“Nice hidden treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

Clam chowder amazing. Halibut with the lobster fritters, also amazing. Great service and the view of the harbor completed the evening. A must do if you're visiting Vineyard Haven.

“Very good dinner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We went to Blue Canoe week of 9/17, party of 6.

Someone wrote a review that they felt it was similar to a Red Lobster - not sure why - definitely did not get that feeling. It's a quaint restaurant right on the water, great views. We sat upstairs - you can either dine outside on the deck, or inside - we ate inside, but still have nice views.

Food was very good - they have the best salad (Mediterranean) and oysters (Katama) we ever had! The seafood special (chunks of seafood over pasta) and the steak were so, so good! The clam chowder was average - nothing special. The seafood risotto, salmon, and grassy halibut were all good!

Server (I think Chris?) was attentive - very personable. Would definitely return.

“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Great food-swordfish for us. View was surprisingly impressive - vineyard haven harbor view is relaxing and watching the light change was incredible. Service was good especially given that they were pretty busy.

“2 lb Lobster Heaven and Colossal Shrimp!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012 via mobile

Glassed in patio setting right on the waterfront for a fabulous Vineyard Haven Harbor view! Starting with a glass of sparkling wine my husband said his 2 lb lobster was the best ever and my colossal shrimp plate was also the best ever! Our waiter was wonderfully attentive and it made for an extra special evening. We highly recommend this classic restaurant!
