Spent three nights on Martha's Vineyard and ended up eating dinner here twice. Fish and Chips were HUGE and cooked just right. Fries with truffle oil...mac and cheese with truffle oil...everything we had was awesome. We will certainly make a point to come back here...More

The chowder is unique. Lots of clam and light on the heavy cream. My husband got the seafood risotto and it was delicious! You can make reservations, but we went for an early dinner so it wasn't crowded.
