We felt our first trip to the Vineyard warranted a visit to the famed Black Dog Tavern. A family of four adults traveling in off season over Easter holiday weekend.

We immediately liked the location, the atmosphere, and the fact that there were tables available for our hungry tummies to dine right away! The menu and drink selections were very good! We enjoyed the fresh battered Cod dinner, a Cod sandwich, Eggs Benedict over hash, all of which were very good. The homemade Tartar sauce and Cole Slaw were very pleasing. I particularly liked the fact that you could really taste the freshness and flavor of the fish because it wasn't overpowered with too much breading or that greasy fried taste.

Our service was good, and our food arrived hot, fresh and delicious.

I give the Black Dog a solid 4 out of 5. Worth going to again.

Cute little restaurant with nice view of harbor at Vineyard Haven. Good menu selection. Had the fish sandwich and it was excellent. Service was good, too.

The breakfasts are great.Folks compare it with Art Cliff or Linda Jeans but day in day out Black Dog breakfast is great. Oh and we use their cookbook all the time. One of the best seafood cookbooks going. Never, I repeat never found a bad recipe in it.

Thought it was going to be a tourist trap but was very good- homemade food and huge portions. wait for breakfast was around 15 minutes so not bad- right on the water so you can watch the yachts come and go
