Better chance of seating by the water if you are not a single diner

I am sure there was a line for breakfast as their breakfast time ran OVER so that they were unable to open for lunch until 12:30. This happened to work in my favor because they were taking a waiting list of reservations for lunch then right away. After waiting 40 minutes during which I walked... read more

Friendly waitress with interesting excuses when things weren't working out for me. Yes I liked the $9 glass of Malbec. Didn't like her excuse when my second drink didn't show up. Seems the bartender was new and didn't pour it. Shouldn't she be nudging him along? When my couscous was cold and lumpy she said that's the way it's supposed... More

On a recent visit to Martha's Vineyard we stopped by for a drink and an app and waitress could barely be bothered to take our order when she found out we wouldn't be ordering full dinner. Place was nearly empty so it wasn't like we were taking a table with others waiting for it. I'll try someplace else next time... More

We stopped in for lunch and we must have timed it right as we found parking really close and no wait it was around 1:00 pm. We went right in and ordered all of our food didn't have to wait long. Food was really good I didn't know what to expect but was very happy our whole group really enjoyed... More

It was our first time on the vineyard so we went by other trip advisor reviews for restaurants. The cod was the freshest we've ever had. Absolutely delicious! ! Our only complaint was no air conditioning. Even though we sat by the window there was very little breeze and the temperature and humidity was high. Portions were. I and food... More

As regular visitors to Martha's Vineyard and accustomed to crowded restaurants, this was an extreme disappointment. We waited only briefly for a table on the deck, as the tavern was not that crowded. After being sat, we waited 10 minutes for our server to acknowledge us. She was clearly not happy about something. After telling her twice that my daughter... More

Needing to wait about an hour for the next ferry to return to Woods Hole, we stopped in the Black Dog Tavern for a few drinks. This tavern is a very short walk to the ferry. Located within the immediate area of the tavern is the Black Dog clothing store, children clothing store, and general store. It was about 2pm... More

Black Dog has an extensive menu with something for everyone. From the Lauretta (2 eggs any style with choice of meats and homemade breads) to the Burrito Suavo (soft shell taco filled with scrambled eggs, salsa, jalapeño and avocado the egg dishes are great. The Black Dog french toast and pancake selection is equally delicious. You won't be disappointed at... More

We have been coming to the vineyard for over 30 years. The black dog is always a staple for our family. Today we went for breakfast. The outdoor seating was lovely with a wonderful breeze. Then the food came. The eggs were cold and the French toast was warm at best. We informed the waitress and the response "I will... More
