My girlfriend, myself and her daughter visited Gosman's Topside in August. Worst service ever! The view was amazing. Don't think you can sit and have a nice drink and enjoy the view either! The drinks were terrible and so were the apps. Don't wait your...More

Perfect Montauk location for dinner and/or drinks. On upper deck overlooking harbor. Ideal on nice night. Adult oriented. Lobsters terrific, and traditional seafood quality has improved. Always make it a point to have dinner here each vacation.
