We came here for a late dinner close to when they were closing right after enjoying the amazing Menemsha sunset. It was Labor Day weekend so it was busy and lots of people in line. Another spot in MV that closes earlier than you would...More

Grabbed a quick bite here on a sunny fall afternoon. It was one of the few places open not in the main ports. The ambience was charming and the food was excellent!
