The supersymmetric index of the 4D N = 1 theory realized by a brane tiling coincides with the partition function of an integrable 2D lattice model. We argue that a class of half-BPS surface defects in brane tiling models are represented on the lattice model side by transfer matrices constructed from L-operators. For the simplest surface defects in theories with SU(2) flavor groups, we identify the relevant L-operator as that discovered by Sklyanin in the context of the eight-vertex model. We verify this identification by computing the indices of class-S and -Sk theories in the presence of the surface defects.
