John's has the best fish on island. They're the only fish shop I go to and have been going to them for well over 30 years. Excellent appetizers and other snacks as well.

We stopped here for some food before catching the ferry back to Woods Hole. We had their new grilled sandwiches and what a treat they were. Tasty swordfish in a lemon flavouring with lettuce and tomato in a grilled fresh bread roll. We sat outside and ate our food and thoroughly enjoyed.it. The eating area is really picnic tables but...

Fish is OK here - not the best variety on the island. Prices are on the high side. Suggest you drive to Edgartown and go to the Fish Market there. Much better fish and better prices too.

This is straight from the sea to your plate type of place and it is well worth stopping by and filling up those hungry kids after spending a day at the beach. Inexpensive, quality and family- focused, I'd definitely put it on the list for yummy grub!

We know our chowder on the Vineyard, and John's fish market has the best. We come here every year, and boy is it worth the trek (we stay on the other side of the island). Thanks for filling our bellies with deliciousness!

We stopped at Vineyard Haven on a cruise and although the food on the ship is great, we like to try some of the local spots. Went to Sandy's Fish and Chips with John's Fish Market and were not disappointed. We had to try the Fish and Chips and they had a special of Fish Stew. Naturally I had to... More

Everything I've EVER had from John's Fish Market tasted like it just walked in from the ocean! Their fried clams with the bellies and fish sandwiches are divine, always served with perfect tartar sauce. Prices are reasonable and the selection of everything from lobster, to scallops, to a variety of fish will satisfy any menu you're planning. It's nice that... More

The 'to go' place for take out fish. We added corn and fresh tomatoes to the delicious lobster and had a feast at the house we'd rented.
