Summer Lovin': Top 5 Places For A Montauk Date!

by Kyle Langan · June 23, 2011

Let’s face it, summer isn’t summer without a little romance. And because Montauk growing in popularity, you don’t want to be out of the loop populating this beachside playground. That’s why, between sunning yourself on the beach by day and partying into the wee hours of the night, you need a relaxing dinner locale that can deliver that aura of love…or, you know, just lust.

1. Inlet Seafood Restaurant Not only does it have the some of the best sushi the Hamptons can offer, but it also boasts breathtaking panoramic views of Montauk Harbor and the Block Island Sound. Grab a seat on the deck, snuggle up with your hunny, and watch the sunset…

2. Surf Lodge MTK is becoming the place to be, no one can deny it, and with such a hip spot to hang as Surf Lodge, it’s not hard to see why. This is the place to go for the couple who have been going strong for a while and need a nice night on the town. After dinner, grab a few drinks on the back deck, lie back on the plush outdoor sofas, and stare longingly into the eyes of your lover as the sensational sounds of live music and views of Lake Montauk set the mood for a night you won’t soon forget…

3. The Gigshack If you’re going for a more low-key, fun, not-sure-if-I-want-a-second-date vibe, head to the “shack”. There’s usually always some live bands or artists jamming out, creating a cool feel, and it’s located right on Main Street so if the date isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, you’ll probably see someone walking past you know and can chat with them instead...

4. Navy Beach Though it’s somewhat off the beaten path, this little eatery doesn’t skimp out on taste or style. It’s becoming trendier and trendier, and the drink menu is a must to check out. And good news is, the mac n’ cheese isn’t just for the kids!

5. The Harvest Yeah, it’s family style, which means the portions are enormous, but that just means you have extra to bring home for the kids, or, for lunch the next day, or even for the friend that came out to visit for “the weekend” 6 weeks ago who you can’t quite get to leave. But who can blame 'em, no one wants to leave the Hamptons.
