Food was bland to me. The coleslaw and Lobster slider was tasteless for $14.95! Never again for me. I like my food to have some type of seasoning in it. I wouldn't recommend this for folks that like their fish, Lobster seasoned...if you like bland...More

We visited on a Sunday, which was probably not a great decision - it was heaving with guests, contributing to long lines at the (two!) bathrooms, a pretty high decibel level and a slightly frantic atmosphere, as the army of servers swarmed the premises (in...More

Casual seafood restaurant known for its local fresh food. Lobster rolls are a standout. Be prepared for a wait at prime times. Indoor and outdoor seating. Closed off season.

On the highway to Montauk sits the venerable Lobster Roll. It is a time worn classic seafood stop. The signature lobster roll is very good, not the best I've ever had, but very good. The atmosphere is a little dated, but that is part of...More

We have gone to Montauk for 30 years, and always stop at the Lobster Roll, which is known here as Lunch. There is always a big crowd in summertime, and there are usually a lot of people waiting. Once you get a table, either inside...More

"This is where Summer begins." The Lobster Roll Restaurant, also known as "Lunch", is a nostalgic beach shack serving lunch and dinner to locals and guests from around the globe. Our critically acclaimed family restaurant serves beach-side favorites like lobster rolls, chowders, steamers, fresh seafood, chicken, burgers, sandwiches, steak and homemade pies. We also feature a full-bar, gluten-free menu, and an extensive children's menu. Our famous lobster salad is made with 100% pure cold water lobster meat, using the same recipe we created almost 50 years ago! Our lobster salad contains no imitation seafood products, no fillers, no preservatives, and no artificial flavorings. It's all about quality! We have indoor and outdoor seating amidst sand dunes, gardens of summer flowers, umbrellas, beach balls, picnic tables, and plenty of smiling faces! By popular demand, our entire menu is available for take-out. We can also cater to you!
