Second time here. Food is always good. A bit expensive for a family style restaurant. Great views of the harbor and sunset. This restaurant is BYOB so you can save a little $ by not having to purchase alcohol. Be prepared for a corkage fee. $2 per glass for those of us drinking beer.

This is a family restaurant as well as adults having fun! Dry county so BYOB. There is a porch outside and the restaurant is surrounding restaurant o you feel as though you are outside. Views are great! We came at last minute without a reservation. Highly recommend making a recommendation. We were seated at the raw bar and the rest... More

Great time here with our group of 8, 4 Islanders and 4 visitors. Fabulous seafood entrees including scallops on creamed corn with basil oil, and a special striped bass done to perfection, and a plate of oysters and clams for starters. Really outstanding food. The place was packed so reservations were a must, and don't forget to bring your own... More

Enjoyed the Upisland platters and keylime pie and the sunset was beautiful! Was a bit too noisy for a "romantic" dinner.

Our group unfortunately did not have an overall good experience. Shrimp was a bit undercooked and not flavorful, chicken was dry and tough, lobster roll was dry, grilled veggies didn't have that much flavor. 2 lb lobster, gazpacho and steak was good. Our server did a lovely job. The view is fabulous. It's a BYOB.

Staff, owner and food are all excellent. Had the Fried Seafood Platter! Pies were also incredible. Dry town so BYOB or wine. Perfect setting Asst the edge of this quiet little fishing village. Location of Quint's shop in Jaws. Just what you'd expect.

We came here for lunch so the walk up window was how we ordered. There were tables on the side and they brought our food to us. There was a nice view of the harbor. I had the steamers and clam chowder and both were done to perfection. Lots of chunks of clams in the chowder and the steamers were... More

Honestly, you cannot beat the steamers and oysters here. This place is in need of a makeover (and has the business to do it, so I don't know why they don't!) --- maybe because the food and scenery is so incredible good they don't need to. Menemsha is a dry town so BYOB (and plan in advance since the nearest... More

You have two options: eat inside the restaurant or order from the take out window and eat at the tables they have outside. We chose to dine inside the restaurant. The décor, I think is interesting. I’m a big fisherman, and having replica big catch fish on the walls is cool, and the kids got a kick out of seeing... More
