We went to the Black Dog Tavern twice. It is very rustic inside with the mandatory boat parts and signs on the unfinished wooden walls and ceilings. The first time I had the clam chowder, which was good (could have used less potatoes and more clams, but tasty nonetheless) and accepted my wife's offer to try her fried oyster appetizer... More

Love the location that still keeps its tradition. The food is great but the prices are a bit too high for its value.

Easter Breakfast yummy!! Right on the water this restaurant does it all. Enjoyed breakfast, loved their pancakes and all this at a fair price. Server was sweet and attentive while hostess struggled. She seemed to be at a loss with several empty tables and not so many guests waiting for them :) Can't wait to come back

It's been years since I've been here but, my family and I decided to stop in for lunch during our trip to the island. We arrived at the height of the lunch rush but, we were seated and greeted promptly by our server. We ordered 3 lunch plates and one breakfast. The food arrived at the table shortly and we... More

We came for a visit in Martha's Vineyard, and came to eat at this tavern. The burger was tasteless and the salad was like a pile of leafs someone just threw into the plate, no dressing or olive oil. In a few words, try someplace else.

We were told about the place from the Chamber of Commerce visitor center. Right off the boat. Ambiance is very New England island, older, very cool, and nice view of the water. The beet salad was really good, but the French Dip sandwich special was really awesome. Honestly, beef was so tender, gooey cheese, sautéed onions and a fantastic roll.... More

Nice views of the harbor. We went for lunch and breakfast. Lunch server was just ok. Breakfast server was good. For lunch we had the chowder which was good and split a cod sandwich which was just ok. Than returned to try breakfast over the weekend. I had the meat omelet that seemed dry, my wife had a burrito which... More

I love the black dog. It was the first restaurant we went to when we moved to the island. It is rugged like the ocean that surrounds it. The views are enormous. You really feel put back in time. Once the fireplace is going another layer of ambience Is added. The grub is good it's fairly home grown. With a... More
