Larsen's sells raw fish as well as prepared food such as lobster rolls and smoked bluefish. It has a large selection of lobsters of various sizes which they will cook for you. We have found that sharing a three pound lobster is a better deal...More

If you like linen topped tables and a more formal place to eat, move on, This isn't one of those. It's a small shack on the docks that serves up the freshest boat-to-dock-to-plate seafood you'll find on Martha's Vineyard. Forget going into Edgartown for a...More

Oysters! So good here. They open them for you right as you order. Everything prepared or served to you as you pay. Then take it out back to enjoy. Almost no seating, and no frills. Just awesome, fresh, seafood.

Good lobster selection. Smoked blue fish pate is always good. Prices are a bit high, but hey it's vacation.

Ordered the "sunset special" of lobster, bisque, slaw and stuffed clam. It was all "fine" - but not the best I ever had. What was special was that I could get it about 100 feet away from the beach and the sit on the rocks...More

Menemsha is interesting in a "fishing village" kind of way and this place seems to be a must do for a lot of people, but I'd skip it. It's a tiny spot where you wait in line to order then take your food out back...More
