Watched champions league there and had a fish burger there. Felt right at home. Place exists since 1837 and had only three owners. Loved by the locals, many regulars Definitely coming back, if I will be in Montauk again

Stopped in Shagwong for dinner Saturday evening. We had a wonderful time. Christine the manager was very pleasant and nice. Our server was on point and our dinner, burgers and wings, were perfect. We look forward to going back again.
