They know chowder! Lobster roll and swordfish were fantastic too. Easy to tell all the fish was fresh. A little pricy, but great food.

Thank you so much for the excellent review! Pricing on the island does tend to be higher than off, but we are proud that for comparable menu items, quality and freshness, we tend to be less expensive than most. Because we are a year round business our focus is on affordable, fresh dining that islanders and tourists alike can enjoy. Thank you so much!!

We stayed just across the street from this place. We ate there twice. Both times were very good, although a bit pricey for chowder.

Hi there and thanks for the great review! Our chowder does cost a bit more than most chowders offered on the island yet we feel it is a great value when you compare the contents, the freshness and the fact that it is homemade daily. Thank you so much!!

OB is not known for its fine dining. "ChoCo" is probably the best meal in OB. Don't expect anything exceptional or really high end but it is a nice upscale modern pub-like feel that has decent food. I think it has fallen a notch down since it opened but it is still good. It is right near the harbor and can be busy and noisy during peak season. The prices are not too bad for MV but are still high by mainland standards. I eat here probably 6-8x per year. Good place to have dinner if you are staying on your boat in the harbor...right up the street on the left. Probably the best you can do without driving anyplace. Nice bar, rawbar and aps.

Everything we heard about this place was true. The chowder was some of the best we have ever eaten, that includes Nantucket, and the best restaurants on Cape Cod!
In case you are not a chowder lover, their entire menu is also wonderful. When we visited, my wife ordered a lobstah roll. She talked abbout it for the entire week. WE plan to vist there every time we return to the vineyard. We suggest you place this on your "must visit" list!
