Visiting for the first time. The restaurant was packed, but we got a table right away. The food was fine, nothing to rave about. Was affordable, and the waiter was attentive and pleasant.

We hope that all our guests really enjoy their food and that it's not just "ok" . If you make it back to MV please stop by again and let us exceed your expectations.

We ate here twice during our short weekend stay and we didn't even stay in Oak Bluffs while on Martha's Vineyard. We tried out lobster rolls at 4 different places on the island and concluded that this was the best one and the cheapest. They are not stingy with the lobster and the bun is relatively small, not overpowering and toasted.

The seating outside is great in nice weather. You are right by the water and it's great for people-watching. You get food yourself from the counter, so it's a laid back experience. The tables and benches are good for groups and some are covered with umbrellas.

Try to get Bloody Marys from the oyster bar. They come with 2 huge shrimp in each one. The bar next to the food counter just serves the regular ones.

Excellent food, great location, friendly staff. The view of the marina was perfect to watch the sun set. My husband had the Lobster Roll, which was good. I had the Lobster Ravioli which was WONDERFUL! There was tons of Lobster on top of the ravioli, so much so that I couldn't finish it but my husband was happy to take care of it!

Excellent service, varied menu, perfect view (we sat on stools, in the warmth of the sun, overlooking the harbor) while waiting for our ferry. What's not to love!!! And to be honest all the wait staff/servers were genuinely friendly and more than helpful. We shared the Golden Fried Shrimp Served with Fries and Coleslaw and not a complaint to be had other then when we had to leave. Definitely worth a visit!!
