Tonight myself, my wife, and my friends visited the blue canoe on july 9th, I had the surf and turf special which was excellently prepared as well as the seafood risotto was the best I'd had in a while. We sat on the downstairs porch and was served by a young waitress Becky , who was very professional and very... More

My husband and I dined at Blue Canoe twice during a recent visit to Martha's Vineyard, and had a great experience each time. The restaurant doesn't look like much from the road, but has great views of Vineyard Haven harbor, better than the much-hyped Black Dog, plus Blue Canoe takes reservations (unlike BD). The fried green tomato appetizer is deelish,... More

We had a lovely meal at the Blue Canoe last week! The service was attentive and fun, and the view from the upstairs dining room was phenomenal - we loved watching the boats in Vineyard Haven harbor. I tried the grassy haddock, crab cake spring rolls, and lobster fritters and would highly recommend all of those, although special mention goes... More

This restaurant was recommended by a restaurant manager. We made a reservation for 5 pm and were given a choice of inside or on the open deck upstairs. We chose the deck viewing a marina, schooner in the distance and four young girls on a paddleboard. Lovely. Our server Anna was very accommodating. We placed our orders, my friend's Cobb... More

My family and I have eaten here before and were expecting a nice evening. We were seated at a table overlooking the water. Our waitress was very accommodating, lowering the blinds to keep the setting sun out of our eyes. She asked for our drink orders. I asked for gin and she reminded us that the town of Vineyard Haven... More

We love to come to this restaurant, sit outside on the upper balcony, feel the summer wind, see the harbor and its boats and eat truly delicious food. A combination that is almost impossible to find. And the service is friendly and competent. Tonight we had risotto, and it was exquisite. We sail to Vineyard Haven often and look forward... More

We were very pleased with the quality of food served and great menu selections. The deviled egg appetizer was very different. The service was poor and not to the level we would expect with the price of the entrees. Our drink orders took over 15 minutes and the coffee served at the end of meal was cold and had to... More

Expected great things after reading other reviews so I was a bit disappointed. The place is small but right on the water so very pretty. It was our waitress' (Erica) 1st night there - maybe first time waitressing anywhere. He timing was way off - she neglected to bring bread, refill water, sam for seconds on beer or coffee but...

After our day of frolicking and a nap, we needed dinner around 9:00. I remembered seeing a sign about dinner from 5:00 - 10:00. Down a little nook, what a find! Besides the best view on the island (any closer to the ocean, you'd be in it), the cool breeze from the huge windows added a sense of relaxation. Then... More

Shared a bottle of wine with our entrees. Had a great table overlooking the water. Food was great; options for land lubbers as well as fish lovers.
