“Excellent raw bar and sushi!”

Excellent raw bar and sushi! Great view! The ambiance is light hearted and fun. This place is a must for any trip to the Vineyard. Sit on the outdoor deck if you can.

“Best lobster roll of the week !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

After spending a day exploring on the island we dropped of the car a little early for the ferry and headed to Lookout Tavern. Not really a tavern per se, but an open air restaurant with a little bit of everything. Clean and well kept with a very nice staff. I had been eating lobster rolls all week whenever I could and the sauted lobster roll server to me here was fabulous, I wish I could find something even close to it back home ! We also had some of the calamari and I thought it was some of the best I have ever had, great breading and the yellow peppers served with it gave a great added flavor. Be warned there is a new pier being built accross the street so there might be some distraction during the workday, but don't let that stop you from trying a great little joint. Location is very close the the ferry dock in Oak Bluff which makes it great if you are a daytripper as we were.

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Great food and service. The place was packed but they got us in quick and fast service. View was ok but only because they are doing some construction work across the street and we had a view of a backhoe. :-).

“Good Casual Food, Lively Scene”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed a family dinner at the Lookout Tavern. The place lived up to other reviews; loud, lively, and good casual eating menu. The service was fast and friendly. Their lobster roll was stuffed with large chunks of fresh tasty lobster meat and mixed with a light mayonnaise sauce. Their clam chowder was also excellent. The kids meals were typical and average. Currently there is construction across the road which spoils the view of the water, but there are plenty of large screen tvs and people watching opportunities inside the tavern. I would recommend the Tavern to families or groups looking to have a fun meal in a loud atmosphere.
