Of all the beachfront restaurants in Montauk, Navy Beach is a favorite. Owned by partners Frank and Kristina Davis, Franklin Ferguson, Leyla Marchetto, and Martin Cabrera, Navy Beach splashed on the Montauk restaurant scene in 2010 and has been a preferred destination for locals and visitors alike ever since.
Positioned on a 200-foot private beach, the laid-back, family-friendly waterfront location offers a memorable dining experience with a wonderful sunset view. The kitchen delivers a quality fish-centric menu, with an emphasis on sustainable seafood and local produce.
Head to Navy Beach for a cocktail. Try the South Fork fizz, made with vodka or gin, mint, lemon and cucumber soda, or the Aperol spritz.
The restaurant has a nice variety of small plates, perfect for sharing. A highlight is the tuna tostada made with pickled serrano, wasabi tobiko, avocado, and oil cured olives.
The salad menu is also strong, with choices like the chickpea falafel served with ruby red beets, red sorrel, mint-tzatziki, or the tortilla salad consisting of romaine, avocado, black beans, skillet corn, and a coconut-lime vinaigrette.
Under the large plates portion of the menu, the buttermilk fried chicken with cheddar-jalapeño cornbread, house made slaw, spicy honey drizzle is a fan favorite.
Navy Beach is open for lunch and dinner daily in season. Visit www.navybeach.com.
