Real popular place, had a wait for a table outside but it was worth it. Lobster and steak were both good and reasonably priced. Recommend it when you are in Edgartown

Great atmosphere, very nice lobster rolls. The Calamari is the best on the island. If you are in the Vineyards try this place for sure.
