“Best Restaurant on the Vineyard for the Price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2008

Since visiting Marha's Vineyard starting in 2001 and 6 times more, I make sure each time I visit the Vineyard that my wife and I go to the Ocean View in Oak Bluffs. I have never experienced a bad meal. Food consistency has not lapsed over the years. The quality, the service, the salad bar have not disappointed me or my wife one bit. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Martha's Vineyard. And I think compared to other restaurants the prices are very competitive. Give it a try, I do not think you will be disappointed.

“Great food, Great prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2008

The Ocean View is really two restaurants one is fine dining which has great food and for the Vineyard good prices. Seafood is always fresh and tasty. The service is very good and the waitresses are friendly. On the weekend it can get crowded but it is a good size and the wait isn't too long.
The other restaurant is the Ocean view bar and grill which is usually where you find a lot of locals having a drink and relaxing after work. The food is great here and the prices are cheaper than the restuarant. You can still order from the main dining room though if you want. The menu for the grill is great sandwiches and also dinners. It's causal and very comfortable. The service is good whether you want just drinks or something to eat. There is always good conversation going on at the bar. We love to go here and get a quick bite to eat,which is always good and the price is right.

“Family style restaurant with a large menu and room enough for large groups!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2008

Set back from bustling Oak Bluffs Circuit ave is this crowded spot that has two sides to it, a casual dinaing grill and a mid level restaurant. Both sides are large enough for big groups and will cater to the just off the docks crowds that want a good amount of food at a fair price. We ate on the mid level side and the menu is loaded with seafood, steaks, pasta and chicken dishes that will feed an army. There is a loaded salad bar and very large portions. I ordered the scallops and it was so much I couldn't finish it. My wife had the chicken piccante and it was huge as well. This is a no frills places with reasonable prices, plenty of alcohol (Oak Bluffs is one of two towns that will allow liquor to be served on the island). Not a bad place to go to eat in this full of restaurants town. Worth the trip!

“Always a great take!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2006

I've been dining at the Oceanview for years. My family visits the Vineyard often and this is our favorite place. Reasonalbe prices and excellent food. The Pub side is just what you would expect, a bar atmosphere, very casual. The restaraunt side is just slightly more expensive but the food is never a dissapointment. The seafood is always fresh and cooked to perfection!

“Two restaurants in one”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2005

Apparently, this is where the "locals" hang out. The dining room is kind of like a senior center, but the bar area is where the action is. You can order from the full menu and the pub menu from there. The clam chowder is awesome and it's also a nice place to get a decently priced burger. Leave the kids at home (or eat in the main dining room), however...the local old guys can get a bit "friendly." =)
