A summer standard becomes a Fall/Winter "hot spot".

The "Rigga" is one of the best spots for local seafood favorites as well as a pretty "mean" roast beef. As summer sun gives way to Nor'easter's you should know that the heat from the fireplace, the kitchen and the warm welcome of the staff make it a great spot in the Winter.

We visited in October this year, second time for us. My wife had broiled scallops which were absolutely great. I had bouillabaisse. It was ok, a little skimpy on the shellfish.

The Square Rigger Restaurant is my all-time favorite restaurant. The food is outstanding. The waiters and waitresses are all extremely friendly and welcoming. It is a great atmosphere. I love eating at this restaurant when I go to Martha's Vineyard. This is definitely a must-go-to place on Martha's Vineyard!

This place is a find, conveniently located and a little bit away from the downtown congestion of Edgartown. Excellent seafood and wonderful service. The lobster Newberg was great!!! A real old school dish but expertly prepared and absolutely delicious. There is an open kitchen, so the seating in that area is a little noisy, but fine for a group.. If... More

The Rigger used to be one of our favorite restaurants, especially in the winter. The prime rib is still very good but the seafood dishes are just ok. It certainly is not what it used to be. They have also jacked up the prices. I would rather pay high prices for food at other restaurants like Alchemy when you know... More

We have been coming to the Vineyard for well over 30 years. Even bought a season home. The Square Rigger has always been our first meal on the island. Reason - consistently good food. If you like lobster come here - boiled, baked stuffed, saute you can't go wrong. Like Prime Rib? It is carved on the spot with Yorkshire... More
