The Montauk’s charm lies in its lively outdoor patio and indoor-outdoor main bar area. The unique seating arrangement adds character to the space, providing a fun and inviting atmosphere.

Despite the initial quirkiness, our large group found the seating overall comfortable, and the live DJ elevated the mood during our brunch visit.


The menu at The Montauk offers a nice variety without overwhelming choices. We indulged in the salmon skewers, burrata and fig, shoestring fries, burger with Caesar salad, and crispy rock shrimp.

Each dish was a culinary delight, with the burger cooked to a perfect medium, the fries crispy and flavorful, and the shrimp paired with a delectable sweet and spicy chili sauce. The Brussels sprout taco and classic breakfast also stood out, impressing our taste buds.
