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.

We ate at Gosman's Topside where there's a great view of the water- the food and drinks were really good, and the waitress was very attentive

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

We had a lovely 39th anniversary dinner at the Inlet Cafe. The outdoor seating allowed us to have a wonderful view of Montauk Harbor with boats coming in and out. Our menu included calamari, scallops wrapped in pancetta and a lobster roll. Aside from the lobster roll which my husband said was 'okay', everything else was fine. We were there... More

The views were great. My family had a seat next to the water. The food was good but a bit pricey. The bill was $70 for two adults and two children. I would do it again for the scenery. A seagull ate the tartar sauce from a man who was sitting next to us. Cool…. My kids are still talking... More

This spot which sits above the ground level Gosman's is a great place for a relaxing lunch or dinner or just a place for drinks. You are welcomed when climbing up the stairs to my favorite sign guaranteeing a peaceful outing. Try to avoid getting a table near the bus or cooking stations as that noise just interferes with the... More

A very scenic location on the topside dock overlooking the inlet. We had the crab salad with mango and it was delicious. The crab was fresh and a generous portion. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. Again, I had a local craft beer which was great. We were on a 3 week trip and if I'd a six pack... More

This is a large restaurant. At dinner on the weekends in the summer months there is usually a long wait. If you get a table by the water you will enjoy the view. The seafood is usually good, but not inexpensive. We waited for our food for a while, not surprising for the amount of people. Another way is to... More

When the other restaurants in the area were closed @ 4 in the afternoon, (which I don't understand since it is a seasonal tourist town destination??), we tried this place & were pleasantly surprised by the good sushi and courteous wait staff service. Will definitely return!
