We have been coming here for years, and love sitting at the bar watching the birds, boats and ferrys go by. The sushi master is super, always get the special first, then try some other sushi delights! The lobster cocktail is to die for, and the crabe cakes comes with a nice salad. The lobster bisque and clam chowder are... More

We went for dinner and sat upstairs on the Topside. You're right on the inlet so you get to see the boat traffic. I had the lobster roll which had nice chunks of lobster in it. My husband had the tuna which was a little too raw for him. You sit at patio furniture with umbrella's but the feeling of... More

Great fresh food, good beers on tap, and people/boat watching -- what else can you ask for in Montauk.

Not great but not far off. Went with 8 other people to enjoy view of Montauk and this place was nice. Sat by the water and had various selections including sushi, lobster, cod and a burger. Everyone said their food was outstanding, service was average. Great view of the inlet and prices are a little high but this is Montauk... More

We ate at the restaurant inside and it was better quality than the window. I had fish and chips with tartar sauce and it was delicious. The Crabcake was also delicious. Staff were courteous and views were very nice.

Above average but nothing crazy. The service was mediocre. I believe our watress was waiting on too many tables on her own. Fried calamari was NOT good...way overcooked.

On a beautiful summer night, we ventured out to Gosman's Topside to try this restaurant again after a season's absence. Well, surprise, surprise - the food was delicious, the service from "little Linda", our waitress,was attentive and special and our overall dining experience was superb. Don't miss the pei mussels in marinara sauce with outrageous garlic bread and the shrimp... More
