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.

My first time here and based on my first impression the best thing about this restaurant is the view and its appearance. The food was mediocre at best and pricey for lunchtime...I had the fish and chips which was just ok, not much flavor...servers messed up my wife's order...never offered to make up for their mistake...in fact, the wait staff...

The best thing about this restaurant is the view, and its appearance. The food was a different story. I have been there before and I dont know what changed but I will probably never return. The 3 tiny baked clam appetizer was doughy and tasteless, the twin lobster tail dinner was lack luster, a potato and the tails, no vegetable.... More

We have been visiting Montauk and dining at Gosman's Dock for many years, and have never been disappointed. The atmosphere next to the water cannot be beat, and the food is always delicious. I would recommend the seafood, which is always fresh.

Gosman's is known for their seafood and ambience and they sure didn't disappoint! I hadn't been there in over 15 years and it was so worth the 3 hour drive from New Jersey to get there. First off, you have to try the Montauk Driftwood IPA they have. It's delicious! Pair it with a plate of steamers and it's perfection.... More

We visited Gosmans once for a snack lunch and once for dinner. The food in both cases was good quality and you are unlikely to be disappointed. If you want a little extra though, I recommend visiting either during daylight or sundown. I feel the restaurant loses a little atmosphere once it's dark, but before then the views are stunning...

Description
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.
