Wonderful hot lobster roll! Order one and head to the beach for the sunset or sit behind the fish market and watch the fishermen haul their catch off the boat and into the market. It just can not get fresher!

if you are buying fish I would recommend Larsen's Fish Market. Larsen's is much busier so it stands to reason the fish would turn over quicker. If you are purchasing steamers and lobsters; Menemsha Fish Market is EXCELLENT. We purchased 4 lobster clam bakes (includes...More

I highly recommend this fish market. We returned on 4 different occasions during our recent visit to the island. First and foremost- the lobster bisque. Best you'll ever taste and a fraction of the price of the worthless bowls passed off as bisques at most...More

Amazing Lobster Roll & Clam Chowder! We drove straight out to Menemsha to see the small marina and try the lobster roll. Fresh and tasty! Worth the drive and some great photo opportunities in the small quaint marina.

You need to drive to Menemsha just to enjoy the historic nature of this marina. Walk the whole area, enjoy the boats, eat fresh fish from the Fish Market, just nothing like it.
