Relax with good food

Went here on the last night of our vaca. They have a good wine list, and a good view of the harbor. Food was really good.

For the best experience, get a table outside on the deck to enjoy the harbor view. The service was friendly but slow and confused. We were the first to sit in our area but the last to get our food served. Even the 3 tables surrounding us noticed and made a comment. The Riesling mojito was a surprisingly decent drink... More

Positives: It is on Martha's Vineyards and it is on the water Negatives: The prices are outrageous even by Boston standards and the quality of what was served for the king's ransom prices was poor. I had a lobster roll, which cost $28 and involved random bits of lobster claws loosely packed in a hotdog looking bun. Doused in lemon... More

Our first visit but will be our "go to" in Vineyard Haven. Ate on second floor porch overlooking the harbor. My stripe bass fish cake sandwich was better than expected (and fries are yummy). My husband had clam chowder which he raved about and a dish called "devilish eggs" ... deviled eggs with lobster and topped with bacon on a... More

Went to Blue Canoe for dinner with family and waited nearly 2 hours for dinner!! Granted, we had a beautiful view of the water from our table, but with two children at the table ages 5 and 8, it was really a bummer to have a wait that long. When the food finally came, the other members of the group... More

Our group went for lunch. We were promptly seated upstairs inside. It took a long time for the food to come. The dishes were pricey and the grilled chicken and blackened chicken were too burnt. I've had plenty of blackened and grilled dishes before, so I know this was too overcooked. The seafood dishes were just OK.

I stopped in here for a snack one day and ended up going back and bringing friends two more times. The food is fantastic. The lonster fritters and lobster mac were my favorites. The service was even better. You could tell that everyone there was happy to be there. I had three different waiters/waitresses, and all were great. If I... More

I don't care for extremely noisy restaurants, so this one was very pleasant! We sat on the deck with a great view, no reservations on a Sunday evening. Food was great - friend enjoyed the lobster mac, other had roasted chicken, and I loved the seafood risotto - TONS of seafood, great flavor!!! We had the coconut shrimp for an... More

Interesting layout..spaces inside and out. Views of the harbor. White and blue theme. Started with a Bad Martha's Summer Ale and enjoyed a good sized swordfish steak for dinner. Good service. Went on a Wednesday night early without a reservation and were seated right away. Would suggest calling ahead. One drawback... The restrooms are located in an adjacent building...close but... More
