“Best chowder on the Island”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

By far the best chowder on the Island. Lots of clams and a wonderful broth, not the flour and cream base used by most others. Really it is the best.
Since I ordered a Cosmo, they suggested I try a Skinny Dip. It was great. Enjoyed the meal tremendously.

“Scallops”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

The best scallops I have ever had in my life were here. We had an adorable waitress who made our visit even better. It was the end of the season, the crowd was very upbeat - maybe because Carol King was going to do a performance upstairs.

“You have to try ChoCo!”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

We were drawn in by the music filtering out of the restaurant onto the sidewalk. Once inside, we knew we would love ChoCo. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. We always choose to sit at the Raw Bar where the seats are comfortable and there is plenty of room to enjoy the meal. The staff is welcoming and attentive without being annoying. They observe and appear at just the right time without making you feel rushed. The food is well prepared and plated and served hot and fresh. We made a reservation once as we wanted to be sure to be there for our anniversary. We were treated like VIPs and we are just two people who fish the Derby! As far as the value of the experience, the price is higher than the "eat at the picnic table" places but you get exactly what you pay for! The only downside for us is we only get to The Vineyard once a year and it is an awful long wait to get there again.

“Great desserts!”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Just visited Choco for desserts and drinks at the bar. Fantastic service (Anastasia made me a Hot Toddy after hearing I had a cold/cough). Flour less Chocolate cake is to die for!
