Larsen's is a real fish market and you can get your lobster, literally, just off the boat if you time it correctly. The lobster roll is OK and makes a good lunch to take with you to the beach. You can walk there from the public beach in Menemsha easily enough, but we packed up a few rolls and some smoked bluefish, which was amazing, and took it to Long Point, and it was a perfect lunch in a perfect setting.

You can't go wrong at Larsen's.

I like to go there, eat the lobster and watch the sunset. I go back every year.

This little fisherman village is small but very charming, specially the fish market, the shop was clean and offered a great variety at great prices, once your order is ready you will be accommodated outside on wood boxes and lobster traps as "table and bench". You will eat right outside overlooking the boats, very casual and charming atmosphere, although a bit uncomfortable sits and hot sun.

We have been going to Larsen's for 20 years during our frequent visits to MV, and have never been disappointed but the quality of their fish. The prices can be a bit high, but the quality can't be beat for what you get. The staff are friendly, helpful if you can't make up you mind, and try and speed things along as best they can (the lines here can get quite long in high season and close to sunset when the real Menemsha crowds arrive).

If you like raw shellfish, the clams and oysters can't be beat.

Don't forget to pick up a Larsen's sweatshirt for that chilly moment after the sun sets over the Elizabethian Islands :-)

Larsens is amazing! Do not expect a dine in restaurant though. Really awesome atmosphere, walk in one door, order, pay, walk out the back door and eat your delicious food on the pier or at the beach! The oysters are a must! They shuck them right in front of you and they are SOOO fresh and good!
