“Great food, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

The Black Dog Tavern on Martha's Vineyard has excellent food, and great service. It's located right on the water, and is close to shopping in Vineyard Haven.

“If on the Vineyard, a must go.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

The Black Dog Tavern a part of the Vineyard mystique. Food excellent, staff good. Be prepared to wait if you do not get there early. Suggest you buy their cookbook, excellent recipes.

“Don't be fooled by the name”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

Our breakfast was a major disappointment. Started off with water served in a cracked plastic glass dripping through the table onto my foot. The waiter was nowhere to be found so went up to the service table and took care of the problem. My wife ordered toast that was hardly toasted, more like stale bread. I ordered their signature home fries dish with cheese, bacon and broccoli. The cheese had been melted then left to cool down to a hard mass by the time it got to me, the broccoli was uncooked, bacon came as greasy little crumbs,

Would not go there again. Just because it's "Black Dog" doesn't make it good.

Tasty fish and chips enjoyed harbor side in this cozy tavern. Place was busy but on a Saturday we were sat right away in my favorite spot!

“Good food, great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

The atmosphere, location and theming are the main reasons for visiting Black Dog; however the food is surprisingly good and not overpriced - everything was cooked exactly as we asked and particular highlights were the Steak Tips and Salmon fillet. Well worth visiting.
