“Best place on the harbor to watch the sunset”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

Lobsterville Bar & Grille is located on Oak Bluffs Harbor. The two dining rooms and outdoor seating are a great place to catch the sunset. We sat on the second floor porch. The specialty cocktail French Pear Martini was perfect on a warm sunny day and paired great with the delicious mussels. They had a great selection of white wines by the glass that went great with dinner. We both agreed we had never had lobsters so fresh and juicy before, they must've been caught that day! Server Dalin was friendly and super attentive. Highly recommended for a lunch or dinner.

“Great views, good food”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

We ate dinner at the Lobsterville Grill after walking around the area and checking out the menus at neighboring establishments. They have a traditional sea food menu which is exactly what we were in the mood for and the noise was less than at Nancy's next door.
The hostess and wait staff were very friendly. The waitress recommended dishes and answered all of our questions about the freshness of the fish, sauce pairings, and drink selection. She checked with the kitchen on a question she didn't know and was back really fast.
Fish here is really fresh and they will cook it like you want, even if it's not traditionally cooked that way. My husband had bass grilled, which can be tricky as it's flaky. It came out nice. Our plates were clean at the end of the meal, meaning everything was good!

We sat outside upstairs and had a great view of the harbor. The waitress also let us move tables to a better view when a table opened up. That is service that I like!

“Delicious food and great view”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

On a recent vacation with extended family and friends, we took the ferry from the Cape to Oak Bluffs for the night and chose Lobsterville to eat...we couldn't have been happier. The view of the harbor was beautiful, we took up the entire outdoor deck and it was so nice. The food though, was what really stood out--the crab dip was delicious, and the calamari was probably the best I've ever tasted. The prices are very reasonable too, wine wasn't too expensive at all and delicious....I highly recommend Lobsterville to anyone looking for a low key seafood dinner and drinks with friends!

“View, view, view”
Reviewed August 7, 2011

Much like it's neighboring Nancy's, Lobsterville offers a great view of the harbor. You can sit downstairs or upstairs and people watch, boat watch, dog watch and enjoy the water. We only went for a light lunch, which we really enjoyed. The panko crusted chicken fingers were delicious! I know it's not seafood, but I wanted a light lunch and it absolutely hit the spot. The service was a bit slow, but we were in no hurry so it didn't matter much.
