Blustery end of season visit. Sat upstairs on the open deck, highly recommended if it is sunny out. It was a tad windy and cool (early Oct) when we were there. The food was good but unremarkable, the lobster roll was quite plain. Service was good. I know from previous visits this is one of the busier spots to eat... More

A friend and I stopped for fish and chips and we were not disappointed. $15.99 for a large piece of battered fish and fries with a side of homemade tartare sauce and coleslaw. It's was not oily or greasy, the fish was flaky and delicious. The margaritas were huge! $10.99 and were served in tall tumbler. Very tasty. Great view... More

From the moment we walked into this establishment, we realised we'd probably made a mistake. The biggest mistake was staying. Not a word passed the welcoming hostess's lips, neither was there any eye contact. We requested a table for two and another hostess showed us to our table. The menu seemed fine but what was written bore little resemblance to... More

We actually got what we expected. The setting is lovely, right on the water. Do get an outside table. The place is very touristy & was busy but the service was good & quick. I had the clam chowder which was okay. Not great but not bad. Good place to grab a drink & take in the view.

Most of the menu is fried fish, so if that is what you like, you will love it. They do have great views as they are right on the water. I am a veggie and had a hard time eating here. My husband had a lobster roll which was not fried and he really liked it. He and his friend... More

You can't beat the location - right on the water in Edgartown, with lots of windows and outdoor seating. You expect to pay a little more just for where you are. Had lunch here on a beautiful October Sunday. I went for the burger. Not memorable, but cooked the way I requested (medium rare) with very fresh tomatoes and lettuce,... More

We had lunch here on a recent tour and were impressed with the quick & friendly service and wonderful food. The lobster quesadilla was a definite hit! The lobster rolls seemed to be very popular... with the lobster piled high on each roll. There's a wide selection of local fish, seafood and landlubber fare. Check it out for the wonderful... More

The views from the rooftop are beautiful. Plenty of lobster in the lobster roll. Been there several times and the food and service has always been good. Josie was our server very efficient and pleasant. The bloody Mary with the shrimp was great. The clam chowder is thick but not too thick with plenty of clams and potatoes . Atmosphere... More
