Tillie’s was excellent. I was in Montauk for a mother & daughter day . Tillie’s was our lunch stop. I had the chicken sandwich but I opted for the chicken to be grilled, the chef did an awesome job. Service was excellent. The restaurant was empty but that is expected in Montauk off season.

Lovely winter lunch spot in Montauk. Food and service were excellent. We had the lobster roll and Caesar salad with shrimp for lunch followed by the lemon ricotta pancakes for dessert and the fresh juices were great also. Not cheap but great food, service, ambiance with those beautiful ocean views!

Our waitress screwed up and we sat for an hour waiting for food, after which we were offered lame excuses for the delay HOWEVER - Jillian, the manager, did everything in her power to make us happy, and we left satisfied. Word to the wise - if your food hasn't shown up in a reasonable time you need to get up and ask someone or your time will be wasted

Good place as always, good food. Service was unfortunately really bad, I heard multiple tables complaining. Maybe they were a bit overwhelmed. Our server disappeared multiple times for a long duration of time,

I’ve dined at Tillies twice and both times I was disappointed. The food is always fabulous but the service is terrible. We went there for Sunday brunch and a family had three kids running( I mean racing fast) around the restaurant and no manager or server said a thing to them, it was extremely rude. We waited at least 20 min to even get served water, And the food took forever to come out. By the time we got our food, we were ready to leave. I tried to give Tillies a second chance but I will not be returning.

Fantastic service, seriously overpriced food (especially for their brunch buffet) and especially considering no alcohol is included. Gorgeous view, however. Would be interested in trying their regular dinner menu.

Nice place to enjoy a meal. Note that the prices on line menu are not what you find in the restaurant. The lobster roll listed at $25 is $35. The lobster crab cakes at $26 is actually one cake. But the food was good and the view of the ocean spectacular.

Amazing dinner for our special occasion. We love coming back here over and over again whenever we are at Montauk. We get treated very nicely and the staff is amazing. The food is excellent. My favorite is always the duck and foie gras ravioli. This time we were unable to stay at Gurneys because we only had 3 days off, but love coming back for Tillies brunch and the bar by the restaurant. Thank you.

Food was sent back. Every single table around us, which was 5 in total, had problems with their food and either sent it back, didn’t get something, or ended up requesting to speak with a manager. Terrible food and service and it was a weekday lunch with no crowd.

Went here for Sunday brunch. The place is very nice, waterfront area that was perfect for the sunny day. However, we waited approximately 30 minutes just for our drinks to come and over an hour for our food to arrive after we ordered it. We had to track down servers to find out where our food was, as tables that came after us were getting served before us. When my friends food arrived, it was freezing cold. For the price we paid for brunch, it was disappointing to have that kind of service and have to eat cold food.

The food is good and the service reasonable, but the perch above sandy beach and the magnificent Atlantic surf is what makes this a sensational summer afternoon lunch spot. Worth every penny.

Tillie's is a great place to enjoy lunch outdoors with friends, on the ocean at Gurney's Inn. My Gluten Free Cobb Salad was one of the best I had. Delicious, fresh and plentiful, perfect for a summer afternoon. Everyone else enjoyed their salads, seafood dish, sandwich and sweet potato fries. The service was excellent and very accomodating when needed!! Our waiter understood my Gluten issue and made sure my salad was prepared correctly. He also addressed any other special requests from our group. Can't wait to return!

Beautiful area on the Atlantic with a nice vibe/ambiance. Food was bland with no flavor and overpriced. Waitress was friendly but extremely slow and had no idea what was going on - even though place was empty. Table next to us walked out because of this issue. It's too bad because it's a great/expensive resort on the water.

Just love the view. It was our 52 nd wedding anniversary. Celebrating with lunch at Gurneys
The menu was so appetizing that we ordered too much. The waitress even asked if we were sure we wanted 4 entrees! Of course, we took it home for another delicious meal. We live close by.
This was by far, the best crab cake I have ever, ever, ever eaten...and judging by my age, that was quite a lot

This was our 5 th lunch there and we are planning another trip mid summer.
You MUST go.....

Love the breakfast views with the outside seating. On a sunny day, no better place to eat
breakfast in Montauk. The buffet offers everything you can want to eat for breakfast, but a bit pricey, but very good and the view makes it worth it. I go back multi-times each summer.

We had a good time at Tillie's overall. We still had a short wait even with a reservation, though it was a holiday weekend. The food was delicious and the menu has a lot of good options, though our food took a while to arrive. The service was a bit inattentive for such a nice restaurant. On the plus side, the atmosphere was lively and Gurney's is lovely overall. Also free valet!

Went on Mother’s Day for breakfast. Restaurant was less than half full. No flowers or special touches. Food took over an hour to come out (pancakes!!!). Our server was lovely and apologized many times. No basket of bread or muffins on the table and they didn’t even take our coffee off the bill. Not what I expect from a pricey restaurant at all!!!

Situated right on the water, the views are spectacular. We went for breakfast on couples get away weekend and the menu was small, pricey but they delivered on what we ordered. The food was served smoking hot and the servers were attentive and friendly.
The nutella french toast was lacking in Nutella, it seemed more like a Hershey syrup but it was plentiful and stuffed with fruit. The omelette was fluffy and light and had a nice mixture of diced ham and spinach. The best selection were the lemon ricotta pancakes served with blueberry compote. They were like clouds. Delicious. Everything was over priced, but you are paying for the water views...for a special breakfast, we would recommend it, but it's not for an everyday experience. No egg is worth 19 plus dollars.

Tillie's is closed until 12/21. I made a reservation on OpenTable, drove out to Tillie's only to find that the entire restaurant area is closed. Please shut off the ability to make reservations when you are closed.
