Fish Market

“Fresh seafood cooked to order. This place is owned and run by the two sisters of The owner of The Net Result in Vineyard Haven. Equally as full of quality. Take out only but sit on the wharf at makeshift tables and watch the fishing boats and fancy yachts come and go. Economical and delicious. ”

Seafood Restaurant

“This is one of my favorite restaurants to enjoy on an early weekend morning. Fresh homemade muffins with a view over a marsh to Buzzards Bay. This is about a 30 minute drive max from the cottage and next to Horseneck Beach; my favorite beach if you walk way down to the quiet ends. This restaurant also serves amazing food for both lunch and dinner. My favorite though is sitting outside on hot summer days. ”

“Open in-season only. In Menemsha, so need to drive, get an Uber or take the bus. Their cold lobster rolls are really really good. Lunch has to also include their rosemary-lemon french fries. They are AWESOME! Order from the take-out window and enjoy your meal on the outside patio overlooking Menemsha Pond.”
