We look forward to this all winter long. We live about 80 miles west of Gosman's and make the trip to eat there quite a few times a season. Never ever disappointed. I always say if you can't get the best seafood here there is no other place. We love the view and atomoshpere of the restaurant. Our grandchildren live... More

I've been coming to Gosman's for over 20 years... The quality has never declined. It's a great change of pace when you're going out east... amongst all the pretentious restaurants this is a nice casual place with beautiful views and charm... you won't be disappointed the fish is always fresh and they also offer other options if you don't like...

We had a great meal in what was the most family friendly restaurant we visited in montauk. Finally somewhere with kids portions, an understanding of how tough it can be feeding a toddler in public some days and a great setting and menu, loved it

Brought my son out fishing on a charter boat in Montauk for his birthday and decided to eat dinner at Gosman's Restaurant. We both ordered the same items which consisted of Lobster Bisque, Stuffed Clams and Stuffed Shimp. The soup and clams were mediocre at best, but the shrimp was basically inedible. It was a rubbery and tasteless concoction that... More

Gosman's has been a staple in Montauk forever. In season, there is always a wait to get in. Food is good, service can be slow, lot's of family's and is directly on the inlet. I have eaten there many times and continue to go back.

Thank you for an amazing season together. We will be re-opening on May 1st 2016 ------ Gosman's Restaurant, located on the edge of the Montauk Harbor, has the best seafood this side of the Mississippi with incredible views to match. We are Montauk's favorite seafood restaurant serving up the freshest seafood around. We have our very own fish market, so we're able to serve our seafood straight from boat to kitchen. Make sure to try one of our lobster dishes, they are pretty spectacular and we make them every which way possible. Soak up the good vibes and enjoy the beauty of the Montauk Harbor as you relax on our outdoor patio sipping an ice cold beer. We have breathtaking views that will help ease your stress away. Gosman's Dock Restaurant is a great place to celebrate any occasion. We offer a variety of options and different packages to accommodate the different parties and gatherings here in Montauk. We take pride in serving the best seafood this side of the Mississippi and can't wait for you to join us for lunch, dinner, drinks and a scenic view to remember.
