend loved his sea bass. We also loved the banana bread dessert. We will definitely recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a great place to eat in Montauk and we can't wait come back and try other food on the menu.

I really like the food at Ruschmeyer's and the overall ambience. The bar on Thursday nights (bingo!) is fabulous, and also pretty good if you go early on a Friday or Saturday. After 9pm on Saturday it is so crowded you cannot move, let alone order a drink. Ruschmeyer's shouldn't let in as many guests in order to preserve the experience of guests in the venue. What a shame!

Great ambiance, and the menu is pretty good compared to what else is available in MTK. The wait staff is your typical beach town lackadaisical quality, so be prepared, but that's part of game here.
