On the cusp of winter, Duryea's Lobster Deck has found its invincible summer.

The Montauk landmark will keep crackin' during the cold-weather months and will be ready for spring and summer 2015, too.

The casual restaurant was expected to close after the 2014 summer season. It was sold in spring, and a high-end seafood house was slated for the waterside site.

But Perry B. Duryea III, who'd planned to manage the destination for lobsters and lobster rolls only through 2014, said the place would be leased and operated by him next year, too.

"We never closed" for the 2014 season, due to customer demand, he said. Duryea said the Lobster Dock would remain open through the winter, except on Sundays.

"In late February or early March" the restaurant will return to a seven-day schedule, Duryea said. "In the same format we've had."

Duryea's grandfather and father operated the restaurant and wholesale seafood distributor before him.  Perry B. Duryea & Son has been in business for more than 80 years.

Perry B. Duryea Jr., who died in 2004, was speaker of the New York State Assembly, and the 1978 Republican gubernatorial nominee.
