After a round of golf, Ken and I showered and got ready for dinner at Inlet Seafood. The restaurant is located in Montauk and looks like you’re entering someone’s home when you walk in – the restaurant is on the second floor and the first floor has tour guides, restrooms, and a patio where you can watch the sunset. We put our names in at the hostess stand since they don’t take reservations, but were lucky enough to snag a pair of seats at the bar, where they serve the full menu.

We started with clam chowder:


The clam chowder wasn’t cream based, instead, it was a light broth with large clams, vegetables, and herbs and spices. Next, we ordered the fluke sashimi, a special they had that night, with cilantro:


The service was very slow, which surprised us when we saw the appetizer – it was literally fluke cut up with one cilantro leaf per piece of fluke.

For our entree, we decided to share the fish and chips:


The Inlet roll:


Crunchy spicy tuna, avocado, and ponzu sauce. We were surprised with the quality of the food – so many people raved about the restaurant but we thought it was very mediocre. The fish and chips were very stale (I think it had been sitting in the kitchen for a while because the batter was very heavy and it was way too greasy). We heard that the sushi there is absolutely amazing and on par with what you get in New York – I thought the inlet roll was okay but pretty flavorless compared to what we get for takeout in the city.

We enjoyed sitting at the bar and people watching but don’t think this restaurant is on our list of go-tos the next time we visit Montauk.
