We had the clam chowder, lobster roll, onion rings, fried shrimp, clams and fish - everything was great. They have a really great selection of seafood.

If you're on the island, this is a great place to call in for a quick fish and chips or seafood takeaway. I had a lovely cod and chips which came with coleslaw, tomato ketchup and tartare sauce, and the blonde had a crab cake with a selection of salads. You can eat at one of the very clean tables...

John's has wonderful fresh fish. This year the selection seems especially good & of high quality. Sandy is making more takeout items too--try the new quiche.

My husband and I go to John's every year and get Sandy's Fish & Chips and usually enjoy them. This year the fish was awful, like it was old and refried and the batter tasted funny. We were disappointed this year.

I ordered a tuna sandwich with fries and a drink and a pound of cooked shrimp for a salad we made that evening. They have a great selection of fresh fish.

If you miss the Lobster Rolls at John's Fish Market in Vineyard Haven, you have missed the best lobster rolls on Martha's Vineyard. A more than generous helping of lobster salad with lettuce on toasted buttered rolls, and plenty of other things to "snack on" as well. No one does it like Sandy--she won't serve you a lobster roll unless... More

I've been buying fish here for years. Very fresh! Very tasty! And when the fish & chips is operating, the fried clams are fabulous. Even when the grill isn't working they have the best lobster rolls on the island. And the homemade dips and spreads are fantastic (crab jalapeno! bluefish pate!). Never miss them.
