Water view eating.

Was here with Family, food and service good. A little pricey but that's understandable based on time of year and where you are.

Went there with my wife, the two kids and two american cousins. We arrived at 4pm so there was no people, we had a table outside on the edge of the water with a very nice view. We ordered some sushi which was good but not exceptional given the price you pay (4 dollars each for a shrimp nigiri!). I... More

The upside: location The Downside: The food is barely average and overpriced. After ordering from the self service walk up window, you wait around the corner for your food to arrive. It's presented.on paper plates with plastic utensils by cranky teenage girls. Then have a seat at the plastic, dirty, picnic table, where you really don't have a view of... More

Not a fancy place by any means but a great place to dine. Can sit on water's edge and watch the boats coming and going. A great show. The food is terrific and they have a wonderful sushi bar. The wait staff are pleasant and the service is great. So sit back watch the boats, have a drink and enjoy... More

My wife and I took a ride to Montauk and decided to have lunch at Gosman's. She ordered the fried shrimp platter and I ordered the fried combo platter which consisted of a piece of fish, two shrimp , clam strips and calamari. The bill was $40 and when we received the food it looked like prepackaged frozen seafood which... More

Haven't been here in years and we were really looking forward to some good seafood. The fried seafood platter was disappointing; we all agreed it would be better broiled, but they do not offer it that way. I grilled some frozen Matlaws stuffed clams the next day, my sister in law said they were much better than the ones she... More

Decided to come here to have local fish as sushi. The waitress wouldn't take our order without us giving the number off of the menu. Even an order of salmon and avocado roll she couldn't take without a number off the menu. Finally I wanted to order what I had come for: fresh striped bass. The quintessential fish of Montauk....

We enjoyed the views of the water and boats leaving and entering the harbor. Clams were fresh and chilled. Enjoyed the Lobster Roll although a little more salad than lobster pieces. Delicious french fries! Great catch of the day (Fluke) first tacos. Good and enjoyable lunch!

Not much more to say here except: GOOD VIEW GREAT SERVICE AND FRESH FOOD... This week went back to back for dinner. Definitely a good place to grab a few things and share plus some bottles of rosé... Tip: don't tell the hostess you're there for apps and drinks, she'll make you sit at bar which isn't the best of... More
