Gosman’s has become almost synonymous with Montauk. There’s no other restaurant quite like this big, bustling place, perched on pilings at the channel where Montauk Harbor meets the bay. You can always get clams, oysters, shrimp, scallops, steamers, all sorts of fish just off the boats, bisques, and chowders — not to mention lobsters. There’s a new chef, new menu items, and new tableware this year. The three smaller sidekick restaurants have their own menus, but you can count on lobsters and seafood. Each is open in season from noon to 10 p.m. There’s also a fish market in Gosman’s mini mall.
Gosman’s Clam Bar — You can order raw seafood, fried clam fritters, and burgers, and eat at picnic tables.
Gosman’s Inlet Cafe — Indoor and outdoor dining with lobsters and lots of other seafood dishes. This is the only Gosman’s restaurant that serves sushi. And it is kid friendly.
Gosman’s Topside — With the best view of the harbor, the Topside is the upper deck version of Gosman’s Inlet. Guests 16 and older can enjoy frozen drinks, cocktails, and seafood under umbrellas on the second-floor patio. Topside shares Inlet’s menu, but is closed on rainy days.
