A recent visit on a cold winter evening was significantly marred by a freezing cold room; most diners kept their coats on the entire time! The baseboard heaters were working, and there was a space heater in use to warm a particularly chilly corner, but those efforts were not nearly enough. We mentioned this when we sat down, and the...

My husband and I spent a December night in Vineyard Haven following a business meeting for him. Not much open at this time! (Maybe not so good for choices, but lovely in its quiet way.) We have loved Le Grenier and will miss it; I understand that it will become an Italian restaurant next summer. We shall see. Anyway, the... More

My wife and I went to the Black Dog for lunch on a drizzly afternoon during our recent anniversary holiday to the Vineyard. We sat by the fire. It was lovely, dark and rainy outside, but warm inside. We were celebrating 26 years together. As always, the Quahog Chowder is exceptional at the Black Dog. I don't think the recipe's... More

The cozy, rustic ambiance and view here would make up for any food catastrophes, but it doesn't have to! A respectable assortment of traditional breakfast options, many are made from scratch and come in big heaping portions. The cups of soup came out cold, but this could have been because the place was packed - they took it back and... More

I have lost count of how many times we have gone here for breakfast over the past 30 years. I would rather have breakfast here than anywhere else in the world. Seriously!! They make their own sausage, which is amazing, the home fries are scrumptious, pancakes and inventive egg dishes are yummy, but the best is the Double Bypass omelet... More

Fried Oysters were wonderful. Situated right on the harbor. Outstanding charm and historic feel. It was cold and rainy, but cozy inside with the fireplace burning on a large hearth.

We ran here in the middle of a sudden October downpour and were pleased to find a warm, friendly spot for a late lunch. We both ordered lobster rolls which came with tasty home fries and a small container of very sweet coleslaw. The rolls were very generously topped with lobster that only needed a touch of salt and pepper.... More
