“Ocean to Plate”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

ok ok...so it doesn't roll off the tongue like Farm to Table. For the most part the food here is caught earlier that morning. You can't get any fresher than what's at the counter. You can order fish to take home or you can order some cooked food prior to sunset in Menemsha.

There is a lot more than Lobster Rolls here but when you try one of the Lobster Rolls, you'll have a hard time trying other things. The Lobster Rolls are out of this world. Butter, Hot dog roll and meat...lemon on the side. So simple so good. Try it, you will not regret it!!

“Two words: hot lobster roll”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

This is all the joy of lobster-eating with non of the work. On a tosted roll slathered in melted butter sits about 1/3 lb of freshly cooked lobster. You have the option to squeeze a lemon over it. Fan-tastic.

“Best lobster roll and you get chowder too!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

They have a really good lobster roll. Either cold as a salad or warm on a buttered toasted roll. You sometimes get a whole claw! Then chowder or lobster bisque comes with it. Best deal on the Island. I've tried a lot of the places and I live here, so this is with some authority. Great! Not much in the way of ambiance, since it is a fish market, but go outside and sit by the dock. Great to watch all the fishing boats come and go.
Time your visit to watch the sun set. Usually gets a round of applause.

“Surprisingly great take out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

Best lobster meal on island for any price, but truly great value. The lobster is fresh, sweet, and nicely cracked, the lobster bisque is among the best and the service accommodating. There are many other choices (not true for other Menemsha take outs) that are also well done - my non shellfish eating husband enjoyed picking his own fresh fish to be made into a sandwich. Take the meal to the dock or the beach or home and enjoy, without having to spend 3 times as much for not as good food. Could only be improved with their own, clean space for eating.

“Best chowder on the island. Great fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

It may look scruffy, but it is the best. The owners are caring and friendly. The fish often comes in that morning caught by the owner himself. They sell the best chowder, bisque and lobster rolls on the island. The cooked lobster orders are always ready on schedule.

Unlike any of the competing shops, these owners stay open all year long to serve their community the freshest fish long after the tourist season ends.
