For a high-end dining experience in the laid-back surf town, go to the halcyon Crow's Nest perched on southern end of Lake Montauk. Sit under the string lights and watch sunset while dining on elevated seafood-centric dishes.

And while there are plenty of great Hamptons restaurants out east, we’ve narrowed in on Montauk’s best waterfront restaurants and bars, seafood restaurants and cheap eats joints specifically for those traveling to the shore.
