We had a sumptuous meal here while vacationing on the Vineyard. Three of us ate the freshest seafood, and the wine was superb. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Very disappointed. Service was poor. Hamburger undercooked. .okay cold in the middle. Re cook was well done. They did comp the burger. Waited 15 min to order desert. Waitress brought the check. Even with the comped burger....would not try again.

Blue Canoe is on the harbor in Vineyard Haven, Martha's Vineyard. It is reasonably priced with wonderfully fresh seafood. Seating is available both outdoors and indoors. Ask for a seat by a window overlooking the harbor. The place bustles and the wait staff is super friendly. Make sure to make a reservation for night dining.

Although we had no reservation, the staff worked it out and gave us a lovely table by the window with a gentle breeze and a water view. I got the lobster fritters and fried green tomatoes, both appetizers, and they were delicious! My husband had the chicken and really enjoyed it as well. It's a bit pricey -mine was $30... More

Fantastic waterside location. Enjoyed delicious dinner, however the encouraged "cocktails" on the menu were not good at all. Next time, order wine or beer.

With a beautiful harbour view, good and well-presented food very capably served, and a charming interior Blue Canoe is well worth visiting. Plus it is kid friendly (children get to choose treats from a toy chest after eating). Sunset can be particularly lovely. Parking is a challenge though but there is plenty close by.

I don't really know if the previous reviews are friends of the owners because I didn't have the same experience as them. I went out to dinner with my girlfriend because she really wanted to stay in Vineyard Haven and there really aren't many choices. Anyway...we went and we ordered a salad, mussels and Lobster Mac and cheese. Where do... More

This was the first meal for the hubs and I after arriving on island. Nice view and surprisingly fresh and tasty food. Lobster BLT was yum, as way the fish o' day sammy.

I have patronized this restaurant 3 times and every experience has been lovely. The view is beautiful -- make sure to come before dark. The staff is well trained. The food is absolutely delicious. The only drawback is the cost.

Cuisine is among best on Island. Every menu offering is well executed, with sophisticated flavors and pairings. Curry Mussels, Lobster Fritters, Planked Salmon, Seafood Risotto all delicious and ample. We celebrated a birthday and the staff and particularly Robin our server were very accommodating and cheerful despite the very busy evening. We strongly suggest this waterfront gem and will revisit... More
