We ordered take out from this place as we had a dog with us. Lunch for 2 was packaged expertly. The New England Clam Chowder and Lobster Bisque were AMAZING. Would definitely order again. Given the hefty price tags, the lobster rolls were so-so ....More

Locals are unlikely to be influenced by this review, visitors maybe more so. The super casual atmosphere is enhanced by the fact that all dinnerware is disposable, yes even plastic utensils. First the good news. Prices reflect the fact that Bostwick’s bills itself as a...More

This restaurant is great! Service is impeccable and the food is made fresh to order. Baked clams were amazing. Swordfish was the best I've had. Great place to have an amazing meal, drinks, and ice cream!

Basic Nautical setting, nice atmosphere. Very busy. We had to wait a few minutes for a larger table. Service was attentive and quick. We had excellent chowders, which came piping hot, lobster rolls and various salads.

On our first night in East Hampton we stopped at Boswicks for dinner. The staff were great! We had two children (one is a year old, the other is 2.5). The staff were wonderful with them. We had clam chowder, lobster salad wrap, chicken fingers,...More

A pleasure to visit after Labor Day. Everyone loves it so it gets very crowded. However- u can order to go. The peanut butter chocolate cake is a family favorite along with the all the fish and seafood. Wish they took reservations.

Our final lunch was a lobster fest at Bostwicks. Lobster tacos and lobster BLT. It's perfect to share because there are 2 tacos and the BLT can easily be cut in half. Super fresh seafood. The blood orange margarita was delish!

Bostwicks's has the best lobster rolls - full (and I mean full) of large lobster chunks on a toasted, buttered roll. You have to eat half the lobster with a fork to be able to pick up the other half in the roll and eat...More
