The Ocean View has a full restaurant and a pub. We ate at the pub, a locals favorite. Excellent variety of draft beer, and many menu items to choose from. Great pub atmosphere and fresh popcorn is available free (and as much as you want). The Reuben, Fish Sandwich, Beef Stew, and Fried Clams are all great but there are... More

We went in October. Not our first time at this restaurant, but probably the best time. It was lobster night (a weekly occurrence) and the lobster was delicious, and relatively inexpensive for restaurant lobster. Okay, probably cheaper at Larsen's in Menemsha, but there's barely room there to eat. This is a real sit-down restaurant, carpeted, plenty of servers. Killer martinis.

This review is of the pub. They have a typical pub menu but everything is prepared well, consistently. They have excellent specials including the occasional lobster dinner or prime rib if you prefer. The bartenders know what they are doing. They can make a special cocktail or give you something right off the menu. Great play to relax and chat... More

Fresh sea food. Selection of vegetables rather limited. Bar stile restaurant (high chairs and tables). gets quite busy and a bit loud. great view on harbour. No free WiFi, a bit of a letdown in this respect. Food and beverages are served on discardable plates. Beer in plastic glasses. Relatively expensive taking the plastic dishes into account. clean toilets. Friendly... More

I have been to this restaurant several times but had not been in a few years. We ate in the bar and I was not impressed. They used to have a good salad bar but it is not what it used to be. We only paid 5.99 but it was not worth it. The server told us to go get... More

Stopped everyday during our vacation. The bartender was great the drinks even better. The atmosphere is great and the value is the best on the island.

We came here on recommendation of a nice boutique owner in the city but we were very disappointed. We had our table outside which can be very nice but there was absolutely no light when it became dark. The gasfire went out and when we asked if they could light it again they didn't do anything about it. So we... More

Reliable is the word for this place: no culinary awards but a satisfying meal at a good price in this neighborhood favorite. You can eat in the bar or the dining room, the menu is wide ranging and spans from pizza to prime rib (Fri,Sat). And (YES!) there's a salad bar--not especially extensive but what's there is top quality and... More

Love the bar and grill have to wait til 5:30p for meal off menu. Raining, free popcorn if you want it. They could use some add'l help it was packed and one bartender and two overworked waitresses. Chicken pie was good, drinks good, just the wait was troublesome,will still go every visit.
