Black Dog is one of the things that say MV. The food there is really good but it is popular so it is busy.

On the Vineyard in the dead of winter went to an old favorite and was blown away with an amazing meal. We somewhat over loaded with a Caesar, fried oysters (a huge appetizer) and steak tips every single one of which was spectacular. I wish...More

That's a question best determined either by calling the joint directly or checking its website. I avoided that problem by going there for lunch.

Black Dog does have outside eating as long as the weather is warm enough. I don't believe dogs are allowed in the restaurant or gift shop. However I think there is a place to tie them outside?? Great food with ocean view... More
