Hi Infatuation reader. With restaurants around the country reopening, we understand that socializing in any form might still feel strange, and poses risks too. Should you go out to eat? That’s up to you. But we’ll continue to keep you informed as best we can. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email us at community@theinfatuation.com.

Duryea's Lobster Deck & Seafood Market

(631) 668-2410

65 Tuthill Rd

Montauk, NY 11954

Some people believe Duryea’s has the best lobster roll in the Hamptons – we won’t go that far. The lobster salad is chunky and delicious, but there’s just too much sesame bun for our taste. That said, we’ll happily take this down any day. Also, there is no better location to face stuff a roll than on the deck overlooking the water at Montauk’s OG seafood shack, especially during sunset.

Duryea’s was a Montauk classic for years - a place where you ate lobster on paper plates and ordered at the counter. You still order at a counter, but after a takeover and renovation, there are now bottles of rosé on every table and very tan, slick waiters who bring the food to you - think Sunset Beach, with people who are wearing slightly more clothes. If you want to feel like you’re on a fancy vacation, this is the place to be. When it comes to food, skip the lobster and stick to the straightforward raw bar items as well as one of the massive salads if you’re with a group.

Duryea’s used to be an extremely low-key, BYOB, eat-lobster-off-a-plastic-plate sort of situation, but was taken over by new ownership last year, and is now the kind of place where people order magnums of rosé and seafood towers. You still order at a counter though, so the result is somewhere between chill lobster deck and Sunset Beach without the drive. They don’t take reservations, so come early.
