At The Dock there are no cell phones, no screaming children, no checks, and no credit cards allowed. As you step through the facade covered with beheaded baby dolls and deer heads and your eyes adjust to the dark interior, you will notice it is filled with border-line inappropriate signs and knick knacks. Since 1973, The Dock has been known for its local vibe, quirky decoration, draft beers, and blue collar prices. Not only can you enjoy some of the best mussels in Montauk, but you can engage in conversation with some of the oldest beer drinkers Montauk has to offer. And as the saying goes: "At The Dock, we feel that in order for a joke to be funny, it must be told at someone’s expense."
