Ordered lobster tacos (2 soft tacos - $26), seafood pasta, and fisherman's plate. The food is very average. Not bad, not good either. All meals were priced averagely $25. I am not a fan of eating in restaurants with all disposable utensils, especially if they are expected to be tipped properly. Servers are somewhat inattentive.

Casual and informal dining with extensive Raw bar, and fresh fish with daily specials and lobster dinners . Very reasonable prices. Small intimate Indoor restaurant with counter space and outdoor Dining area with portable heaters. Crowds flock to this eatery during warm weather. Chef-owner Chris and Chief are very good and productive. Warm and friendly atmosphere from co-owner Kevin and... More

Casual yet serious seafood place where everything is good. You cannot go wrong with any of their chowders. The most luscious lobster bisque I have tasted in years! Great daily specials. Today's appetizer was a rich fluffy crispy lobster corn fritter: nirvana on a plate! Cozy relaxed Malibu shack atmosphere with attentive, knowlegeable and fast service. Worth a very long... More

And every time I enter the parking lot, I say I will branch out, order something new and equally delicious. But every time (and every year) I end up with two fabulous lobster tacos. You cannot go wrong with any of the fish tacos. Informal, fast service, and bustling with activity every time I go, Bostwick's never disappoints.

Get the baked clams. They're delicious. Coconut shrimp rolls, awesome. Ask for waitress Lulu, she's great.

well known in the area, and recommended by locals, their specialty is fish tacos. I got the lobster taco, and although I'm from New England and have eaten Maine lobster many many times, this probably was the best "lobsta' roll" equivalent I have ever had. A little disappointment with the wait staff as they were gruff, but my sense is... More

Bostwicks consistent quality seafood is a Hamptons spot not to be missed. Great specials; ever present best lobster roll in town.

The teeny boppers who greet you at the front are like robots. They can't put 5 at a table for 6 etc! They are unaccomadating but I guess that is the way they were taught to be!

If you love lobster rolls then you will love Bostwick's. They make a delicious lobster roll pulled high with fresh lobster. I also love their soups - favorites are New England clam chowder and corn chowder. Both delicious and very filling. If you still have room for dessert after your soup and lobster roll then try the soft serve ice... More

A small place, but very good food. The chowder and lobster roll are very good. Not fancy place, but great food and a friendly staff
