We were at Larsen's during mid September but it was still very busy so I don't know how it will be during the summer weekends. The seafood is fantastic and sunset was georgeous.

A must do on martha's vineyard. The seafood is right off the boat. The atmosphere is like you met a fisherman and he invited you to dinner on his dock. Unbelievable seafood. Eating on the beach is pretty cool too.

To visit Martha's Vineyard and not go to Larsen's is like going to Paris and bypassing the Eiffel Tower. First off it's not a restaurant, it's an institution. It's located just before the Menemsha beach, so parking at least off season wasn't too bad. Expect a line out the door, there always is...but it's worth the wait. This is a... More

Nothing is more authentic than a visit to a Seafood Market. Ordered fresh Mussels, Lobster Bisque, Stuffed Quahogs, & Lobster Rollls...cooked while you watch... Then take out back and sit on a crate or picnic table & enjoy the simplicity of it all!!!

As rough as Lobster in the rough can get. But unforgettably delicious whether a lobster or lobster roll. Sit on a crate, gaze over the harbor, get a plastic fork to do amazing things, and eat the freshest lobster you may ever eat. Less frills than no frills, it's about the lobster, dummy.

We had the $2 oysters, opened right in front of you. I didn't see it cheaper anywhere else, it was $3 everywhere else. Really fresh and despite being farmed, they tasted very good. I would eat it there right away, we had some there and then came back to bring some home, the taste wasn't the same. The first time... More

A must if you are picking up some seafood and hitting the beach. Could have a better seating arrangement as most people would like to sit and eat right at the store.

Essential Menemsha I heard about this spot long before I stood in line to walk through the door. It was worth it. We had stuffed quahogs that were divine. We ordered two lobster rolls, one hot (with melted butter) and the other cold. The hot one was the winner by a long shot...just the best I ever had. The stuffed... More

The true dockside dining experience that you will taste with every bite. Lobster was sweet and tender cooked perfectly. Little necks on the half shell were the best I ever tasted. Crab cakes were also some of the best. We sat ocean side on lobster traps and ate off a piece of wood that was on a lobster trap table.

Thank mrlinen2000
