We experienced the hot and cold lobster rolls along with the clam chowder and lobster bisque. The food was fresh and it was refreshing to sit on the dock while eating. This was a wonderful experience.

Location is on the dock/water: atmosphere = fish market; the quality is right out of the water fresh, the prices are moderate to high but the fish, steamers , clams, scrimps , etc. are wonderful. Fish market and takeout.

We had the most delicious steamers, followed for chowder, the 2 pound yummy lobsters. Amazingly fresh steamers. The lobsters were cracked for us and we ate everything out front on the dock side. Casual and perfect!

If you like linen topped tables and a more formal place to eat, move on, This isn't one of those. It's a small shack on the docks that serves up the freshest boat-to-dock-to-plate seafood you'll find on Martha's Vineyard. Forget going into Edgartown for a...More
