Good food, great views

Top notch seafood and gorgeous view of the harbor. Sat outside on upper deck patio. Service was excellent. The knife and fork caesar salad was delicious and the seafood bouliobaise was incredible. A little on the pricey side but worth it.

We were anxious to try this highly rated restaurant located on the water close to our hotel. We arrived at 7 pm, and noticed that the chalkboard announcing today s specials was only showing one item. We were seated by the window on the lower level and had a spectacular view of the harbor. Our waiter was prompt in bringing... More

Blue Canoe was recommended by our inn host and was a very good choice. The outside seating area is small but very comfortable. The wait staff were very attentive, knowledgable about the menu and efficient. The seafood risotto was excellent and was almost over filled with shrimp, lobster, scallops and mussels. Highly recommend.

Passed by this restaurant many times and finally decided to try it Memorial Day weekend. The service was attentive. The salads were huge and fresh. Unfortunately they were out of fresh oysters which was not noted by the server. Fried calamari was uniquely done in long strips. The swordfish was delicious and moist. They were amenable to adjusting the menu... More

Stopped in here for a glass of wine, and an appetizer for the sunset view. I wished we had stayed for dinner as the couple next to us were raving about the curried mussels

We went here during a girls trip and were very happy with our experience. The view was beautiful. The menu options were varied and everything looked so delicious it was hard to choose. The portions were satisfying and the food was cooked perfectly. We had a horrible experience the evening before at another restaurant on the island so this was... More

From the moment we walked in, we had fantastic service and were seated outside on the deck. My SO had the lobster mac and cheese and I had the swordfish and both were delish. Great wine selection and our server was superb. Although we were both full our server recommended the Budino as a small finale to the meal, so... More

Following the good reviews, the general situation that most of the restaurants are not open that long and only overall limited options in Vineyard Haven, we tried the Blue Canoe. The food was very good, we had various seafood dishes and 2 risottos as well as superb clam starters. Prizes were very reasonable and the service very friendly and welcoming.... More

I wasn't sure where to dine for my birthday, so I did some research on line and chose Blue Canoe. I'm so glad I did!!! The decor is elegant/understated, the location on the harbor can't be beat (watching the sun set and the ferries come and go - heaven). The food was outstanding, and the service was great, too. We'll... More
