In an area where eating out can be expensive and boring, MV Chowder has a great menu with reasonable prices. The chicken dish is awesome, the fish is always fresh, and the bar serves some really good and interesting drinks. The servers are very personable and seem to genuinely like their job! As a year-rounder, I appreciate that the restaurant... More

We had a late lunch here and it was delicious. I agree with previous reviewers that the inside dining area is a little dark for a beach side restaurant. We all sampled each other’s meals, and everything will be good. The clam chowder lived up to the claim of “best” – full of veggies and clams – minus the flour... More

There was a thirty minute wait. The hostess was very helpful and pleasant and called us on our cell phone when a table was available. We sat in the lounge and were served by a fabulous waitress (I wish I could remember her name but she was blond). She checked with the chef several times to inquire about gluten and... More

This was chowder at its best! We took a table on the deck; it was a hot summer day and the streets were crowded with tourist . We ordered the New England Clam chowder- it was perfect with lots of clams. We also had a lobster roll.

We visited Martha's Vineyard for the day. Prior to going we looked on Trip Advisor and had a few restaurants in mind. The Chowder company was one possibility. I'm so glad we stopped in for a late lunch. There is a small outdoor area but since we had just bent o the beach and shopping we wanted to sit in... More

Incredible food! Very impressed. Went on a recommendation & loved! My nephew didn't like his buffalo chicken nuggets, but that's what he gets for ordering "fake food" !
