The menu changes depending on the season, but there is always their award winning chowde, so full of clams and potatoes, a meal in itself. The scallops and risotto were amazing, but one of the best things about our experience was our server Maggie. Efficient and pleasant. She is very good at what she does. She suggested wine pairings and pre dinner cocktails. They make wonderful martinis. Unfortunately, no room for desert, maybe next time we'll have a drink, some apps and try a desert. And hope we sit in Maggie's station.

My wife and I have now dined a number of times at the Martha's Vineyard Chowder Company in Oak Bluffs and have been impressed each time with the food, the atmosphere, the staff and the prices! And it is open year 'round!

We come to Martha Vineyard several times a year as we have a vacation home there. This time of year is difficult because many places are closed for the season. We tried the MV Chowder Company last night believing it was probably a soup and sandwhich place. We were very surprised. The wine list was extremely good. The clams and oysters were excellent. The roasted chicken was great and the service was as good as any place we have been on the Island. We will definitely be back!

My husband and I decided to try something new on an off-season visit to our second home on Marthas Vineyard. The restaurant wasn't taking reservations but the "call ahead" plan netted us a table after 20 minutes. The restaurant was packed with a very large bar scene. The chowder was good but the "famous" Cho-Cho fritters tasted like plain balls of dough. While our entrees of cod and sea scallops were good they were nothing memorable. The place was very noisy and we were ready to leave by the time the meal was over.

Thanks for joining us at the Chowder Company...I am concerned about your experience and disappointed that you did not have an exceptional meal and experience. Our Clam Chowder Fritters have become so popular with so many thousands of people. As a scratch kitchen there is the possibility that the batch that day was not up to our exceedingly high standards, of perhaps as sometimes happens they just weren't a great fit for your palate. We have not received any complaints in the restaurant and the plates go back empty every time they go out, with many rave reviews. Our Cod and Sea Scallop dishes have been described as "unbelievable" and "best ever" by so many people that again, I am surprised by your experience. I hope you try us again and allow us the opportunity to show you how amazing our kitchen is and how we have earned our tremendous success the last year with providing fresh, affordable cuisine and an amazing staff and atmosphere. Thanks! JB
