“Best food I had in a long time”

I went there on several nights and have never been disappointed. The staff is very friendly and I would recommend staying at the bar for exactly this reason! Great Chowder and other food on offer. Thumbs up, definitely

When we sat down at a great table we were moved for a party that never showed. Then three out of 7 meals were incorrect. Took over 1.5 hours to get food right. Not worth it.

“nice upscale addition to Oak Bluffs”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

I took my husband to dinner last night at MV Chowder for his birthday. What a treat!! The decor and atmosphere are a nice upscale addition to the town. Our waitress, Kayla, was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive, available right when we needed her. Their signature clam chowder is some of the best we've ever tasted, and we are New Englanders. It was filled with tender clams, and the aroma alone was tantalizing. The menu is mostly fish, but my husband ordered the pork loin and found it impressively presented, flavorfull and succulent. I ordered the seared scallops; also wonderful. Our only complaint is that the apples in the apple crisp could have been a little less firm; maybe a personal preference. We found prices to be competitive for the island. Will definitely recommend to friends and will return. Thanks, JB.
