This is a great spot for a lunch while shopping in Edgartown. The food is good but not outstanding oh but what a view of the harbor from either the outside upper deck or from the lower level dining room. The service is good and tries to be accommodating. It is a very popular restaurant so at times the wait is long. They to however take reservations so that maybe the way to go.

It was nice to sit out on the balcony overlooking the bay apart from the children playing outside throwing rosehips at one another and then trying to get back into the restaurant over a no entry sign right by our table. A warning from the waitress only bought a slight lull but it did calm down after they left. The food was fine although my crab cakes were slightly soggy and flat. The shared starters were good and the Pina Coladas excellent. Maybe slightly overpriced at 117 dollars but enjoyable nonetheless (when the children had gone)

LOBSTER ROLLS! The most amazing lobster roll I have ever had. It was a generous portion with huge chunks of succulent lobster meat! YUM! Also had the NE clam chowder and that was also very delicious.

Side note - Choices for kids are the usual kid friendly options. My son (8 years old) wanted seafood and they do not offer for kids.

Very nice view just about anywhere you sit.

Awesome food and the Fishermans seafood platter was tasty and plenty of clams, cod, scallops and shrimp. Plenty of fries too. Other than the server forgetting our green beans the experience was good.
