Best Lobster meal. Price was great, service by our waitress Lindsey was exceptional and the manager Louis was great as well. We are going back this week. If you are in Martha's Vineyards make this one of your stops.

Mediocre food at best. Beautiful view but the food is nothing special. I've been coming to the Vineyard for years and this was a tried and true spot. Not anymore!

That was my experience, very accommodating. We were given a great spot outside, but we asked to be seated inside (no problem). There's only one booth with a window overlooking the people sitting outside and the water we got it and it was great. We...More
