Loved sitting up at the bar facing the water. Beautiful views. The sushi is so fresh and delicious. And the hot lobster roll served with butter was perfectly cooked sweet last buster - almost st all huge claws and huge. Great drinks too.

The lookout has a fantastic view of Martha's Vineyard Sound just a few hundred yards from downtown Oak Bluffs. The food, drinks and service is good. I do recommend the lobster tacos. It is also a great place to take the family.

We ate here our first night for a first visit to Martha's vineyard. Busy place, nice view if you get a seat looking out over the water. Best clam chowda and clam strips, crispy. Oh, and tasty bloody mary.
