Toured the island and stopped here for dinner before the return trip to the mainland. Fabulous food and views!

We were given a nice table outside but my burger was not cooked the way it was ordered and I never received the condiments I requested-service was slow and it wasn't even busy. I will not return.

Had a nice entree and then our waiter asked if we would like dessert. We declined dessert and then said we would like some coffee. He tried diligently to dissuade us from having coffee by first telling us the pot of coffee was old and a new one had to be brewed and that would take a very long time.... More

On our first trip the Martha's Vineyard. we stopped in for lunch and it was amazing, from start to finish. Lawrence was our server and he made some excellent suggestions to me and my aunt. We loved the clam chowder and it was a wonderful choice for a quick bite, along with the Calamari, which ad a great presentation and... More

If you go to the top floor, there's a walkway with tables. We sat their for drinks and appetizers. Perfect view! The drinks were amazing as well; I had The Diva (a new specialty drink) which I highly recommend. This restaurant is on the pricier side though.

This time of year can be hit or miss with both service and food. We don't always get the greatest of help on island in summer to provide top notch and get what you pay for satisfaction. Well that was not the case here at The Blue Canoe. I do go out often, I am from the island and sad... More

I dined at the Blue Canoe on Monday night and couldn't be more pleased with our experience! The sunset from our downstairs table on the porch was breathtaking, and our meals (although 5 or so minutes later than we should've expected them) were wonderful. Our waitress was attentive and her recommendation of the Pan Fried Tomatoes and the Grassy Cod... More

Last week while on the Vineyard we made a reservation for 5 at the Blue Canoe. The atmosphere and food were amazing, unfortunately the praise stops there! The service was a joke at best. Our waiter was more interested in being funny than being a good waiter. He often referred to himself as our "handsome waiter". We waited for everything... More

We went to this restaurant last night. There were 4 of us. I had asked when I made the reservation not to put us on the catwalk. It started when I open my silver wear and it was filthy. Not sure how some could wrap silver wear in a cloth napkin without noticing.We asked our waitress for bread since we... More
