Awesome breakfast menu--perhaps one of the best we've had in all our travels. Great location near the ferry dock on the island. Scenic view. Of course the guys had to buy a Black Dog t-shirt to complete the experience.

Visited twice for breakfast and were not disappointed. There were 7 in our group and service was great. Portions were large and reasonably priced. Our orders ranged from omelets, egg dishes, pancakes and french toast. The glasses of orange juice were very large and reasonably priced!

Had dinner at the black dog tavern, part of what seemed like the Black dog compound of stores, bakery, tavern and tall ship boat tours! Quite the family enterprise. My wife really enjoyed her MV lobster while I opted for the steak bites which were recommended by our waitress and quite flavorful. Had my first beer root beer which tasted... More

Nice atmosphere server friendly and... More

The only place with liquor in Vinyard Haven. Views of the harbor. Very good burger. And of course Black Dog merchandise next door

Our first visit to the Black Dog Tavern was definitely Delightful! We ordered the Lobster Roll which was STUFFED with sweet lobster! It comes with fries and coleslaw! All for 26-28 dollars! Well worth the price. We also ordered the fish and chips also Delish, but nothing tops that Lobster Roll! We ordered DESSERT, a cream/custard pie with Chocolate sprinkles,... More

To be honest, we were not expecting much from the food at Black Dog Tavern. We mainly went for the experience and just to see it. But the food was excellent. I have never had such a stuffed lobster roll. True, it is expensive at close to $30. But you are getting your money's worth. There was at least 1... More
