This place has been packed every time I have walked by in the summer. This summer my family and I actually decided to try it. Definitely took a few tries, they don't take reservations. We ended up coming twice, very early right when it opened...More

Loved the food. Smoked bluefish cakes are awesome. The brussel/beet salad was good as was the roasted chicken. Sause for the chicken was a bit rich. Mezcal Margarita was good. We sat at the bar and the service was great. I'd go back again for...More

My husband and I went here the first night of our week on the vineyard for our honeymoon. We had an unbelievably amazing experience; our waitress was very sweet, and didn't mind that we ordered a bunch of apps throughout our two and half hours...More

Had dinner here for my birthday and it was a horrible experience all around. Swordfish was pink, cocktails over priced under poured and service was something you'd expect at Applebee's. There are much nicer places to eat on the Vineyard including your own kitchen.

Had some fish tacos and drinks here with friends. The bartender was a lot of fun and the food was creative and really cool. We absolutely will be back.

The food at the port Hunter was really terrific! It has great atmosphere with a game behind the bar which seem to be in the traction for the 20 somethings. We enjoyed a drink at the bar and then we're seated at a high table...More

Worth talking to them. It's one big, open room with a bar on one side and the kitchen in the back. Seems like it could easily be configured for that. The food was exceptional. All exposed brick. Nice atmosphere.
