Great burgers and Gluten free Fries!!! Yum! A must do stop when you're in the Vineyard, wide variety of items including many gluten free options! If you like Sangria... I recommend the Red Sangria!

We've heard about The Black Dog Tavern for years and own Black Dog clothing so we thought we should try it on our recent MV trip. The food was good, our waitress seemed a bit miserable but she was efficient. We did note many of the other waitstaff smiling and looking happy, maybe ours was having a bad day. Chowder... More

This summer , the food is still great ( 100% effort from chefs) but the table and seating service is absolutely terrible. Rude college children appear to be running the show this year . Both a lunch and dinner marred by slow service , attitude and piles of uncleared glasses and plates on tables. We'll be back next year ....... More

We rode our bikes from Oak Bluffs to Vineyard Haven for breakfast and sailing. The Black dog tall ship sailing was a bust but breakfast was great. The Tavern wasn't very crowded and we sat at the window looking at the water. The food was good with cute names for the dishes. The service was excellent and the price fair.... More

Food highly overpriced not well prepared. Had to send fish back two times due to over salting. Turns out they use commercially prepared garlic topping then added even more salt when told not to. Party of 5 nobody happy, ribeye was $42! We were not at the Capitol grill. They managed to over cook it. Small portions for the money.... More

We stopped by the Black Dog for lunch while in Martha's Vineyard recently. Service was a little slow, but the food was great. Nice patio and good ambiance inside and outside. Found the food was a little pricey for a casual lunch and would recommend to check out another place perhaps.

I'm a regular guest year round. I consider it an essential restaurant stop for a visitor. Do get there early in season.
