    Way better than Lunch (or The Lobster Roll) across the way. Chiller vibes, all outdoor seating, and better food. The double shrimp cocktail, crab cakes, and fried oysters are all favorites.

    Either under the umbrella or in full sun, The Clam Bar serves up the excellent lobster roll, generous and flavorful. Also recommended are spicy crab-sweet corn chowder and fried oysters.

    Ask what's fresh and don't let them wiggle out of it. On our visit, fried clams were frozen. Lobster salad roll is good. Tuna bits are very good. Soft shell crab sandwich and steamers are both good.

    Must-do while driving to Montauk. Amazing and very generous lobster roll. An institution with a very well deserved reputation. Great staff and sometimes live rock music.

    Great spot for a quick bite on your way in/out of Montauk! (Usually my first stop before I get there). Good variety and delicious apps. They always have an awesome music selection too!

    Lobster Roll Report: The menu says "lobster salad roll" so don't be surprised when you don't get big chunks. One of my fav lobster rolls in the hood, but make sure to try the rolls at Fish Farm too.

    My favorite place on Long Island. Don't mess around, get the lobster roll, grilled fish specials, pick a chowder and finish it of with the fried clam strips

    Decent lobster rolls yet filled with shredded lobster instead of big juicy chunks of meat. Pretty good fried clams make this a solid stop on the way to or from Montauk.

    This long time east end restaurant is a good stop for basic and more elaborate fare. Last weekend we had the clam chowder, fried soft shell crab sandwich, and the grilled tuna sandwich.

    At a place like this, even a non-seafood lover can eat it all day. It’s a red shack with picnic tables. There’s beer too, which will encourage anyone to stay. Go for Blue Point, it’s the local brew.

    All fish is locally caught. Some of the freshest tuna I've had period. Also the Montauk Summer is a good brew for a hot day

    Large and delicious lobster roll. A meal in and of itself. Chowders are also good tho skimpy on the clam.

    What can I say, you can't go wrong with the lobster roll. It's overflowing with lobster and delicious down to the last bite.

    Lobster roll is so good. Not too much mayonnaise and definitely loaded with lobster

    On the stretch between Montauk and Amagansett, look for the yellow-and-white-striped umbrellas. We prefer the simple seafood here to the more famous Lunch, a.k.a. the Lobster Roll, down the street.

    Victor here. BEST Lobster Roll in the Hamptons although it's Napegue.. Betsy, Maybe someday I'll get that elusive, towering lobster roll like all the other tables, I've been hoping for 10 years. Hmmm

    Great service and lobster rolls. Key lime pie is amazing.

    Pull up a plastic chair and order from an array of fresh seafood brought in every afternoon from Montauk. Recent offerings included tuna bits, steamers, grilled swordfish and a mahi mahi sandwich. Read more

    As someone who has eaten A LOT of lobster rolls I'd rate this one a 7 (during the off season, perhaps they turn up the taste for summer)

    The lobster roll is small and a little bit pricey but definitely, definitely worth it.

    Bring cash, put on mosquito repellant, sit away from other diners, get steamers, get tuna, leave fast. Pros sit at the counter.

    Don't get the fried shrimp or fried scallops if you want then fresh...they're from a box "Mrs. Friday's breaded butterfly shrimp". Clams are fresh though.

    Fried scallops are pretty good. Clam roll was pretty disappointing. It was my first, so don't know if it was good or bad by standards. However, no flavor, bland batter and nothing on the roll. Meh :(

    Terrible service. The employees were condescending and rude. When asked for a chair so my father could sit during the 45 min wait, they made a huge deal and sat him far away. Overpriced mediocre food.
